The Lifespan of Tires

By Admin | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, April 13th, 2017 at 4:02 PM

There are many different factors that play into the lifespan of a vehicle's tires. The design of the tires, and how long they are designed to last, will play a large part in it. Also, the driving habits of the vehicle's driver as well as the climate and the road conditions will also play a role in the tire's lifespan.
More aggressive drives as well as rougher road conditions with many potholes or windy roads will cause the tires to wear out faster. If the tires aren't properly cared for, such as getting regular rotations of the tires, then the tires will wear out faster, as well.
After ten years of having the tires, it is recommended that they most definitely be replaced – unless there are signs that show they need to be replaced sooner. It is important to have your tires inspected yearly after having them for five years to make sure that you are remaining as safe as possible.

The range-topping GT S model, meanwhile, ups the ante significantly. On this model, the turbo-V8 is rated a ridiculously robust 503 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.

Mercedes-Benz Celebrates its 50th Anniversary with AMG GT Concept Performance Hybridization

By Admin | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, March 13th, 2017 at 4:47 PM

The Geneva International Motor Show gave proof that the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT family is getting a four-door fastback variant to continue the legacy of the SLS AMG and AMG Hypercar, and it promises to be a monster of a sports car.

An EQ Power+ performance hybrid, AMG GT will showcase a handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine shelling out up to 805 horsepower, as well as an energetic, lightweight, long-range electric motor with three selectable operating modes to let you cruise on pure electric, engine only, or with optimal hybrid combination. You'll even be able to recoup battery power while driving thanks to brake recuperation tech, or via AMG GT's V8 if battery charge drops below certain threshold. The GT concept plans to have the aerodynamism chops to complement, with a Panamericana grille, slim headlamps, side air gills, moving center radiator shutters and a deeply drawn hood design, flanked by a raked windscreen, that extends to the wheel arches. But perhaps most eye-popping of all, the vehicle boasts ascent from 0-60 mph in up to three seconds. The fact that it'll be a road commander is serious understatement.

But Mercedes-Benz isn't sacrificing amenities for under-hood panache. Everyday utility persists in the form of AMG GT's large tailgate, spacious luggage compartment, and an interior that bespeaks the comfort requisite to a sport design.

What can this mean for the future of changing Mercedes-Benz drive configurations? Only time will tell. While we await this dynamo, our Cardenas Metroplex showroom offers a diverse ljneup of top-notch road warriors just revving for test drives. Stop by from Brownsville, San Juan, Mercedes, Los Fresnos or Edcouch and experience one for yourself today!

Selectable Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Individual and Slippery modes make it easy to personalize the drive experience with GLE43's AMG Dynamic Select System, letting you set suspension stiffness, shift points, throttle mapping and idle speed according to your driving style and putting the finishing touches on finely tuned steering and precision handling.

And GLE43 is as convenience feature-replete as it is a hard charger. Up to 38.2 cu. ft. of cargo space (up to 80.3 cu-ft with seats lowered), accessible from behind the rear seats via a standard power lift gate, provides ample storage for the long haul. A power sunroof and heated front seats are standard in GLE43, too, so you can take in pleasant weather or help GLE43 temperature controls create a custom cabin climate.
