When the all-new Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan unveiled last year, the only accessible model was of the E-class, which is E300 with the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four. The said model was followed by the V6-powered E400 wagon and the powerful E43 and E63 AMG twins as well as coupe and convertible options. Later this summer, Mercedes-Benz E400 4Matic sedan will finally hit the shelves, continuing to fill out the open Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup.

Like the E400 wagon, the Mercedes-Benz E400 sedan gets a detuned version of the E43's twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. Power will be sent to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic. There's no rear-drive version in the car, and Mercedes doesn't offer a manual transmission on any U.S.-bound car. Yet, with 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque, it is expected to make most owners happy with the powertrain, Autoblog reported.

As peppy as the standard four-cylinder E300 may be, the Mercedes-Benz E400 is sure to run circles around it. In terms of sound, this car is a hell of a lot better, too. Performance numbers haven't been launched in this car, but it is expected a sub-5-second 0-60 mph run. The heavier Mercedes-Benz E400 wagon will hit 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds.

Currently, the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine variant is available on the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E400, which is rated at 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. This engine offers confident power in any situation and available on either the coupe or convertible body style of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as reported by mb-kc.

Pricing for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Sedan hasn't been announced yet, but $62,000 is speculated by several publications. The E300 sedan starts at $53,945 while the E400 wagon comes for $64,045. In addition to the E400 sedan, other 2018 E-Class variants are going to include the E400 coupe and cabriolet and the 603 horsepower E63 S Wagon.
