The new BlueDIRECT V6 engine that powers the CLS 350 BlueEFFICIENCY was developed using lightweight materials consistently. It features spray-guided direct petrol injection with piezo injectors, four valves per cylinder and adjustable intake and exhaust camshafts.
Comprehensive conservation of resources: In addition, the energy efficiency of the ancillary equipment has been improved. The CLS 350 BlueEFFICIENCY saves fuel, reduces CO2 emissions and increases smooth running characteristics.
The innovative BlueDIRECT V8 engine stands for effortless superiority in every driving situation. The engines from the new BlueDIRECT engine family, powering the CLS 500 BlueEFFICIENCY and the CLS 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY, feature reduced consumption and correspondingly lower emissions compared with the predecessor engine.
Lightweight materials are consistently used throughout, in addition to which the displacement has been reduced (downsizing), enabling consumption and emissions to be reduced by more than 20 percent compared with the preceding model.
The CLS 63 AMG is powered by a 5.5-litre AMG V8 biturbo engine that delivers 386 kW and attains a maximum torque of 700 Newton metres.
