Mercedes-Benz will release more premium edition variants of its latest models that are closely based on the same concept of the SLC RedArt and SL design Edition. The car in question is the new GLE Coupe OrangeArt Edition which offers a model-specific upgrade.
In a bid to attract more consumers, the German marque will be offering its pseudo SUV-coupe with the premium edition treatment. The new variant is offered in a couple of black shades as well as in white, gray or silver hues. But what is eye-catching is that the Coupe can be aesthetically known for its orange accents of the rim flange and front apron.
Various eye-catchers in Orange lend the coupe a sporty look, and with its striking contrast, they give the vehicle a stylish vibe. The OrangeArt Edition Coupe also flaunts 21-inch alloy wheels directly from AMG's portfolio and will be offered as standard with a black LED ring meant for the headlights. The exterior's upgrades are only up to here, sorry to burst your bubble.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz goes zesty with its GLE Coupe OrangeArt Edition
Do the vehicle’s aesthetic standards appeal to you more than its performance? If so, TopCar’s version of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350d not only looks mean but it also comes with a meaner price tag --- It’s almost like buying an “AMG-fied” GLE63 S Coupe. That being the case, there definitely is a lot more you can do to make it run just as fast or to simply improve its overall performance. Which would you rather have?
To compare it with the AMG 63 S, the GLE 350d dressed up in TopCar’s Inferno body kit is priced at around $113,000 while the set of 22-inch Lumma Design Wheels can be bought separately at more or less 6,900 USD. On the other hand, you can get the AMG-modified Mercedes-Benz for 110,650 USD. In other words, this makes the diesel engined Inferno close to the price range of an AMG.
If you’re leaning towards fuel economy, then an AMG might not be for you. You may have to bring down your expectations. A standard GLE 350d Coupe boasts an average of 6.9 liters per 100 kilometers combined fuel consumption. Besides, it has enough power to hit 62 mph from a standstill in just seven seconds.Read the entire article Get awestruck with the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350d INFERNO by TopCar
Brabus’ team of designers and engineers rose to the challenge of transforming this new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe into an SUV coupe that takes the top spot when it comes to performance. A turbocharged V8 engine sits under the hood of the new BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe.
With a displacement of 6 liters, the engine has been rated at 625 kW / 850 HP (838 bhp) and 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft) of torque. What results is a powerful engine that can launch a car to 100 km/h or 62 mph in a span of just 3.8 seconds from a standstill.
This is also thanks to the SUV’s lightweight design, as the vehicle weighs slightly more than 2,350 kilograms (5,180 pounds). The electronic limiter on the engine, however, keeps the car at just 320 km per hour or 200 mph for its top speed.Read the entire article BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe based on Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 AMG Coupe
Mercedes-Benz U.S. International is celebrating a major growth milestone -- the launch of the production of the first customer-ready all-new GLE Coupe. At the ceremony for the launch of the new model in the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Markus Schäfer told guests that this year, the company will renew nearly all of its SUV lineup and has boosted capacities in the U.S.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG was not the only surprise from the 2015 Detroit Auto Show as Daimler also took the wraps off the new 2016 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe 4Matic. Seen as the perfect rival for the BMW X6 M, the GLE 63 Coupe 4Matic uses a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 557 hp (410 kW) at 5750 rpm and 700 Nm of torque, between 1750 and 5500 rpm.
The vehicle is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. If you want a more powerful version, Mercedes-AMG offers the GLE 63 S Coupe 4Matic, which uses the same engine boosted to 585 hp (430 kW) at 5500 rpm and 760 Nm of torque, between 1750 and 5250 rpm.
As a result, the vehicle needs just 4.2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), while top speed is 250 km/h or 155 mph. Both models have a fuel consumption of 11.9 l/100 km, while CO2 emissions are 279 g/km.

Mercedes-Benz plans to make 2015 its fifth straight year of record annual sales on demand for new models such as the coupe version of the Mercedes-Benz eyes 5th straight year of record sales in 2015. "I expect a very good year for Mercedes-Benz" in 2015, Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Mercedes parent company Daimler, said Wednesday in Las Vegas, where he unveiled the F015 self-driving concept car.
"With the new products that we launched and bring to the markets this year, we expect to significantly exceed general car market growth," he said. Mercedes will present the GLE Coupe, which will vie with BMW's X6 for sporty SUV buyers, at the Detroit auto show next week.
The car is part of Mercedes's strategy to surpass BMW and Audi to retake the top spot in the upscale car segment by the end of the decade.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz eyes 5th straight year of record sales in 2015 with GLE Coupe
After one teaser, Mercedes-Benz officially unveiled the all-new GLE 450 AMG, its first AMG sports model powered by a V6 biturbo engine. According to the official press release, the GLE 450 AMG uses a 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine that produces 367 hp (270 kW) and 520 Nm of torque from 1400 rpm.
Engine is bolted as standard to the 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission and power is delivered through the 4Matic permanent all-wheel drive. The Dynamic Select variable dynamic control system offers five transmission modes: Individual, Comfort, Slippery, Sport as well as Sport+ and the driver is able to select one using a rotary control located on the centre console.
In addition, the various displays found on the Comand screen and in the cockpit change according to the selected transmission mode. If on the standard model the torque distribution is 50:50 between the front and rear axles, on the GLE 450 AMG the drive is split in a ration of 40:60.Read the entire article Official: 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG arrives with V6 biturbo engine and 367 hp
This is it folks, Mercedes-Benz’ answer to the BMW X6 a.k.a. the all-new GLE Coupe. Clearly inspired by its German rival, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe promises to feel like a true sports car and despite its similarity with an SUV with its raised seating position and all-around view, the passengers are led to believe that they are in a sports rather than off-road mode.
Mercedes-Benz will offer to engines when it will launch the GLE Coupe and we expect more by the end of 2015. For diesel fans, the GLE 350 d 4Matic diesel model arrives with 258 hp (190 kW) and 620 Nm of torque from 1600 rpm. The GLE 400 4Matic petrol model gets the 2.0-liter V6 biturbo engine developing 333 hp (245 kW) and 480 Nm of torque from 1400 rpm.
Both models get standard 10-spoke light-alloy wheels wrapped in 275/50 R 20 tyres, while the 21-inch or 22-inch wheels are available as an option. We have to underline the fact that the 22-inch wheels are only available ion conjuction with the Airmatic ADS Plus air suspension.Read the entire article 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is the new BMW X6 rival
Mercedes-Benz officially confirmed its new product line by the name of “AMG Sport”, which will fill the gap between the AMG Sports package for Mercedes-Benz vehicles and the high-performance AMG models. According to Mercedes-Benz, the new Sport models will appeal to an even broader-ranging clientele worldwide and will help the sport division to achieve new sales record.
Mercedes-AMG will unveil its first two AMG Sport models at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. We know that one model will be the C450 AMG Sport, a new model that will fill the gap between the C400 4Matic and the high-performance C63 AMG.
The C450 AMG Sport will use a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine, mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission that will deliver around 367 hp. The model will be offered as standard with all-wheel-drive, as well as a tuned chassis and brake parts taken from the high-performance AMG models.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz officially announces AMG Sport models, GLE Coupe teased
Although it was just a rumor it appears that Mercedes-Benz will indeed take on the BMW X6. As expected, the car will be based on the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and the new car will use the same running gear found on its brother. An AMG version is also planned and it will use the same engine found on the ML63 AMG.
Asked why Mercedes-Benz decided to build such as car, an executive said that due to the ample demand but also due to the fact that it involves reduced engineering work and costs. The new crossover will be sold in the United States, China and Europe. Still, Mercedes-Benz is currently chasing BMW into a sub-segment, which is not very big or glamorous.
Still, the BMW X6 is quite popular and this is what Mercedes-Benz wants. Despite its success, other carmakers failed to impress with their X6-styled crossovers, such as Acura with its ZDX or the Honda Crosstour. We shall see if the new Mercedes-Benz MLC will be different when it will hit the dealerships by 2014.Read the entire article 2014 Mercedes-Benz MLC confirmed
The fifth model that Mercedes-Benz will be building at its Alabama plant by 2015 is shaped like a crossover with a coupe back end that’s very similar to the BMW X6, according to an image and picked up by Jalopnik. CEO Dieter Zetsche has not divulged about what this new model would be but it is clear that it will be one of 10 extra models that will be released over the next four years.
This makes it apparent that the model that Mercedes is referring to won’t be the existing GLK. The latest reports say that the MLC will be built on the same platform as the new ML-Class.
Its lines are inspired by the CLS. The back doesn’t have a lot of room, implying that Mercedes is focused on the design instead of its practicality and off-road prowess. Mercedes has plans to introduce an AMG version that uses the most advanced technologies, enabling it to produce more than 544hp.Read the entire article 2015 Mercedes-Benz MLC teased
Plug-in hybrid vehicles are increasingly the mobility of choice for many people. For short drives around the city or urban areas, plug-in hybrid can be switched to all-electric mode for a zero-emission driving experience. However, current plug-in hybrids can only offer up to 50 km (31 miles) of all-electric range.
Mercedes-Benz is hoping to break the status quo by not just surpassing the 50-km barrier, but also offering up to 100 km (62 miles) in pure electric range. Quite a number of plug-in hybrids still offer 30 km of electric range, while there is an increasing number of models that are engineered to reach 50 km.
As divulged by Ola Kallenius, head of Daimler group research and Mercedes-Benz cars development, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLE PHEV will be the first plug-in hybrid to offer a 100-km range, as per WLTP cycle.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz claims upcoming GLE PHEV will have a 100-km all-electric range
Alpina is releasing a new limited edition model that is essentially a more powerful and more appealing re-creation of the BMW 4 Series. This is the new BMW Alpina B4 S Bi-Turbo Edition 99, which would be sold either as a convertible and coupe versions, with deliveries set next year. As its name indicates, only 99 examples of the Edition 99 will be built.
This new BMW Alpina B4 S Biturbo Edition 99 is a limited edition model of the Alpina B4 S, which was derived from the BMW 4 Series.

The Convertible model of the Edition, meanwhile, is configured as a rear-wheel drive.

Compared to its predecessor (2011-2019 model years), the next-gen GLE is more elegant, more intelligent, and more technological. Likewise it is more spacious, more aerodynamic and more suited to off-road adventures.
Mercedes-Benz will unveil the next-gen GLE to the global public at the Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris 2018, which will be held from October 4 to 14, 2018).

It seems like we are reporting about BMW cars every week. And this week, we are going to talk about the BMW 8 Series, because first, we have been waiting for its arrival, and second, it comes with a handful of technology, as well as two engine options. Therefore, there is no excuse that we don’t talk about this.
Overall, the production 8 Series looks like a toned down version of last year’s concept. The production model now has a long, low nose with a narrow take on BMW’s kidney grille. The hood then continues to a double bubble roof that flows back to a gently sloping tail. Large trapezoidal tail pipes dominate the view from the rear end.
LED headlights come as a standard feature, but these can be upgraded to laser lights. To cut down on weight, buyers can then spec a carbon fiber reinforced plastic, and there’s an available Carbon Package that uses CFRP for parts like the mirror caps, intakes, rear spoiler and diffuser.Read the entire article BMW 8 Series is finally here, with 523 horsepower from its biturbo V8
About a year ago, Swedish professional skier, Jon Olsson shared his bespoke Rolls-Royce Wraith, which he named “George”. The monster has an insane 810 horsepower under its hood, and now, he is selling it for a not so budget-friendly price.
The very first time we learnt about this was at The Netherland’s Auto Leitner, with its selling price of around $324,000 (275,000 euros). When looking at the car, it seems that nothing has changed as it remains to have the exterior upgrades and its heavily tuned engine.
Some of the Wraith’s exterior upgrades include Olsson’s signature camouflage wrap, lowered suspension, and the plethora of LED lights. It sits on a set of 24 inch Forgiato matte black wheels fitted with Pirelli Pzero Nero 285/30 ZR24 tires. It also has a jet powered, carbon fiber surfboard that weighs 18 kilograms (40 pounds). We doubt that the surfboard is included in the package though.Read the entire article Jon Olsson is selling his custom Rolls Royce Wraith
