New and Used SLC Prices, Mercedes Benz SLC Model Years and History
Debuting in 1998 as the SLK roadster, the two-passenger retractable hardtop convertible instantly presented a more budget-friendly means to indulge in a similar performance luxury personality as the larger SL-Class. Renamed the SLC in 2017, the name change for the model was accompanied by an extensive update. Featuring a strikingly refreshed exterior wearing a diamond radiator grille and a highly detail hood, the Mercedes-Benz SLC's interior incorporated aluminum and carbon fiber trim pieces, sport steering wheel as well as larger electronic displays. A 241-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine powered the Mercedes-Benz SLC300 model. With the 2017 Mercedes-Benz roadster, an all-new AMG model departed from its predecessor's V-8 engine opting instead for a twin-turbocharged V-6 power unit. With engine power amounting to 362-horsepower, Mercedes-AMG SLC43 could launch from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.6 seconds. The AMG model includes distinctive sport bodywork, special 18-inch wheels and upgraded braking. All engine power for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC was channeled through a 9G-Tronic automatic transmission. In 2018, an SLC300 RedArt Edition as well as an AMG SLC43 Performance Studio RedArt model incorporate unique interior and exterior details.
