It has an output of 362 bhp and 369 ft lb, with an additional 22 bhp and 184 ft lb available thanks to EQ Boost. The EQ Boost system uses a 48 volt inline starter-generator, which enhances performance and refinement while also reducing fuel consumption.

Replacing the E 350 d, the E 400 d 4MATIC features a 3.0-litre inline diesel engine – codenamed OM656 – which generates 335 bhp hp and 516 ft lb. The Coupé can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 5.1 seconds, while the Cabriolet takes 5.2 seconds. Both have a top speed of 155 mph.
