is Mercedes going to chnage the engine in the new 2018 E class sedan
The engine lineup for the U.S. market also seems poised to put some distance between the E- and the C-class. While the E300 sedan available on our shores shares its turbocharged four-cylinder with the C300, the two-door E will be offered only as an E400. As it does on the E-class wagon, this moniker signifies a standard twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 making 329 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. This same engine was installed in the previous E400 coupe, but a new nine-speed automatic transmission replaces the previous seven-speed for improved acceleration and improved fuel economy, claims Mercedes. Rear-wheel-drive and 4MATIC all-wheel-drive versions will be offered, and Mercedes says the RWD E400 gets from zero to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds, 0.9 second quicker than the company’s claim for the outgoing model.
