The AMG Driving Academy is an amazing day at the track! It gives you the opportunity to drive our AMG vehicles in a way that you just can’t experience on normal roads. Whether you are an AMG owner looking to see what the car can do (without wearing out your own tires) or an enthusiast looking to be impressed this event is the one for you!

The 2013 schedule has been announced and they are coming back to Road Atlanta…and some other world famous tracks! You can view the full schedule at the AMG Driving Academy site.

If you purchased a AMG vehicle in the 12 months preceding an event you are eligible to attend the one-day Basic class for free through the AMG Purchase Reward Program.

If you want to see what you’ll experience at the event you can take a look at my previous posts. Please excuse all the giggling in the videos…it is just so fun!

Motor Trend Comparison: 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL450 vs. 2012 E350 Wagon!

What a fun test! I’ve never had anyone directly comparing these two models but anything that draws attention to our great wagon is fantastic! You can create your own comparisons at the MBUSA site.

2013 E350 wagon

“Many kids grow up with minivans and sedans, but the lucky ones spend time riding  in the third-row jump seat of an E-Class wagon. The seats, which are located in  the cargo area and face backward, provide a cocoon-like environment where the  rear hatch window gives a unique outside view.”

“On the other hand, the GL’s more conventional third row seems spacious and  welcoming enough for passengers as tall as Big Bird.”

“And while the GL450 provides a higher seating position, visibility is slightly  better in the E350 wagon, making it much easier to maneuver around texting  tweens in a mall parking lot or to stay within SoCal’s narrow freeway lanes.”

“Not only is the GL surprisingly fast, but it sounds quite good, too — drive  with the windows and sunroof open and the combination of the deep exhaust growl  and faint turbo whine provides a strangely entertaining sense that you’re  driving a refined city bus.”
