Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain Wagon Confirmed For North America

Looking to battle the Audi A6 allroad, which is also new to Canada and the U.S.


  • Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain wagon will go on sale in North America for the first time
  • Scheduled to arrive in the fall of 2020
  • All-Terrain variant boasts a more rugged appearance with extra ground clearance and body cladding

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the company’s best-selling nameplate in history, with over 14 million units sold since 1946. The current-generation sedan and wagon are just as successful, having found 1.2 million homes so far. And now, big news for long-roof car fans: U.S. and Canadian markets will now get the E-Class All-Terrain Wagon variant.

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Revealed

Introduced in 2017, the All-Terrain Wagon boasts a more rugged appearance, rivalling models such as the Audi A6 allroad, the Volvo S90 Cross Country (which is no longer available in our market) and, to a certain degree, ritzier versions of the Subaru Outback.

It stands out with increased ground clearance, compliments of Mercedes-Benz’s AIR BODY CONTROL multi-chamber pneumatic suspension. It also wears the twin-louvre grille that’s usually found on the company’s SUVs, in addition to distinctive bumpers and bodyside cladding around the wheel arches for a more robust look. Some specific interior details can be found in the All-Terrain Wagon’s cockpit as well.

No confirmation on what powertrain will equip the high-riding E-Class Estate, but we’re assuming it will be the twin-turbo, 3.0-litre inline-six with EQ Boost assist that has just been announced for the rest of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup. It’s mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission which now integrates the starter-generator motor, and it produces 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, although the hybrid system temporarily adds 21 hp and 184 pound-feet of torque to the party.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain wagon could also receive the new turbocharged, 2.0-litre four that also benefits from EQ Boost, producing 268 horsepower along with the hybrid system’s extra 20 hp and 133 lb-ft. A plug-in hybrid variant will also make its way to North America, although details have yet to be announced.

Other changes for 2021 include a new steering wheel, the brand’s latest iteration of the MBUX infotainment system, dual 12.3-inch screens, ENERGIZING comfort control and a full battalion of advanced safety features.

There are still a lot of details to be sorted out, including price, but the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain Wagon should arrive in the fall.
