2008 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6

2008 4dr Sedan 382-horsepower 5.5L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The most comfortable seats among all its rivals including Lexus, Jaguar, BMW, Audi, and Infiniti. Plenty of adjustments in the seat and the telescoping steering wheel. Plenty of front seat room for people 6 foot tall and more. Provides ample support. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2008 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Driving 4-5 hours in a row left no fatigue or discomfort in my back or legs. The seats are just firm enough but very supportive where they need to be. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
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

2008 4dr Sedan 382-horsepower 5.5L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The back seat is very comfortable and provides good headroom and seating support. They fold down to provide additional storage room. My complaint is that it is not S class roomy in the back. Leg and foot room can be limited if sitting behind a tall driver see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan turbocharged 210hp 3.0L V6 Diesel
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The combination of the diesel and 7 speed transmission makes for a great, flexible and smith drive train with power whenever you need it. Will never purchase a gas engine again. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
2008 4dr Sedan 382-horsepower 5.5L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
What is there not to like about 382 HP, 390ft/lbs of torque, 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds and the quarter mile in 13.3 seconds traveling at 105 mph. These numbers rival the Corvettes built only a few years ago and this is a luxury 4 door sedan! see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review
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

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
