Setting the standard in luxury transportation
by Craig Cole

It is rare when a luxury automaker redesigns its flagship sedan. These occasions are equivalent to the birth of a royal heir or the launching of a battleship; they’re a big deal.

FAST FACTS
Engine: The S550 is powered by a 4.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that puts out 449 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

Transmission: A seven-speed automatic gearbox is standard.

Fuel Economy: 16 MPG city, 26 MPG highway, 19 MPG combined.

Price: Starts at $95,325, or $122,895 as tested (both with delivery).

Range-topping cars typically bring the latest features to market and push the boundaries of automotive technology. And that’s exactly what the people at Mercedes-Benz have done with their brand-new S-Class. But is this car as traditional and joyless as the Swabians that created it? Let’s hope not!
