Template talk:Mercedes-Benz vehicles
|WikiProject Automobiles||(Rated Template-class)|
Here's a prototype of a Mercedes model template, based on Template:BMW cars, which I based on Template:Ferrari vehicles. Numbers for new SL, CLK and SLK not known yet. It might well be best to take this all the way back to the 1950s. The new CL coupé has its own number, C215. Comments welcome. -- Hotlorp 01:38, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Not sure why Smart cars are in the list, I've changed it to A-Class. Feel free to revert if I'm wrong, but please state why here. Mat-C 12:20, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Was something horrible... :(*) hahaha --Zzzzzzus 13:40, 26 October 2005 (UTC)zzzzzzus
Mercedes-Benz W202, Mercedes-Benz W203 and Mercedes-Benz W204 were redirected to the C-Class article, following a deletion discussion. You may want to reorganize this template and related articles in light of that decision. -- nae'blis (talk) 19:19, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
The maybach is included while it's not sale under the Mercedes brand. Arguably, it can be included to have a complete overview of Daimler Benz's cars, but then smart should be included too. --126.96.36.199 22:31, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
Wouldn't categorizing the SLR as a supercar (new category in this table) rather than yet another coupé make more sense? Compare the R8 in the Audi template or even the Z8 in the BMW template. The Seventh Taylor (talk) 21:41, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
M Class / ML Class
"It is called ML and the page it links to is a page for ML. An M-Class does not exist" according to User:Andrew Nutter.
- Oh yes, it does, if we can trust the company itself to be a reliable source for this. See Mercedes Benz M-Class page. The Seventh Taylor (talk) 07:25, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
What about SLC (C107)?
In streamlining, SLC should fall under Large coupe, preceding C126 as it was manufactired from 1971 to 1981 being replaced by C126 - SEC. In that period, large coupe was based on SL chassis (hence SL-C) rather than on S as with previous W112 Coupe and later W126 Coupe.
SL-C is longer by 12" (approximately) than SL, it is a full 2+2 seater, the whole range is dubbed C107 (opposed to R107 - SL). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:56, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
- I would say that it is soon going to be time to split the Benz timeline into one more section. ⊂| Mr.choppers |⊃ (talk) 12:51, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Splitting the Timeline
This timeline is large compared to most vehicle brand timelines. I suggest that it be split into a car timeline and a light truck (van and suv) timeline such as the Ford, Chevrolet, and Dodge/Ram timelines.184.108.40.206 (talk) 01:50, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
I think this template has some problems with scope. The template is called "Mercedes-Benz vehicles", but it doesn't include all Mercedes vehicles - buses and trucks are left out. On the other hand, the header row says "Mercedes-Benz road car timeline, 1990s–present" but the template covers more than just cars. So, what should we do?
- Cut down the template so that it only covers cars. Vans could, perhaps, be put in a different template.
- Rename the template, and change the header row, so that they reflect what's currently in the template.
- Add other Mercedes-Benz vehicles that are currently excluded.
