“Interestingly, it still builds G-Class models in the same manner it did three decades ago. If you’re looking for automation or robotic aids, you’ll find precious little along the G-Class assembly line. The vast majority of each truck is hand-built, including the body…”
“Commercial-grade and military-spec vehicles – including some wild 6×6 chassis cabs destined for the Australian army – are built right alongside G550 and G63 models.”
“We were impressed with the G’s ability to settle down and scamper over terrain that would be incredibly difficult for a human to traverse by foot, but the demonstration wasn’t over yet. A factory driving team then proceeded to race us down the mountain on the same paths, but at a seemingly suicidal 35-40 mph. I’ve yet to examine my x-rays, but I’m certain a few of my internal organs appear as if they went three rounds in a UFC octagon. The G-Class? Though it bounced, shook, and swayed its way down the mountain, the G was no worse for the wear. Impressively, there were no buzzes or rattles during the whole ordeal, and the only squeaks came from the mortified passengers, grabbing any available handle with snow-white knuckles.”
Earlier this month, SiriusXM took a significant step forward in improving the quality of its industry-leading Traffic service.

One of the salespeople got his Lighting Adaptor for the iPhone 5 today so we tested it with the Mercedes-Benz iPod/MP3 Interface Cable in an E-Class. It works! The adaptor is the little white square in thepicture above. It charges the phone, it plays the music, no problems. Here is the link to your $30 solution.
It’s here! This is our first 2013 GL350 Bluetec!
The 2013 diesels have been released! They should start shipping to dealerships in the next few days and arrival time will depend on trucking. Luckily my dealership is near the factory so we should see them soon!
“Little did we realize just how badly the GL would bully the other 10 competitors. At the end of our testing, we’d narrowed the field down to three potential winners: the GL, the Ford Escape, and the Nissan Pathfinder. But in truth, it was no contest.”
“The real point, however, is how totally and completely the new GL dominates this segment. Calling it best in class is the definition of an understatement. It’s the best the class has ever seen.”
“At first glance against our six criteria — Performance of Intended Function, Design Advancement, Engineering Excellence, Efficiency, Safety, and Value — the Mercedes nails five of them. Value is, of course, the sticky wicket. But as stated earlier, when you start comparing apples to apples, the GL is no more expensive than the vehicles it directly competes against.”

“Its interior styling is more luxurious than the previous-generation model, with one of the nicest improvements being the massive piece of burled wood covering the dash from edge to edge.”
“Most of the judges liked the styling changes, and everyone agreed the GLK is an exceptionally fun vehicle to drive. It’s quick, nimble, and confidence-inspiring, with exceptional braking.”
“For our 2013 Sport/Utility of the Year competition, the overwhelming majority of the competitors were car-based. There was one that wasn’t though, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, a vehicle that in the words of technical director Frank Markus, “did more of what we expect an SUV to do.””
Good luck to both competitors! The results will be available on October 15th.
