Lightbulb Report: Mercedes-Benz C-Class diesel coming in 2012

Filed under: Sedan, Etc., Mercedes-Benz, Rumormill, Diesel, Luxury


2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - Click above for high-res image gallery

We've got good news for the oil-burning fans of United States. Car and Driver is reporting that Mercedes-Benz wants to sell eight diesel models in the land of the free by 2014, and one of those will be a C-Class.

Odds are that the vehicle won't show up until 2013, and when it does, it will come packing the Silver Arrow's 2.1-liter turbo diesel mill with 204 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. That same engine is likely to find its way into the nose of the GLK as well, though the pint-sized crossover is expected to show its face sooner than its sedan cousin.

The GLK is likely to hit showrooms in the fall of this year as a 2012 model. Car and Driver says that when it does, it could bring some tasty figures to the table, including a 0-60 time in the seven second range and fuel economy in the high 30s.

Currently, Mercedes-Benz serves up a diesel option in its E, M, GL and R-Class models. The S-Class is set to join that party by the end of 2011.

CAFE standards.

MB has gotten fined over $90 million dollars in the past three years (The 2010 numbers are out yet but it probably isn't too far off from previous years)

Mercedes-Benz pays $28.9m in fines for fuel efficiency crimes

Also customer demand and new trends in consumer behavior have pretty much forced them to changes things (For the better as far as I'm concerned)

I can't wait to test drive a GLK250 CDI when they get here! I want to see what that little engine can do

4 Banger with Electric Assist

"They" (Dr. Z + Co.)were Ballyhooing the Diesel/Electric Hybrid drivetrain for the
GLK whilst it (the GLK) was still in development (3-5 years ago).

[Scary 0-60 times, with 40+ MPG figures.]

That Blue Efficiency ALONE will drag the Baby SUV around almost as fast as an
E class AMG petrol version.

Ahem:
