Mercedes-Benz S350 CDI will be put on sale in US
Mercedes-Benz S350 CDI will be now available for sale in US. The flagship sedan is powered by 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 diesel engine with 241 hp and 429 lb-ft (580Nm) of torque.
The US version is slightly more powerful than the European one, which produces 235hp and 398 lb-ft. Because of this reason you wont be able to purchase the mighty S420 CDI version in United States. Mercedes-Benz S350 CDI will feature AdBlue injection technology to cleanse its exhaust system while the power will be delivered through the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.
The fuel consumption is something that doesn't bother US citizens, but with the amazing 37mpg, the S-class will capture their attention.
Futhermore, CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA Mr. Ernst Lieb announced that a diesel version of the E-class will be available in the U.S., perhaps E320 CDI model.
Mercedes-Benz are working hard to take bigger place at the U.S. market. The releasing of S350 CDI and in the future of E320 CDI is a smart move and the sales will increase dramatically.
