2011 mercedes-benz r-class Reviews and News

2011 Mercedes-Benz R-Class
2011 Mercedes-Benz R-Class
The Mercedes R class has a bit of an identity crisis. It can't decide if it's more of a minivan or a station wagon or a crossover vehicle. It has the overall look of a minivan, though it has regular doors in the rear, rather than the sliders that would be more common in a minivan. Still, Mercedes calls it a crossover. While not as roomy as a minivan, it can still carry 6 or 7 passengers all the while eschewing the standard stigma of what is a minivan. The R class rides on the same platform as the M and GL classes, but has a larger wheelbase than either of them.

The R class comes in two trim levels, the R350 bluetec and the R350. Both come with all-wheel drive and a 7 speed automatic transmission. They both carry 6 people, but can carry 7 with the applicable option. The R350 Bluetec is powered by a 210 Hp 3.0 Liter V-6 Turbo Diesel. The R350 is propelled by a 3.6 liter, 268 HP V-6. The R series can tow 5200 lbs.

Earlier this week, Daimler announced it’s investing more than $2 billion USD to increase production capacities of its Tuscaloosa, Alabama plant. That's not surprising, considering the Mercedes-Benz U.S. International (MBUSI) plant will build the next-generation C-Class for the North American market beginning in 2014.

The significance of the 2011 R350 is that it's the first major face-lift for the slow-selling R-class, and the vehicle looks undeniably better. The new styling was intended to make the R-class appear a bit less like a minivan, and that effort has succeeded. The R-class now better resembles its big, successful brother, the GL-class SUV. I've always liked the combination of utility, luxury, and prestige that the R-class provides, but the market didn't agree with me. And although the R350 has a very impressive, very efficient diesel powertrain, I'm not sure the market will respond, especially given the R350's high price. It seems that for those Americans who want to haul more than four or five people in a Mercedes, the GL is what they want. But if that big SUV leaves you cold, by all means, check out the R-class. There's a lot to love here -- just not the monthly payments.

Bucking the trend that affected the makers of lower-cost and generally more fuel-efficient vehicles, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW all posted year-over-year sales gains for the month of August. Mercedes-Benz and Audi had sales increases of 15 and 14 percent, respectively. BMW increased sales by 1.6 percent.

The Mercedes-Benz R-class was introduced in 2005 amid high expectations, but sales have been disappointing-particularly recently. In 2009 the Mercedes GL-class SUV outsold the R-class five-to-one, and the M-class outsold it by a factor of nine. Now coming up on the six-year mark, the R-class might be expected to undergo a full redesign, but instead the 2011 model is getting new sheetmetal only from the A-pillar forward, along with minor equipment revisions, and carryover powertrains.
