Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
In the rest of the world Mercedes-Benz trucks are ubiquitous. The Sprinter, Actros, and Viano are everywhere, hauling everything! As a fuel efficient, durable and endlessly modifiable cargo hauler the Sprinter has begun to make inroads in the US. Now, the latest truck from Mercedes-Benz USA is about to arrive!
This “right size” van is about to storm the market. No more ugly, old-fashioned cargo vans that lack comfort, safely and style. “A well-designed commercial van does more than get you from point A to B. With a ruggedly refined design that is just the right size, intelligently constructed features including best-in-class turning radius, passenger-like comfort and Crosswind Assist standard, the new Metris Van is built to propel your business forward.”
I can accept orders now with delivery expected in the fall.
It was almost hard to watch this video. The non-F1 pit stops seem comically slow!
I just posted this new video to my YouTube Channel! Search for BenzBlogger to find my other videos!
I am often asked when we will have “self-driving cars.” I say that we do! A Mercedes-Benz equipped with the Driver Assistance Package has just about all it needs to drive by itself. Yes, it still requires a little input from you but it can handle the hard stuff!
When I started with Mercedes-Benz in 2003 Distronic was a $3000 option that only worked at highway speed and could only keep you a set distance behind the car in front of you. Today the Driver Assistance Package costs just about the same and has a suite of features that sound like the future! Radar Adaptive cruise control that works to a complete stop, Steering Assist, Autonomous braking with Collision Prevention Assist and Cross Traffic Detection, and on and on!

This C63 AMG is for sale and on the showroom floor!
Do you use HOLD braking in your Mercedes-Benz? I use it all the time. Constantly. And if I happen to be driving a car that doesn’t have it I feel exhausted by having to hold my foot on the brake pedal through a whole red light!
Ben is a Mercedes-Benz driver and a Mercedes-Benz fan! He has recently begun reviewing our vehicles and posting them to his YouTube channel and Facebook page. Take a look at this review of the S550 coupe. There is also a review of the Mercedes-Maybach S600 in the works! Thanks for being a fan Ben!
It is amazing how far voice control has come in the last few years! The newer systems understand a wider variety of prompts and seem to be listening better. I rarely need to repeat myself or fight with her about what I REALLY said. Here is a quick video of a couple of commands given in a 2015 S550 (that has the Metallized Ash Wood Trim). Try it!
This is a great way to let the hot air out of your car before you get in or roll up the windows after you have gotten out.
