2018 Mercedes CLS Release Date & Price – The Mercedes CLS was first introduced in 2004 as something that would slot between the E-Class and the S-Class. Return to a proper 4-door coupe for Mercedes, replacing the executive-sized E-Class coupe in 1995.
It has gone on to be one of the best-selling models for Mercedes, leading to some unique styles and versions, potentially most notably, the ‘Shooting Brake,’ although that model was never made accessible in the U.S. For 2018, Mercedes are dropping the Shooting Brake; weak sales numbers and budget cutbacks means that Mercedes-Benz is concentrating their efforts on the extra profitable lines.
2018 Mercedes CLS Release Date
Mercedes have remained pretty tight-lipped with any details concerning the new 2018 CLS, but sources say that we need to see the new model being unveiled in the early component of 2018, with full production and sales happening later that year.
2018 Mercedes CLS Price
We can find no reference to predicted prices for the new CLS, at best guess, we would say that there will be a small raise over latest prices, potentially 5% or so. Hope to see the prices starting all over $70,000.
2018 Mercedes CLS Changes
The new 2018 CLS will be built upon the same platform (MRA) as the S-Class, E-Class, and C-Class. This will be the third generation of this popular model, and the engineers at M-B have looked at where the present model has flaws, and they’ve tried to address these shortcomings.
From what we understand, the CLS will get the same engine line-up and technology that’s fitted in the new E-Class. This should really mean that under the hood will be a straight 6 engine as standard, out there as a gas or diesel option, and there will be multi-turbo layouts and options for people wanting a bit more performance, although the base model really should have close to 300 BHP, which in itself, isn’t that slowly.
2018 Mercedes CLS Redesign
Further solutions could see the power increased to somewhere near 600 BHP with the AMG versions. Speaking of AMG, the CLS will be available in three trim possibilities; Sport, AMG and AMG S.
No one has seen any designs, sketches, renderings or test mules of the new car, so details about the style are vague, but Merc has said that the rear will be significantly distinctive; new lights, boot-lid, and flanks will make the back-end noticeably different although even now retaining the CLS look.
2018 Mercedes CLS Equipment
As you’d count on from Mercedes, the new CLS will be packed with technology; even the base models really should have such features as rear-facing cameras, Bluetooth, USB and high-quality media systems.
