The 2017 Chicago Auto Show

2018 MB AMG GTC Pair

Well, it’s another year, and another Chicago Auto Show has come and gone, bringing with it a number of exciting developments from German automotive stalwart Mercedes-Benz. From the 50th AMG® anniversary to the stunning debut of several innovative new models, Mercedes-Benz made an incredibly strong showing this year, and we here at Mercedes-Benz of El Dorado Hills have all the latest scoops and reveals from this major event.

The Debut of the 2018 AMG® GT

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of AMG®, Mercedes-Benz unveiled something truly special—the 2018 AMG® GT and AMG® GT C, which are convertible iterations of the classic AMG® GT S and GT R roadsters. Mercedes-Benz has taken the thrill and power that made the line famous and combined it with a stylish convertible body, so you can feel the wind in your hair like never before. With a Handcrafted AMG® 4.0L V8 Biturbo engine and a stylish fabric roof, this sporty beauty offers an open experience that brings you closer to the road and the world.

The Mercedes-Benz Mountain

One of the most thrilling exhibits to appear at this year’s show was this wild indoor test track. In order to demonstrate the stability and wheel-locking differentials of the Mercedes-Benz G 550, the “Mercedes-Benz Mountain” up and down a series of steep slopes, with inclines of up to 42 degrees! Grades like that would give a mountain goat pause, but the Mercedes-Benz G 550 was able to tackle them with aplomb, showing precision engineering is about more than high-speed handling—it’s about taking on any terrain in your path!
