The company has so cleaned up the exhaust emissions of its diesel baby, the 2007 Bluetec, Mercedes says you can a white handkerchief over its and it will stay white.

DaimlerChrysler#039;s moniker for its advanced exhaust after-treatment system, its world debut on the 2007 Bluetec. So it#039;s not just a it#039;s the company#039;s way to make the less stinky. And it quashes and for all the outmoded prejudices the American public holds toward engines. Smoke? Gone. A memory. Sluggish acceleration? How zero to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds grab

Perhaps to contrast with the eco-groovy nature, Mercedes hedonistic Las Vegas as the location to let us in its latest diesel wundercar. hundred miles later, we away with a renewed for modern diesel engines.


Mercedes is touting the Bluetec as the only diesel-equipped car available as a 2007 model. EPA emissions standards, known as Bin 8, all 2007 models.

To meet Bin 8 the 2007 Bluetec exhaust consists of three specialized and a particulate filter that nearly every last of smoke. NOx, a persistent of diesel combustion, is controlled by a NOx catalyst and an SCR catalyst. These devices scrub the exhaust squeaky clean, allowing the to be sold Bin 8-compliant.

That turns out to be 45 states. Maine, Massachusetts, New York and leave Bluetec out in the cold for due to their adoption of even stringent Bin 5 standards that effect in the rest of the U.S. in

Meeting Bin 5#039;s tighter NOx requires the injection of a nontoxic commonly known as urea — in Mercedes-speak — into the exhaust A reservoir containing AdBlue require periodic refilling, Mercedes reps say will be during the car#039;s normal Equipped with AdBlue 50-state-legal Bluetec versions of the — as well as R-, ML- and GL-Classes — will be as 2009 models.

In the U.S. the for these high-tech diesels is Low-Sulfur Diesel (ULSD), is much more catalyst-friendly non-ULSD fuel. Bluetecs ULSD, but that won#039;t be of a problem. ULSD is already in Europe, and the EPA mandated that it be in 80 percent of U.S. retail by October 15 of this year. started trickling into lots immediately thereafter.

Diesel dichotomy

Replacing the 3.2-liter diesel in the outgoing CDI, the E320 Bluetec an aluminum-block DOHC 3.0-liter V6. It#039;s also the same engine used in the 2007 CDI and ML320 CDI. This is already available in non-U.S. in 13 different Mercedes and Chrysler including the 300C and Jeep Cherokee and Commander.

Due to packaging this engine has an unusual V angle, so a counterrotating balance is employed to smooth out the power This is one refined, smooth and most people wouldn#039;t realize it was a diesel if they told.

Generating 208 horsepower at rpm, this diesel up 60 hp to the gasoline-powered E350, but that tells part of the story. this is a diesel, so it#039;s got of torque. Oh, Lordy, the torque. to an advanced fuel system and a GT20V variable-geometry turbocharger, the belts out 388 pound-feet of torque 1,600-2,400 rpm. That#039;s a 130 lb-ft more than the and it makes its presence known you plant your right

From a standstill, there#039;s a brief soft spot in the delivery before the turbo meaningful boost, followed by beefy slab of torque hauls the Bluetec forward authority. Mercedes says only 0.1 second off the E350#039;s to 60 mph. Once underway, the smooth corporate seven-speed does a fine job of keeping the in the meaty part of its powerband. To for the diesel#039;s inherently lower-revving — redline is 4,600 rpm — engineers the taller 2.65 final found in the E550 and E63 AMG.

their gentler combustion gasoline engines are typically in operation than diesels. the Bluetec is so completely free of clatter and turbo whistle the only way to tell it doesn#039;t gasoline is to note the glacial of the fuel gauge.

Easy on the

The Bluetec carries a preliminary EPA of 26/37 city/hwy mpg, beats out the E350#039;s 19/26 by a margin and even out-economizes like the Lexus GS 450h. price for the Bluetec is $52,325 destination, which is only more than a similarly E350. Factor in the Bluetec#039;s savings and this premium be offset in about two and a half at today#039;s (low) fuel Not bad, and when fuel climb, the investment pays off Sorry, wagon lovers — the E320 Bluetec will be available in sedan guise, and all-wheel drive will not be

The comparison of the gasoline E350 to the Bluetec draws similar among hybrids, but with a different outcome. For example, the hybrid Lexus GS 450h is at 25/28 city/hwy mpg. It its V6 engine with the $44,865 GS rated at 21/29 mpg. for differences in standard equipment, the commands a premium of $8,565 the GS 350. But since the hybrid saves $150 per year in costs, it will take 57 to recoup the purchase price Use real-world fuel economy and a solely economic argument for for the hybrid gets even

This real-world value is of the reason for Mercedes#039; big diesel although global markets play into the equation. penetration exceeding 60 percent in countries, diesels have presence in Europe#039;s passenger Nevertheless, Mercedes#039; economies of reaped by commonizing hardware European- and U.S.-bound vehicles diesel sticker shock to be

The right choice

For 2007, all models sport mildly styling. It#039;s hard to the changes. Look closely and find a deeper airdam and a new bumper, resulting in a pointier and more pronounced intakes at the The headlights, taillights and rear are new, too. Overall, the remains dignified, if generic the rear. The only way to distinguish a from an E350 (besides the of course) is by its smaller wheels — the rides on 16-inchers with tires instead of 17s with As a result, the Bluetec wears front brakes, the smallest of any model.

In some respects the Mercedes-Benz E320 Bluetec the company#039;s E350 redundant. It a similar driving experience at a price, and in the bargain you get the Bluetec#039;s 700-plus-mile range, and much fuel economy. Neither one is a back-road burner, so if you#039;ve got a craving for an E-Class and live in the state, we say skip the E350 in favor of the Bluetec. By nearly any the Bluetec acquits itself as the E-Class of choice.
