The Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTEC 4MATIC will be shown at Detroit Motor Show.
A brand new all-wheel drive diesel sedan is about to be launched on the U.S. market in the form of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTEC 4MATIC, which will be making its debut next week at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. It’s been 15 years since a diesel was offered in the S-Class flagship sedan in the U.S. and with fuel prices going the way they are, it couldn’t come sooner.
Under the hood lies Mercedes-Benz’s now familiar 3.5-liter BlueTEC V-6 turbodiesel engine, which already appears in BlueTEC editions of the ML- and GL-Class SUVs. Peak output stands at 210 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
