Mercedes-Benz E Class
Queens Mercedes-Benz E Class | Long Island City Used Cars
A perennial top pick in the midsize luxury class, the first generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan was extolled for its superior mix of performance, amenity and safety. In addition to the sedan, Mercedes subsequently added a coupe and wagon versions to the lineup. All E-Class vehicles carry Mercedes quality and luxury inherent in their make-up; the differences tend to lie primarily in the diverse and ever changing engine lineups. While many of the cars were turning in impressive results – the 300E went from zero to 60 mph in less than 8 seconds – determined driving enthusiasts might want to consider the limited-edition 500E sedan, which between 1992-1994 boasted a Porsche-designed 322-hp V8.
The second generation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class was manufactured between 1996-2002. The E300D diesel, the E320 inline six-cylinder, and the E420 V8 were all offered as sedans. Engines and powertrains were upgraded and tweaked throughout the course of the generation, and keeping up with brand changes, enhancements and revisions became a bit more complex. Noteworthy engine news included the debut of the racecar-inspired E55 AMG, which proudly demonstrated its 349-hp V8. Dependable and solidly built, a second-generation E-Class of any ilk is a smart choice. The third-generation E-Class spanned 2003-’09, and again proved that Mercedes loved to tweak its lineup. At that time the family tree included the E320 sedan and wagon and the E500 sedan.
In 2003, the E55 AMG sedan with a 469-hp supercharged V8 burst onto the scene, and in 2004 the “new” generation wagon appeared as an E320 and E500. The E500 morphed into the E550 for 2007, signaling arrival of the 5.5-liter V8. In reviews, experts lauded this E-Class across the board, and pre-owned car shoppers should note that a third generation is nearly as desirable as newer models. The current, fourth-generation E-Class began in 2010 model year. Until 2012, all but the Bluetec showcased different engines. The E350 ran on a 3.5-liter V6, the E550 came with a class competitive 5.5-liter naturally aspirated V8 and the E63 AMG had a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8. The latter generated 518 horsepower, and was considered a superior engine.
The current model versions showcase legitimate diversity – with four different body styles, and engines ranging from a fuel-efficient diesel to an ultra-high-performance AMG V8, there’s an E-Class for practically any buyer. The E-Class’ popularity is based on the fact that it outshines the competition in every aspect a luxury car should exhibit – elegance, safety, prestigious reputation and of course, performance. All E-Class vehicles will provide the requisite Mercedes luxury and amenity, and the performance of any E Class is worthy of the test drive.
