Merc bombards market with new models


ZIMBABWE is definitely headed for good times as the volume of traffic on the country’s roads continues to increase as Government steps up efforts to rehabilitate major roads around the country.
And in line with these developments, Mercedes Benz has bombarded the local market with new models that are being driven up and down the country’s roads.
Producing a more advanced luxury sedan each year is a daunting task for any vehicle manufacturer. Luxury vehicles often come with larger price tags, which means greater expectations.
Failure is never an option, and if even the slightest mistake is made, it could end up being detrimental to both the bottom line and more importantly the corporate image of the vehicle producer.
One company that seems to always excel in not only meeting, but surpassing the expectations of their customers is Mercedes-Benz, and their all-new 2014 E-Class is a perfect example.
The all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class near Chicago, IL models have undergone quite a few changes that solidify them as must-see cars for 2014. Offering the trifecta of luxury excellence, the 2014 E-Class now offers more performance, refinement, and technology.
At first glance of the interior, many would think the 2014 E-Class is very similar to the previous year’s model, but under further inspection it’s clear that it has become more refined. For example, and new look gauge cluster and choices of three different wood grain trims are now offered at no additional cost.
The new Mercedes-Benz next generation safety features are also among some of the most cutting edge safety advances to date for an automobile.
New updates and integrations like a driver drowsiness monitoring system, steering assist, and rear-collision monitoring system all make the new E-Class a safer vehicle to drive than ever.
As far as variety when it comes to the E-Class, multiple trim levels not only offer different features and amenities, they also provide a large selection of available engine choices.
Depending on buyer preference, six different available trims can provide whatever mix of performance and fuel economy you wish. Some of the engine choices consist of diesel, hybrid, and turbo performance.
Not only is did Mercedes-Benz improve on the E Class, they have also released a menacing CLS 2014 AMG model which is one to reckon with.
The logic is pretty simple. Adding more power is useless unless sufficient traction is available to get it to the ground. That’s AMG’s thinking at least, and for 2014 the North American-bound CLS63 AMG four-door ‘coupe’ gets the same all-wheel-drive system and power enhancements as those added to the previously announced 2014 E63 AMG four-door sedan.
Little surprise, as the CLS, after all, is little more than a rebodied E-Class; under the surface, the cars are virtually identical.
For the 2014 model year, the 5,5-liter twin-turbo V-8 rises in output from 518 horsepower to 550 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque, which was also the 2013 rating with the optional performance package. But on top of that, there now is an ‘S’ version, which increases power output to 575 horsepower and torque to 590 lb-ft by raising boost pressure from 13,0 to 14.5 psi. Maximum torque is available in a broad range from 1750 rpm to 5250 rpm (up to ‘just’ 5000 rpm on the S). As with the E63 AMG, the CLS63 AMG is governed at 155 mph (or 186 mph on the S), which still keeps a respectful distance to the car’s full capabilities. The regular model goes from zero to 62 mph in 3,7 seconds, and the S shaves that a hair to 3,6 seconds. The Patriot/
