2018 S-Class: More Technology, More Luxury

Every model, from the standard S450 to the Mercedes-Maybach S650 will see a host of revisions and improvements.

The facelifted S-Class will come with revised engines, plusher interiors with updated technology, new designs for the front and rear bumpers, as well as updated headlights and tail lights.

The W222 Facelift will offer a three-spoke sports steering wheel, three new upholstery offerings, and an updated infotainment system with a single-piece glass display. These are great additions that should make the vehicle much more linear on the inside. The Three Spoke steering wheel on the AMG models is truly a nice touch.

The namenculture is revised as well. The new S450 gets a new 3.0-liter V6 that produces 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, while the S560 offers up a new 4.0-liter V8 with a stout 463 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The new V8 gets cylinder deactivation and a hot “V” layout that enables the turbo to be placed in the middle of the cylinder banks.

The AMG models have some refreshed mechanicals as well. The S65 AMG is continued with the 6.0-liter V12 that is currently offered, producing 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. The S63 replaces last year’s 5.5-liter V8 with the more powerful 4.0-liter V8. The S63’s 4.0-liter produces 603 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all wheels through a new nine-speed automatic and a revised Mercedes’ 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system. The S63 and S65 also receive upgraded brakes, new wheel designs, a new exhaust system, adaptive sport seats, and performance apps for the infotainment system.

Love the new W222 S-Class Mercedes-Benz? So do we! MB USA has recently revealed their 2014 S-Class configurator. The new configurator allows you to choose the options and colors that you’ve always wanted to see in the new W222 S-Class. The base price is $92,900, but after we loaded ours up, it came to a grand total of $139,120. We chose to go with the Diamond White metallic over the black extended Nappa leather.

There are a slew of drool worthy options available on the new W222 S-Class and we feel it seems kind of a bargain at almost $140,000. The new S-Class will initially be offered in the S550 Trim, with other versions, like the AMG to follow. Visit MBUSA.com to assemble your S-Class today.
