Feb. 15, 2013 - PRLog -- Mercedes-Benz of Hoffman Estates ( has big news for car shoppers who expect to be buying a new SUV in 2015: there should be an all-new addition to the Mercedes-Benz lineup by then. Based on reports from The Tuscaloosa News, Mercedes-Benz will begin production of a new SUV at their plant located in Vance, Alabama, just outside of Tuscaloosa. While it is unknown exactly how the new SUV would fit into the current Mercedes-Benz lineup, it will join the GL-Class SUV, the R-Class crossover, and the M-Class mid-sized SUV in production at the Alabama plant.

This new model, which hasn’t been given a name yet, will be available by 2015. The governor of Alabama, Robert Bentley, who got an exclusive sneak preview, has described it as sleek and eye-catching. Based on that description, the new vehicle is expected to be a smaller crossover that will slot under the Mercedes-Benz R-Class, which will probably based on the same platform as the ML-Class. It will probably offer more car-like driving dynamics and sportier exterior styling.  

By announcing the production of a fifth SUV at the Tuscaloosa auto plant, Mercedes-Benz has demonstrated a continued commitment to production of vehicles on United States soil. The American south has long been a major producer of vehicles from foreign automakers, and that doesn’t look to change any time soon. The vehicles produced in the Tuscaloosa Mercedes-Benz plant don’t only go to North American markets — they represent the German automaker all over the world.

Since several people, including the Alabama governor, have previewed the new Mercedes-Benz SUV, it is likely that the new vehicle will be shown off at one of the upcoming auto shows, in Geneva, Paris, or maybe next year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
