Read All About This Game-Changing Sedan

Enter a new dimension of luxury inside the upcoming 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan! Outfitted with new exterior and interior styling, as well as fresh comfort and technology features, the 2017 E-Class is slated to redefine the luxury segment. Drivers from Wilsonville and Beaverton to Portland are encouraged to look for the new E-Class at Mercedes-Benz of Portland this month!

Suitable For Every Occasion

Motivated by a base 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine, capable of delivering 241-hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, the 2017 E-Class promises power that will only expand with each model. What’s more, the new E-Class features steel-spring suspension, which can be configured with DIRECT CONTROL® Sport or Comfort suspension. The new 9G-TRONIC® automatic transmission features modifiable shift points, thanks to the DYNAMIC SELECT® five-mode drive program. All the while, Crosswind Assist guards against side-blowing winds by allocating torque to the right or left wheels, pulling the E-Class back into alignment with its lane. Whether you’re shopping for a sporty or comfort-based sedan, the new E-Class delivers with trademark mechanical excellence, and improved performance in the form of:

– A hydrodynamic torque converter
– A large range of gear ratios
– Multiple downshifts for quick acceleration
– Reduced engine speed for quiet operation
– Fast, smooth, and almost undetectable gear shifting

Technology That’s Redefining The Impossible

The all-new interior design for the 2017 model year includes more trim styles and MB-Tex/optional leather upholstery color schemes for Portland, Beaverton and Wilsonville drivers to choose from, as well as a cascade of newly standard features. With the new KEYLESS START® system, you can simply jump behind the wheel, push a button to start the engine, and zip away. During nighttime drives, drivers can illuminate the cockpit with one of sixty-four colors, thanks to the ambient interior lighting system. The optional panorama sunroof lets in sunlight and fresh air for both the first and second-row passengers. All the while, the new 12.3-inch COMAND® display is capable of managing:

– Routes and destinations
– Bluetooth®* phone and audio streaming,
– Apple CarPlay®
– Android Auto
– And more!

Your Very Own Co-Pilot

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is anything but ordinary when it comes to occupant protection, with high-tech safety systems guarding you from every angle. While Active Brake Assist works to prevent frontal collisions, the optional rearview camera helps prevent accidents while in reverse. In the event of a side collision, optional PRESAFE® Impulse Side can physically move the driver out of harm’s way with a slight push using an air chamber in the seat bolster. Meanwhile, PRESAFE® Sound stands by, ready to trigger the stapedius reflex in preparation for the high-pressure sound of an impact. To help you avoid accidents and harsh weather, Car-to-X Communication lets you share notifications and warnings with nearby drivers. For the ultimate protection, the E-Class can also be safeguarded with these optional features:

– DRIVE PILOT® with Distance Pilot DISTRONIC®
– Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic
– Remote Parking Pilot
– Evasive Steering Assist
