The new 2022 Mercedes SL will be an attempt to restore the once-legendary Benz roadster to its former luster by way of a fabric top and small but usable rear seats.

Fully developed by AMG in Affalterbach, the next-gen SL will be the architecture beneath the two-seat AMG GT. He goes back to the gullwinged SLS AMG. This reinvention will be more in the spirit of a grand tourer for two reasons: Mercedes needs to differentiate it from the GT roadster, and the SL will replace the S class cabriolet. 

Engine option for 2022 Mercedes SL Class

The new Mercedes SL maybe won't get the outgoing SL's 12-cylinder, which Mercedes silently removed from the order sheet in mid-2018. Mercedes will provide turbocharged straight-sixes and V-8s with 48-volt hybrid assistance will ensure that the SL doesn't lack for power or torque.

The Mercedes SL550 will come with the 4.7-liter V-8, while the AMG SL63 has a 5.5-liter V-8 under the hood. According some rumors maybe the AMG SL65 will get the old 6.0-liter V-12. All three mill will be discontinued for the new generation. While the V-12 will go down together with the AMG SL65 trim, the SL550 will disappear to make way for the AMG SL53, while the AMG SL63 will have a new unit.

This new engine will be the familiar twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 that already motivates almost all AMG cars and SUVs out there. This engine generates up to 577 horsepower in the AMG GT sports car, but it cranks out up to 603 horses in the S-Class. Needless to say, the new SL won’t lack the power in AMG trim. And it won’t in non-AMG trim either. The current 3.0-liter V-6 will be revised for the new generation, and output will increase to around 380 horses.

Mercedes SL Release date and price

Release date for new 2022 Mercedes SL will be at the second part of 2021. The SL model with Six-cylinder engine option will begin with the price just under $100,000.
