For Sales Consultant Kevin Sierra, the Mercedes-Benz AMG EQS Sedan is the pinnacle of luxury. This sleek model throws down the gauntlet for performance, boasting a heart-pounding 649 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. It rockets from 0 to 60 mph in a quick 3.4 seconds. “It’s got a lot of power. It’s really fast and has such a classy look to it,” says Sierra. This power comes courtesy of a sophisticated dual-motor electric drivetrain fed by a high-density battery for an estimated range of 277 miles. “The AMG EQS Sedan is quiet, functional and unexpectedly fast, and the 

AMG-specific grill, emblem on the front and matte black paint add some serious style points,” says Sierra. It also features rear-axle steering (aka four-wheel steering). “I’ve actually drag-raced this car and won!”


Name: Peyden Evans
Job Title: Product Specialist
Dream Car: Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Sedan

First-class travel gets a whole new meaning with the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Sedan. Product Specialist Peyden Evans deems himself a “passenger prince,” and this car is the pinnacle of automotive luxury with its meticulously crafted cabin. Exclusive Nappa leather graces every surface, while meticulously chosen wood trims and active ambient lighting set the mood. Rear passengers reign supreme in their own private retreat, cosseted by power-reclining heated and ventilated seats with massaging functions. Two 11.6-inch touch screens provide entertainment options, while the driver (or chauffeur) is treated to a state-of-the-art driving experience with the latest Mercedes-Benz technology. Evans admits, “Although it’s fun to drive, it’s even more fun to be a passenger in the back. You can relax, work, sip champagne… It’s the lap of luxury.”

Unparalleled luxury and power join forces to yield the Mercedes-Benz S 580.

The S 580 will even parallel park for you!

The Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe was just released, and I love the body style,” says Sales Consultant Juan Cancino. “I’m a coupe person, so this is definitely a dream ride.” This sleek set of wheels carves through corners with speed and elegance. Two handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engines, 577 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque accelerate the car to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds. “The active engine mounts make the handling and power superb.” Drivers of the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe can grip every corner with confidence thanks to standard AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive.

Possibly one of the most iconic cars to hit the road, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is in a league of its own. “The presence, the boldness of it, the height—it doesn’t get cooler than the G-Class,” says JT Johnson. Combining legendary off-road prowess with unexpected luxury, this vehicle defies definition. It boasts an iconic boxy shape, making it instantly recognizable from mountains to city streets. A powerful twin-turbo V8 engine propels the G-Class over any terrain, while permanent all-wheel drive and advanced drive modes ensure confidence on the road. Step inside, and you’ll discover a surprisingly refined cabin brimming with modern amenities, such as heated leather seats and a premium sound system. “My dream G-Class would have a sand exterior, black roof and a black interior with red stitching,” Johnson says.
