Mercedes Benz - E Class
The "E-Class" name first appeared in the USA with the face-lifted W124 in 1994. The earlier gasoline models of the W123 bore the "E" designator, it stood for Einspritzer (injection, petrol), and Mercedes-Benz continued with this nomenclature with the launch of the W124 in 1985 (1986 USA); in 1994 (USA) a cosmetic face-lift was given to the W124 series along with a new nomenclature of "E-Class" for the entire W124 line. The 300D continued to be the high-mileage option, but V8 engines (available after 1992) brought new-found power to the line. The V8 powered sedans were named 400E/500E from 1992-1993, and E420/E500 after 1993. Likewise, the 3-liter cars (e.g., "300E") where also re-badged to "E320" with the new 3.2 litre engines and naming rationalization of 1994

Mercedes also included a limited production sport version of the W124, created in close cooperation with Porsche. This was called the 500E. The W124 is argued by many to have been the last 'proper' Mercedes-Benz. Daimler Benz bought Chrysler in the 1998 "Merger of Equals". Many have said that the quality was lacking for several years following the merger, but quality is now much improved and at a high standard.

 

The W210 E-Class, launched in 1996, brought the mid-size Mercedes firmly into the upper end of the luxury market. Though six-cylinder models were still offered for a time, the four-light front end and high prices moved the car upmarket. In September 1999 the W210 E-class was facelifted. This included visual, mechanical and quality improvements over the earlier versions.

 

Launched in 2002, the W211 E-Class was a huge improvement over the previous model and was rated as a substantially better vehicle than its long time rival BMW 5 series (which had previously been rated as better in all areas). The W211-based W219 CLS-Class 4-door coupe was introduced in 2005 to attract younger customers. In many Northern-European countries the E-Class is used as a taxi and so the image is not viewed as being exclusive enough along with its traditionally 'old-man's car' image. The W211 E-Class was facelifted in 2006 to freshen up its appearance and primarily to improve quality and technical aspects of the car. The largest engine in the E-class range is the E500 (badged E550 in the U.S.) which had its engine size increased from 5 litres to 5.5 litres in 2006 along with the facelift. There is also an AMG model badged E63 AMG.
