Hee Hee!

I love their opening euphamism:

"...Mercedes-Benz has become somewhat of a master in the art of identifying emerging markets and adjusting its lineup accordingly...."

Gee, when I was in the auto industry, some of us called it "Me-Too Marketing". How many YEARS have the likes of the Avalanche, Escalade, Explorer Sport-Trak, etc been cultivating this ground and developing a market??? The picture shown even picks up the cues of the angular lower front grille openings of the Escalade. What hope do the purists have when the "new and improved MB" (DCAG-MB) gets nothing but slaps on the back and accolades for following the herd?

PS - of course we mustn't forget that it's an auto rag reporting and if they panned it, they'd get dropped to the bottom of the list for receiving a free test vehicle.
