Motor Trend Comparison: 2013 Mercedes-Benz S350 Bluetec and S400 Hybrid!

Mercedes S350

“…We recently spent a few weeks with both cars to find out which green machine does the better job of combining fuel-sipping efficiency with the sky-high levels of refinement expected in an S-Class.”

“Diesel-powered Benzes have come a long way since then, and the S350 Bluetec is a  fine example. Its turbocharged V-6 is completely modern and clean-burning,  sending 240 hp and a whopping 450 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels via a  seven-speed automatic and Benz’s 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.”

“According to our data, the S350 and S400 are tied in almost every test  evaluation.”

“Around town, the hybrid feels plenty strong, and its stop-start system is one of  the smoothest applications we’ve experienced.”

“The Bluetec, however, has already proven how well it shines out on the open  highway. Last summer, editor-at-large Angus MacKenzie drove an S350 from L.A to  San Francisco and averaged 29.2 mpg on the 913-mile trip.”

Georgia License Plates – Standard and Standard Alternate Tags

The State of Georgia has lots of choices for your license plates – you can see all of them at the Department of Revenue site. However, if you do not want to pay for a specialty tag you still have two choices.

The Standard Tag

and the Standard Alternate Tag

Make sure to specify! In my experience people have pretty strong feelings about the Standard Tag and might prefer the single peach on the Standard Alternate Tag!

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan and Wagon – New Colors – Hyacinth Red and Covelline Blue

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is ready to order! Our first 2014 E-Classes are scheduled to be built in March with an expected late spring release date. Now is the time to get your order in if you want to be the first one on the block with a refreshed E-Class! A lot of the options and colors carried over from the 2013 but there are two new colors coming – Hyacinth Red Metallic (code 996) and Covelline Blue Metallic (code 585).

These are the swatches from the ordering guide:

I have not seen either color in person yet so I cannot interpret them for you. I think the Hyacinth Red might be the same color featured on the 2014 CLA-Class pictures shown on the future models page.

So, if you have had Black, White and Silver…maybe it is time to branch out!

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4MATIC S-Model!

2014 CLS all-wheel drive

Mercedes-Benz is sharing a lot of AMG information today! We now have a gallery of pictures for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4MATIC on the Mercedes-Benz Facebook page!

This is the first mention I have seen of the S-Model nomenclature. This type of upgrade has been available as the P30 or P31 Performance Package on several AMG models. The badging should help others to recognize that you don’t just have the 550 horsepower AMG but the 577 horsepower and almost 600 lb-ft of torque version!

Now I have to practice saying “2014-Mercedes-Benz-CLS-63-AMG-4MATIC-S Model.” I am sure we can add a -TRONIC or -ASSIST in there somewhere!
