The 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL is the very definition of an all-new
In just over a month, we say goodbye to 2021 and welcome another year of awesome stuff. While tech companies like Samsung and Apple have officially pulled out of hardware updates, the auto industry still has a few tricks up its sleeve. Just like the 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL for people looking for a sporty yet stylish roadster.
A few months ago, the three-pointed star emblem was promoting a lot of exciting updates. Even with these out of the way, there’s no time to rest when you still have some awesome rides to show off. According to Mercedes-AMG, the 2022 SL is a major change from the outgoing generation.
It will be built on a new “aluminum space frame with self-supporting structure”. This is a new shot with nothing from its predecessors. The chassis, for example, uses a mixture of aluminum and fiber composites. As we all know, these materials normally do wonders for weight management.
This soft top convertible (no hardtop option) is available in two versions: SL55 and SL63. The two share the same twin-turbo V8 engine but different performance specifications. The former develops 469 horsepower, while the latter is tuned for 577 horsepower. The rest of its powertrain features a 9-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering.
The Mercedes-AMG SL 2022 is a two-door roadster with a 2 + 2 seating configuration. Thus, rear passengers should not expect too much leeway. Don’t worry about driving with the roof down in cold weather, as the AirScarf feature keeps you and other occupants warm and toasty.
Cockpit entertainment comes from the MBUX system with an 11.9-inch touchscreen. Meanwhile, the driver has a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel. More details on the 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL are expected to follow soon.
