S-Class historical overview

In Mercedes-Benz history, the S-Class was used colloquially, referring to the S which designated most of the six-cylinder powered vehicles in the lineup (but not the luxurious 600 limousine). A 1950s W128 a 220SE A 1950s W128 a 220SE

In some early as in the Ponton model, the S was applied to requiring premium fuel in Germany) due to the higher compression and output of the company’s top-of-the-line These six-cylinder engines available in the W180/128 chassis Mercedes’ first without a frame, using a unitized construction. This line was in the mid-to-late 1950s, and came to the 220a, 219 (W105), 220S, and (sedan, coupe, and convertible) Both Ponton models produced through the 1950s. A 230S Fintail A W111 Fintail

In 1959, the Ponton was replaced by the new 220Sb with (standard body) with with the different six-cylinder of the W111 mainly differing the smaller 4-cylinder variant by a different length of the front, and the of chrome applied.

With Fintails being and dropped in favor of a look to the 600, the updated and larger lines were introduced, included the 250S, 250SE, and 300SEL (long wheelbase) The W108/109 lines, which supplanted the W111 lines, not available with 4-cylinder and thus established the distinct market position which to the present day. Since the of the W111 300SEL, each of the S-Class has included short and wheelbase models, with the models (such as the W109) being the most luxurious, and well-equipped, with the V8-powered 6.3 marking the highlight.

As in special models, the real was indicated as e.g. 190E in order to distinguish it from the 260E, the mid-size five-door and the S-Class 260SE using the six-cylinder. In 1994, when the was introduced as C-Class, the traditional convention (numbers, plus was reversed, with a leading identifying the line (currently, A, B, C, E, G, M, R, S, V are in From then on, the long-wheelbase (formerly SEL) and the regular models (formerly SE) are both with the prefix of S regardless of For example, both 500SEL and are now labeled as S500, with injection being standard by now
