2019 Mercedes E-Class Lineup Gains Upgraded V6 With 362 HP

The Mercedes E-Class is entering the 2019 model year in the United States with a host of improvements including new technology and an upgraded engine lineup.

First and foremost, there’s a new E450 variant that will be available as a sedan, wagon, coupe and convertible. The model features an upgraded twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 362 hp (270 kW / 367 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. Compared to the E400 it replaces, the E450 packs an additional 33 hp (24 kW / 33 PS) and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm) of torque.

Another new addition for 2019 is the Mercedes-AMG E53. It features a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with EQ Boost technology which enables the model to produce 429 hp (320 kW / 435 PS) and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque. In the E53 Sedan, it enables the all-wheel drive model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

Besides the six-cylinder engines, the 2019 E-Class sedan can be equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 241 hp (179 kW / 244 PS) and 273 lb-ft (369 Nm) of torque.

Additional changes are limited but the E-Class lineup has a new three-spoke multifunction steering wheel wrapped in Nappa leather upholstery. Customers will also be able to order to two new interior trim options.

Other updates include newly available packages on the E-Class sedan as well as a new 19-inch AMG wheel design. Mercedes also said the 2019 E-Class lineup will have “enhanced safety systems” and “route-based speed adaptation which uses a substantially broader scope of map and navigation data to more safety navigate different driving roads and situations.”

The 2019 Mercedes E-Class family will go on sale this fall and pricing will be announced closer to launch.

    They have had it for many years now!

    You state in the title and in the article that this is a V6, and while that was true of their cars for some time now, I believe the new 3.0L turbo six cylinder cars are all *inline* six cylinders again.

    • Mike Gauthier

      They’re still switching over to inline sixes – so the E53 has one but the E450 doesn’t

      • eb110americana

        Yeah, I think you’re right. I was looking at their page and it seems there are number of lesser 3.0L turbo V6s.

  • Ermal Morina

    You’d have to be stupid to get the V6 over the new inline 6.I don’t even know why they’re selling the V6.
    The in-6 is absolutely marvelous
