Advanced performance comes from a higher-output yet more compact 4.0L biturbo V8. With 463 hp, it's more powerful than its predecessor, matches its 516 lb-ft of peak torque, and outperforms it in both responsiveness and responsibility. Racing-derived technology ranges from its turbocharger layout to its low-friction NANOSLIDE® cylinder walls. And its high-pressure Direct Injection and rapid-multispark ignition can self-tune on the fly with millisecond speed and molecular precision.
In any season, on any road, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive adds to your confidence and control. Always engaged and optimizing torque to every wheel, 4MATIC integrates with ESP®, our standard Electronic Stability Program, for maximum effectiveness in corners and slippery conditions. It also incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and responds to ensure torque is sent to the wheels with the best grip, even if that's only one wheel.
For a balanced, comfortable ride, the AIRMATIC® semi-active suspension employs electronically controlled air springs that adjust to changing driving conditions. Reengineered components offer quicker response with lighter system weight. AIRMATIC's automatic 4-wheel level control helps compensate for additional cargo or passengers. It also lowers the ride height at higher speeds for improved aerodynamics, stability and efficiency.
A fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
A new, bespoke grille design captures the eye even before the Mercedes-Maybach's power, grace and thoughtfulness can captivate its driver and passengers. Two sets of twelve fine vertical chrome vanes, each gently chamfered as it nears the upper frame of the grille, are bisected by a wider, tapering central chrome rib. A subtly etched nameplate is inset near the top center, itself crowned by the hood-mounted Star to express the name "Mercedes-Maybach" and the values the pairing represents.
With its elegantly lengthened body led by a grand new grille design, a Mercedes-Maybach exudes majesty, presence and grace. It's genuinely grand in both proportion and detail, from the intricacy of its chrome-ringed front apron and multi-element LED headlamps, to the sweep of its extended rear quarters and "Stardust" effect taillamps. And yet it retains the lithe muscle of the acclaimed S-Class, with taut body lines, impossibly tight tolerances, and a confident stance.
Offering both front- and rear-seat passengers sweeping skyward views, this fully functional glass sunroof features a front panel that can either tilt up for ventilation or slide over the rear panel for an open-air feeling. Dual interior power shades with controls allow the driver and each rear passenger to adjust the amount of sunlight entering the cabin.
A Mercedes-Maybach hallmark is making first-of-its-kind technology feel instantly like second nature. Indulgences quickly become must-haves in a cabin where your experience benefits directly from the deep experience of the people who create it.
The active multicontour front seats each feature adjustable lumbar supports, side bolsters and shoulder supports, for custom-tailored support. Active side bolsters can be set to automatically increase lateral support in cornering maneuvers, or even in the event of a potential accident. Six massage programs can soothe and rejuvenate the lower back, including two modes combining massage and heat for a "hot stone" effect worthy of a high-end spa.
A network of LEDs can create not just a soothing ambience in the cabin, but one you can alter to suit your mood, or even create one. Edge-lighting glows at three levels: beneath the "waveform" dash and door trim, behind the in-dash screens, and in the footwell. Along with 64 selectable colors, three cabin zones and adjustable brightness, numerous programs let you adapt the atmosphere with two colors at once or slowly changing colors that can also tie into the ENERGIZING Comfort Control feature.
A crisp, high-resolution screen uses a high pixel count, a fast refresh rate and automatic adjustment to ambient light to provide seamless display of entertainment, navigation, comfort and convenience features, and customizable vehicle settings. Linear-style menus are more intuitive and offer easy access via the touchpad controller on the console or the right-hand Touch Control Buttons on the steering wheel.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
At most driving speeds, radar technology helps sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area on either side of you, and alerts you by illuminating an icon in the appropriate side mirror. A warning tone sounds and a display appears in the instrument cluster if you activate a turn signal while a vehicle is detected. And if you begin to change lanes, advanced active technology can help guide the car back by selectively braking individual wheels.
An advanced system of 9 air bags offers 11-way occupant protection. Dual two-stage front air bags, a driver’s knee air bag, pelvic/thorax air bags for the driver and front passenger, rear side-impact air bags, and side curtain air bags for both seating rows are all standard.
Greater use of aluminum helps the body shell of the Mercedes-Maybach elevates its overall rigidity, occupant protection and acousting qualities while reducing weight. Along with high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel, advanced lightweight materials such as extruded and cast aluminum, diecast magnesium, metal-polymer hybrids and high-density foam in the roof pillars enhance body strength while cutting excess mass.
In darkness, Night View Assist PLUS projects invisible infrared beams and reads them with a special camera. Combined with thermal imaging, the system can display a clearer, supplemental real-time view of the road ahead in the digital instrument cluster, either full-time or automatically when danger is detected. Its advanced technology can also help identify and point out pedestrians and animals along a dark roadway, and help alert pedestrians with a flash of the LED headlamps in their direction.
