2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - March 10, 2020

Model Preview

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class received a full redesign for the 2017 model year, but it lives in a fast-shifting segment, so another redesign is in order. The redesigned 2021 E-Class will make its way to the U.S. in sedan and wagon form and for the first time with an electrified powertrain option.

Even in generational redesigns, Mercedes-Benz is not big on clean-sheet reworks. Instead, its redesigns tend to be more evolutionary. Overall, the 2021 E-Class sees somewhat minor changes including a wider grille and headlights, and a full-length front-bumper lower intake. Around back it gains sleeker taillights akin to its wagon sibling, a flatter trunk lid, and a revised rear bumper.

On the inside, the 2021 E-Class will gain two 12.3-inch screens—one for the gauges and one for the infotainment system. It’ll also gain a new steering wheel with touch-sensitive controls, intuitive gesture control, an air-quality indicator, the MBUX infotainment system with “Hey Mercedes,” and more.

Aside from the new-to-the-U.S. plug-in hybrid motor, E 450 models will gain a new 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder turbo engine rated at 362 horsepower. AMG models will also have a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder turbo but it will be good for 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque.

The current E-Class is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ thanks to its “Good” crash test scores across the board, “Good” optional headlights, and “Superior” standard automatic emergency braking. Mercedes announced the new-generation E-Class would gain more driver-assistive features, including adaptive cruise with route-based speed adjustment, traffic assist, active steering assist, cross-traffic automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring with exit alert, and more.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will go on-sale in the U.S. in the fall.

Pricing is not available yet, but we expect at least a small increase relative to the current E-Class lineup, which ranges from $55,045 to $112,745 (destination fees included).

This midsize luxury rig will compete with the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Volvo S90.
