According to some recent reports it seems that Mercedes Benz wants to launch on the American market a number of 8 new different diesel models and one of them will definetly be the new C Class.
Now, we all know that this compact executive car is one of the models with the best selling figures. Still, because currently Mercedes Benz has on the American market diesel options for the E, M, GL and R Class models, with the S Class waiting its turn at the end of 2011, it's very unlikely to see the first diesel C Class on the other side of the ocean earlier than 2013.
For now, all we know, according to unofficial sources, is that the car will have the same 2.1 liter 204 hp turbo diesel as the one found on the new GLK and that it will feature a very sweet not to 60 in 7 seconds combined with a new fuel economy technology.
On the other hand, it seems that unlike his C Class cousin, the new GLK is expected to show up in the American showrooms in the fall of 2012.
That's all for the moment, but stay tuned with us to be the first to find out what's new on the auto market.
