2006 E-Class Overview

The 2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class features a more powerful standard engine, the one that comes on the most popular model.This new V6 is a welcome improvement, but it really does not change the basic character of what was already a fine automobile.

The E-Class in many ways epitomizes the Mercedes-Benz brand, at least in the eyes of many consumers.It's the company's best selling line worldwide and one of the best-selling Mercedes models in the United States.

The E-Class describes a full line of big, roomy sedans that are solid, safe, practical, comfortable, luxurious, and fast.Yet the cost of operating the popular E350, in terms of fuel consumption and maintenance, can be quite reasonable.The E-Class features some of the world's most advanced safety technology.And, what most people think of when they think of Mercedes, the E-Class expresses status in elegant, understated fashion.

Since a frame-up overhaul for model year 2003, the E-Class has expanded steadily, and now includes seven variants: sedans that seat five, wagons that seat seven, V6 engines, V8s or one of the finest diesels offered in the United States, optional weather-busting all-wheel drive and screaming super-performance models from supertuner AMG.Any of these seven models delivers a combination of attributes surpassed by few cars or trucks anywhere.

For 2006, there is a slight change in E-Class nomenclature, thanks to a change in engine size.The E350 sedan and wagon are powered by a new-generation 3.5-liter V6 that produces 20 percent more power than the previous 3.2-liter V6 (used in the E320) with no decrease in fuel mileage.The E350 is the Mercedes' first dual-overhead cam V6 and it generates 268 horsepower, compared to 221 from the 3.2-liter V6 it replaces.Yet, matched to Mercedes' high-tech, seven-speed automatic transmission, the E350 loses nothing in mileage to its less powerful predecessor.

Meanwhile, there is no better example of how far passenger car diesel technology has advanced than the E320 CDI with Mercedes' impressive common-rail direct injection turbodiesel engine.

Also new for 2006 is a supercharged E55 AMG wagon boasting 469 horsepower.Woe is the guy in the sports car who smirks at this stodgy station wagon.It is truly a wolf in sheep's clothing.

The Mercedes E-Class is an icon, a benchmark in its class.It competes in one of the most competitive market segments today as it goes toe-to-toe with outstanding luxury sedans such as the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Acura RL.
