First Look: 2010 Mercedes-Benz S63, S65 AMG

Mercedes-Benz launched the S400 Hybrid and S600 versions of the 2010 S-Class at the New York Auto Show earlier this month, but we now have the official details about the “turned up to eleven” S63 and S65 AMG. No drastic power numbers have been tweaked — the S63’s 6.2-liter V-8 cranks out 525 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque, and the S65’s twin-turbo V-12 boasts 612 horsepower and 738 pound-feet. Additionally, the engines have been slightly tweaked to improve fuel economy, though we’re sure that Green-minded car buyers aren’t exactly looking for anything with an AMG badge.

First Look: 2010 Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC

They may not all be featured attractions at the New York Auto Show, but Mercedes-Benz has been splashing new models out nearly faster than we can keep track of them over the last few days. This morning’s S-Class orgy followed the E63 AMG announcement this weekend, and now the E250 BlueTEC has rolled out onto the Javits Center floor.

First Look: 2010 Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid, V-12 S600

We love it when automakers decide to unveil a new car, especially when they aren’t doing it at the auto show currently taking place. We may be knee-deep in New York materials, but Mercedes-Benz went and pulled the trigger on the new 2010 S-Class; more specifically, the S600 and S400 Hybrid.

Driven: 2009 BMW 330d

Just as we recently wrote about the new BMW 7-Series, the midlife fifth-generation 3-Series also makes its first impressions with its exterior and passenger cabin. What’s different in the case of the E90 3-Series four-door is that the all-new version introduced in 2005 has been an enthusiast favorite, whereas the 7-Series has received little else but sharp ridicule for its exterior design and the horrid earlier versions of the iDrive system, since going on sale in 2000.
