The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan draws its power from a 2.0L four-cylinder engine capable of supplying up to 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque to your command. That means making zero to 60 mph in as little as 6.2 seconds. For track-like performance and truly pioneering power, opt for the AMG®-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo, which is able to harness up to a heart-pounding 396 hp and 384 lb-ft.

Each engine has its output artfully refined through a new 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. Boasting a greater number of ratios, the system changes gears seamlessly and smoothly for enhanced fuel-efficiency, comfort, and control. When you desire direct control, just use the electronic selector and shift paddles.


The power of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class delivers a distinct edge over the competition, but it’s in terms of poise, composure, and confident agility that the line really hits its mark.

Each model includes a DYNAMIC SELECT system for customizable driving dynamics, plus AGILITY CONTROL® for balanced performance and an advanced Dynamic Cornering Assist torque-vectoring system to detect and correct understeer. Available upgrades include new self-leveling and adaptive AIR BODY CONTROL and a top-of-the-line 4MATIC® all-wheel-drive system, which fully integrates with the vehicle’s 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4ETS®) for exceptional stability and control.

If you want to sit back and soak up the ride, just use available DRIVE PILOT technology. Like other adaptive cruise control systems, it maintains a safe distance between your vehicle and the one ahead, but it also changes lanes automatically at the touch of the turn-signal lever and keeps you between the lines through curves and corners.
