Design a Mercedes-Benz for America?
I live in the frozen Tundra, sometimes we call it Rural Wisconsin. I am satisfied with my Pope-mobile ML350. However, I cannot decide yet on any of the new MB SUV's.
When I compare my ML350 to other "Big" American made trucks and SUV's, I realize that my car is smaller in size, capacity, width, and many other features. American cars are somehow designed for long, long, very long highway trips.
I admit that a trip from Madison, Wisconsin to Denver, Colorado, and back, in my ML350, is less comfortable than doing it in a Lincoln Navigator or a Cadillac Escalade or a Chevy Yukon.
The size of the cabin, the silence, the huge powerful engine, all of these features appeal to the American highway traveler, especially if you have a large family. People do not "sit tight" for 14 hours in the car. They "move around a lot". American SUV's cater to this behavior.
When will I see a MB SUV designed for the American Rural Northern taste?
