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.

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.

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.
