Actually had 2 surveys: one from the Gallup org and one from Mercedes.

I'm thrilled to see some info on the New Mercedes Benz S450. Is that pretty "solid" info that it will be in the US in July 2007 as an '08?
All I see around now is the S 550.

I'd say so, they can't hold the starting price for the S-Class at 87K forever. Look for the S450 to arrive around that time for about 8-10K less than the S550.

Sales were up 20 percent last month vs. the previous year. The S,CL,GL,E, and M all contributed to this gain.

In Italy for 2 weeks and saw A Class, B Class and Viano everywhere. Viano used as limo transport, tho at the Salone del Gusto in Turin, they had a camper version set up outside !
Glad to see MB doing better. Really loved our 02 C Class Sport (loaded) and sad that it had SOOOOO many problems we gave it up before it gave up.

Another clear (rear) shot of the 08' C-Class from Autospies:
Look like baby S550s with the AMG package to me, a good thing. There is also a strong link to the CL there too.
In other news, the ML550 has been confirmed by various dealer contacts per MBWorld members as a 08' model to arrive in July 07'. It appears that a GL550 will be released in the spring.
Recap: During 2007 and/or for the 2008 model year:
S450, GL550, CL63, S63, C-Class, ML550, R550 and late in 2007 the SLK should get a facelift, SLK55 becomes SLK63 AMG.

Mercedes sold 248,080 vehicles in 2006 including 146 Maybachs. Surprisingly with all the new models compared to Dec 2005 sales were down 10 percent on a month vs. month basic for Dec.

Y'know, except for the S and GL -- which seem to have driven most of the increase -- looking at these numbers, I find little for MB to crow about. Most models are down compared to last year, and many by significant percentages.

Yeah their Dec numbers should have been much better than last year considering all the new models this year compared to last. The SL and E particularly should have done better this year considering they have a facelift. Still though, 30K S-Classes at 90K a pop on average, someone is printing money. If only the R could sell like the ML and GL then they would really have seen some big growth. I thought they'd at least get to 260K units in 2006, but nope.
