Forbes Loves a Mercedes-Benz Diesel Too!

“The truth is that while there is a price premium (roughly $5,300 on average) associated with the initial purchase cost of diesel vehicles, they typically get 30% better gas mileage and flaunt superior torque numbers and reliability ratings. The automotive analysis firm Vincentric estimates that driving a diesel car will save $2,117 in fuel costs over one year assuming annual rate of 15,000 miles.”

“But the purchase of something special, like the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL350 Diesel, is financially justifiable based on the total cost of ownership: the GL350 Diesel costs $8,315 less to own than its GL350 cousin.” (I think they mean GL450 cousin)

Starting Over – 2005 E320 CDI to 2014 E250 Bluetec!

Mike really loved his 2005 Mercedes-Benz E320 CDI that he bought as a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle in 2007…

It was a fantastic vehicle for his long commute and frequent travel. In the 6 years he owned it he put on about 210,000 miles and really enjoyed the fuel economy. In fact, over the last 40,000 miles he was averaging almost 33 mpg in mixed driving! That is excellent considering the car was rated at 23 City and 33 Highway by the EPA.

But, it was time to make a change and the all-new 2014 E250 Bluetec was calling his name! Now, this one is rated at 28 City and 45 Highway by the EPA. I can hardly wait to see what he gets in the real world!

Here’s to another quarter of a million miles! Thanks Mike!

2014 Mercedes-Benz E250 Bluetec Arrives at Atlanta Classic Cars!

45 mpg mercedes diesel

Do you see that?! The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E250 has been at the port waiting to get EPA certified and it was worth the wait! Our first shipment of four E250′s has arrived with these gorgeous numbers in the window! 45 mpg on the highway will get you about 950 miles on a single tank! Even at the average of 34 mpg a 21.1 gallon tank will go 717 miles before filling up!

Road Trip – 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 Gets 27.4 MPG!

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

I went for a little road trip today in a 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350. I drove about 120 miles round trip to Fayetteville, Georgia and had a great time! I used less than a quarter of a tank of fuel, seamlessly navigated the highways and rural roads, and interacted with several of our new systems.

Mercedes-Benz V6 Fuel Economy
The 2014 E350 is officially rated at 21 City and 30 Highway but I think it is better than that! I had a lot of stop and go once I got off the main road and the fuel economy is still closer to 30 mpg!

eco start stop

This may be my best ever Eco Display score. Normally on the way to work it gets down into the single digits! Notice in the picture that I am using both the ECO Start/Stop function and the HOLD braking feature at the same time!

The E-Class is a very busy car and there are a lot of features. Here are a few of the features I interacted with on my little trip:

  • Navigation using voice control to enter the destination as well as a waypoint and an alternative route.
  • Collision Prevention Assist alerted me twice that I was closing the gap to the vehicle in front too quickly and boosted the braking power when I did apply the brakes.
  • ECO Start/Stop shut down the engine at stop lights and stop signs to reduce emissions and conserve fuel.
  • HOLD braking allowed me to rest my legs at lights.
  • Rain Sensitive Windshield Wipers kept the glass clear through sprinkles and downpours.

…all that in just 2 hours! Imagine what this car could do for you all the time!

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4Matic Training at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Mercedes E63 at Atlanta Classic Cars

I was lucky enough to spend a few hours yesterday with this amazing 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4MATIC. We received some technical training and some hands on experience with Race Start and the updated parking assist.

I kept trying to get a picture that really showed off the 19″ matte black 10-spoke wheels (code 752). I am normally not a fan of black wheels but these really complimented the car.

I am now prepared to talk for at least 30 minutes about all of the changes that AMG made to the E63 AMG to make it even more aggressive and exciting on the road. The wider fenders are impressive, the lower facia is artwork and the quad exhaust sounds great!

With all of the exterior upgrades I almost forgot to check out the interior! The AMG styling is present here as well with the sculpted seats, console gear selector and meticulously stitched dashboard.

I am so jealous of all of the people attending the AMG Driving Academy at Road Atlanta this weekend. I would love a little more seat time with this beauty!

Thanks to our AMG Expert John Sands for bringing this car by and I look forward to seeing you again soon for our CLA45 AMG training!

2014 E-Class Commercial – “The Soccer Ball Thing”

Ever since this commercial started airing customers have been coming in and asking for “the thing with the girl and the soccer ball.” So, for clarification, that “thing” is Distronic PLUS with PRE-SAFE and Pedestrian Recognition. This is part of the Driver Assistance Package on the 2014 E-Class.

Here is a video about how it actually works.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet Soft Top Colors – Red, Blue and Brown!

E350 red top convertible

My inventory manager is on a quest for color! After years of stocking E350 Cabriolets exclusively with black soft tops we currently have all four soft top colors in stock! Now I will try to tell you what these colors really look like. We (ok, I) have named the cars for easy reference.

Meet Strawberry! This Iridium Silver E350 cabiolet has a red soft top and a red leather interior. It is a very sporty and striking look. I love how the top and the taillights look from the back. The red top is not bright red and it is not maroon. I am going with not quite brick red as my description.

And here is Blueberry! The blue top is not a new color for Mercedes-Benz but the Deep Sea Blue and Silk Beige Interior is a first. We have also paired it with Lunar Blue paint for the Blue/Blue/Blue combo! The interior is midnight blue. The top is dark navy and the paint is bright navy. All of these colors go surprisingly well together.

And finally here is Mocha! This was the hardest color to capture because it is out in the sunshine. This in a Polar White E350 cabriolet with Silk Beige Interior and the new Brown Soft Top. The Beige top from last year was very popular with white cars but this is different. I think it is a coffee color. Deep brown, no red or orange undertones. You might mistake it for black if it were driving by fast.

I have never had such a variety on convertibles in stock and I may never have it again! If you are thinking about getting something new and different this is your opportunity! Please come by and take a look in person as my pictures and descriptions are woefully lacking. Strawberry, Blueberry and Mocha are all looking for good homes.
