The online version of Car and Driver is following in the footsteps of Autocar and Auto Express in creating news from made-up sources and is the latest automotive media to do this type of thing concerning the MLC/MLS crossover.

Basing their success on the fact that most Internet users are taking for granted every bit of news with “insider info” taped all over it if it comes from a trusted source, Car and Driver gives a poorly-documented scoop on the upcoming Mercedes-Benz crossover and tells everyone that the model has been confirmed to be launched in 2014.

We know for a fact that the MLC or MLS version of the M-Class is to begin production in 2015 from the above image, which was snapped inside the Mercedes-Benz facility in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, back in... November 2011. In other words, 2014 will only give us a Vision concept car that previews the new model at the most, with the production version to arrive during 2015.
