First model to come out will be the E-Class convertible.
Mercedes-Benz is working hard on its next E-Class,which is expected to debut as a 2017 model. The first to arrive will surprisinglybe the E-Class convertible, followed by the coupe and then the sedan and wagon. The wholelineup is expected to be larger and lighter than the current generation, sharing many of its underpinningswith the new C-Class, which was introduced earlier this year. It will be lower thanthe current model, making it even sleeker, and the coupe will power on with itscurrent lack of B-pillars.
The entire E-Class lineup will receive a host of new engines,most of them inline, six-cylinder units with gasoline and diesel variants. There willalso be one range-topping V8, which should sport a displacement of 4.0 liters. Three hybrid models are also expected to fit in within the lineup.
