Yes, SL320 is still sold in every where else other than NA. SL280 is the little brother of SL320 with C280 V6. More info can be found on MB's world site.
There really aren't many competitors here with SL-series, and even those that match the price of SL have way more HP under the hood than SL320, therefore, it's logical that MB stop import SL320 to NA.
P.S. Can you believe that German S-Class can be ordered with cloth interior instead of leather?? Heheh, maybe we here in NA are little spoiled huh....
