it will gain a combined fuel economy of 53.3 MPG from 51.4 MPG
Mercedes is updating its
with a new nine-speed automatic.
Last weekend, Mercedes-Benz’s German language website configurator revealed that the nine-speed automatic -- known as 9G-Tronic -- will now be standard on the rear-wheel-drive E350 BlueTec. It will replace the seven-speed 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox, which will now be standard equipment on the E220 BlueEfficiency Edition.
While bringing the 9G-Tronic along won't change the E350 BlueTec’s ability to hit 0-62 MPH in 6.6 seconds, it will gain a combined fuel economy [European rating] of 53.3 MPG (from 51.4 MPG with the 7G-Tronic). This is due to a boost in city MPG from 40.9 to 44.1.
The 9G-Tronic also brings reduced average CO2 emissions from 144g/km to 138g/km.
Back in May, Mercedes said it was aiming for
45 MPG highway
on the new 2014 E250 Bluetec 4Matic diesel sedan. Its 2.1-liter, 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine uses twin sequential turbochargers for 195 HP and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Let me warn you ahead of time. While I loved my Chrysler car very much I attempted to have everything regularly on it serviced in an effort to make it last forever. I treated it as if I was going to drive it for 20 years and be in commercials where the car lasted like one of those Mercedes a million miles. After all whats $20.00 here and there instead of a car payment. I even paid to have the timing belt replaced at 100K as per the service manual despite the dealership recommending its not necessary. However nothing in the world of preventative maintenance could prevent transmissions from going. It did last well beyond the average person who experienced a failed transmission but inevitably it will fail. Engine by Mitsubishi still going strong but transmission #3 was close at hand and everything around the engine began failing. Never a drop of oil hit the ground. Oil never ran old or over 3k miles. Trans fluid replaced every 25-30k miles. I did get maybe 6 years of no car payments out of her she paid me back to a degree. I won but wonder how well I could have really done without replacing the transmission twice.
I ultimately had to unload the car because mechanics were making things worse charging me a small fortune to have the same problems in some cases before I left the parking lot. I blame giving her up on the mechanics who just couldn't fix her properly and with work I needed the reliability she once had. I could keep mechanics trying and be unemployed in the process so I had to give her up. I should have put her in the garage and done the work myself. I never beat on her and most of her commute was highway. I miss that car to this day but whenever you buy a Chrysler make sure the transmission is from someone like Mitsubishi.
