Mercedes-Benz E-Class (2000)

by Russ

The face is familiar, but so slightly changed. In a mid- cycle freshening, Mercedes-Benz’s E-Class sedans and wagon a large number of enhancements for the model year. The front is subtly lower. Inside, new and detail improvements increase and usefulness. Highlighting mechanical is the adoption of the Touch Shift shifting system into all cars.

The 2000 E-Class is comprised of the E320 sedan and E430 sedan, and the ultra flagship E55 sedan. All use engines Mercedes-Benz’s 90-degree vee family, a 3.2-liter, 221-horsepower V6 in the 320, a 275-hp V8 in the 430, and an AMG-tuned 5.5-liter V8 in the E55. All E320 and models are now available with the all-wheel drive system for all-weather ability.

Compared to the 3.2-liter inline six in the E320, the current E320’s V6 has more low and mid-rpm torque, for acceleration from common and highway speeds. Up to 60 mph or so, it feels as strong as the E430’s V8. The E430’s V8 offers refined luxury and high- speed cruising And, if that V8 isn’t enough, there is the E55.

No automobile combines performance and quite like the E55. a land-bound executive jet, and a example of the iron fist in a glove school of performance is practically a German exclusive. it has the sound and power of an American car from the 1960s, it has the handling of a sports car. It is a five-passenger sedan with the performance of a sports car. The E55 is produced in with the noted German company AMG, which fame in the late 1980s cars like the E-Class- Hammer. AMG is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aftermarket tuner cars are for extreme performance, but that can be at the of comfort and practicality. Not the E55. It nothing. Nor, for that do any of the other E-Class cars.

APPEARANCE: The front styling of the E-Class inspired the CLK coupe, has, in turn, influenced the E-Class in an interesting feedback The difference is not immediately consciously but it is real. The front end is just an inch lower than The headlights, grille, front and hood are all restyled and lowered of this. There are now four bars in the grille instead of At the rear, new taillights have a CLK-like look. The result is a sportier appearance. Befitting its nature, the E55 has no flagrant boy-racer or wing. It differs from E- Class sedans in the AMG-styled bumper fascia and rocker and staggered-size alloy wheels.

COMFORT: Velvet glove one: There is no austerity of the E55, or in any other new E-Class For all, materials have upgraded, and the power tilt-and-telescope steering wheel now has audio and phone controls. There is a new cluster, which further the driving experience. The E55 does unique power-adjustable, heated buckets as standard equipment. The seat is roomy and has a full of storage spaces and comfort If not S-Class first class, at least business class in My test car had a black and maroon color scheme. In the wrong that’s an invitation to tackiness. the Mercedes and AMG styling teams are not the hands.

SAFETY: All 2000 Mercedes-Benz cars have a steel- passenger cabin with and rear crumple zones, brakes, dual front and side airbags, and side airbags for head protection. The system deactivates the front airbag in the presence of a special seat, and the ESP electronic stability system and Brake Assist the driver to stay in control in situations.

ROADABILITY: Velvet part two: Despite the profile tires — ZR18 front, 275/35 rear — and larger bars than are found on E-Class cars, the E55 does not a harsh, uncomfortable ride. it is firmer than its brethern, the is comfortably compliant. There is body roll and tremendous as expected given the tire and upgrades. The E55 is not just a high-speed cruiser, it is also excellent on the of roads more commonly with two-seat sports and motorcycles than four- luxury sedans.

PERFORMANCE: Here’s where the fist makes itself With a maximum of 349 horsepower and 391 of torque from the 5.5-liter V8, the E55 can its own against nearly anything on wheels. When driving, is always a sense of immense but power from the engine. The V8 rumble is not out of place. The E55 is a very hot rod. The five-speed automatic features adaptive logic for optimum automatic performance and Shift manual shifting. The amount of torque available at any speed means that is rarely necessary.

CONCLUSIONS: The Mercedes-Benz E55 combines and performance like nothing
