Mercedes-Benz Presents an Impressive Lineup in the Future of Mobility

Launch may be sooner than anticipated With a commitment to launch 10 new electric vehicle models within the next decade, Mercedes-Benz wants to lead in the movement of futuristic vehicles for its eager patrons. Leaving industry competitors in the dust, Mercedes plans to harness that commitment with reality. Mercedes Santa Barbara is excited to be a part of the journey. The launch year of the electric autos may come quicker as Daimler Chairman Manfred Bischoff explained in a company shareholder meeting that they pose 2022 as the year Mercedes brings vehicles to market. This is about three years earlier than expected. Mercedes Santa Barbara leaps forward with the automaker that plans to spend $10 billion toward the effort to bring the future in electric vehicles to the industry, as reported by Elizabeth Behrmann, in a March 29, 2017, Bloomberg online article. Reasons behind innovative efforts, to be a cut above the rest Daimler-owned Mercedes understands the fallout of the diesel engine associated with Volkswagen Scandal in 2015 (Volkswagen installed diesel software in nearly 11 million vehicles to cheat nitrogen-oxide emissions tests).

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 Offers the Truck Experience in the Form of an SUV

Mercedes-Benz successfully transfers the driving experience of a truck into the new 2017 GLS450 SUV, combining the best of both worlds. Santa Barbara Auto Group is pleasantly surprised with the release of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS450. This behemoth cross-over SUV, offers three rows of seating with exceptional cabin space.

It’s difficult to create a three-row crossover that doesn’t appear to be a block on wheels. However, the engineers at Mercedes-Benz managed to blend new and old design concepts to create a cohesive compromise that makes the 2017 GLS450 the best-looking vehicle in its class. Santa Barbara Auto Group, an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer, is excited to offer customers the 2017 GLS450 because it’s the kind of vehicle that fills the gap between trucks and mid-size crossovers for undecided drivers. Comfort on the Road and in the Vehicle One of the most impressive attributes of the 2017 GLS450 is that it packs a shockingly smooth ride. Andrew Krok from the automotive web platform Road Show took the GLS450 for a test drive through the reputably calloused [...]
