Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Confirmed to debut at the 2016 Detroit Motor Show.
OtoTeknik has detailed the engine lineup of the 2016 Mercedes E Class, which will make its world debut at the 2016 Detroit Motor Show in January.
According to their report, the new E Class will feature a new range of modular four – and six-cylinder petrol engines available in a wide range of power outputs. The next generation 2.0-liter four cylinder unit (OM 654) will produce 184 hp in E200, 211 hp in E250 and 245 hp in the E 300 trim.
The in-line six cylinder turbo engine will have 333 hp in the E400 variant and 367 hp in the E450 AMG Sport. The range topping E 63 AMG will get a revised 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 engine.
Like the petrol lineup, the 2016 E Class will also have a new diesel lineup that includes four- and six-cylinder engines. Power outputs available are 150 hp, 194 hp and 231 hp, while the six cylinder turbodiesel produces 260 hp, reportedly.
Transmission options include a 6-speed manual (diesel lineup only) or the new 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic gearbox. The E Class will feature a 48 volt generator, so as to improve the fuel efficiency and lower emissions. A 4MATIC AWD option will be available after the initial launch phase early next year.
