With increased output of 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, the new 3.0L V6 combines twin turbos and many other advances to lower emissions, fuel consumption, and its 0-60 time to just 5.1 seconds. The rapid-multispark ignition can fire up to four times in a millisecond, while the high-pressure Direct Injection precisely tunes the fuel spray. A lightweight diecast-alloy block, widely variable valve timing, reduced friction, and "on-demand'' ancillary components further boost efficiency.
In any season, on any road, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive adds to your confidence and control. Always engaged and optimizing torque to every wheel, 4MATIC integrates with ESP®, our standard Electronic Stability Program, for maximum effectiveness in corners and slippery conditions. It also incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and responds to ensure torque is sent to the wheels with the best grip, even if that's only one wheel.
Upgraded brake hardware includes perforated front brake discs, grasped by painted calipers featuring "Mercedes-Benz" lettering.
With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly but nearly imperceptibly.
