Lightbulb Detroit 2011: 2012 Mercedes-Benz S350 Bluetec is one torque-tastic S-Class

During the festivities here at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz quietly rolled out the 2012 S350 Bluetec, a diesel-powered S-Class that's destined for consumption here in the United States. The big news is that M-B will now offer the only diesel-powered flagship luxury sedan here in the States - Audi, BMW and Jaguar don't offer an oil-burning version of their high-rollers here in the U.S.

Mercedes-Benz neglected to release any technical specifications about the new S350 Bluetec, but as its nomenclature would suggest, it's powered by the same 3.5-liter Bluetec V6 found in the E-, ML- and GL-Class vehicles. Mercedes has clearly proven that the business case for Bluetec here in the United States is indeed valid, and we'd much rather opt for a diesel S-Class as opposed to the S400 Hybrid.

Wonder when MB will get around to importing to the U.S., the 2011-2012 E320 Bluetec?
