The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Coupe is everywhere right now! This top of the line 2-door is an all-new model for Mercedes-Benz but is essentially a replacement for the outgoing top of the line 2-door, the CL-Class.

It has been featured in the Future Vehicles section of MBUSA.com for a while and is now showing at the Geneva Autoshow.

Now is the time to order! While pricing is not yet finalized we have the options list and the order banks are open. Based on the demand for the redesigned S-Class it will be a while before you see a 2015 S-Class Coupe available for sale in the showroom!

Mercedes-Benz 2011 CL550 Carries the BlueEFFICIENCY Badge

As the first of our vehicles to receive the new 4.6 liter bi-turbo V8 engine with direct injection, the 2011 CL550 4MATIC Coupe is also the first non-hybrid, non-diesel to receive the BlueEFFICIENCY badge.

BlueEFFICIENCY is the guiding principle for the environmentally responsible development of passenger and commercial vehicles offered under the brands of Daimler AG. BlueEFFICIENCY is not one type of engine or technology but rather a comprehensive approach to improving efficiency while reducing environmental impact.

The new 4.6 liter bi-turbo V8 offers a reduction in fuel consumption and carbon emissions while providing increased horsepower and torque. It is the best of both worlds! Going forward, all of our direct injected vehicles will get the BlueEFFICIENCY badge.

Automobile Magazine Drives the 2011 CL550 and CL63 AMG

“For 2011, that doyenne of decadence, the Mercedes-Benz CL coupe, has undergone a bit of restyling at the front and rear, although the more substantive changes are under the long hood.”

“The CL550 engine has gone from 5.5 liters to 4.7 liters, but it gains two turbochargers and direct injection. Output jumps by 47 hp to 429 hp, and torque increases by nearly a third, to 516 lb-ft.”

The CL63′s powertrain features even more changes and ushers in a new era for AMG. The old 6.2-liter normally aspirated V-8 gives way to a new twin-turbo, direct-injected 5.5-liter, an update that will eventually come to all of AMG’s “63″ models (including the S63, which gets the new engine concurrently with the CL). Standard output is 536 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, up from 518 hp and 465 lb-ft.”

“Not only does it snap off superquick gearchanges and match revs on downshifts, but it [The CL63 AMG] now also equals the smoothness of a torque-converter automatic when taking off from a stop.”

“Speaking of stops, the CL63 incorporates an auto stop/start function-a first for Mercedes (outside of its hybrids)…The auto stop/start function works well, restarting quickly enough so as not to impede takeoff.”

“The appearance tweaks and substantially improved powertrains should help keep the big Benz coupes relevant and on the radar of an audience whose stature is undiminished.”

You can read the full article in the January 2011 issue of Automobile Magazine or online here.

2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and CL-Class Pricing Announced

The 2011 S-Class and CL-Class models are scheduled for release in November.

2011 S-Class Sedans:

  • S400 Hybrid  MSRP $91,000
  • S550 MSRP $93,650
  • S550 4MATIC MSRP $96,659
  • S600 MSRP $158,050
  • S63 AMG  MSRP $138,000
  • S65 AMG MSRP $209,000

  • CL600 MSRP $157,000
  • CL63 AMG MSRP $150,250
  • CL65 AMG MSRP $209,300
New CL63 AMG – Video

The S63 and CL63 have been updated to include AMG’s newest motor, the direct-injected 5.5 liter twin turbo. Along with the engine stop start system found in the S400 these new models provide more horsepower with increased fuel economy. It will be interesting to see if the addition of the stop start system will eliminate the wonderful rumble the current cars produce at start-up or if everyone around will now hear this every time an AMG fires up to leave a stop light. Another great benefit of going to a twin turbo setup is that it will be much easier to increase power output over the coming years or much sooner for with a quick visit to Kleemann or Renntech. The new motor’s increase to 571hp and 663 lb-ft of torque should keep you entertained for a while but it’s good to know that there is more power available when you’re ready.
