2015 MERCEDES-BENZ E-CLASS: Mercedes-Benz brings subtle updates to the 2015 E-Class Sedan and Wagon, both displayed at the 107th Edition of the Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 14-22, 2015). Beginning this model year, the E400 coupe/cabriolet replaces the E350 variants. The models on view include the Mercedes-Benz E400 Hybrid Sedan, E250 BlueTEC 4MATIC Sedan, E400 4MATIC Sedan and Wagon and E550 4MATIC sedan, coupe and cabriolet. Numerous modifications have given the E-Class new headlamps that incorporate all light functions within a single lens, and two different front-end designs. The Luxury version comes with the classic sedan three-louver grille and star on the hood, while the Sport version wears the grille with an integrated star like the brand's high performance sports car models. A new exterior feature line runs below the structure line from the rear door to the tail light, giving the car greater visual length. The rear end houses new LED tail lamps that emphasize the width of the vehicle, and the Sport models feature exposed dual exhaust pipes. A large section of powertrains are on the checklist. Engines include a 3.5-liter V-6 (302hp), 2.1L four-cylinder turbodiesel (195hp) and a 5.5L twin-turbo V-8 (402hp). All engines are linked to a more fuel-efficient seven-speed automatic transmission, with rear-wheel or 4MATIC all-wheel drive configurations offered. Other highlights include new steering wheels with standard shift paddles, color instrument cluster display and LED daytime running lights (DRL). New driver assistance systems are offered such as Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist with automatic brake intervention, PRE-SAFE Brake with Automatic Emergency Braking, Adaptive Highbeam Assist and Nightview Assist PLUS with pedestrian detection. With back row seating lowered in the Wagon, there is a total of 39.37 cu. ft. of cargo room to haul your gear. And, when properly equipped, the E-Class can tow up to 5,271 pounds.
