New nine-speed automatic transmission debuts in the Mercedes-Benz E 350
Stuttgart - The first nine-speed automatic transmission with torque
converter, the 9G-TRONIC for premium vehicles, is celebrating its world
premiere: equipped with the innovative power transmission, the E 350
BlueTEC is set to become one of the most fuel-efficient six-cylinder
diesel models in its class.
Thanks to the high level of efficiency of
the patented transmission design, NEDC fuel consumption in the E-Class
is reduced to 5.3 litres of diesel per 100 km. As is typical of the
brand, the transmission features outstanding comfort and barely
perceptible gear changes. The E 350 BlueTEC featuring the 9G-TRONIC as
standard is available to order with immediate effect. Despite the
extended scope of functions, the pricing for both the Saloon and Estate
models remains unchanged.
