The semiautonomous features go beyond mere adaptive cruise control. The Benz also has a steering assist system that can take on sweeping curves on the highway and a lane change assist that does all the work once the driver signals.

For 2018 Mercedes-Benz opted for a 4.0-liter V8 that puts out more power than last year's 4.7-liter. The new engine is good for 463 horses, although torque remains the same, at 516 pound-feet of twist.
