Graduating from college is a big accomplishment, and Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park is proud to participate in the Mercedes-Benz Rising Star College Graduate Program. While the thought of owning a Mercedes-Benz car as a recent (or upcoming) college grad may seem impossible, we’re here to tell you that you can! 

What is the Mercedes-Benz Rising Star Program? 

Designed in the hopes of creating Mercedes-Benz customers for life, the Rising Star Program offers comprehensive assistance. At our Mercedes-Benz dealership, we help college graduates and first-time buyers who may not have an extensive credit history but are otherwise well-positioned to make Mercedes-Benz ownership a reality.  

Eligible vehicles from Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park include new or certified pre-owned Mercedes vehicles only, and the amount financed cannot exceed $45,000.

  • Graduation from an accredited college within the previous 24 months
