I'm guessing low to mid $60K's, seeing as how the E43 is $71K.

Should be around $59,900, about $2K less than the wagon. Probably will have the same P1,P2,P3 option scheme. Most likely no standard P1, widescreen cluster and air body control as in the E43.

This is a good move for MBUSA. Especially as there is no longer an E250 diesel, the E300 takes the place as the line's smaller engine output choice.

You folks will like the E400; power is almost instantaneous, and a lot smoother than the inline 4.

I haven't experienced any roughness from the 4 cylinder. Virtually silent inside the car with the Acoustic Package. The V6 will shine at highway speeds but the 4 cylinder is more than adequate for speeds under 70 mph. My highway mileage is averaging around 34mpg. Overall mpg over 9k miles is 28.4 so far.

Strange to see MBUSA offering the E400 together with the E43, I expected them to drop the E43 and bring on the new E50 AMG

Totally agree with you; but you'll feel the difference between the two when passing that 18 wheeler on the highway.

Try passing cars going uphill at 80mph, the e350 V6 did it with ease. The e300 screams at you.

Really? Passing cars at 80mph up hill? I'm not that aggressive a driver. So far, the E300 has been more than adequate for my moderate driving style both in suburban roads and on the interstate. I haven't noticed any engine screaming, but I do have the acoustic package installed. Remind me to try to pass a car at 80 mph when I get my E63S. Guaranteed it will be screaming as well and I'll be smiling all of the way. 😀

The Acoustic package really does quiet down the car, but I did not have the option of getting at the time of delivery. In California we have alot of hills and mountains if you are driving to Vegas or San Fran and the passing power in those hills was a pleasure to have with the V6 as you could pass without drama hitting 100+. Lets not forget these cars are made to go fast and people do so on the autobahn.

I was on the highway this morning, and when I tried passing a few 18 wheelers from 50mph to 90mph, the power was instant, and it was so effortless and quiet - and I don't have the acoustic package.

There are several acceleration flat spots. They are especially noticeable when changing gears.

Getting the V6 for the sound of the engine and for the better auto start/stop might be worth it. However, the power argument isn't there for **most** people. the 300 is really good enough. We have just been spoiled.

I like it. its fate that my last attempt to buy a MB was jacked up. I wish they would update the website so I can build an 18 and buy it.

The MBUSA website, especially the "Build" feature is always behind the times and is absolute CRAP compared to other MB sites around the world. They need to fire their website people and get a new crew in there.

Since when is good enough ok for a $60-70,000 Mercedes? The rationalization on this site to accept a 240hp four is mind blowing. I guarantee you there are now tens of thousands of e300 owners out there with massive buyers remorse. Did the Mercedes demographic leap to octogenarians? Really pathetic. Regards. Ned.

IIRC my '59 300SL had about the same power as today's E300.

Back in those days the Euro sports cars had very little power, but could outrun any Detroit iron on a winding road. It was all about handling, not straight line performance.

My favorite, a 1958 Lotus Elite, had less than 100 HP in a 1.2 liter engine. It could out maneuver any Detroit iron as well.

When I purchased my E500 in 2003, the HP of the E320 was 221 matched with a 5 speed transmission. The car was a slug. Not sure I remember any comments about the lack of power at that time. The 0-60 times were 7.6 sec.

That was then, this is now. I owned a 2000 e320, it did 0-60 in 7.5. I bought a 2001 e55 the following year. Regards. Ned.

We are EXTREMELY fortunate to live and buy cars in the United States. I'm from Thailand, and we have excise taxes on not only the price of the car, but on engine size and emission rate.

So if I was getting my car there, it would be a E220d Dynamic AMG Estate, with the new 1950cc diesel engine. That car costs THB 4,750,000 or about USD 140,000.

So from that perspective, the 1950cc E300 is a pretty damn good value.

Why you need website when Dealer Ordering Guide is available for 2018. Please let me know if you want me to send you a copy.
MBUSA is generic on what you can get anyway. If you want to order a car you sit down at the store and you do it with DOG , Netstar and a salesmen that knows what he's doing and how the specs works. Some time is good to have advice from people who've seen quite a few specs combination.
