2018 Mercedes Benz S550 Specs and Features – Base, S550e, and S550 4Matic
We’re already hearing that Mercedes Benz has no intention on introducing the same concept for the S550 as we’re hearing the 2018 models will be significantly improved. Premium interior and exterior features will be seen across all models, and we’re hearing that more will come with standard pricing instead of optional add-ons.
The 2018 Mercedes Benz S550 specs and features are expecting to get a facelift starting with the exterior. It’s believed new trim packages will be seen adding a sportier look and feel which is also expected to improve on the handling with lighter aluminum alloy. The lighter composite won’t have any effect on the five start safety rating we’ll likely see as many safety features will be found across all models. Crash avoidance, lane change assist, automatic braking, rear parking assist, side curtain airbags, and so much more will be seen.
Of course, all of the top tech and comfort features will be found on the interior of the 2018 S550 including high quality LED lighting, hand-crafted materials, wood grain interior, multizone LED ambient lighting, cabin fragrance system, dual zone climate, air quality purifier, HomeLink garage door opener, massage front seats, heated and ventilated seats, navigation, Bluetooth, hands-free calling, satellite radio, and much more.
The gas mileage across all models will be improved with the 2018 Mercedes Benz S550e which will be electric, and hybrid based. The S550e is expected to become the most popular model boasting a 3.0 liter biturbo V6 hybrid electric engine with nearly 330-hp. The engine of the S550 base will likely feature a 4.8 liter V8 with about 450-hp while the S550 4Matic will feature the same engine specs.
The gas mileage is expected to be slightly better with the lighter aluminum with full details below:
