The Mercedes-Benz factory in Alabama is a marvel – A little bit of Germany right here in the southeast, assembling some of the best cars in the world! Here is a look behind the scenes with AL.com. There is a video, pictures and an interesting article.
They even made a joke:
“Mercedes’ Tuscaloosa County plant is having a major growth spurt right now, as it prepares to launch production of the C-Class sedan next year. But there won’t be any trips to the off-road test track for that model.
“You could go 70 percent downhill – once,” Grossmann joked. “Then it’s done.”
Here’s a great video of the new 2015 C-Class in motion. It is amazing how much it resembles the 2014 S-Class and how many features are carrying over! This may be European information so engines and options could vary for the US model.
Mercedes-Benz has just released official pictures and some details about the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The vehicle is expected to launch in the US in Fall of 2014. You can visit MBUSA.com or the MBUSA Facebook page for all of the details.
