Does Mercedes-Benz Still Make Wagons?
Station wagons have mostly gone by the wayside in the US. The beloved body style was replaced by the SUV, which is itself in battle for dominance with the crossover. Perhaps we’ll come full circle one day, with crossovers being replaced by station wagons. There are still those among us that love wagons though, with their sedan-like handling and fuel economy coupled with the cargo capacity of the SUV or crossover. With Mercedes being one of the most prominent luxury automobile brands with a history of great wagons (look at the Europe-only CLS 63 AMG® Shooting Brake or the AMG® Hammer Wagon), many enthusiasts may be wondering if Mercedes still makes anything for the wagon market.
So, does Mercedes make a wagon anymore?
Mercedes 2019/2020 Wagon Lineup
Mercedes technically only has one 2019 wagon offering for US consumers, but there is an AMG® variant that distinguishes itself enough that most consider it a completely different model:
- E 450 4MATIC® Wagon
- AMG® E 63 S Wagon
Mercedes has announced the return of the E 450 4MATIC® Wagon for 2020. We hope that it gets the AMG® treatment again in 2020 as well.
E 450 4MATIC® Wagon
Upgraded from 2018 E 400 Wagon, the 2019 E 450 has a 3.0L 362-horsepower twin-turbo V6 which puts out 33 more ponies and 15 more lb-ft of torque (up to 369 lb-ft from the previous year’s 354 lb-ft). It also has a hybrid powertrain, with a 48-volt battery that is charged while coasting and during braking. The battery feeds the starter-alternator, which provides that low-speed oomph before the turbos kick in.
Did we mention that the 4MATIC® means that the E 450 Wagon is AWD?
AMG® E 63 S Wagon
603 horsepower. 627 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds. That’s only half a second slower than the 2.9-second 0-60 of the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador, Porsche 911 Turbo S, or Ferrari F12 TdF. And the AMG® E 63 S Wagon is about $100,000 cheaper than the cheapest of those three.
Find us an SUV or crossover that can perform almost as well as an exotic performance car for half—or even a quarter—of the price. We’ll wait.
