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!

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.”

2013 Mercedes-Benz E350 – Roadtrip!

2013 E350 feuel economy

I went on a holiday roadtrip in my new 2013 Mercedes-Benz E350! It was cold, snowy, windy and rainy but the car did a great job! I felt safe and warm the whole time. My fuel economy is a little bit down from past trips but I think that was due to the rough weather and a very full trunk of presents!

In other fuel economy news, a 2012 E350 bluetec purchased here about a year ago is getting 40 mpg!  Thanks for sharing Hunter!

2013 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Accessories – Sport Tail Lamp Kit with Clear Lenses!

There are lots of ways to customize your Mercedes-Benz! These Sport Tail Lamps with clear lenses recently became available and we installed them in a 2013 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. I parked a standard tail light car next to it for comparison. The clear lenses give it a very custom, European look in my opinion. I bet it would look very dramatic on a black car!

If you are interested in swaping your lights the part number is A2129061658 and the cost should be about $770 plus labor.

Customer Testimonial – My 2011 E350!

26 mpg 2011 E350

The lease on my 2011 E350 is up this month so I took it out for one last road trip! 5 days, more than 1800 miles and a little bit of mud later we are back in Georgia. The E350 averaged nearly 26 mpg in mixed driving – about 1500 highway and another 300 in town. I am still impressed with the comfort, handling and good looks of this vehicle. I might miss it a little when I turn it in!

2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG – Motor Trend Road Test

Mercedes-Benz E63 Indium Grey

“Sometimes, though, the stars align and we’re given a perfect car for a given  situation. Such was the case when I had the keys to a 2012  Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG for four days.”

“I carried friends in their 30s and parents in their 60s in the rear seat and  didn’t hear a single complaint – rather, I got a couple positive remarks on leg  room. Let there be no doubt – the E63 can carry four adults in total comfort for trips to dinner (and probably  longer).”

“There are more driver-oriented cars than the E63, more powerful cars, more  expensive cars, and cars with more wow-factor. But few can satisfy demands for  performance, practicality, and elegance in the way an E63 can.”
