     I have been working on Gwagens for my whole 18 year career as a mechanic with an independent Mercedes repair and restoration shop. I know these trucks well enough to know which one I wanted. This is it. In my view, the 463.241 is the purest (yet civilized) most radical stock off-road machine, period. Built like a tank, by hand with top materials. There is a big difference in my experience between the American Market G's and these previous. The Europa trucks have always felt to have a little more power and the steering has always seemed to offer better feedback. The interior feels roomier without a bulky center console and door panels. The transfer case shift is manual which leaves no doubt that you're engaged without having to rely on an often faulty electrical motor. There are no switches or computers in the doors to get soaked with rain. There are no c-class climate control buttons to break off and get lost. This being an early 2000, the instrument cluster is similar to an early 210 chassis which has only one central LCD display that rarely goes bad or loses pixels. The steering wheel is similar to those from late 140 chassis without buttons that get sticky and gross. Under seat compartments and an accessible battery by the cargo door rounds it all out. I have had a great three years enjoying the G experience on and off road but now I need a pickup because it can't fit enough bags of cement and lumber for my recent projects.

Maybach officially discontinues all models for 2013

Tue, 14 Aug 2012 11:01:00 EST

The word "Maybach" has joined the long list of synonyms for the word "kaput." Mercedes-Benz released the price list for the 2013 models of its super-luxury sedans, with the price column simply stating "Discontinued" for each one of them.
The 2012 models, should there be any left for 11th-hour buyers, maintain the increased MSRPs that Daimler slapped on them late last year after it was known the brand would be terminated next year. But you might still be able to wrangle that $100,000 rebate if you ask nicely, or in Russian, or have Rick Ross ask for you.
It shouldn't be too long before we see the ultimate version of the next generation S-Class, the S600 Pullman, that will replace Maybach. Intriguingly, it's said the Pullman will be offered with every S-Class engine, even the four-cylinder diesel.

Mercedes S-Class Magic Body Control ad is clucking awesome

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 19:58:00 EST

This is a new ad from Mercedes-Benz. At no point does it show an automobile. Instead, it stars animals, but not the sort you might normally see in car commercial. This ad is all about chickens. It is bizarre, to say the least, with Diana Ross and the Supremes belting it out in the background, but it all kind of comes together when you realize just what Mercedes is hawking (yeah, pun intended).
It's for the manufacturer's Magic Body Control, found on the new S-Class. The system basically analyzes the road and prepares the suspension accordingly, leading to a ride that is, in the words of our own Chris Paukert "nothing short of spooky." You can read about it in our full review of the 2014 S550. Take a look below for the 53-second spot.

Mercedes has already booked 30k orders for new S-Class

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 19:15:00 EST

When Toyota snags 30,000 Corolla orders over a three-month span, it's entirely possible we're in the midst of a global economic collapse and that the end is nigh. That's because the scale for Toyota is so very large. Mercedes-Benz, on the other hand, operates on a much smaller scale, particularly when we talk about its higher-end models, like the S-Class.
In 2012, Mercedes sold 65,000 of its flagship sedans in Germany and the EU. That's 178 units per day, for 365 days. Based on that, you can imagine the excitement at Stuttgart when it accepted 30,000 orders for the new S-Class in just three months. That's an average of 333 per day on a continent with a notoriously shaky economy. Now, admittedly, this enthusiasm could wane as the refitted S-Class becomes more common and Mercedes achieves market saturation in Europe's many chauffeur and livery services, but Mercedes isn't choosing to look at it that way.
"The new S-Class has already jumped back into the lead in terms of new vehicle registrations in Germany and its neighboring European countries," Mercedes-Benz head of sales and marketing, Ola Kaellenius, said in a statement last week.
