The all-new Mercedes S-Class gets a significant price increase.
The all-new 2021 Mercedes S-Class is a technological tour de force. Mercedes has exhaustively detailed the new flagship sedan's cutting edge technology, but pricing details were kept under wraps. We recently learned how much the new S-Class will cost in the UK, and now pricing details have finally been announced for America. Arriving in US dealers in the first half of 2021, the new Mercedes S-Class Sedan will be available in three trims tailored for the US market: the Luxury Line, AMG Line, and Executive Line.
In the Luxury Line, the S 500 4MATIC will start at $109,800, while the S 580 4MATIC will start at $116,300. Upgrading to the AMG Line will set you back at least $114,100 for the S 500 4MATIC and $120,600 for the S 580 4MATIC Sedan.
Available exclusively for the S 580 4MATIC, the range-topping Executive Line starts at $131,450. All prices exclude the $1,050 destination and delivery charge. This is a significant price increase over the 2020 S-Class, which started at $94,250 for the S450 Sedan.
As standard, the new S-Class is equipped with a 12.8-inch OLED multimedia touchscreen display in the center console running the latest MBUX infotainment system and can be fitted with up to five screens.
An available augmented reality head-up display can also project navigation and driver assistance images in the driver's field of vision. Standard safety systems include nine airbags and a 360-degree surround-view camera with a new 3D view assist feature to make parking and navigating tight spaces easier.
Under the hood, the S 500 4MATIC is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six producing 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, while the S 580 4MATIC is offered with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 generating 496 hp and 516 lb-ft. Both powertrains are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and feature an EQ boost integrated starter generator providing an extra 21 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.
As standard, the AMG Line comes with AMG body styling, AMG floor mats, and AMG wheels. As you would expect, the range-topping Executive Line is the most lavishly equipped model, with active multicontour rear seats, four-zone climate control, two integrated 11.6-inch touchscreens, and a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear armrests, and rear seat heating included among other standard luxuries.
