A few of the latest news items:

1 Jan 1970 - Mercedes SLK MY08 engine changes ??

The MY08 SLK200 Kompressor and SLK350 are getting new ID numbers (171.445 and 171.458) , so we believe that means the engines or gearboxes are being tweaked.

1 Jan 1970 - Mercedes CL500 4-Matic on its way ??

We've heard that theres going to be a CL500 4Matic coming soon - unless Mercedes change their mind. The internal model number is 216.386

Thats all we know, maybee it will never make it to the market - it certainly won't make it to the UK as the other 4-Matic vehicles (except the ML/GL/R) never have done before.

1 Jan 1970 - New Mercedes GLK model range details

Theres a new Mercedes GLK coming - it is based on the new C class (W204).

It looks like it will be available in 2 wheel drive, and 4 wheel drive, with 280/350 petrol and 320CDI engines.

It looks like there will be 5 models initially.

  1. GLK280 -  petrol, 2 wheel drive
  2. GLK350 - petrol, 2 wheel drive
  3. GLK280 - petrol, 4 wheel drive
  4. GLK350 - petrol, 4 wheel drive
  5. GLK320 CDI - diesel, 4 wheel drive

1 Jan 1970 - New Mercedes 280CDI and 320CDI engines

It looks like Mercedes will make some changes to the 280 diesel and 320 diesel power trains - we don't know whether these are engine or gearbox changes, but the internal model numbers for those models in the W164 ML, X164 (GL), W204 new C class will be changing.
