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.

Powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, codenamed M157, the 2014 S63 Coupe plants 577 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque to the ground via its ultra wide 255/40R-20 tires up front and 285/35R-20 units in the rear. The transmission being used is the Speedshift 7 Speed Automatic, bolted up to Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic system. The 4Matic system normally sends 2/3rds of the power to the rear wheels and allows this coupe to reach 60 miles an hour in a mere 3.9 seconds.

The S63 has all of the usual AMG goodies like lightweight wheels and braking system, a slew of aerodynamic enhancements, and  retened the Airmatic air suspension for a sportier setup. The angular quad exhaust tips can be seen underneath the racing style rear diffusor.

The interior is also a gorgeous place to be. With supple seats, available carbon-fiber trim, a sports steering wheel, and AMG decals and badges.

The 2015 S63 AMG coupe represents the current design language of the Mercedes-Benz brand immaculately. It truly looks stunning and will be beautiful for years to come.

 

News: S-Class Coupe Concept…and a Convertible?

S Class Coupe Profile

 

Arriving early next year, Mercedes-Benz is getting ready to launch its S-Class coupe. Based on the newly released W222 S-Class Sedan, the coupe has the trademark pillar-less windows that roll all the way down. This brings into life Mercedes’s sensual clarity motif that has been at the center of the car’s design and theme. The S-Class Coupe will also spawn a S-Class Cabriolet as well. Bet on the Cabriolet having a soft top roof, a-la the Bentley GT. Both of the S-Class 2 Door body styles will be available with twin turbo V8 or V12 engines.

Inside, the interior will be similar to the W222 S Class sedan, with some minor tweaks. There will be a three spoke steering wheel, 2+2 style seating, and the availability of the Designo catalog, allowing customers to further enhance their car’s uniqueness.

All in all, this looks to be a gorgeous coupe (and cabriolet) that will be sure to turn heads and ignite hearts.

 

Spied: S600 Pullman – Maybach Replacement

Spied during pre-production testing, the S600 Pullman will represent the most luxurious offering from Mercedes-Benz. Riding on a stretched W222 S-Class chassis, the S600 Pullman is designed to offer it’s occupants in the rear the utmost in luxury.

Sporting unique body work such as a more classy grille, wheels, and different sheet-metal in the rear quarters, the Pullman will ooze substance and style. The extended wheelbase is designed to offer the rear passengers roughly six more inches of space. This stretch will also enable the rear occupants to recline the lounge style rear seats for additional comfort.

Pricing is likely to be around $200,000 for the “basic” Pullman model, with prices rising to about $300,000. Will this model be more successful than the slow-selling Maybach? Only time will tell.
