2014 S-Class with sport package

Mercedes-Benz has announced pricing for the all-new 2014 S-Class. With an MSRP of $92,900 as its base price, it represents a price/value improvement of 2.8% versus the outgoing 2013-MY, which was priced at $95,000 (a $2,100 difference).

According to Mercedes-Benz, the 2014 S-Class features heated armrests, ionized air purification via the Air-Balance Package, a Burmester sound system and an intelligent suspension system called Magic Body Control, which sees the road ahead and adjusts the suspension accordingly.

"Every time we introduce a new generation, we have the opportunity to deliver more power, greater efficiency and unmatched safety, backed with an improved value proposition,” said Steve Cannon, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA. “Not only is the new S-Class the most intelligent car on the road, it’s also a smart choice.”

Known as Intelligent Drive, the S-Class offers more than 30 standard and optional active and passive safety technologies, says Mercedes-Benz. For example, the Driver Assistance Package — available for $2,800 in the 2014 S-Class — offers Pre-Safe Brake (autonomously brakes the vehicle up to 31 mph with or without driver input), Pre-Safe Plus (rear-facing radar that senses possible rear collisions), Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Protection.

The fall 2013 S-Class lineup includes 2014 S550 ($92,900; October 2013 launch), 2014 S550 4MATIC ($95,900; November 2013 launch) and 2014 S63 AMG 4MATIC ($139,500; November 2013 launch).
