2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Starts From $54,250 in USA

2021 E-Class adds 48V mild hybrid systems, new tech, new wagon

  • New styling, latest MBUX infotainment

  • All-Terrain joins wagon lineup


The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class is nearly here, with pricing for the heavily redesigned and heavily teched executive sedan starting from $55,300 including destination. The car, which also gets new powertrains, should hit dealers by end of year.

With its midcycle refresh, Mercedes-Benz redid the nose and tail, flipping the grille as they’ve done recently with other models, but they’ve also added touch-sensitive steering wheels, a standard digital dash, and the latest MBUX infotainment. All packaged with a new inline-six behind the pointed star of E 450 models.

The new E will also get a new version of safety systems including exit warning assist protection when you’re getting out, longer waits before it won’t restart the adaptive cruise in traffic, and the awkwardly named End-of-Traffic-Jam Assist, which will let you know that you’re coming up on a tailback before you’re noticed it. A head-up display is on offer as is augmented reality navigation.

New in the E 450 is a 3.0L inline-six making 362 hp and 369 lb-ft, the engine augmented with Merc’s 48V EQ Boost for another 21 hp and 184 lb-ft. The E-Class All-Terrain is also new to the US market, offering a look and capability much like Audi’s Allroad or Volvo’s Cross Country models. If you want a wagon without the cladding, you’ll need to step up to the AMG E63 S wagon, which sticks around for at least another year.

All AMG cars get adaptive damping air suspension which has been revised with a three-chamber system for improved response and comfort. The cars also add surround-view camera as standard.
