Mercedes Benz announced the official MSRP for the 2014MY S-Class in the American market, where the luxury sedan is available in S550, S550 4MATIC, and S63 AMG guises. The minimum you are going to have to pay for the privilege of driving a 2014 Mercedes S-Class in America is $92,900, plus a $925 destination/delivery charge.
You do get a lot of car for your money though. Even the S550 base model, if you can call it basic, comes with a nice body, a powerful engine, and a lavishly equipped cabin that features ionized air purification via the AIR BALANCE PACKAGE, First Class rear-seat luxury, and a Burmester sound system, and technology features such as an intelligent suspension system called MAGIC BODY CONTROL.
Then we have the rearview camera, Panorama Sunroof, All-LED lighting (entire vehicle, inside/out), Keyless Start, and MAGIC VISION CONTROL. Not enough? No problemo. There are tons of other toys you can choose on the options list. In terms of safety alone the 2014 Mercedes S-Class comes with more than 30 standard and optional active and passive features.
The most important ones include the DISTRONIC PLUS which is now more of a semi-autonomous system, PRE-SAFE Brake and PRE-SAFE Plus, Cross Traffic Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Protection. You even get Attention Assist and Night View Assist Plus with human and animal detection.
The normal S550, as mentioned starts from $92,900. The four-wheel-drive S550 4MATIC will set you back $95,900, and the range-topping, 557 horsepower S63 AMG costs $139,500. These are fat price tags, but on the average, the 2014 Mercedes S-Class is 2.8% cheaper than the outgoing 2013MY.
