Mercedes-Benz MLE-Class (ML-Class Facelift) Spy Shots Slider

First it was known as the M, but that wasn’t enough, so it became the ML. Apparently that wasn’t enough because soon it will become the MLE-Class. I wish my investments would grow as much as this SUV’s name has.


Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Track Battle Slider

Any time a conversation moves to the Sprinter van, my ears perk up. If that conversation moves to a Sprinter van track battle, a lot more than my ears perk up.


1.2 Sprinter 319 Bluetec 4X4 ( Panel van )

Vans are pretty awesome pieces of equipment — not minivans, but actual vans. They’re like motorhomes you can drive every day, and that’s pretty cool. All vans currently sold in the United States are two-wheel drive, but that’s about to change because when the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter BlueTEC 4×4 Diesel goes on sale in the U.S. […]

Remember, this won’t quite be for the US market, but here’s something interesting from the press desk of Mercedes-Benz. I’ll be honest, the headline itself had me wincing. As I clicked TopGear’s coverage, I expected to hate the ever-loving hell out of this thing, but truth be told, I quite like it. It’s hard to discuss European […]


Mercedes-Benz G-Class Featured

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has released a list of 12 cars and trucks that are good at being bad for the environment.

Before I get into the details, I have to ask you what you think of the “Edition 1″ GLA45 AMG’s racing stripes. Are they a bit much? Let me rephrase that: Are they a bit much on a crossover? I’ll reserve judgment because I’m sure you have a lot to say about how Mercedes is […]


Fleet-of-Six-1987-Mercedes-Benz-slider

This six-strong fleet of 1987 Mercedes-Benz Unimogs is for sale … yes, the entire fleet can be yours for $200,000. They are also for sale individually, but imagine how cool it would be to have your very own fleet of Unimogs. Imagine making this Unimog fleet a Christmas present for a loved one. You’d never […]


Mercedes-Benz-MLC-Rendered-slider

Mercedes-Benz brass has confirmed to Car and Driver that they will be introducing a new crossover based on the ML-Class that will compete with the BMW X6. Your guess is as good as ours regarding what they would call this thing, but “MLC” is a good start at name speculation. For many, cars like the […]


Mercedes-Benz-Sprinter-2500-Gets-Track-Tested-Home

The public has a right to know the 0-60, slalom and skid-pad numbers of a CIA-stakeout vehicle/European ambulance, and Edmunds is delivering those numbers with a strong dose of humor, as if track testing the 6,008-lb 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 wasn’t funny enough. The original article includes cackle-inducing paragraphs like this: “If we had a nickel […]

In 1886 Karl Benz introduced the very first automobile named the Benz Patent Motor Car. The Benz car sported three-wheels and weighed about 200 lbs. The single-cylinder four-stroke engine produced 2/3 hp at 250 rpm and is considered by most to be the worlds first car. A few months later Gottlieb Daimler unveiled a four-wheeled […]
