Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive system

The Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive system is a major advancement in both safety and luxury. Vehicles with the current iteration of Intelligent Drive are equipped with technology that only a few years ago would have been considered science fiction, such as 360-degree cameras and an internal program designed to override driving errors. The ultimate goal of Intelligent Drive is to offer production vehicles capable of driving themselves–a goal well within the sights of Mercedes-Benz, as test cars have already proved successful. Here are some of the features being offered on models right now, just one step away from the ultimate goal of a completely safe, autonomous vehicle. Read the rest of this entry »

Mercedes-Maybach S600 Interior

The Maybach brand has long been synonymous with premium luxury. So when Mercedes-Benz resurrected the name for the 2016 model year with the introduction of the Mercedes-Maybach S600, the automotive world took notice. Unsurprisingly, the S600 is relentlessly powerful behind the strength of a 6.0-liter biturbo V-12 engine.
