Mar 14, 2008 - Daimeler-Benz's premium Mercedes SUV line sold in the U.S. will soon offer HD Radio as an installed option. In addition to a telematics package with features like Bluetooth hands-free control and color graphic displays, American buyers will have an array of audio options such as a true-diversity radio tuner with both HD Radio and Siruis satellite radio capability. A DSP-based Harmon-Kardon Logic 7 high-powered audio system is also available.

Three units are available. No word yet from Daimler on price or availability dates.
