Germany market share, E-Class vs. rivals

The Mercedes-Benz W211 is the third generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class made from 2002 to 2009 in sedan/saloon and station wagon/estate configurations – replacing the W210 E-Class models and superseded by the Mercedes-Benz W212 in 2009.

The supercharged 5.4 L V8 engine was mated to the Speedshift 5-speed automatic transmission, which has a torque capacity of 796 lbft, as the newer 7G-Tronic introduced in 2003 is limited to 542 lbft, not enough to handle the torque from the supercharged V8.
