Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach Confirms, Four-Cylinder Will Power Mercedes’ U.S. Car Lines

The new Mercedes-Benz four-cylinder engine will appear first in the C250 sedan and coupe.


September 28, 2011 – Signal Hill, Calif. – Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach is excited to confirm, Mercedes-Benz will debut its new four-cylinder engines now arriving in the United States.

Mercedes has developed a four-cylinder engine that will power the upcoming A-, B- and C-class lineups in the U.S.

“It is always wonderful to see the new technologies that Mercedes-Benz creates,” said Bob Milner, General Manager. “This new engine will have the horsepower of V-6 engine but with four-cylinder fuel economy.”

Ranging from 1.6 to 2.0 liters, the turbocharged gasoline direct-injection engine could offer torque ranging from 185 to 260 pounds-feet, depending on displacement. With help from two fully variable camshaft phases, those torque figures could come on at as low as 1,250 rpm and run at full load up to 5,000 rpm without problems with cooling--impressive for a small-displacement gasoline engine.

The four-cylinder debuts in the United States in the midcycle revision of the C class now arriving at dealerships. The 1.8-liter turbo in the C250 sedan and coupe generates 201 hp at 5,500 rpm and 229 pounds-feet of torque between 2,200 rpm and 4,300 rpm.

The engine family has an aluminum block and head like the four-cylinder currently offered in Mercedes models sold in Europe. It uses a piezo direct injection system from Robert Bosch. The piezo injector is electronically controlled and much faster at regulating fuel delivery compared with traditional solenoid actuation, resulting in a cleaner fuel burn and lower emissions.
