Under the hood
The heart of the E350 and E550 E-Class coupe consists of an engine driven by plenty of horses – a generous 302 hp/273 lb-ft torque in the E350’s V-6, and a steroidal bi-turbo V-8 engine in the E550 that kicks up 402 hp/443 lb-ft torque for powerful 0 to 60 acceleration rates of 6.2 and 5.2 seconds, respectively.

Elegant efficiency
The elegant efficiency of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class coupe begins before you ever hit the road with optional keyless start and entry. Then you’re ready to ease into the hand-stitched leather, Active Ventilated, heated, 14-way power adjusting sport seats with 4-way lumbar support. As you begin your journey, the COMMAND computer system awaits your input for musical selections from your iPod, MP3 player, computer, wireless Bluetooth audio streaming or personal digital music collection on the Music Register. The realistic, amplified sound emitted by the12-speaker, 610-watt Dolby digital surround sound system sends you happily on your way. As your wheels hit the road, the navigation system will expertly guide you to your destination, and Mercedes-Benz mbrace2 enables you to search the Internet for any needed information.

The thrill of the road
The sweet and responsive engines in both the E350 and E550 emit a satisfying growl at start-up, and Mercedes-Benz smooth ECO Start/Stop technology shuts the engine off at each stop and automatically restarts it when you lift your foot off the brake, reassuring you that you’re burning as little fuel as possible. The 7-speed automatic transmission shifts gears intuitively, and you can effortlessly glide to your destination, unless you decide to push the 2014 E-Class coupe through some hoops using the shift paddles. Manual shifting, combined with a sports-tuned suspension, Mercedes-Benz automatic damping and dial-a-ride Dynamic Handling in Sports mode will allow you to release your driving passion with a good deal of instant gratification.
