Report: Mercedes-Benz to build completely new SUV at Tuscaloosa plant in AL by 2015

The TuscaloosaNews  reported that Mercedes-Benz is adding a completely new SUV to their production line at their factory in Alabama by 2015. This news comes after Daimler AG’s CEO, Dieter Zetsche, told Mercedes-Benz’s shareholders in Germany that a fifth SUV model is destined for the plant in the states. Though specifics about the vehicle remain a mystery.

“At our plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, we are currently preparing for the production of another new SUV: an especially dynamic all-terrain vehicle,” Zetsche said at the meeting. “You will hear more about that soon.”
