Maybach Dismissed. Next-Gen Mercedes-Benz S-Class to Fill Void

As the saying goes: With every door that closes another opens. That's the case with the sad news of Mercedes-Benz sending their elite Maybach brand to the chopping block in 2013. Of course, like any Mercedes-Benz enthusiast in the Chicago area, we sorry to see the 57 and 62 go. However, the blow is softened with the promise of the fifth-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class (i.e., S350 Blue TEC 4MATIC Sedan, S400 HYBRID Sedan, S550 Sedan, S600 Sedan, S63 AMG, and S65 AMG), including a new class-topping addition.

As one inside source from Mercedes-Benz frankly explains, Mercedes-Benz has come to the decision that it's wiser to discontinue the Maybach brand than move forward into an uncertain future with luxury cars that have not met sales quotas. Ending on a high note, however, the insider, reveals, "Plans are already in place to fill the void left by axing the Maybach 57 and 62 with the next-generation [Mercedes-Benz] S-Class, which will be offered in three wheelbase variations and six different body styles, including a top-of-the-range S600 Pullman."1

Drivers familiar with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class know the lineup currently consists of six different body styles. Details surrounding how the next-generation S-Class will supersede the models currently available, and how the S600 Pullman will differ from the current S600 Sedan, have yet to be released. That said, Mercedes-Benz of Chicago expects Mercedes-Benz to begin releasing details in the imminent future, as there is little over year remaining before Maybach is officially dismissed and Mercedes-Benz hails in the next-generation S-Class. So, be sure to stay tuned for updates on this and other Mercedes-Benz news, coming soon.
