Four Shades of Grey – Palladium vs. Selenite vs. Mountain vs. Steel

For 2016, Selenite Grey has been made available on many models and Palladium Silver has been discontinued. I was trying to describe this color as the New Palladium but the more I looked at it, the less Palladium it looked. So, I pulled together all of my greys and here is what I came up with!

From Left to Right: Palladium Silver S550, Selenite Grey E350, Mountain Grey CLA250 and Steel Grey C300


I think Palladium is lighter and has more gold than Selenite.

Steel gray

If you compare the Steel C300 (closest) to the Mountain Grey CLA250, the Steel looks very blue and the Mountain looks a touch brown.

I think this is the best light/angle I captured to show the different colors.

I hope there is a color or paint expert out there that can tell me how to explain these! Until then it will remain light grey, medium grey and dark grey.

Mercedes-AMG GT S Reviews and Video

Does the automotive press like the new Mercedes-AMG GT S? Ummm, yeah.

Motor Trend: Mercedes-AMG GT S vs. Porsche 911 Turbo S vs. Nissan GT-R Comparison

“It’s one of the best-handling cars I’ve ever driven. Certainly the best in the big, powerful bruiser category. Completely hooked up, without understeer. The car comes right into a corner, but the tail doesn’t come around. It’s just beautifully balanced all the time.”

“This thing is basically just the greatest car there is,” Lieberman said. “Too hyperbolic? Well, it’s certainly not as well-mannered as the Turbo S. And that’s a good thing. Philosophically speaking, a little bit of attitude, a bit of misbehaving, that’s kind of what we all prefer, right?”

“If you want thrills and excitement and entertainment, the GT S is your car. It does everything the 911 does but with just enough hints of danger to get your blood pumping. “It’ll kill momentum, jink, stick, and rocket away from bends like a Le Mans racer,” Martinez said. “If the GT S is indicative of a new era in AMG history, all others had better watch out.”

“Are you still grinning like an idiot three days later? If yes, well, special. Is the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S a special car? I’ll save you the suspense. Double hell yes it is!”

“But you don’t buy the AMG GT S for the numbers. You buy it because it eats up a road like nobody’s business.”

“I’ll end this one by stating the obvious. I’m totally smitten with the Mercedes-AMG GT S. It’s special. It checks all the boxes. It’s beautiful, it’s luxurious, and it runs down canyon roads like an axe murder on a parkour course, devouring everything in its path.”

Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class – SUV and Coupe

new Mercedes X6

For 2016 Mercedes-Benz will have two versions of the mid-sized SUV. The GLE-Class SUV and Coupe. Pictured above is the current ML-Class and the GLE-coupe. Similar size, but very different styling.

2016 GLE-Class SUV

This is a mid-cycle refresh to the current M-Class. There are upgrades to the interior and exterior but it will be very recognizable as the traditional SUV. It will be available in many variants: GLE300d, GLE350, GLE400, GLE550e, GLE63 AMG

2016 GLE-Class Coupe

This is a whole new version of the mid-size SUV. This GLE had coupe-like lines, AMG styling and is meant to stand out. The GLE-Coupe will only be available as the GLE450 AMG Sport and the GLE63 AMG.

Does that help? There seems to be a lot of confusion about why we are turning our ML into a coupe! We aren’t…there are two!

Mercedes-Benz Active Parking Assist Video

I had a question about this system from a customer today so I thought I would share this excellent video with everyone. Based on the number of G-Wagens in their illustration this is a very nice neighborhood!

Have a Great Weekend!

I have gathered all of my Red, White and Blue to celebrate Independence Day!

Mercedes-Benz Metris Van – Passenger and Cargo

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!

The Metris – in cargo and passenger.

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.
