"As a package, Mercedes' bread and butter model is as satisfying as ever." - Motortrend

The 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine powers the E350 models of the E-Class. The E450 4Matic, priced at $62,000, gets a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine with an EQ boost. Both engines get a 9-speed automatic transmission and the 350 gets the option of all-wheel-drive, standard on the E450.

The interior and exterior did get a refreshment on the inside with a big update in the technology featuring the latest MBUX system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and also navigation fitted in as standard. The safety features have increased with the additional blind spot monitoring system, crosswind assist and lane keep assist.

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Buying Advice

Priced at $62,000, the Mercedes-Benz E450 4Matic is the E-class sedan to get. We say this as this comes with an AMG engine in a non-AMG car. The 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine with the EQ boost, the same engine as found in the previous generation Mercedes-Benz S450 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 53 4-door. Apart from this, the E450 4Matic model offers better mpg figures in the city and a bigger fuel tank.

"If you've ever desired an AMG model but didn't want to pay extra, then you're in luck" - Carbuzz

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with two engines depending on the trim. The E350 models (starting MSRP $54,250) get a 2.0 liter turbocharged inline-4 which makes 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The E450 models get a 3.0 liter turbocharged inline-6 with a 48-volt EQ system, combined making 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. This does not make the E450 a hybrid or PHEV as Mercedes-Benz claims.

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan engine

Both power units are paired to a 9-speed Dynamic Select transmission which gives power to the rear wheels in the base E350, and all the wheels in the E350 4Matic and E450 4Matic, hence its name. The transmission comes with four modes - Eco, Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ and also a custom one.
