Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
We just received our first 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 in Indigo Blue! This is a new color, only available on the 2014 E-Class. It is really hard to get colors to show up properly in pictures and on your monitor. I would say this color most closely resembles Steel Grey but in blue instead of grey. It is much lighter than Lunar Blue but nothing like Quartz Blue. It is not purple. It looks purple on my screen. I might describe it as slate or denim. Come take a look!
This stunning 2014 E350 just arrived and it is the most interesting E350 we have had yet! Look at those headlights! That leather! The wood trim! If you have been wanting something a little different than your basic E350…this is the one! Call me!
Here are a couple of close-ups on the Brown Satin Ash Wood. It looks somewhat different in person. I recommend taking a look if you get the chance!
Pricing for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz models is out…for everything except the S-Class. Here you go!
We just received a very sporty 2014 E350 wagon! This beauty is currently dressing up our showroom.
Here are some close-up pictures of the H79 Aluminum Trim. This trim has a texture or pattern that the Aluminum Trim did not used to have. It looks almost like a carbon fiber trim at first glance! Very European!
Atlanta Classic Cars installed our first Illuminated Star on a 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 today! I was worried it would be a little too flashy but it is well done and fairly subtle. It really does add a WOW factor the the vehicle! It was hard to take good pictures in the daytime but I did want to show how the housing for the bulbs is a full star and circle behind the chrome emblem.
I have often heard it described as the answer to a question that no one asked. However, it is the favorite of many enthusiasts and gets rave reviews from anyone who drives it! You know you want one!
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Classes started to arrive yesterday and today was my first chance to take a closer look and a test drive. The changes to the interior are subtle but noticeable. The ambient lighting, additional aluminum accents and central clock give it a richer look. There are changes to the steering and ride quality that make it more quiet and comfortable. The most noticeable changes are to the exterior and it looks great! The new nose reminds me a lot of the CLS-Class. Here are some side-by-side comparison pictures so you can judge for yourself!
And a close-up of the new nose!
Ok, Who found all 8,000 changes?
Our first shipment of 2014 E-Classes just arrived! I have been looking forward to seeing the changes in person and so far I am impressed. It looks sleek and modern. Hopefully they will be inspected ready to show by tomorrow afternoon! I will park one next to a 2013 E-Class and compare.
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has been released for sale! They should begin shipping to the dealerships this week! Update: Expected shipping date is April 19th!
Pricing has also been released:
From the Owners’ Manual:
“The ECO display gives you information on how economical your driving style is. The ECO display assists you in achieving the optimum driving style in terms of consumption, taking the actual and selected conditions into consideration. Your driving style can significantly influence the vehicle’s consumption.
The ECO display consists of three bars:
The percent value is the average value of the three bars. The three bars and the mean value begin at the value of 50%. A higher percentage indicates a more economical driving style.”
I have been watching my ECO Display while driving all month. The picture above is the best I have been able to acheive during my morning commute. This is all surface streets with stop lights and stop signs. I have seen it as low as 0% and as high as 75% but I usually end up between 40% and 45%.
The ECO Display is accessed by the steering wheel controls. When you can see the odometer push the up or down arrows until you see the ECO Display. Has anyone else tried using this screen to drive more economically? I think I will get about 20 more miles on this tank of fuel than I usually do…not a big improvement.
