    It’s that odd time of the year where press loaners are changing over from one model year to the next. That tends to limit availability, plus our local auto press association does an annual rally this time of year making loaners even more scarce. So, I dug into the archives to review this Mercedes-Benz GLB, […]

    Have you thought about the Mercedes-Benz CLS450 in a while? It’s okay if you haven’t. I’m curious if Mercedes itself is thinking about it. The vehicle as it sits today is totally fine. But when the rest of your lineup exists in or is moving towards a zone of stellar awesome, fine doesn’t cut it. […]

    The Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 is a less useful GLS, but it is damn nice on the inside and super smooth out on the road. I logged a ton of miles in this one, and here’s what I found. Disclaimer: Mercedes tossed us the keys to this GLS600 and included a tank of fuel.

    I have a love-hate relationship with the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E450 All-Terrain. What I love is the fact that it’s an E-Class wagon. That means it’s well built, looks great, drives perfectly, and is comfortable inside as well. What I hate is the off-road SUV cosplay happening with the name and body cladding. [Disclaimer: MB tossed […]

    It seems all new vehicles have to be crossovers or SUVs.  This trend has made sedans, wagons, and pretty much every other interesting car disappear from the market, for this reason, I have a general disdain for them.  There are a few exceptions that prove the rule, but they have to do something special. Toyota […]

    I was contemplating what analogy would work best in describing the AMG GT63S, several came to mind. If the band Pantera was also MBA Ivy League School graduates. Sexy Beast (very underrated movie) and as the title suggests.  A German Hellcat. Sexy Beast is apt because, well, the GT63S is a great looking car, and 0-60 in […]

    I’ve wanted to drive the Mercedes-AMG E63S wagon for… a long time now. Did it live up to the hype I created in my head? Oh yes. This is one damn fine machine. It’s rare to find a wagon for sale in the US. Now add in the fact that this one is powered by […]

    The Mercedes-Benz Metris leaves me wanting a cargo van. The Metris starts at $32,585 and makes for a great #VanLife platform. Sure, it doesn’t seem like a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine would be enough for adventure, but 258 lb-ft of torque available down low is nice and punchy. A Metris would be an awesome weekend-warrior camping […]

    The 2020 Mercedes-Benz G550 is touted as both luxurious and one of the world’s best off-road machines. Does it live up to the hype on either end? Oh yes. We took the MB G550 for a drive on our local trails and the fancy truck performed flawlessly. And it should with a starting price of […]

    Last year, I wrote a lengthy Hagerty article about the W212 E-class Mercedes, which was manufactured from 2009 until 2016. In the process, I looked up all the engine specs and various driveline components. I also looked at a hundred of pictures of that vehicle. In a Stockholm Syndrome-like way, I have grown to appreciate […]
