Motor Trend Review of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG

Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG 2013 “No rational person can make an argument for buying a 525-hp SUV. The fact that AMG offers a performance package that bumps the power up to 557 hp makes me believe there aren’t a lot of rational people responsible for building them, either. Have we mentioned we love AMG?”

“Even with a 40/60 front/rear power split, the stability control won’t allow you to drive the car with the throttle. Once things start to get out of shape, the electronics call a timeout and reel things back in. It is amazing just how hard you have to push to find those limits, and the idea of any rational person finding them is unlikely.”

“Interior quality took a major leap forward in the redesigned ML, and the AMG version takes it another step farther. Material quality is luxurious and attention to detail abounds in spots only contortionists would be able to see. Even the doorjambs look as though they spent time in the design department to match the clean, uncluttered aesthetic.”

“Herr Kallenius boasts that the new ML 63 AMG is the most powerful SUV for sale today. In the same train of thought, he also says the AMG biturbo V-8 is among the cleanest engines for the power output. “AMG is a test lab for new technology that will trickle down into lower segments at Mercedes.”"

2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 arrives at Atlanta Classic Cars!

The 2012 ML350 arrived late last night! Our first model is Black/Black with the Premium 1 Package. This one is ready to test drive and there are more on the way!

I have been on several test drives today and I am most impressed by the new speed sensitive electromechanical steering. It makes maneuvering in parking lots incredibly easy and feels great at high speeds too. The interior is beautiful, comfortable and technologically impressive.

2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 and C250 Coupe and Sedan at Atlanta Classic Cars!

The 2012 ML350 4matic, 2012 C250 Coupe and 2012 C250 Sedan stopped by the dealership yesterday for salesperson training. It was great to see the cars in person and get some hands-on experience! Thanks to Curtis, Dennis and team for spending the day with us!

The 2012 ML350 4matic looks fantastic. It is still an M-Class – it has just about the same overall size a capabilities – but it is certainly new and improved! The lines look very moden and all of the lights are bright and distinctive. The interior is fantastic. It might just be worth springing for the Full-Leather Package to get the contrast stitching and piping. This particular vehicle is a pre-production model so there may be some slight changes to what you see on the car when it arrives at the dealership.

The 2012 C250s looked great too! The coupe is stylish and loaded with tons of standard equipment. None of our competitors have standard split folding rear seats or the panoramic roof! The new interior on the sedan is a big improvement. The new NTG 4.5 on all of these vehicles (that is the nav system) is awesome! When I have one handy I’ll post a video of some of the new features.

When we finished with our training they packed the whole set-up into the back of the ML350! That is about 30 folding chairs, 4 big totes and a folding table. Great cargo capacity!
