Kylie Jenner Buys a New Mercedes-Benz Convertible as a Birthday Gift for Friend
It must be great to be friends with reality TV star Kylie Jenner. You get to do all the fabulous rich-people stuff like walk red-carpets, get into any club you want, and receive Mercedes-Benz convertibles for birthday presents.
Yes, you heard that right.
Jenner recently shared a photo on her Instagram page of the new black Mercedes-Benz convertible she gifted her friend Jordyn Woods. Along with the picture, Jenner included this caption,”Happy birthday Jordyn. Thank you for being you. Most down to earth selfless human being! I hope you enjoy it.”

There’s no words to describe how I feel.. I just don’t know what I did to deserve this. I can never thank @kyliejenner for motivating me to always do my best and always opening up new opportunities. Do good and good things will happen. Blessed and grateful always. Love you and thank you again to everyone who made me feel special on this 18th year. Finally

Neither Jenner nor Woods specified which Mercedes-Benz model it is, but the website for Mercedes-Benz Ontario only lists two available black Mercedes-Benz convertibles: the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E400 and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350.
Since the Mercedes-Benz pictured is clearly a sedan because of its back seats, that means Jenner’s gift probably was the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E400. This RWD subcompact vehicle features a twin-turbo V6 engine and seven-speed transmission, which work together to produce 329 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, this Mercedes-Benz gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E400 convertible sells for approximately $70,000, but that’s when all the extra features are included, which makes it only about $430,000 less expensive than the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman that rapper Drake recently purchased.
But, the E-Class E400 does comes available with a Harman Kardon Logic 7® surround sound system, so Jenner and her friends can still enjoy the music of the rapper Tyga, who is Jenner’s boyfriend.

Samuel Huist is easily the tallest member (6-feet 5-inches) of the The News Wheel team. He enjoys listening to hip-hop music and loves watching NBA basketball. Sam is also a Dayton, Ohio native and doesn’t seem to mind that distinction as much anymore. His first car was a 1996 Ford Taurus he could barely fit in. Like many young folks, he seemed more concerned about the radio in his first car than actually doing the work to maintain an automobile, so sadly it’s no longer with us. See more articles by Samuel.
