Maybe essentially the most shocking bit is that the luxury gardener model of the E-Class wagon carries on, a brand new model making its strategy to the newest E for subsequent yr, conserving the identify E 450 4Matic All-Terrain Wagon. We have been advised the E-Class wagon stays in circulation in Europe till 2023, and though a sure New-England-ish nook of this nation has had an especial affinity for Mercedes wagons, we’re shocked this $72,000 buying cart made the minimize.
The EPA paperwork uncared for to say the AMG E 63 Wagon, the model that swaps further cladding for further cojones. Ought to that be penciled in for the 2025 mannequin yr, rumors say we’ll get round 700 horsepower and 884 pound-feet of torque from an inline-six PHEV powertrain.
