2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class: High-Tech, Higher Price

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan

Mercedes-Benz announced a raft of updates for the 2021 E-Class back in March: new exterior styling, more driver-assist technology, more in-cabin tech and the electrification of some of its powertrains. The German automaker even gave the U.S. a new-to-us All Terrain wagon for 2021, a challenger for the Audi Allroad wagon. Now, six months later, we have an idea of what the new E-Class will cost in its various forms: more, but not as much as you may have thought.

The E-Class is arguably Mercedes’ most versatile vehicle in the U.S., available in sedan, coupe, cabriolet and wagon body styles. High-performance AMG versions of the sedan and wagon are also available, as are additional — and less-hardcore —  AMG variants of the sedan, coupe and cabriolet. That diversity also shows in the E-Class’ range of prices, starting at just more than $55,000 for the base E350 sedan and nearly doubling for the AMG E63 S sedan. The AMG E63 S wagon is more than double the base sedan, but the only other wagon for 2021 is the All Terrain, leaving us without a similar wagon comparison.

Engine options range from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in the E350 to a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with a mild-hybrid system in the E450. AMG E53 models use the turbo six-cylinder as well (with extra tuning for added performance), while the AMG E63 S models are powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8. The sole transmission is a nine-speed automatic, though AMG models get specially tuned versions.
