Will debut alongside the Shooting Brake, followed by official launch in LA.
The upcoming facelift for the still-beautiful Mercedes-Benz CLS will finally happen this October. The confirmation came from Daimler CEO, Dr. Dieter Zetsche, at the company's annual press conference. The CLS four-door coupe and its Shooting Brake brother were described as a "new generation," but they're actually only going to be an extensive facelift inside and out. Following the debut, the cars will be on display at the November Los Angeles Auto Show.
While we have already shown you some spy pics of the next CLS, details remain limited regarding its engine lineup and additional specs. For the CLS63 AMG, expect a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8- much like the one in the current model. However, it should be good for more than the current 557 horsepower. Inside, both models will integrate Mercedes-Benz's latest infotainment system, including its large LCD screen. At the same time and on the other end of the spectrum, Mercedes will debut its new B Class, following the Smart ForFour unveiling in July.
