Mercedes-AMG GT S Review by Jalopnik

GT S Review

The Mercedes-AMG GT S is SO FUN! That is my official review. Jalopnik recently drove one for the weekend and came to a similar conclusion. I love the colorful language in this review.

“So how do you make a car this expensive, this wild, this over-the-top, and still make it absolutely great? I’m still not sure how Mercedes did it, but the Mercedes-AMG GT S, incredibly dumb name and all, is great.”

“I thought it might be an attempt at a sporty coupe for general-practice doctors from a car company that makes big and heavy yachts for thoracic surgeons.”

“Plus that button just looks like a twin-barreled cannon carried around by a demented robot.”

“Foot on the brake, press the ENGINE START/STOP button, make sure the loud exhaust is in the “on” position, because the quiet setting is mostly just for unexpected funerals and pre-getaway crime, and then make sure the parking brake is off.”

“It’s direct and communicative, and even though you sit approximately 900 miles from the tip of the car, you still know at all times what the front of the car is doing. ”

“It’s a car that you not only want to drive, it wants to be driven right back at you. And there’s nothing I could possibly want more.”

AMG Engine Builder Video!

Recently an AMG buyer used YouTube to invite his engine builder for coffee to discuss the process. The builder couldn’t make it to coffee but did post this video in response!

The 2017 E-Class Due This Summer

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the all-new 2017 E-Class. There are great pictures and details available in the Future Vehicles section at MBUSA.com.

  • Yes, the only engine at launch is the 4-cylinder with 241 horsepower and the same torque as the V6.
  • No, no pricing yet. Probably closer to the launch date.
  • Yes, it looks like a mixture of C-Class and S-Class with some new twists thrown in!
  • No, I haven’t seen it yet. My training is June 9th and that is likely the first time I’ll see it.
  • Yes, you can order one now.
Ordering a Mercedes-Benz – Worth the Wait!

I have had a bunch of orders arrive this month and they looked great! Without exception the new owners are thrilled to have a vehicle that is exactly what they wanted and unique in the marketplace. The customers waited between 60 days to 8 months for these masterpieces!

Comparing the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 and the 2016 GL450

2017 GLS vs GL450

The refreshed 2017 GLS450 arrived this week and I know you want to see the differences! The GLS is on the left and the GL is on the right. These cars are the same color with similar equipment.

I made a video too! (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel!)

Here is a side-by-side of the interior changes. The color is strikingly different between the Ginger Beige in the 2017 and the Almond in the 2016. (I’m sorry that the steering wheels are upside down.)

GL vs GLS

So, there you have it! The 2017 GLS450 vs. the 2016 GL450. An evolution…

GLK Survives a Hail Storm!

A client of mine in South Carolina sent me this testimonial recently:

Mercedes GLK

“We had one heck of a hail storm here yesterday evening. My GLK was parked outside with one of the other members of the white Mercedes club (that’s what you call it when everyone in the family has a white Mercedes), and there was a Chevy and a Honda on either side of us when it hit. Once the sky cleared, the Chevy was as dimpled as a golf ball, and the Honda took a few dents too, but both of the Mercedes were unharmed!”

Mercedes are just built of better stuff!
