When Mercedes-Benz discontinued all motorsport activities in the mid-1960s, two engineers decided to pursue their passions on their own. Those engineers were Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, and their 300 SE engine would be the start of AMG®. In 1965, Manfred Schiek entered the German Touring Car Championship with the 300 SE engine developed by Aufrecht and Melcher—and won ten times! Then, in 1971, during the 24 Hours of Spa, the AMG® Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.8 won second place overall, quite a feat considering that it was a heavy luxury sedan against lighter and supposedly faster race cars.
Since then, AMG® has become synonymous with high-performance. Each AMG® engine is built by hand and designed for serious driving enthusiasts. The best way to experience what AMG® is really about is to test drive a Mercedes-Benz AMG® vehicle. To learn what makes a Mercedes-Benz AMG® like no other high-performance luxury car in the world, visit Mercedes-Benz of Boerne.

No matter where your adventures take you, Mercedes-Benz has built an SUV that’s better than the rest—but don’t just take our word for it. Among competitors like the Range Rover Evoque and Ford Escape, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL was named the 2013 Motor Trend SUV of the Year®. So, what exactly makes the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class the best luxury SUV on the market? Here are just a few of the features critics and drivers love the most:
Powertrains for Everyone
Whether you are traversing the urban jungle or the actual jungle, the Mercedes-Benz GL offers three engine choices to satisfy your driving needs and preferences. For starters, there’s the diesel-powered GL350, which offers a driving range of more than 600 miles. For driving conditions more punishing than the highway, the GL450 is equipped with a capable 362-horsepower V8. And of course, there’s the 429-horsepower GL550, which defies convention (and seemingly physics) in allowing a three-ton object to move with such speed.
Advanced Safety and Comfort Technologies
To make sure that you are equipped for whatever you encounter on the open road or the road-less-traveled, the award-winning 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL is equipped with a number of advanced features and technologies that are designed to improve safety and comfort. From COMAND®, the comprehensive multimedia and navigation system, to a 360-degree camera parking system and numerous all-terrain driving features, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL is the perfect companion for all of your driving adventures.
Surprising Fuel Economy
The GL is the largest passenger vehicle Mercedes-Benz makes, but you wouldn’t know it at the pump. Despite weighing 5,774 pounds, the GL350 and its potent yet thrifty BlueTEC® diesel engine returned the second-best observed fuel economy among SUVs tested by Motor Trend. And with a driving range of well over 600 miles, the GL350 can take you from the city to the mountains and back on a single tank of gas.
