Mercedes-Benz has new police-ready packages for X-Class, Sprinter, E-Class, GLC

Luckily for German law enforcement officers, Mercedes-Benz is presenting them with more ways to catch criminals as it launches the X-Class truck for cops at the General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference 2018 in Frankfurt. Aside from the truck, the automaker will also reveal other models that are part of its range of Polizei-ready models, including some really efficient options.

Here is the thing, MercedesBenz does not offer many details about the changes for its police focused vehicles. But we are assuming that if these tweaks are similar to those like law enforcement models in the United States, these will likely include radio systems, on-board computers for officers, and a lot of storage space to keep all of the cops’ equipment.

For the X-Class in its police spec, the model is based on an all wheel drive to make it perform even better off road. The Polizei livery, however, makes the truck look really cool.

Mercedes-Benz refreshes its GLC SUV after nearly four years

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show is serving as a witness to the unveiling of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Facelift. It has already been nearly four years since Mercedes-Benz launched the GLC in autumn 2015, and now the German premium carmaker is refreshing one of its beloved SUV with some revisions on its looks and better technological features.

On the exterior, the updated Mercedes-Benz GLC features chrome elements running from the front to the rear end, a heavily contoured chrome radiator grille and a front fascia with three small rectangular sections. The grille is flanked by LED (light emitting diode) High-Performance headlights as standard, as redesigned to feature a smaller, more angular appearance. Optionally available are full-LED headlamps with MULTIBEAM technology. The front end also features daytime running lights with torch shape.

The rear section of the new Mercedes GLC is marked by some updates such as completely revised bumper and exhaust tips that now features sharp-edged trapezoidal outline. In addition, the rear end of the new GLC is fitted with redesigned full LED tail lamps that are now rectangular in shape.

China-exclusive 2019 Mercedes-Benz GCL L long-wheelbase finally introduced

The battle for supremacy in China among premium SUVs with long wheelbases will soon hot as Mercedes-Benz reveals the long-wheelbase version of the GLC. The new Mercedes-Benz GLC L will only be sold in the Chinese market and will compete against the long-wheelbase variant of the Audi Q5 crossover (Q5 L). Mercedes-Benz is expected to unveil the new GCL L to the public at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition in November 2018.

When compared, the new Mercedes-Benz GLC L basically looks like the regular wheelbase version – just like any extended model being sold in the Chinese market. However, the long wheelbase variant of the GCL does appear extended on the side because of its now stretched length. This is evident beyond the B-pillars of the new GLC L, where the roofline looks to have grown longer. This is also evident when looking at its rear doors, which now appear to be longer than those in the regular wheelbase version of the GLC SUV.

For its exact dimensions, the new Mercedes GCL L measures around 4.76 meters (187.6 inches) in overall length as well as 1.89 meters (74.7 inches) in overall width. Its wheelbase – the main focus of this version – has grown by around 100 mm (3.93 inches). An extended wheelbase typically results to larger space in the rear cabin, given rear passengers more room to operate, especially with their legs. Since many people in China tend to be chauffeured off than to drive, vehicles with long wheelbases are a hit in this part of the world. Nonetheless, Mercedes will offer both versions of the GLC – regular model and the L variant – in China.

Mercedes-Benz GLC F-CELL PHEV makes use of battery and fuel cell for operations

German premium carmaker Mercedes-Benz has created a new plug-in hybrid vehicle that combines the power of two technologies –electricity (battery) and fuel cell (hydrogen). In short distances, it relies on pure electricity. When there is a need to travel over long distance, this plug-in hybrid relies on the power of fuel cell. This is the new Mercedes-Benz GLC F-CELL PHEV.

Using the Mercedes GLC as the base, this technological showcase isn't a futuristic vehicle, but is a real SUV that will be delivered to customers at the end of October 2018. It was originally envisioned as a plug-in hybrid, but now represents an important step by the German carmaker in the development of fuel cell technology.

As engineered, the Mercedes GLC F-CELL PHEV features four operating modes: Battery, Charge, F-Cell and Hybrid. All operating modes are supported by an energy recovery function that allows energy to be recovered during braking or coasting, then store it in the lithium-ion battery.

We know that in June this year, the third generation Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will be available in dealerships in Europe. Finally, the automaker has shared real details on what we can expect from the new commercial van.

Aside from that, interested buyers in Germany can already place their orders on one of these for a base price of 19,990 euros before tax ($24,530 at current exchange rates). Deliveries for this electrified eSprinter are set to start in 2019.

Though the current version of the Sprinter is available in a rear wheel drive and an all wheel drive option, customers will now be offered in a front wheel drive version of the van.

The Chinese market will soon be getting the exclusive China-only model, Mercedes-Benz GLC-L, for a premium of 15,000 yuan ($2,300) more than the regular model.

The difference is actually quite noticeable as this model has a longer wheelbase. It had been increased by 10 cm (3.93 inches). As you can see from the images from CarNewsChina and Autohome, the roofline seems to have grown starting from the B-pillar.

Since we are discussing a longer wheelbase, then we might as well talk about the vehicle’s dimensions. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-L is 4,765 mm (15.6 feet) long, 1,898 mm (6.2 feet) wide, and 1,648 mm (5.4 feet) high. Its wheelbase has grown to a total of 2,973 mm (9.7 feet).

What can we expect from Mercedes-Benz for this year and the next? It seems all matters have been laid out with luxury carmaker’s vehicle lineup for 2017 and 2018. As revealed by parent Daimler AG in its second-quarter interim report, a roadmap for the Mercedes’ product offensive includes interesting new vehicles up for release in 2018.

The road map included in Daimler’s second-quarter 2017 interim report details Mercedes’ product offensive starting 2017 through next year. Some of these products were already presented or are set to be introduced in the period January to September 2017 -- such the E-Class Coupe and the E-Class (March 2017), GLA facelift and AMG GT Roadster (April 2017), S-Class Facelift (July 2017) and the E-Class Cabriolet (September 2017). The remaining product to be introduced in the remaining months of 2017 is the Mercedes X-Class pickup truck, which is bound for release in November or December 2017, according to this product offensive roadmap.

Mercedes’ product offensive in 2018 will be headlined by the S-Class Coupe Facelift and the S-Class Cabriolet Facelift, both of which were recently unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Bound to arrive in the first months of 2018, the S-Class Coupe facelift and the S-Class Cabriolet facelift features -- more or less -- the same tweaks made on the 2018 S-Class Saloon facelift that was introduced in July 2017. These include new steering wheels and new OLED rear lamps.

Recently, Mercedes-Benz came out with the Project One, and that probably is the company's most powerful hypercar to date, giving out as much as 1,000 horsepower. But during Frankfurt, the German automaker introduced us to something more environmentally friendly. This includes models like the EQ A Concept, Vision EQ Fortwo, and the GLC F-Cell in its pre-production stage. The F-Cell is actually a fuel-cell powered luxury crossover that owners can plug in when charging the batteries.

Thanks to its unique powertrain, the GLC was made with a plug-in hybrid that works with a fuel cell stack instead of a combustion engine. All in all, the GLC F-Cell has a total output of 197 horsepower (147 kilowatts) and 258 pound feet (350 Newton-metres) of torque. In terms of range, this setup has a range of 272 miles (437 kilometers) in the New European Driving Cycle test.

The fuel cell portion comes with two carbon fiber tanks that carry as much as 9.7 pounds (4.4 kilograms) of hydrogen. One of the tanks is found under the rear seats, while the other is on the area where the driveshaft usually is.

A year after Mercedes-Benz unveiled the GLC Coupe Concept to the world at the Shanghai Auto Show in Spring 2015, the German premium carmaker has now come up with a production version that fuses the design language of a multi-functional SUV and the usual styling elements of a coupe.

Thanks to the clever use of various materials like aluminum and high- to ultra-high-strength steels, Mercedes was able to make the new GLC Coupe much lighter. The use of aluminum components allowed the carmaker to make the suspension a lot lighter as well as reduce unsprung masses, thereby contributing to the improvement of the ride comfort of the vehicle.

Customers may avail of the optional AIR BODY CONTROL multi-chamber air suspension, which comes with spring elements in light yet robust glass-fiber-reinforced plastic that make the system lighter than conventional air suspensions.

The first thing one notices about the heavy-duty Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis is its impressive size. At 95 inches tall and 20 feet in length, it simply towers over other lesser vehicles and its powerful presence alone dominates everything in sight.

Its imposing hulk correctly suggests the incredible power it possesses with a payload capacity of 6,400 lbs. and a towing capacity of almost 4 tons. Indeed, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis is a capable machine and can be depended on to handle even the toughest task.

Imagine what an expert customizer such as RENNtech can do to this already overpowered base model. According to Bernie Glaser, Vice President of Mercedes-Benz Vans in the USA, Mercedes-Benz’s collaboration with RENNtech to create the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Extreme resulted to a “super-strength, unlimited hard-working capability and an aggressive design.”

To respond to the growing demand for the new Mercedes-Benz GLC, the carmaker has contracted Valmet Automotive to produce more of the mid-range SUV starting 2017 at its manufacturing site in Uusikaupunki, Finland.

However, Mercedes-Benz will still use its Bremen facility in Germany as the main production site for the new GLC. In fact, the carmaker has been building the GLC in Bremen since July. Being the main production site for the GLC, the Bremen facility has been experiencing a high utilization rate.

To ease up some capacity at the Bremen plant, Mercedes is leveraging capacities offered by contract manufacturing, like that of Valmet Automotive. Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales, remarked that after the launch in Europe, the GLC will also be available in right-hand drive version starting December.

A new chapter was written today by Daimler as the German company unveiled its all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC a.k.a. the second generation of its mid-size SUV which was renamed from GLK to GLC. As expected, the new design is based on the GLC Concept which was unveiled earlier this year, while the front end follows the same design line as the smaller C-Class.

The vehicle features a three-dimensional radiator grille with a twin lover and centrally positioned brand star and stylish headlamps with LED High Performance lamps available as an option. Seen from the side, the GLC features a gently sloping dropping line and matte black cladding in the wings. The rear end gets redesigned taillights, muscular shoulders and a stylish roof spoiler.

As you can see, there is no rear antenna as all the antennae were integrated into the exterior mirrors and the roof spoiler. The new design helps the GLC achieve a Cd value of 0.31 (GLK 0.34). Meanwhile, the total weight has been cut by 176 pounds (80 kg). The interior was redesigned too and is inspired by the smaller C-Class.

Mercedes-Benz is set to show its Concept GLC Coupe at the Shanghai Auto Show, proving that the automaker isn’t backing down from a challenge. The Concept GLC Coupe is a near-production-standard compact model that uses the popular GLE Coupe formula. This dynamic show car features the coupe’s styling but with the sensual design premise of future SUV generations.

The combination is appealing in itself but it comes with strong details. It features a twin-blade radiator grille, powerdomes on the bonnet, and a four-pipe exhaust system that form an aesthetic contrast to the harmonious, nearly organic main body. Going off-road won’t be a problem with the Concept GLC Coupe as it comes with front and rear underbody protection, bigger ground clearance, 21-inch tires, and side running boards.

The GLE Coupe was warmly received as a highly practical SUV and impressive coupe so Mercedes-Benz is hoping to repeat its success with the Concept GLC Coupe. What’s noticeable is that the near-production-standard show car belongs to a more compact segment because it measures 4.73-metres long and has a 2.83-metre wheelbase.

Daimler announced that production of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van will be done in North America, as it tries to improve competitiveness by shifting output from its home turf Germany. Daimler ships Sprinter kits from Germany to Ladson, South Carolina, where the van will be assembled.

Volker Mornhinweg, head of the Mercedes' vans division, said in a statement, that the company can cater better to the growing demand for large vans in North America economically only if it builds them locally in the NAFTA region. He remarked that Daimler will decide on the exact site for the Sprinter’s production in the NAFTA region in the next few months.

Due to high import tariffs, Daimler has been building US-bound Sprinters in Duesseldorf and Ludwigsfelde, both in Germany. The vans are partially disassembled in Germany and then reassembled in Ladson – a time-consuming process.

Mercedes-Benz is introducing the latest model of its widely acclaimed large van – the new Sprinter. The Sprinter has been the face of innovations in its segment, setting new standards. The latest model aims to continue what has been started, as it features five new safety systems, engines that comply with future Euro VI emissions standard, and a very impressive appearance.

New Sprinter is so far the most efficient vehicle in its segment, as it only consumes 6.3 liters of fuel per 100 km. Euro VI drastically cuts the emission limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx), total hydrocarbons (THC), and particulate mass, and the new Sprinter is the first van in the world to comply with standard in all of its engine variants.

The van achieved this feat through the help of its BlueTEC engine and SCR technology that injects AdBlue into the exhaust gas. This technology has been tried and tested in over 100,000 commercial vehicles from Mercedes-Benz. This achievement was made without sacrificing the performance of the diesel engines -- four- and six-cylinder of which still provide outputs ranging from 70 kW (95 hp) to 140 kW (190 hp).

Mercedes-Benz intends to do well in the midsize-SUV segment by presenting a coupé version of the next-generation GLK. This is the rival to the boxy BMW X3 and Audi Q5 but since it’s not offered in a right-hand drive variant, it’s not available in the UK presently. It is known internally as the GLC and is slated to arrive in 2016.

Revisions for the second generation GLK include getting a body that’s sleeker and more stylish. This makes it more suitable for leading to a three-door coupe version.

The GLC will be one of the first models taken from a new, rear-wheel drive Mercedes platform, referred to as the MRA. The automaker has plans to offer multiple engines for the GLC, which is targeted at the 2014 Porsche Macan, its small SUV.

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter plans to dominate in the large van segment by making it offer several product improvements in spring 2012. It was subjected to the tough, practical testing that highlights the primary requirements of safety, economy and comfort. The Sprinter is the first van in the world to come with a seven-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.

It is equipped with a BlueEFFICIENCY package and a higher axle ratio that enhances fuel efficiency even further. The functionality of the standard-fit ESP has been enhanced. Just like all new parts of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, these new features are required to be able to endure extreme testing in the harsh conditions near the Arctic Circle. The safety standard of the Sprinter was raised by Mercedes-Benz to a higher level.

Since the start of 2012, the van has been fitted with a new range of ADAPTIVE ESP with added functions. The Brake Disk Wipe is one of its new features. When driving on a wet surface, this system creates a low level of brake pressure on a cyclical basis.

This image of Mercedes-Benz’s new junior SUV, known internally as the GLC, shows the carmaker’s love for controversial design. This model, which is scheduled to go on sale in 2013, will rival the new BMW X1. The GLC forms part of a broad range of new models that feature Mercedes’ flexible new MFA (modular front architecture) platform.

These models include the replacements for the current second-generation A-class and first-generation B-class, along with a new price-leading four-door coupé-like saloon that will be badged CLC. There may also be an upcoming estate dubbed the CLT. The GLC is styled at Mercedes’ main Sindelfingen studio in Germany, according to Autocar.

Instead of the rugged look of the larger GLK, the GLC has a highly contemporary design that makes use of ideas that were first seen on the BlueZero concept, but this time, they’re on a more defined two-box body.
