New-generation V12 Mercedes-Maybach to go on sale in the U.S. in 2022
The Mercedes-Maybach brand represents the manifestation of sophisticated luxury in its most advanced form. The new-generation Mercedes-Maybach S-Class demonstrates an elegant combination of sublime beauty, refinement and tailored craftsmanship, alongside its industry-leading innovations in terms of intelligent drive, connectivity and driving comfort. Today Mercedes-Benz USA unveiled the highly exclusive, all-new Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4MATIC Sedan, offering levels of power and performance to meet even the most discerning standards. The 2022 Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4MATIC Sedan will arrive in U.S. dealerships in the first half of 2022
Equipped with a handcrafted 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine, the S 680 4MATIC is the most powerful model in the Mercedes-Maybach lineup, capable of producing 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque and rocketing the luxury sedan from zero to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. The new-generation S 680 now includes the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system for the first time. Delivering 31% torque distribution to the front axle and 69% to the rear axle, the 4MATIC system offers the best possible traction and driving stability while delivering the highest level of ride comfort and driving dynamics. The further-developed front axle differential has been optimized in terms of its weight and friction values. Further refinements of the luxury sedan include active road noise compensation, which helps make the already serene interior environment of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class even quieter. Similar to headphones with noise suppression, the system reduces unwanted low-frequency noises using counter-phased sound waves. Active road noise compensation is a function of the new Burmester® High-End 4D Surround Sound System.
