Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe Order Books Could Open September 2015
Reports recently surfaced indicating that the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will arrive in December next year. Now there are suggestions that the order books for the new C-Class Coupe could open up in September after the Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. While details about the new C-Class Coupe remain scarce, indications suggest that it will be wider and lower than the previous-gen C-Class Coupe. Beyond the removal of two doors, a revised roofline and the implementation of smaller seats, the coupe should remain mechanically identical to the C-Class sedan.

Is Mercedes-Benz Ditching Jersey For The ATL?
Mercedes-Benz has a home in the United States, and it's been in New Jersey since 1972. That is apparently set to change, however, as the German automaker has been on the hunt for a new local headquarters. There are reportedly a number of areas in the running, but it seems that Atlanta may be the ultimate winner of this luxury car location lottery...

Y esto es un futuro Mercedes GLC que se pasea por Tarragona sin puertas, en vídeo
Pasear por tierras de Tarragona nos puede deparar divertidas sorpresas, sobre todo si vagamos por los parajes que quedan próximos al centro que tiene Idiada por allí, en el Penedés. El caso es que los chicos de World Car Fans han pillado por allí a uno de los prototipos del futuro Mercedes GLC (recordemos, actual GLK) que anda de probaturas por nuestro país... sin puertas traseras. Según la rumorología popular, el nuevo GLC podría llegar al mercado durante el próximo verano, de manera que es tiempo de probar ahora los diferentes prototipos. Uno de ellos, pillado en plena faena, pasea por los alrededores de la Bisbal del Penedès, Santa Oliva y compañía con las puertas traseras desmontadas, mostrando únicamente refuerzos interiores y con lo que parecen ser dummies en los asientos traseros. Quizá la unidad en cuestión no saliera viva del cercano circuito de pruebas. Más allá de la anécdota, y tal y como se desprende de las imágenes, el futuro SUV recoge la tendencia del resto de la gama en materia de líneas curvas, y según vemos en la otra unidad grabada, la que exhibe el número 262, la parrilla frontal ira subdividida con dos lamas horizontales, flanqueada por faros LED, mientras que en la trasera el escape será doble. Por lo demás, se espera que el GLC herede algunas características de la actual Clase C, que escoltamos en Estados Unidos y pusimos a prueba en Francia, como algunos motores, aunque se especula con una versión AMG que dejaría en mantillas al propulsor de 333 CV que monta el C 400. Para el SUV está previsto, según cuentan, un V8 4.0 que entregue 476 CV con 650 Nm de par motor.

Mercedes-Benz CLA Pricing Continues to Spike Up
The Mercedes-Benz CLA is very popular because it boasts the luxury appeal of the three-pointed star brand while catering to a wider array of buyers. It is MB’s most affordable car in its existing lineup. The car immediately grabbed headlines when it was introduced because of the said factors, and customers were quick to notice it.

However, it should be mentioned that it also came with added fees like destination charges.

Mercedes-Benz USA considering moving south
Filed under: Mercedes-Benz Mercedes-Benz may be a German automaker first and foremost, but it's a global operation. Among its many offices around the world, the company employs some 800 staffers at its US headquarters in New Jersey. But that office could be moving down South in the near future. According to reports in the Atlanta Business Chronicle, the Wall Street Journal and Automotive News, Mercedes is looking into relocating its American head office from Montvale, NJ, where it's been based since 1972, to one of several locations under consideration below the Mason-Dixon line. Among the front-runners is Atlanta, where Porsche bases its North American operations. The presence of a trained workforce, necessary infrastructure, compliant officials and proximity to a major hub for international air traffic could make the Georgian metropolis an attractive proposition for Mercedes. Several locations in North Carolina are also said to be under consideration, as well. Either way, MBUSA's relocation to the South would put it closer to its assembly plant in Tuscaloosa, AL, and to the Port of Brunswick near Savannah from which it ships out those vehicles made in Alabama to points overseas. The relocation project is reportedly being handled by commercial real-estate firm JLL Inc, which is helping Toyota handle its relocation from southern California and Ohio to Texas. Sources don't expect, however, for New Jersey to let Mercedes go without a fight. The state's Grow NJ Assistance Program could offer MBUSA an attractive incentives package to stay in Montvale. The company previously planned in 1998 to relocate to Pearl River, NY, but ultimately ended up staying in Jersey.Mercedes-Benz USA considering moving south originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 17 Dec 2014 17:31:00 EST.
