YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Very comfortable, firm seating,even after very long drives. The combination of lumbar support and heat leaves me refreshed after eight- and nine-hour drives. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2007 4dr Sedan 507-horsepower 6.2L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Lots of room and has adjustments on multicontour seats. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2006 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I could fall asleep in this thing. Great seat heaters and adjustability. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2005 4dr Sedan 302-horsepower 5.0L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The seat room for front passengers is excellent, and there is still enough room for rear passengers. We had an Acura TL before, and it was far less roomy than the E500. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Great new V6. Fantastic 7-speed automatic shifts when and as it should. Returns very good economy: low 20s in town; high 20s on the highway. Very linear acceleration, which cannot be had in peaky, turbocharged, competitors. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 208hp 3.0L V6 Diesel
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Fantastic performance and economy. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2007 4dr Sedan 507-horsepower 6.2L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
It is extremely fast and spirited. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2007 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
268 German horsepower are as fast as 290 Lexus V8 power in my prior LS 400. The 5 speed automatic selects the proper gear in every case and the shifts are smooth. Quick kickdown for passing on two lane roads. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2007 4dr Sedan 382-horsepower 5.5L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
E550 with 382HP V8 has tremendous power and torque anywhere and anytime. Effortless and smooth. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review

2005 4dr Sedan 302-horsepower 5.0L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Very strong performance for a four door vehicle this size. If you turn off the stability and traction control, it will smoke the tires like a muscle car! It regularly achieves 27 mpg on the highway. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2005 4dr Sedan supercharged 469hp 5.4L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
500+ horsepower is incredible. V8 Kompressor (Supercharger) is king of the road (well, except for their V12 Bi-Turbo!!) see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2005 4dr Sedan supercharged 469hp 5.4L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD

YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The steering wheel DOES NOT come back on center after a slow turn. You have to physically turn the wheel back. Something you have to get used to. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
