Denver has some of the most technologically informed buyers in the country and they will appreciate the Mercedes-Benz E350 as the most technologically advanced wagon on the planet. Add in the 4Matic all-wheel drive, and Denver consumers have a wagon that will fit their active lifestyles.
The wagon is available with a Driver Assistance package that adds a blind-spot warning system, adaptive cruise control and a lane-departure warning system. Stand-alone options on the wagon are a panoramic sunroof, infrared night-vision camera, expanded leather upholstery and a multicontour driver seat with massage for those long weekend trips to the mountains.
Outside the E350 wagon with the Sport Package comes with a unique three-bar grille, a lowered sport suspension, AMG-inspired fascia’s and rockers, and perforated front brake discs with MB logo calipers, visible through five-spoke 18-inch AMG wheels.
Inside, it adds black ash wood trim, gets a three-spoke sport steering wheel and column-mounted electric gear selector. The E-class wagon with the Sport Wagon package wears the Ponton-inspired rear-fender contours much better than the four-door. Combined with the five-spoke 18-inch AMG wheels, this E350 wagon drew a surprising amount of compliments.
The E350 wagon comes with a 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a seven-speed automatic and all-wheel drive with a base price of $57,075. The 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 3.5-liter V-6 produces 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 16/23 city/highway mpg for the E350 4MATIC wagon.
The E350 wagon is offered solely with the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. The Mercedes 4MATIC all-wheel drive uses a 4-wheel Electronic Traction System. The system continually redistributes the engines torque to the wheels with the best grip, sometimes that’s only one wheel. The system uses a 45:55 front/rear torque split, which improves traction in snow and ice and ideal for Denver’s snowy climate.
The 2011 E350 4Matic offers more safety features than any wagon. They include advanced antilock brakes and Electronic Stability Program. Active safety systems include Attention Assist drowsiness monitor. Standard passive safety features include nine airbags: dual frontal, driver’s knee-protection, front-passenger side-impact torso, front passenger side-impact pelvis, and full cabin head-protection curtains. With 4Matic all-wheel drive, the 2011 E350 offers all-weather capability for Denver commuters.
