LAS VEGAS -- Mercedes-Benz has priced its 2010 E-class sedan $4,600 below the current model.
"We are continuing the strategy we started with the new C class two years ago by pricing close to actual transaction prices," Ernst Lieb, CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA, said at a press event here.
The base price of the 2010 E350 rear-drive sedan with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine is $49,475. The current E350 sedan starts at $54,075. The prices include shipping. The 2010 version, which goes on sale next month, includes features not available on the current S class, said Bernhard Glaser, general manager of product management for Mercedes-Benz USA.
The 2010 E550 with a V-8 5.5-liter engine will start at $57,175. Four-wheel-drive versions of the E350 and E550 will cost an extra $2,500.
