Like the E400 wagon, the sedan gets a detuned version of the E43's twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. Power is sent to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic. There's no rear-drive version, and Mercedes doesn't offer a manual transmission on any U.S.-bound vehicle. Still, with 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque, we're sure most owners will be happy with the powertrain.
As peppy as the standard four-cylinder E300 may be, the E400 is sure to run circles around it. It sounds a hell of a lot better, too. Performance numbers haven't been released, but expect a sub-5-second 0-60 mph run. The heavier wagon will hit 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds.
Pricing for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 hasn't been announced, but $62,000 seems like a good estimate. The E300 sedan starts at $53,945 while the E400 wagon will set you back at least $64,045. In addition to the E400 sedan, other 2018 E-Class variants include the E400 coupe and cabriolet and the 603 horsepower E63 S wagon. No matter what you're looking for, Mercedes seems to have a car for you.
