Introducing The Mercedes-Maybach S550 4MATIC Sedan

2017 Mercedes-Maybach S550 4MATIC Specifications

When you hear the name Maybach, either someone has an excellent taste in cars or a mediocre hip hop song is about to come on. Either way, dancing your heart out is an appropriate response. Mercedes-Maybach does not show up in the news often enough, but when it does, it means the automotive world just got better. That is certainly the case with the 2017 Mercedes-Maybach S550 4MATIC introduction.

New Mercedes-Maybach Vehicle

Maybach has never before been associated with a Mercedes-Benz vehicle that wasn’t the top of the line. The Mercedes-Maybach S550 4MATIC sedan is the first of its kind and a blessing for luxury enthusiasts all around the globe.

Mercedes-Maybach S550 vs S600

The biggest difference between the Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-Maybach vehicles is the extended wheelbase. Like the S600, the Maybach S550 4MATIC comes with a 132.5-inch wheelbase. So what sets them apart? One thing is for certain, you won’t be able to tell the difference on the inside unless the accelerator is on the floor.

Engine Performance

Really, the only difference between the 2017 Mercedes-Maybach S600 and the Mercedes-Maybach S550 4MATIC is the engine. The S550 4MATIC keeps the engine from the regular S550, which is a 4.7L biturbo V8 with 449 horsepower. This is 74 ponies less than the S600, but is still more than enough to make your tummy tingle. Honestly, who needs 612 lb-ft of torque in a luxury sedan anyway? If you have any questions about the new 2017 Mercedes-Maybach S550 4MATIC sedan, leave a comment below!
