Extensive update for the AMG GT series.

The new Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO celebrated its world premiere. Numerous features of the high-performance sports car have been modified for even better racetrack performance: the optimised specific power, the new suspension, the aerodynamic fine-tuning resulting in even more downforce overall, lightweight-design bucket seats and lightweight-design wheels contribute to the enhanced driving dynamics and faster lap times on the racetrack. The revised Mercedes-AMG GT series was also presented to the world public for the first time. In addition to exterior updates, the two-door AMG GT Coupés and Roadsters will be fitted with the AMG DYNAMICS integrated driving dynamics control system for added agility, the new AMG Performance steering wheel, the centre console with innovative display buttons from the AMG GT 4-Door Coupé and a fully digital instrument display with exclusive AMG combined “Superport” display style.


“No other production model by Mercedes-AMG is presently as close to motor racing as the new AMG GT R PRO. A lot of experience from our current GT3 and GT4 motorsport activities entered into its development. The car gives you the feeling of being a racing driver. To create this feeling it has numerous lightweight design components, a suspension system with extensive adjustment options and even further improved aerodynamics,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Three public premieres.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE has a wealth of innovations. For example, the active suspension system E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL on a 48-volt basis is a world first. While the driving assistance systems take another step forward with Active Stop-and-Go Assist. The interior is even more spacious and comfortable, with a third seat row available on request. The infotainment system has larger screens, a full-colour head-up display with a resolution of 720 x 240 pixels and the MBUX Interior Assistant, which can recognise hand and arm movements and supports operating intentions. The exterior design not only exudes presence and power, but also sets a new standard for aerodynamics in the SUV segment.


The SUV trendsetter completely reconceived.

“Externally the GLE is larger and more athletic than ever before. In the interior, it has become more spacious, quiet and luxurious – and is now available with an optional third seat row to accommodate up to seven occupants,” says Dieter Exler, President & CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA. “However, the most impressive innovation is its revolutionary new suspension.” Also in the US show limelight for the first time was the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon. The four-door saloon car has a wheelbase of 2,729 millimetres and the proportions of a dynamic and at the same time compact saloon car with short overhangs at the front and rear. It is at the top of its segment with regard to rear headroom. In addition, the saloon model has the familiar A-Class virtues. These include modern, efficient engines, a high level of safety thanks to state-of-the-art driving assistance systems with S-Class functions, and the intuitively operated and learning MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience infotainment system.

MBUX: unrivalled experience.

“The A-Class is the most recent example of our claim to leadership in every segment and in every technology,” Dieter Exler explains. “The A-Class will also occupy a key position in our USA portfolio, and attract a new generation of customers.” The third US show premiere in Los Angeles was that of the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. As the first fully networked system solution, the third generation of the Sprinter embodies the development of the business unit from purely a vehicle manufacturer to a provider of end-to-end transport and mobility solutions. Hallmark AMG design, safety features at a very high level, maximum economy, customer and sector-oriented details and connectivity that takes infotainment systems and telematics applications into a new era.


“Equipped with MBUX and Mercedes PRO, the new Sprinter gives fleet operators and small companies a powerful tool for their fleet and vehicle management. We are proud that the Sprinter is being produced in the USA for the first time, in our new, ultra-modern production location in Charleston,” says Dieter Exler. Alongside the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, additional highlights at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show were provided by its high-performance variant from Affalterbach, the G 63, and three other Mercedes-AMG models, the E 53 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet and the CLS 53 4MATIC+.
