In this review, Aaron looks at the 2021 AMG GLE 53, the turbocharged sport activity vehicle from Mercedes-Benz. It’s a coupe, but not a sedan, and it’s a crossover, but not square bodied. It’s somewhere in between. It sports beautiful drive dynamics, a very luxurious interior, lots of amenities, and a unique style. What is it, exactly? Well, it’s an AMG for starters. And that’s a pretty good start.
The newest from Mercedes-Benz, the AMG GLC 43 is a beautiful drive with a lot of technology behind the dash. It has a bi-turbo engine, lots of interior space, and more. Check it out.
In this review of the Mercedes-AMG GT53, I look at a beautiful and powerful sedan coupe from Germany. The GT53 has grace, style, beautiful sound (inside and out), and a lot to offer as a six-figure life choice. Got AMG?
Most of us know someone who’s “into cars.” Sometimes it’s classics, sometimes it’s muscle cars, and occasionally it’s trucks or mechanics. Rarely is it all cars, all the time, of any kind.

After attending a virtual presentation from Mercedes-Benz, Kristin and Aaron talk about what they learned as well as experiences taking various Mercedes vehicles off the pavement. It turns out, there’s a lot of unseen technology going on behind that Mercedes-Benz grille marker.
Mercedes-Benz hosted a virtual Concours-style show with several celebrity guests via the Zoom application. The platform allowed friends of Mercedes to showcase their cars and collections and benefit the American Red Cross during the coronavirus pandemic.
Celebrities included Jay Leno, walking through his impressive collection of Mercedes-Benz vehicles from a “factory hot rod” made in 1972 and an “ultimate luxury car” from the same year. Rap star Ludacris showed his AMG GT C Coupe which he says is his ultimate therapy.
Martha Stewart highlighted her GLS 550, which she called both “safe and practical” and says she drives daily. Rickie Fowler talked about speed and performance from his S 63 model while Madelaine Petsch talked about automatic parallel parking in Los Angeles thanks to her A220 sedan.
Hannah Elliot has a near-vintage 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL she loves for its personality and class. Cole Walliser showed off a beautiful 1991 two-door G-Wagon along with stories of a trip to Moab, Utah to go off-roading in it. Mike Kunz toured the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center to highlight his favorite, the 300 SL Gullwing from 1956.
Other classics included: a 1908 chain-drive Mercedes with a Benz Aero engine (nicknamed Rabbit-the-First), a 1956 300 SL Gullwing, a 1972 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3, 1972 Mercedes-Benz 600 Kompressor, a 1988 560 SL and a 1991 G 300 D.

Got 12 people to tote around? Need a big van you can pulls the seats out of and use as a warehouse? Like the idea of huge amounts of interior space and four-wheel drive? The Sprinter’s got it all.
In this review, Aaron shows off the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van in its passenger configuration. And he does it from the cool kids seats in the back.
Taking a quick look at the Mercedes-Benz Metris Weekender camper van that was on display at the Chicago Auto Show. Our friend Ashley from Mercedes talks us through why the van was created, its features, and says that this will be an option from Mercedes directly.
Working with an upfitter in Oregon and a few other suppliers around North America, Mercedes designed the Weekender to fit a lifestyle that would otherwise require a lot of time and effort to design in the aftermarket.
In this episode, we talk about the vehicles we wish Santa would bring us. This is our dream cars list of “if I won the lottery” picks. They include a McLaren, a Citroen, and are a great illustration of the difference in preference between the two of us. Plus Kristin sings carols during the break. Check it out!
