The Best or Nothing At an Affordable Price

Mercedes-Benz has been producing top quality vehicles since the early 1900s. “The best or nothing” has been the motto for their vehicles and for good reason. Mercedes has created a brand which sets high expectations when it comes to luxury vehicles. With high quality interiors, powerful engines and sleek design, Mercedes is second to none when providing consumers with quality luxury vehicles. Aft

Entry Level German Luxury Sedans

With so many luxury sedans available on the market today, it can be difficult picking out the right one for you. Often times when people look for a luxury car they turn to the german automakers such as BMW, Mercedes and Audi. Depending on your age, income level and needs, certain cars will be right for you while others not so much. For a recent college grad or someone that just got their first ent

The Rise of The Turbochargers

For many years automakers have been creating cars with large naturally-aspirated engines. In the past, companies such as BMW and Mercedes have been using 6, 8, and even 10-cylinder engines in their larger vehicles to gain power and comfort. However, with the recent emphasis on more fuel efficient vehicles, companies have started testing turbochargers and even twin turbos in their vehicles to gain

The Art of Stopping

When most people think about autonomous autos, the center of focus is usually the steering not nraking. But being able to let the car coast along at a predetermined speed with hands off the wheel. But it can be argued that braking is more important in the autonomy formula. The technology for automatic braking has been around for 45 years now. The Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) was introduced by

Blitz-luxe: Rise of Germanic Luxury

In the 1980s automakers were aiming for volume after the formula for a marvelous mass produced autos was leaked. Unfortunately, the Corolla made it look too easy, while making millions (of cars or monies, which ever is more impressive) in the process. This led to quite a few emulators in the early 1980s. Even Luxury manufactures were trying to following suit. Start by making two clay cubes. Cut

2017 Mercedes E-Class Powertrains

Mercedes-Benz unveiled the 10th generation E-Class sedan at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. I think it is most visually savory standard car (by that I mean excluding anything with Gullwing and/or an AMG badge (and especially concept cars)) that Daimler AG has ever produced. However, beyond the aesthetic allure, the Mercedes E-Class is spectacular. As a rule of thumb, the bi

Daimler AG: Beauty Prevails in the Mercedes E-Class

Typically, I tend to sway towards Audi when it comes to the big three German automakers, but Mercedes has gained much ground. Daimler AG unveiled the new E-Class at the North American International Auto Show, and now I am a believer. In my opinion, they have attained the level of affection equivalent to that of a pet. Instead of being able to pet a pet in exchange for making sure it does not die,

Daimler May Team with Apple, Google on Self-Driving Vehicles

Could Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, collaborate someday with Apple and Google to create self-driving vehicles? “Many things are conceivable,” said Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche (see above photo) in an interview with Deutsche Unternehmerboerse. Granted, that is pretty noncommittal as far as answers go. Equally ambiguous is Zetsche’s remark, as reported by Reuters, that the company
