2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon

Mercedes-Benz Reveals 2017 E-Class Wagon: What Comes Standard?

With Mercedes-Benz unveiling the new E-Class sedan earlier this year in Detroit, we knew that it wouldn't be long before we saw the wagon, coupe, and convertible. Today, we got to see one of those variants.

Today, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the 2017 E-Class. Like the sedan, the E-Class wagon has the same sleek shape and smooth lines. The wagon uses the same 115.7-inch wheelbase as the sedan, but it will offer more interior space thanks to a longer roof. We don't have any numbers for cargo space, but it will likely be the same as the current model (57.4 cubic feet)

First question. Is it coming to the U.S.?

Yes. Like the current E-Class wagon, Mercedes will only offer one powertrain configuration; a 3.0L Biturbo V6 engine producing 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and 4Matic all-wheel drive.

What comes standard?

For starters, the E-Class will offer three rows of seating - the third-row is a rear facing seat that is best reserved for small kids. The rear seats can recline to provide either more cargo space or comfort for passengers. A power tailgate and rear air suspension finish off the feature list.

Is there anything we're missing out?

We won't be getting the AMG E43 wagon with its 396 horsepower Biturbo V6. But don't fret, there is likely to be an E63 wagon coming around the corner.

When does it launch? Pricing?

The E-Class wagon will arrive early next year. Pricing will be announced at a later date.
