s-class diesel

First Look: 2012 Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTec 4Matic

Mercedes-Benz continues to expand the S-Class family, this time bringing diesel power back to the iconic luxury car. The 3.0-liter oil-burning V-6 produces 240 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque, which goes to all four wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. According to Mercedes, that should be enough power to scoot the big S-Class to 60 miles per hour in about seven seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 130 miles per hour.
