A bunch of us in the Texas Auto Writers Association recently got together in Dallas to drive three models from Mercedes-Benz, as well as dozens of other vehicles, during the TAWA’s 2015 Auto Roundup.


Mercedes-Maybach Pullman

Mercedes-Benz is bringing Maybach back with a vengeance. In fact, it’s included the name in a new sub-brand: Mercedes-Maybach. There’s now another model in that portfolio: the Pullman S600.


Maybach 2

Mercedes couldn’t quite make the resurrected Maybach ultra-luxury brand work as a standalone vehicle line. Perhaps it will have better luck with the Mercedes-Maybach S600.

Fast and fastest. There’s a word that goes between those two: faster. That’s what the 2016 C450 AMG 4MATIC is going to be, relative to the C400.

Not only is Mercedes-Benz taking on the BMW X6, it’s taking on the high-performance X6 M. Say “hello” to the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupe 4Matic.

Mark your calendars for this fall. That’s when the 2016 C350 Plug-In Hybrid will go on sale in the United States.

Hybrid cars, including those of the plug-in variety, have been on the road for quite a while. By now, I thought the perception of them as slow or boring would have gone away, especially since models such as the Porsche 918 and Ferrari LaFerrari exist. I guess I was wrong. Mercedes-Benz is pushing the point that its upcoming 2015 S-Class Plug-In Hybrid is no snoozer-cruiser. Find out more about it after the jump.

I get the feeling that when Autoblog tested the Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe, the Billy Joel song “Just the Way You Are” was playing through its speakers. In the site’s review of the S63 AMG Coupe, it basically tells the less-powerful two-door, “Don’t go changing to try and please me.” Autoblog seems to love it just the way it is. That’s not to say the publication hates the S63, though. See what I mean after the jump.

Mansory, surprisingly, didn’t go all freaky with the M1000, which is based on the new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, and left the exterior rather subdued. That’s a good thing because there’s 1,000 horsepower under the hood, making this sedan one of the best sleepers ever.

We all have our own unique ways of celebrating major accomplishments. Some of us indulge in a fancy meal at our favorite restaurant after getting a graduate school acceptance letter. Others go out and buy a pricey gadget as a personal gift for landing a huge promotion. Mercedes-Benz builds its own trophies.
