One of the longer-running vehicles on the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the Mercedes-Benz SL is a grand tourer sports car available right here in Bluffton SC. For the 2020 model year, the SL is only available as a 2-door roadster. This year the 2020 Mercedes-Benz SL marks the end of its seventh generation since inception, with the first generation having been kicked off all the way back in 1954.
For the 2020 model year, the Mercedes-Benz SL is only available in two different models, the SL 450 Roadster and SL 550 Roadster.
Each version of the 2-door roadster offers its own powertrain, with the SL 450 being powered by a 3.0L V6 biturbo engine. It’s capable of generating a whopping 362 horsepower alongside 369 pound-feet of torque. All of that power enables the SL 450 Roadster to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds.
Alternatively, the more powerful SL 550 Roadster is powered by a 4.7L V8 biturbo engine. It, in turn, boosts performance by generating up to 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of torque. This shortens its acceleration time from 0-60 mph down to 4.3 s.
Either choice represents an incredible option for those sports car enthusiasts who love to feel the wind in their hair, especially with all that power. With either option, you can rest assured that you’ll have a premium experience each time you hit the road, whether you plan on utilizing the vehicle’s full performance potential or not, thanks to a host of luxury features found inside and out, including things like its standard harman/kardon surround sound system or the available upgraded 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen BeoSound system!
