About Mercedes-Benz E350
Pertaining to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup, which is long a favorite of shoppers in the market for a mid-size luxury car, Mercedes-Benz E350 has been built by a German multinational automotive corporation Daimler AG between 2006 and 2016 as an executive car. Originally introduced as the third-generation E-Class (W211), E350 is also the successor to the Mercedes-Benz W210. Competing against the Cadillac XTS, Volvo V90 and Lincoln Continental, E350 has chosen as the winner in the Executive Car category and has received Car of the Year awards. But after being manufactured for only two generations, the E350 was replaced by the Mercedes-Benz W213.
The first-generation Mercedes-Benz E350 (W211) was produced from 2006 through 2008 and debuted as an updated W211 at the 2006 New York International Auto Show for the 2007 model year. It was offered in only one body style, 4-door sedan but came in base E350 and E350 4Matic. During this generation, Mercedes-Benz E350 was powered by a 3.5 L V6 rated at 268 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and this engine sent power through 7-speed automatic (7G-Tronic) and 5-speed automatic transmissions to rear wheels or four wheels. The more recent E350 (W212) was introduced at the 2010 North American International Auto Show for North American market and went on sale in May 2010. Still powered by the 3.5 L V6 producing 268 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, E350's rear wheels and four wheels were driven by 7G-Tronic Plus and 9G-Tronic automatic transmissions.
