New Mercedes-Benz Tells You When to Shift

We’re starting to see elements added to levitra india pharmacy cars that help tell the driver when and cheap viagra paypal how to save gas, rather than having the driver rely on gathering their own tips and implementing them. Nissan’s Eco Pedal is one such gadget. And now Mercedes-Benz has their own.

Their new C-Class will have a C 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Prime Edition that will help drivers save fuel by telling them when to switch gears. A display will inform the driver of generic cialis next day delivery the best time to shift to maximize mileage. We’ll be able to see this in action this fall, when about 5,000 of these models exit the factory. The model is part of the BlueEFFICIENCY series that will have various green-ish measures such as reduced weight, better aerodynamics, and improved fuel consumption. All rather ho-hum measures, but it’s something.

Not new

This feature existed in cars in Germany 15 years ago. It was a little light that went on when it was a good time to shift.

But then again, not much is really new anymore. It just gets rediscovered and marketed as new.

I know it is not the point of the article, but glad you used the picture of the agressively styled and good looking C63 AMG. It is an amazing looking car but gets a quite poor 19MPG highway.

Why not consider a robotic gear box like mentioned in this blog? It can change gear on look there 50mg cialis retail price a more efficient way while keeping the most ideal moment for that situation in mind. I drive with VW with such a DSG box and I don't need to look at a display to know when to change gear and concentrate on traffic.

My 1991 Jeep Wrangler had this feature. In fact I think every Wrangler has this feature. This is nothing new or unique, just marketing. It makes me sick when companies take things that have been around for years and make it look like they invented the idea yesterday.
Is that really that special?

With all of the green technology out now that people are paying for, how about some love for the simple manual transmission? Better fuel economy, better performance, yet 90% of Americans are too lazy to shift their own gears.
