We’ve already posted some teaser images of the all-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS (though in that post we were mistaken in believing it was a 2018 model), but now we have even better information. The new Mercedes-Benz CLS sporty four-door coupe is adding new powertain advantages, as well as elite comfort features borrowed from the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class flagship. Get details on the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS release date and new advantages below.
2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS Release Date
We have early information about the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS450 and CLS450 4MATIC® (which will feature responsive Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® all-wheel drive*). These models should be available by the fall of 2018, if not slightly before. Contact a member of the Star Motor Cars sales team to get personalized updates about this vehicle’s likely arrival date in Houston TX.
Some general highlights of this model include new five-passenger seating (up from four seats in previous models).
Powertrain Electrification Changes
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 and CLS450 4MATIC®will come equipped with a new inline six-cylinder engine with integrated electrification. While the traditional gasoline aspects of this engine will be able to deliver 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, drivers will be able to take advantage of an additional 21 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque in short bursts thanks to the EQ Boost electric motor. This 48-volt onboard electrical system delivers brief enhancements to acceleration, allows limited combustion-free “sailing” driving possible, and enables high-efficiency recuperation to fuel the battery. This model should be able to burn from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.8 second with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive.
