Mercedes AMG Sport Models Debuting at the Detroit Auto Show

Whether you’re already the proud owner of a Mercedes or you’ve been thinking about purchasing your first, you’ll likely be excited to know what the company has in store for January. Not only is January the start of a new year, but it’s also when the Detroit Auto Show is held. As you can probably guess from where it takes place, this show is significant for many auto companies.


Because the Detroit Auto Show is a major event, the exciting news is that there’s already some information floating around about the vehicles Mercedes-Benz plans to debut during it. Of all the information that’s come out, the most exciting is the company’s expansion into a Mercedes-Benz AMG Sport line of vehicles.

What to Expect from the New Mercedes AMG Sport Line

The best way to describe this new range of vehicles is being what will bridge the gap between a standard Mercedes fitted with an AMG Sports package and a complete AMG performance variant. What that means in a practical sense is the vehicles will include features like upgraded brakes, suspensions and engines. It’s also likely that many of these vehicles will include all-wheel drive as a standard feature.

Confirmed Information Directly from Mercedes-Benz

Since the Detroit Auto Show is a big event, car makers like to create a lot of mystery and interest around their debuts. That’s why it’s common for companies to drop hints without giving away everything. Not surprisingly, that’s exactly what Mercedes has already done.

In a press release coming straight from Affalterbach, the company confirmed that the first two AMG Sport models will hit the stage in January. While everyone will have to wait until the show gets underway to learn exactly what the vehicles are, there’s a lot of speculation that the two debuts will be a MLC crossover coupe and a C450 AMG Sport sedan.


An Aggressive Growth Strategy

In the same official press release, Mercedes explained exactly why they’re going down this route. 2014 marked a big milestone for the AMG brand. The reason is they set a new sales record of 40,000 vehicles sold across the globe.

Since Mercedes is a company that has never been content to rest on its laurels, it’s not surprising that the new AMG Sport line of part of a larger goal to double sales over the next three years. While that’s a very aggressive goal, Mercedes has the quality and other ingredients needed to make it happen.
