The 2011 Mercedes Benz SL-Class is a hardtop luxury roadster that comes standard with a 382 hp producing 5.5-liter V8 engine and 7-speed automatic transmission. The RWD SL550 gets an EPA estimated 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. For those who crave performance the SL63 and SL65 are both very attractive options. The SL63 AMG comes equipped with a 6.3-liter V8 engine that produces 518 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque while the SL65 AMG boasts a 6.0-liter V12 that produces 604 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. Both models are RWD and while the S65 AMG comes with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The SL63 AMG has an AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7-speed sport transmission. Options include distronic adaptive cruise control, panorama roof, multi-contour ventilated seats, sport steering wheel, and tinted head/tail lamps. Safety features are comprised of active body control, pop-up roll bar, anti-lock braking system, brake assist, multi-link suspension, and 7-way airbag protection. All SL-Class models are covered by the Mercedes-Benz New Vehicle Warranty that covers all defects in material or workmanship for 2 years/50,000 miles.
The SL-Class is a show-stopper in design and performance. Interior luxury is standard, with leather upholstery and wood trim, while the V8 engine can cover 0-60 mph in just over 5 seconds -- in the base SL550. The AMG-tuned cars have more horsepower and performance, but they all share an attention to detail and a power retractable hard top.
For 2011, Mercedes-Benz dropped the SL600 for the U.S. market, leaving three models: SL550, SL63 AMG and SL65 AMG. They've added the limited-edition SL550 Night Edition with matte black paint and exclusive interior to the lineup. The design refresh brings CLS-Class-style headlights and LED taillights, while under the hood the SL-Class now gets better fuel economy and a new steering system that requires less effort from the driver in high-performance cornering. All models also receive an advanced tire pressure monitoring system and HD Radio with Sirius Traffic. One new color is offered for 2011, Quartz Blue.
The rear-wheel-drive, 2-seater SL550 roadster has a 5.5-liter V8 engine that makes 382 hp and achieves a surprising 22 mpg while cruising on the highway, thanks to its driver-adaptive electronic 7-speed transmission. The Optimum Gear program selects the best gear for maximum acceleration or engine braking, while the Comfort setting starts the car in second gear -- or a reverse second gear -- and keeps the rpms low in slippery conditions.
