Mercedes-Benz Debuts Green SUVs in New YorkPosted on April 7th, 2009
Automaker unveils E63 AMG sedan, ML450 Hybrid and GL350 BlueTEC at this week’s auto show
Mercedes-Benz introduces a new high-performance sedan, hybrid and clean-diesel sport-utility vehicles at the New York International Auto Show, which opens to the public April 10. The show also marks the North American debut of the 2010 E-Class: the automaker’s volume-leading sedan.
The E63 AMG may be the fastest grocery-getter on the planet, with a 6.2-liter engine rated at 518 horsepower. A seven-speed automatic transmission with manual gear selection has a friction multi-clutch set-up that engages gears faster than traditional torque converters.
An attention-assist feature on the new E-Class is similar to technologies used by Volvo and Lexus: it monitors the driver for drowsiness, sending visual and audible signals when necessary. Other new standard safety features include blind spot assist and lane keeping assist.
Engineers have advanced night view assist technology that debuted in the current S-Class. The system on the 2010 E-Class incorporates adaptive high beams that automatically modulate when they sense oncoming traffic.
The ML450 Hybrid is a gasoline-electric version of Mercedes-Benz’s popular sport-utility vehicle. Power comes from a 3.5-liter V6 engine that works in concert with an electric motor to provide V8 engine performance, but with better gas mileage.
The GL350 BlueTEC gets a facelift this year, with a restyled grille, bumpers, wheels and new lights. The clean-diesel engine can tow up to 7500 pounds, and has a cruising range of up to 600 miles at highway speeds.
