MBUSA Releases 2007 Mercedes Model Information
Posted on May 26, 2006 at 10:20 AM CST

Mercedes-Benz LogoMBUSA has announced today the full list of 2007 Mercedes model updates we can expect to see hitting U.S. shores in the coming months. 

While I could restate all of next year's model changes myself, the list is rather extensive, so instead I think it's best if I let the press release take it from here.

So now, without further ado, the 2007 Mercedes model update list.
