2019 Mercedes Maybach. The Pullman is proof that they really are better than the rest of us. And to Mercedes, it serves as evidence that the brand, having tripped over its own champagne magnum with its previous Maybach experiment, can deliver a hyperluxury bolide to compete with Rolls-Royce. Also, the Pullman name was just sitting around collecting dust. When it looked like it can’t get any better, we can always be surprised even more when Mercedes is in question. Although it’s reserved for the ones with deeper pocket, it’s no harm to take a peek at 2019 Mercedes Maybach S560 and S650.
Although this is the ultimate luxury sedan, comfort and luxury details aren’t the only things we’re interested. No, when it comes to the engine compartment, it can’t get any better. The luxurious Maybach S600 put onto the rack, stretched to more than 21 feet long, stuffed with enough extravagant trimmings to choke a Trump, and proffered for the pleasure of the one-hundredth of one-percenters. Notable features include a pair of emperor-class executive rear seats; jump seats for aides-de-camp, bodyguards, or mere hangers-on; an audio system tuned specifically to the ear of the buyer; and Magic Chauffeur Control, a glass partition that can be lowered or made opaque at the press of a button.
Of course, it’s not just the power of the engine. Although 2019 Mercedes Maybach fills every need a buyer can possibly have, there is someone who has higher expectations and needs. And those people will certainly satisfy their senses in the interior of new S560/S650. Where to even start? Well, for starters, with ENERGIZING Comfort feature, the buyer can choose among a number of configurations. There are specially combined to tailor to any moods, desires, and needs. Of course, everything is done with highest quality materials, and every touch is soft. The occupants will feel relaxed with reclining seats and power calf rests in the rear, exclusive wood, and leather details.
But even this model comes with several optional features. There is executive rear seat package plus which comes with two folding tables. It can be enriched with optional refrigerator box in the rear as well as Silver handcrafted champagne flutes by Robbe and Berking. There is ambient lighting in 64 colors, and panorama sunroof comes as an optional feature. Aside from standard rear seat entertainment, there is also optional split view entertainment system for front seats.
On the 2019 Mercedes Maybach outside, designers paid attention to every detail, but more important is that new model comes with LED intelligent light system with new ultra wide beam feature. Rear lights come with vertical LED lighting while we can also find two dual large exhaust pipes. High level of safety is another a must-have in this model. With a bundle of plenty active and passive safety features, it is one of the safest vehicles someone can buy. The active driver assistance systems come as distance assist, steering assist, blind spot assist, speed limit assist, and lane keeping assist with emergency braking feature.
We all know that current Maybach S500 comes with 4.7-liter twin turbo V8 with 449 horsepower. The 2019 Mercedes Maybach S600’s 6.0-liter twin turbo V12 comes with 523 horsepower. Although these digits are pretty much respectable, Mercedes doesn’t intend to stop. The new models will come with new generation engines. The S560 will smaller volume engine the S500. It’s 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 but it produces more output, 463 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. On S650 is a different story. Not different in the volume and displacement of the engine, those are the same, but Mercedes managed to squeeze additional 98 horsepower. That’s right, the S650 will have an output of 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque.
The 2019 Mercedes Maybach S560/S650 will arrive later in 2018. When the price is concerned, the current S550 comes with starting price of $166.200, while the S600 starts at $191.300. We can only assume that price of the new S560 will pass the $170.000 mark, while the S650 will be close to $200.000. Although this seems much, have in mind that these models are the ultimate luxury sedans. Competition: Bentley Mulsanne, Rolls-Royce Phantom.
