04.17.17 - Mercedes-Benz SLC

Don’t allow Mercedes-Benz to confuse you, the new SLC used to be called the SLK. There has to be some logic to this change and we don’t want to dwell on this change too much. Knowing this change has taken place allows us to admire what the new SLC brings to the market.

To power this sports coupe you’ll see two engines to choose from. The SLC300 comes to you with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 241 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. The new SLC43 AMG model is powered by a 3.0-liter twin turbocharged V6 engine that pushes the power to 362 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines use a nine-speed automatic transmission that can give you the right way to enjoy the ride and with the AMG model you can reach sixty mph in as little as 4.6 seconds. Gone from the lineup are the other two engines, which makes this one of the rare paired down models by Mercedes-Benz.
