2014 Mercedes E250 BluTech – 45 MPG Highway

Looking for that classic E-Class experience? The 2014 E250 delivers with 45MPG Highway and 28 MPG city, all while delivering a stout 369 Ft. Lbs. of Torque.

The 2014 model lineup for the E-Class will include a Diesel version. Yes, that is the E250 BluTech. This model will feature a 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine that will produce 195 BHP. Mated to the seven-speed 4Matic automatic transmission, it is designed to offer efficiency with excellent driving dynamics.

The engine should sound very sweet. According to the Mercedes-Benz press release, “two Lanchester balance shafts spin at twice crankshaft speed in sophisticated, low-friction roller bearings” to smooth out the 4 cylinders inherent tendency for vibration. What’s more, the engine will produce  “no turbo lag, fast throttle response, a broad torque curve across the entire engine speed range and noticeably improved performance. What’s more, the 369 lb-ft of torque is readily available at 1,800 rpm.”

Impressive, indeed.
