  • Wed, 20 Aug 2014 00:39:00 +0000: Mercedes-Benz G Class - The Car Connection
    The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, also known as the Geländewagen, is a large SUV that has both off-roading capability and a bit of military history. It has kept the same basic design and shape for more than two decades, but it’s become more luxurious over the years, too. There are two models currently available in the U.S.: the G550 and the...
  • Mon, 18 Aug 2014 14:35:00 +0000: 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class - The Car Connection
    The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL isn't a sports car, in the classic sense, but a very, very luxurious two-seat convertible that manages to blend nimble on-road behavior with a level of power suitable to a car costing $100,000 and up. To quote its engineers, the SL is "the S-Class of sporty cars," providing a unique mix of attributes that...
  • Mon, 18 Aug 2014 13:37:00 +0000: 2014 Mercedes-Benz C Class - The Car Connection
    The 2014 Mercedes C-Class once was the entry-level model in the German automaker's lineup. All that's changed for 2014, with the arrival of the compact CLA-Class sedan. Now in its final year on the market before its own revamp scheduled for the 2015 model year, the C-Class is offered in a huge range of flavors, from V-8-powered...
  • Fri, 15 Aug 2014 19:10:00 +0000: 2014 Mercedes-Benz G Class - The Car Connection
    Brash, boxy, and often blinged out, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class has come far--very far--from its roots as a utilitarian vehicle for soldiers. Dating back several decades, it's now so archaic and old-fashioned that it's hopelessly hip (though hardly hipster). The G stands for "Geländewagen," though in some quarters it might as...
  • Thu, 14 Aug 2014 21:57:00 +0000: 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL Class - The Car Connection
    Even the German automakers understand that the easiest way into the American hearts (and driveways) is to offer a way to haul the kids around – and the 2014 GL Class is Mercedes-Benz's most largest, most luxurious vehicle for the carpool lane. While the GL may wear a very large three-point star on its grille, it's actually...
  • Tue, 12 Aug 2014 21:00:00 +0000: 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class - The Car Connection
    If you're shopping for a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, you'll have to be a little more specific. The luxury-car benchmark comes in many different forms--sedan or wagon, coupe or convertible, or in thundering E63 AMG trim. The good news is that all of them live up to its decades-long heritage, while offering a bit more focused driving...
  • Mon, 11 Aug 2014 14:59:00 +0000: Mercedes-Benz GLK Class - The Car Connection
    The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is the most affordable way to get into a Mercedes crossover. Redesigned for 2013, and largely carried over into the current model year, it features an optional diesel engine that makes perfect sense in the segment. The GLK competes with the likes of the Audi Q5, the BMW X3, and the Range Rover Evoque. MORE: Read our...
  • Mon, 11 Aug 2014 14:52:00 +0000: Mercedes-Benz GL-Class - The Car Connection
    The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is the German automaker's American-made alternative to trucks like the Escalade and Range Rover. It's a sport-utility vehicle in the full-size class, and it has three rows of seating. One of two SUVs built at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Alabama, the GL-Class is priced from the high $50,000 range above and beyond $100,000...
  • Mon, 11 Aug 2014 14:45:00 +0000: Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class - The Car Connection
    If you’ve ever been a fan of the upright, classy styling and luxurious feel of Mercedes SUVs—like the GL-Class, M-Class, and the G-Class—but wanted something a little more subtle and more agile in the city than the GLK, the GLA is exactly that. The GLA-Class borrows the front-wheel-drive vehicle architecture underpinning the new...
  • Mon, 11 Aug 2014 14:21:00 +0000: Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class - The Car Connection
    The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class--including the base CLA 250 sedan and the sporty CLA45 AMG -- are the German automaker's newest and smallest offerings in its U.S. lineup, save for the exceedingly rare B-Class Electric Drive. The CLA sedans are the most price-conscious Mercedes for sale in America, with a base sticker in their first year of just under...
