2009 Mercedes-Benz S350 spotted in Las Vegas

Muamer Hodzic April 25, 2009

It’s been only a few weeks since Mercedes-Benz introduced the S350 and S400 Hybrid to the world, but one Benz fan has actually spotted a few right here in the States. He was kind enough to share these exclusive spy shots of the update S-Class with us and every other Benz fan – Thank you.

We’re not sure if this is the 4Matic version, or the CDI BlueEFFICIENCY one (most likely the 4Matic), as it’s not visible on the spy shots. The S350 is powered by a 6 cylinder, 3.5 liter engine, producing 272hp. Given that we are already seeing shots of the new 2009 S-Class stateside, it save to assume that dealers will be receiving these babies pretty soon in a larger volume.

A big thank you to Chase for sending them in.

  1. Do you think they will bring a ‘small’ engine like the 3.5 liter to the S-Class in the US? I would have thought it was unlikely. In the US the S-Class is synonymous with larger engines.

    Could this 3.5 liter be here for testing purposes instead of for the market?

  2. It could definitely be only for test purposes here, but why a 3.5 liter engine, if they want to test, why not test it with the engine you’ll offer in the country.

    I don’t know, we’ll have to see.

  3. I actually hope they do offer the S-Class with the 3.5 V6, as they do in Europe. The 268HP engine is perfectly fine for cruising around cities and highways.

  4. The US is synonymous with large displacement engines, and also with being the most environment UNfriendly nation on earth; consider, for a second, that the whole point of a hybrid is to get away from fuel guzzling polluting engines. What’s the point of putting a gaz guzzler engine with a hybrid? I imagine they didn’t put hybrid technology in the s class for the fun of it, but instead are trying to be gradually more friendly to the environment.
