2019 E Sedan build dates

Has anyoneís 2019 E Class sedan/saloons been assigned a build date yet? My dealership doesnít seem to know much about it and we havenít had a build date assigned to our E450 yet. Iíve seen that cabriolet and coupes have been built for some people already but havenít heard much about the sedan.

All 213 models built since 01 Jun 19 are 809 (model year 19) cars. However, as alluded to in previous related posts, the pressure on MB is to comply with new WLTP Euro 6d TEMP exhaust emission limits which means that 808 (MY18) cars can't be registered after 01 Sep 18 in adopting countries. Becasue this is affecting all manufacturers and all petrol and diesel models need re-certifying before sale, manufacturers are concentrating on their big volume sellers through test certification (which is National run and maxed out). So for MB in Germany and Europe that means E220d/E400d (which were already certified when released in the new CLS) and 4 cylinder petrol models. Other models will be released to sale when they have been certified; I think that the 450 petrol was only released for sales via German dealers late Jun for delivery from Sep. We don't get this engine in UK so don't know if other countries which do have the order book open yet.

However, you can be assured all 213 and 238 models going down the line since 01 Jun 18 in Stuttgart and Bremen respectively are 809 models.

If we made a 2019 E53 AMG order (USA) what can I ask my dealer to do for updates? In other words, can my dealer tell me where my car is on production line? Can my dealer give me updates on preliminary anticipated manufacturer delivery dates? Also I see on the order guide that warmth and comfort package has delayed delivery, but when making my order my dealer told me I had to have W&C if I wanted Driver Assist package. first, is that right, did I really need W&C to get DA? And if so, then is my E53AMG going to be delayed? My dealer didnt really seem well informed when making my order so Im just wondering what I can do and ask for in order to get better information or to guide my dealer to become more well informed. Thank.

Some E450 sedans have been built and shipped to the US, but no one knows when they'll be certified or released to the dealers.

They can tell you where the car is in the process (built, shipped, arrived at the port, etc.) However, they typically have no idea when you will actually get it because it can be stuck at the port for an unpredictable period of time waiting for certifications, official release, or some modifications that need to be done before it can be delivered. Long waits at the port are particularly common at the beginning of the model year of a new model.

Are you in the US? If so, the W&C package is completely separate from the DA package (and there is no required dependency). Here is an excerpt from the Dealer Order Guide dated 06/07/2018:



Excerpt from W213 MY 2019 E Class Sedan DOG dtd 06/07/2018

Please note that there is a separate DA package (990) for AMG Perf Seats, but it also does not include/require the W&C package.

I don't have much info on delays that may be caused by certain package selection. For the E53, the DOG warns about delayed availability for the AMG Night Package (521) and the AMG LED Crest Projectors (25A), and says there is limited availability of the HUD (463).

Hope this helps.

Thatís interesting since we placed a deposit back in May but my dealership didnít place the order into the system until June and now they have no idea when itíll be approved by MB Canada to be built. I hope thereís no delays since they said when I was placing the order that the luxury suspension might not be available.

I don't know about Canada, but E450 sedans for the US market started production in early June, and a few just arrived in the US or are about to arrive as I mentioned. It may still be a month or two (or more) before customers actually get them, though. Anyway, good luck with your E450. The whole thing is a pretty frustrating process - availability of build slots, availability of options, delays in certification and release, etc. You need a lot of patience. Sometimes the car arrives damaged, or the dealer damages it (happened to me), and you have to start the process again which is extremely frustrating...

I ordered an E450 in mid June for European Delivery and have been promised a delivery (pick up) date of 10/5.

Sorry to hear that happened, that mustíve been frustrating. We usually just purchase whatever is on the dealers lot but a lot of E Classes here arenít well equipped, most usually just have premium package and nothing else. We wanted the designo beige interior since itís around $2400 USD in Canada compared to $4900 in USA and I could only find one vehicle in the whole country with it back in September. It was a 2017 E300 with 1600km on it already and it was a demo vehicle 300km away. The dealership wanted $82,000 for it when a new one retailed with those same specs for $83,000. I told them to bring it down to around $72,000 and they werenít budging and said they were doing me a favour by offering it to me for $79,999. It was on the lot for at least 6 months so I didnít bother buying it from them, and I donít think it has sold yet.

So from this Iím guessing mine will probably be built around late September/October and if thereís no delays hopefully receive it by December. Iíll probably get paint protection done and get winter tires and rims since winter gets pretty bad here in December.

Just my $.02: paint protection unless it is clear vinyl film that is applied is a waste of money: Paint sealers were exposed many years ago to be nothing better than a wax job. Better to just wax your car each spring.. Winter tires with rims makes life a lot easier!

I think there a plate on the door frame on the driver's side that has this info. The VIN decoded should also list this. The Monroney sticker also should list this.

Different countries/territories different rules. The NAS versions have to state the build month on the VIN sticker and they also have a different VIN format from European cars.

The car model year is part of the VIN which you have. Do you really believe that your car is a 2017 model instead of a 2018 model? There is no meaningful difference between cars built in different months as long as they are the same model year.

If you get the data card you will see if it says 807 or 808 and you will know if it's an MY 17 or 18. As said there is no difference between the two unlike 808 to 809.👍

2019 E450 4Matic
This is my first post here. I ordered an E 450 on April 5. I was told the build would be the first week of June. No delivery date indicated. I ordered all the electronic stuff including HUD. Hoping for late August/early September. I was told all USA E450 are 4Matic. Is this true?

From the ordering guide, all 2019 E450 for the US are 4Matic.

Yes - they're all 4MATIC.

Where did you get late August/early September, or are you just estimating?

This is what the dealer has "indicated". I really don't know for sure.

If the build date was early June, then the car should be in the US already or arriving in the next few days. You can ask your dealer about status. If they release it only in late August or in September, your car will be sitting at the port for a month and half or two months.

During the first week of June I emailed the dealer asking for status. She said the car was "in production" and would keep me posted. I am hoping for at least an early Sept delivery so I can drive it on a planned trip late Sept.
