It was almost hard to watch this video. The non-F1 pit stops seem comically slow!

Self Driving Mercedes-Benz? Almost!

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!

2016 Mercedes-Benz Model Names, Launch Dates

For Model Year 2016 lots of Mercedes-Benz models are getting new names. I have detailed this once before with a chart but I thought I would add a little more detail.

The sedans are the basis for the new names. The SUVs start with the GL pre-fix and add the associated sedan for size. The 4-Door coupes get the CL prefix and the 2-door roadsters get the SL prefix.

Obviously there are exceptions:

  • The G-wagon stays as-is. No one tells the G to make changes!
  • The SL cannot be the SLS so it stays as the SL-Class.
  • The GL and SLK will not change until next year when they get refreshed/redesigned.

Launch Schedule for new 2016s: (subject to change and change without notice)

  • C-Classes – August/September
  • E-Class – Available now
  • CLS-Class – July
  • S-Class – August (Mercedes-Maybach S600 available now)
  • SL-Class – July
  • SLK-Class – July
  • CLA-Class – October
  • GLA-Class – October
  • GLC-Class – November (pictures this month!)
  • GLE-Class – August/September
  • G-Class – October
  • GL-Class – August
  • AMG GTS – Available Now

As always, keep an eye on the MBUSA Future Models Section for the latest info!

Mercedes-Benz Hold Braking or Brake Hold Video

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!

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Sport Coupe at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Mercedes X6 competitor

Here it is! The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class stopped by for a training class this week. It was my first opportunity to see the new coupe version of the soon to be refreshed M-Class (now GLE-Class).

Mercedes GLE X6And here it is next to the standard version of the 2015 M-Class. Quite a difference! Note the 22″ wheels on this particular model. 21″ is standard!



I was not sure I was going to like this model as I DO NOT like similar SUV/Coupe models on the market now. However, now that I have seen it in person it is definitely growing on me! This car is bigger than the pictures make it seem. The rear end comes almost to my shoulder!

The interior is beautiful! It is a very sculpted and coupe-like cockpit with very elegant finishes. My trainer specifically pointed out that the matte finish wood reduces interior glare.

So, there you have it! have you been looking for a super powerful SUV? With coupe styling? And 22″ wheels? I’ll have it starting in August!
