Mercedes might have given up on diesel engines in the United States but its plug-in hybrid lineup continues to grow as the company has released pricing information for the 2018 GLC 350e.

Car and Driver reports the model will go sale this summer and a listing on the company’s website reveals pricing will start at $49,990. That’s $7,940 more than the GLC 300 4MATIC but the crossover is eligible for a $4,460 federal tax credit which lowers the difference to $3,480.

In return, buyers will receive a nicely equipped crossover that features LED lighting units, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a power liftgate. The model also has privacy glass, a rearview camera, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Moving into the cabin, drivers will sit behind a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel and find themselves surrounding by natural grain brown ash wood trim. Other highlights include a 14-way power driver seat, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, and an infotainment system with a 7-inch display.

Power is provided by a plug-in hybrid powertrain that consists of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, and a lithium-ion battery pack. This setup enables the crossover to produce a combined output of 320 hp (238 kW) and 413 lb-ft (559 Nm) of torque. In terms of performance, the all-wheel drive model can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 6.2 seconds.

Mercedes hasn’t released fuel economy data but the crossover’s battery can be recharged in less than 2.5 hours. The model also has a number of eco-friendly features including a haptic accelerator pedal which pulses twice in ECO mode to let drivers know they can “save fuel without reducing performance by letting up on the gas.” The GLC also has a radar-based regenerative braking system which automatically adjusts itself to recuperate as much energy as possible.

Mercedes Recalls Include AMG GT, G550 4×4², Maybach S600 & More 7

Posted by Carscoops Staff in AMG, mercedes, Mercedes AMG, Mercedes AMG GT, Mercedes G-Class, Mercedes GLC, Mercedes GLE, Mercedes GLS, Mercedes S-Class, Mercedes-Maybach, NHTSA, Recalls on 01 7th, 2018


Mercedes-Benz has issued four recall campaigns in the United States all at once, covering a wide array of vehicles for issues ranging from door locks to headlights.

The largest among them covers an estimated 8,700 vehicles from the GLE, GLS, and S-Class ranges – including AMG models and even the Maybach S600 – all 2017 and 2018 models.

They’re being recalled for a problem with the latches on their left-rear passenger doors, which may not lock properly. Each will have to be inspected by a local technician and potentially have those lock mechanisms replaced.

The next largest recall affects 8,134 examples of the GLC, which simply need to have their headlights checked and possibly readjusted. Another 432 examples of the G550 (including the 4×4²) whose power brakes may not be working properly. Finally ten examples of the AMG GT equipped with the optional AMG Performance Seats will need to either have software for their passenger airbags updated or the passenger seat cushion replaced.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, all four campaigns will kick off this month, though the parts for the G-Class and AMG GT are expected to take another month or two to arrive before they can be fitted.

Mercedes Compact Models To Share Renault’s New Small Petrol Engine 18

Daimler and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance co-developed a new 1.3-liter petrol engine that recently debuted on the Scenic and Grand Scenic.

However, the powertrain will eventually be expanded to various cars within the Alliance, and it will also be used on several front-wheel drive models coming from Mercedes-Benz, reports AutoNews.

A Daimler spokesperson confirmed that the next generation A-Class is among the vehicles that will put the 1.3-liter lump to use, and different variations of the unit will be offered in the B-Class, GLA, and GLC as well, but no details surrounding the outputs or where it will be put together have been released so far.

However, the small petrol unit is offered on the French minivans in a choice of three power levels, starting with the TCe 115PS (113hp) and TCe 140PS (138hp), and ending with the TCe 160PS (158hp). The first one comes exclusively with a manual gearbox, whereas the mid-range can be had with an EDC dual-clutch automatic as well, and the latter is offered solely with an automatic transmission, so we won’t be surprised if Merc’s models will follow a similar route.

Renault-Nissan and Daimler’s collaboration started 7 years ago, and so far it has seen the French brand’s 1.5-liter dCi diesel engines being used in the entry-level A-Class, B-Class, and GLA. Moreover, the 1.6-liter petrol unit developed by Renault is also used in the C-Class, and the Renault Kangoo has been rebadged by Mercedes and sold as the controversial Citan.
