2008 Mercedes C-Class
Mercedes will unveil the C-Class in 2008 in two distinct lines, a comfort-oriented series and a more sporting version with stiffer suspension, different seating and a body kit.
For the U.S., expect the engine range to be the C280 V-6 (228 horsepower), C350 V-6 (268 horsepower) and the C550 V-8 (380 horsepower), all with the automaker’s seven-speed automatic. After a year a C55 AMG is expected. If the current German horsepower war continues, there’s room under the hood for a C63 AMG, ready to out-gun even the upcoming V-8-engined BMW M3.
