It's big. It has no star standing on the hood. It's made in Alabama....
What a great time to roll out the largest mercedes passenger vehicle ever...
Just when record gasoline prices continue to spike. Brilliant.
Annoying link. look for the blue boxed area to the right of screen...
Have you forgotten about the diesel motors? Mercedes-Benz promises to
have the new 4-litre diesel V8 motors for US market next year in
addition to its successful 3,2-litre diesel V6 motors. The E320 CDI has
been a runaway success with all of 5.000 units sold in six months. 2006
is the first year for the federally compulsory 'clean diesel'. Too bad
about California's CARB being too stifling and rigid with the diesel

Yes, built in Alabama, I appreciate the design, it could be a suitable
replacement for our E500T, but, will it be as well built as a German car and
last as long. I am not convinced that it is not essentially a Chrysler with
a star in the grill. There have been serious quality issues with the M
class. Will the R-class be better engineered and built?
Ooh, be still my heart! Cup holders, "better" fuel economy with no
clue what that means (how can they not know?), what a salesman! I'll
stick with my E320 wagon, thanks, it holds seven, has six cupholders,
and is paid for! 8*)
