The Mercedes-Benz W220 was a series of flagship sedans which constituted the Mercedes-Benz S-Class during the early-to-mid 2000's. The W220 (and similar W215 CL-Class coupés) started production in 2000. The W220 was a replacement for the earlier W140 S-Class after the 1999 model year. Compared to its predecessor, the W220 had somewhat smaller exterior dimensions but offered more interior space, particularly in the long wheelbase versions (although the boot is smaller than on its W140 predecessor). Production of the W220 totalled 485,000 units, slightly more than the production totals from the W140. Production ended in 2006 when the W220 and W215 were replaced by the W221 S-Class and the W216 CL-Class.
In many European countries, the diesel S320 CDI version became the most popular model, making it the first S-Class in which a diesel engine achieved broad appeal.
The W220 was not the first model to feature the company's new design theme for the next generation of Mercedes-Benz. This honor was given to the A-Class launched in 1997. Nevertheless, the W220 demonstrated a significantly different stylistic mindset, with both exterior lines and an interior design that express elegance and modernity. This can be seen as a response to criticism on its W140 predecessor, which was sometimes labelled as too big and too heavy.
Despite being smaller, the new car was roomier inside while the dashboard carried over the new styling details first seen in the Mk I A-Class the year before.
A facelifted version of the S-Class was introduced in 2003, offering a more aerodynamic front-end and redesigned tailights, though the exterior style remained largely analogous to the previous W220 models. Although the facelift only made minor changes to the exterior, it addressed several of the issues in the COMAND system and other interior features. Exterior updates included a more upright grille angle, new transparent housing for the headlamps (replacing the earlier opaque versions), and restyled lower air intakes on the front bumper.
The W220 was available with more engine options than the W126 or W140. The range started with a smaller 2.8L 197 hp (147 kW) V6 motor, although this model was not imported in all countries, notably in North America. Very popular was the 3.2L 224 hp (167 kW) V6, which was superseded by an enlarged 3.7L 245 hp (183 kW) V6 in the S350.
The S430 was powered by a 4.3L 279 hp (208 kW) V8 and the S500 was powered by a 5.0L 306 hp (228 kW) V8. The S430 also had a shortened wheelbase variant, which was the entry-level S-Class model offered in North America.
The S55 AMG ('01-'02) was outfitted with a 5.4L 354 hp (264 kW) V8 motor while the later versions ('03-'06) sported the same motor, but supercharged to a rated 493 hp (368 kW). The S600 ('01-'02) was outfitted with a 5.8L 362 hp (270 kW) V12 engine while the later versions ('03-'06) sported a twin-turbocharged (or Bi-turbo) 493 hp (368 kW) 5.5L V12. The justification for having two models with the same power (S600 and S55 AMG) is that the S55 AMG is sportier and more responsive, while the S600 is more luxurious with a smoother ride.
For one month in 2001, AMG produced an S63 AMG, which was sold in very limited numbers. The S63 was powered by a 6.3L 444 hp (331 kW) V12. An undisclosed number of the cars were sold exclusively through AMG in European and Asian markets.
The S65 AMG was introduced in 2005. Powered by a Bi-turbo 6.0L 612 hp (456 kW) V12 motor, the S65 was the most powerful S-Class, as well as the world's most powerful five-seat sedan with a staggering output of 604 hp (450 kW) and 738 ft·lbf (1,001 N·m) of torque.
Mercedes-Benz S-Guard Commercial
The official commercial for the armored version of the Mercedes-Benz
S-Class (German: S-Klasse) - The S-Guard. Quality made in Stuttgart,
Germany. It's a masterpiece of German engineering and probably the world's
safest sedan. In my opinion it's the most beautiful car in the world, too.
3 types of this car are offered:
-The "S 600 Guard": Powerd by a 6.0-V12-twin-turbo engine with 380kW (USA: 510hp; D: 512PS).
-The "S 450 CDI Guard" is powerd by a 4.5-V8-Dieselengine.
-The "S 600 Pullman Guard" is a streched version for heads of states. The
ceiling is heightened and the wheel base is 1,25 Meters (1.36 Yards) longer
compared to the normal S-Class.
It's available in different classes of resistance: B1 (caliber .22 LR) to
B7 (caliber .308 Winchester, full metal jacket)
The only disadvantage: It costs about 385 000€ (~525 000$)

2014 Tesla Model S vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550! - Head 2 Head Ep. 54
On this episode of Head 2 Head, the newest luxury heavyweight takes on the
reigning champ. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has ruled the luxury roost since
it created the segment decades ago. However, Elon Musk's revolutionary
Tesla Model S has single handedly disrupted the established luxury paradigm
and has recently outsold the mighty S-Class. What's most amazing is that
the Model S doesn't use a drop of gas. The S-Class does, but it rewrites
the luxury car playbook in other ways. So which $125K big lux whip is best?
Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Mercedes Future Truck 2025 autonomously driving truck premiere - Autogefühl
Here we are showing you some impressions of the Mercedes Future Truck 2025
concept, an autonomously driving truck which now had its premiere. Showing
you driving, exterior, interior as well as special situations the truck has
to react to.
More information from Mercedes:
Efficiency, safety and connectivity– the Future Truck 2025 revolutionises
the key elements of goods transport
Future Truck 2025 – Perfect synthesis of technology and design
Daimler Trucks strengthens technological leadership
Blind Spot Assist important step to accident-free driving
Daimler Trucks invests 1 bln. Euro per year into research and development
Dr Wolfgang Bernhard: "Our Future Truck 2025 provides compelling answers to
the challenges that our customers will be facing in the future. Our aim
therefore is to press forward with readying this technology for the market
and to bring it to series-production standard. I am convinced that this
will open up a whole new business perspective for Daimler Trucks."
The technology of tomorrow is already a reality at Daimler Trucks, in the
shape of the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025. The autonomously driving
truck was presented on the eve of the 65th International Motor Show for
commercial vehicles in Hanover, Germany. Its perfect synthesis of
technology and design means: The Future Truck 2025 is more than simply a
new truck; it is a key component of the transport system of the future. For
the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is sparing on resources, reduces
emissions of all types, ensures maximum road traffic safety and increases
the level of networking in road transport. Goods traffic in the future will
be safer, more efficient and more connected as a result. The Future Truck
2025 thus marks a revolution for road traffic and its infrastructure, the
truck driving profession and the haulage industry as a whole.
Work continues to take the Future Truck 2025 towards market maturity -
series production on the horizon
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is far more than a remote vision. The
truck should be on our roads in ten years' time. Many of its technological
elements are already available and ready to use.
"This truck provides compelling answers to the challenges that our
customers will be facing in the future. Our aim therefore is to press
forward with readying this technology for the market and to bring it to
series-production standard," said Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler Board
Member for Trucks and Buses, at the presentation of the innovative vehicle
in Hanover. "What we are showing here today is how the transport of goods
on our roads will be running more efficient, safer and more connected in
ten years' time. I am convinced that this will open up a whole new business
perspective for Daimler Trucks ," added Bernhard.
