The brand confirmed that this unique variant of the E-Class should be available to buyers in the first half of 2017. MB intends to attract buyers to the E-Class All-Terrain since conventional estates often give up on challenging terrain. However, their new offering can take up the challenge thanks to greater ground clearance with larger wheels, and the 4MATIC all-wheel drive as a standard. It will have an additional 29mm ride height over the standard E-Class estate, and will also sport an air suspension system with three selectable height levels ranging from zero to 35mm.
Powering the All-Terrain E220d 4MATIC version will be the newly developed 194bhp four-cylinder diesel motor with a nine-speed automatic transmission. MB is expected to also offer a six-cylinder diesel motor at a later point. Visual enhancements in the E-Class All-Terrain include the black cladding on the wheel-wells, bigger tyres and wheels, and updates to the bumpers and grille to make it look more rugged.
