Converting those prices to U.S. dollars, we find that the E53 coupe starts at $94,472, the CLS53 at $97,758, and the E53 convertible at $100,810. Now, it is possible that these prices could be lower or higher for the U.S. market. But we have reason to believe the prices won't change much. Looking at starting prices for the E-Class sedan, we found that a U.S.-market E-Class starts at $52,950 without destination charge, and a German-market E-Class starts at $51,946 when converted to U.S. dollars.
Regardless of absolute final pricing, all three of these models will come with a hopped-up version of Mercedes-Benz's new 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six. It makes 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. Odds are all three models will become available in the U.S. not long after the European versions roll out.
