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.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E63S AMG – THE HAMMER RETURNS

Mercedes Has a New 603 HP Beast!

AMG continues the tradition of offering a fully capable sports sedan with the E63 S AMG. The S variant gets to 60 MPH from 0 in a staggering 3.3 seconds. It’s also the first AMG model to offer the new nine-speed Speedshift MCT transmission. The E63 also has full air suspension at all four corners.

Additionally, the E63 S has AMG’s new 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive system. This drive-train has a race mode that decouples the front differential to allow the driver to really have fun close to the limit. It will re-couple if the system senses imminent danger. The torque split constantly changes based on condition and mode the car is in, while a limited-slip differential, mechanical in the E63 and electronic in the E63S, handles torque vectoring left to right.

Arriving in summer 2017, we are super excited to see this ultimate driver’s sedan in person. Tell us what you think!
