2011 Mercedes-Benz CL Class revealed, packs new engines and options
The 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL Class has been officially revealed, boasting refreshed looks, new engines and a plethora of new options and systems.
The front fascia has received the most new features with this redesign, boasting three new air intakes and a chrome strip. Other such inserts are also displayed by the rest of the new CL. LED daytime running lights are also featured in the front, while the rear also boasts a minor redesign.
The biggest change in the 2011 CL Class is by far in terms of engines, more specifically a new 4.6-liter twin-turbo V8, which replaces the older 5.5-liter unit, in the CL550 4MATIC version. But while displacements has been reduced, customers will be thrilled to hear that it is now more powerful, 429 HP and 516 lb-ft, but also more economical in terms of fuel economy, by 10-15%, and in CO2 emissions, by 20%.
The CL550 will be able to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds. While such a feat is mighty impressive, the range-topping model remains the CL600. It uses its 5.5-liter V12, capable of 510 HP and 612 lb-ft of torque to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds.
A wide array of new features have been added to the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL Class, some already seeing service in the S or E Class models. These include Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Adaptive High Beam Assist or Night View Assist. The Command infotainment system is now equipped with a 7.2 GB hard drive, for storing all the info you need.
The 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class will be available in dealerships starting this fall, all around the world.
