About this car

The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has been around since 1954, originally known as the SL Roadster until 1994. 2020 was the final production year for the SL series, but it was slated to relaunch in late 2021 for the 2022 model year as the SL55 and SL63. Mercedes-Benz states on its website it plans to release the all-new 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL Roadster in late 2021, but offers no new information or updates as of December 2021.

But rumor has it that the newly designed 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL55 will ring in at an estimated MSRP of $100,000 to start. It’ll be powered by a 9-speed 469-horsepower twin-turbo V-8, and have all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive steering as standard for improved performance and handling. Preliminary speed tests clocked it in at 3.8 seconds on the 0-60 acceleration test, and it’s said to reach a top speed of 183 mph.

Its real-world mileage is a mystery, but this luxury sports car is expected to get approximately 25 mpg on the highway. That’s all we know, for now.

It’s also unclear what safety inclusions and add-ons we can expect for the SL55. But typical safety features include standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection while lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist, while adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode is available.
