  • We chatted earlier in the year about the 2007 E class.
    Just an update:
    We ordered in june and took delivery on Sept 30.

    Called M-B for break in instructions: no kick down shifts, no cruise control,vary speed, not over 4000 rpm; all this to break in the gears properly.

    Took off the next day for FL; 640 mile first day, same second day.

    The E-350 4-Matic wagon is all that it should be and more.
    We are very happy and after 4500 miles in 7 weeks I can say no problems and have only praise for all that is new in '07 especially the steering and brakes.

    Got 24 mpg calculated manually and with the onboard computer.
    Oddly I get 28mpg for the same trip to Daytona in our S-430 4-Matic sedan. Both weigh in at 4200 lbs.

    I see a GL320 CDI in January 07, well ok Edmunds told you that.

    I also see a ML550, R550 and GL550 for July 07' as 2008 models.

    The new C-Class will be shown in March and arrive here in August as a 2008 model of course.

    A CL65 AMG will be shown in Jan at the Detroit auto show.

    A S450 will arrive in July 07 as a 2008 model.

    Current events - The CL550 has arrived at dealers for a cool 100K and change. The CL600 arrives at the end of the year.

  • Actually had 2 surveys: one from the Gallup org and one from Mercedes.
  • I'm thrilled to see some info on the New Mercedes Benz S450. Is that pretty "solid" info that it will be in the US in July 2007 as an '08?
    All I see around now is the S 550.

    I'd say so, they can't hold the starting price for the S-Class at 87K forever. Look for the S450 to arrive around that time for about 8-10K less than the S550.

    Sales were up 20 percent last month vs. the previous year. The S,CL,GL,E, and M all contributed to this gain.

  • In Italy for 2 weeks and saw A Class, B Class and Viano everywhere. Viano used as limo transport, tho at the Salone del Gusto in Turin, they had a camper version set up outside !
    Glad to see MB doing better. Really loved our 02 C Class Sport (loaded) and sad that it had SOOOOO many problems we gave it up before it gave up.

    Another clear (rear) shot of the 08' C-Class from Autospies:

    Look like baby S550s with the AMG package to me, a good thing. There is also a strong link to the CL there too.

    In other news, the ML550 has been confirmed by various dealer contacts per MBWorld members as a 08' model to arrive in July 07'. It appears that a GL550 will be released in the spring.

    Recap: During 2007 and/or for the 2008 model year:

    S450, GL550, CL63, S63, C-Class, ML550, R550 and late in 2007 the SLK should get a facelift, SLK55 becomes SLK63 AMG.
