The 2004 Mercedes-Benz E320 four-door sedan was powered by a 3.2-liter V6 engine that produced 221 horsepower. It was linked to a five-speed automatic transmission equipped with the Touch Shift feature, which enabled the driver to upshift and downshift by nudging the shift lever left or right. This gave the driver the option to adjust the car's performance based on driving conditions.
The 2004 sedan was equipped with anti-lock brakes, traction control, and an Electronic Stability Programming (ESP) anti-skid system.
Other standard features included leather seats with power adjustment in the front, a multi-zone automatic climate control system, dual front and side airbags, power windows, power exterior mirrors, cruise control, and an AM/FM audio system with a cassette player and a CD player. The automaker's TeleAid emergency communication and assistance program was also part of the package.
Options for the E320 sedan included Dynamic Drive seats that adjusted automatically to support the driver under heavy cornering, a twin sunroof with power sunshades, and a smart cruise control system that automatically adjusted the vehicle's speed to maintain a set distance from the car it followed.
While some thought the E320 sedan was an expensive car for its class, they noted that its handling, performance, styling, and luxury features made the car worth the price. Some even noted that the E320 was a fuel-efficient vehicle when compared to its competitors. However, some drivers reported various mechanical problems with the car.

The Mercedes-Benz E320 four-door wagon received a major redesign for 2004, as well as a number of new options. Styling updates included new headlights, an arched roof, gently flared wheel wells, and sleeker body lines, as well as a stronger body structure, making for a safer vehicle.
New options included Dynamic Drive seats that adjusted automatically to support the driver under heavy cornering, a twin sunroof with power sunshades, and a smart cruise control system that automatically adjusted the vehicle's speed to maintain a set distance from the car it followed.
Power for the 2004 E320 wagon was provided by a 3.2-liter V6 engine that produced 221 horsepower. It was linked to a five-speed automatic transmission equipped with the Touch Shift feature, which enabled the driver to upshift and downshift by nudging the shift lever left or right. This gave the driver the option to adjust the car's performance based on driving conditions.
As in previous years, the 2004 E320 wagon was equipped with the automaker's TeleAid emergency communication and assistance program, as well as the Electronic Stability Programming (ESP) anti-skid system.
Other standard features included leather seats with power adjustment in the front, a multi-zone automatic climate control system, dual front and side airbags, power windows, power exterior mirrors, cruise control, and an AM/FM audio system with a cassette player and a CD player.
While some thought the E320 wagon was an expensive car for its class, they noted that its handling, performance, styling, and luxury features made the car worth the price. Some even noted that the E320 was a fuel-efficient vehicle when compared to its competitors. However, some drivers felt interior space in the wagon was less than in its previous version, and others noted that controls for the air conditioning system could be complicated to operate.

The 2004 Mercedes-Benz E500 sedan was a rear-wheel-drive, mid-sized luxury car powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produced 302 horsepower. The engine was linked to a new, more efficient seven-speed automatic transmission, which was designed to help improve gas mileage as well as acceleration. The transmission was equipped with the Touch Shift feature, enabling the driver to upshift and downshift manually by nudging the shift lever left or right.
Design-wise, the E500 sedan was distinguished by its comtemporary styling, which included rounded, angled headlights, an arched roof, gently flared wheel wells, and sleek body lines.
The E500 sedan was well-equipped with both luxury features and high-tech mechanical systems, including a self-leveling system, anti-lock brakes, traction control, and an Electronic Stability Programming (ESP) anti-skid system. It also came with the automaker's TeleAid emergency communication and assistance program.
Other standard features included leather seats with power adjustment in the front, wood interior trim, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, multi-zone automatic climate control, dual front and side airbags, power windows, power exterior mirrors, cruise control, and an AM/FM audio system with a CD player.
A new DVD-based navigation system was among the options. Other options included Dynamic Drive seats that adjusted automatically to support the driver under heavy cornering, a twin sunroof with power sunshades, and a smart cruise control system that automatically adjusted the vehicle's speed to maintain a set distance from the car it followed.
While drivers noted that the 2004 E500 sedan delivered quick acceleration, a smooth ride, responsive handling, and plenty of creature comforts, a number of drivers reported having numerous problems with the car, including problems with the transmission, brakes, and electrical system. Many also noted that the car was noisy and unreliable.

New for 2004, the Mercedes-Benz E500 wagon was equipped with the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system, which provided improved handling, stability, and traction in all types of driving conditions. The wagon also came with third-row seating that folded down to provide additional cargo space.
Power for the E500 wagon was provided by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produced 302 horsepower. The engine was linked to a new, more efficient seven-speed automatic transmission, which was designed to help improve gas mileage as well as acceleration.
