The GLK 250 blutech is coming/here too. I think that if BMW had put their 35d into a 5 series sedan it would still be sold. The mid-size is where the diesels sell best. The 3 series was just too small a package IMHO. The MB will be a good seller with excellent fuel mileage.

You did see that they are bringing the 530d xDrive over this year, right?

Mercedes is introducing a new model, the E250 BlueTec for 2014, which replaces the E350 BlueTec. The E250 BlueTec comes with a 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel engine, which produces 190 horsepower (140 kw) and 369 pound-feet (500 Nm) of torque.
Does that mean starting next year that the E250 is all we have access to in the States? As in no more E350 BlueTec here. If so then talk about pushing people over to that 5-series diesel that is supposed to be coming here.

Not happy with this shift. Our E350 Bluetec is very nice, but I don't want less power or more NVH for some mpg gains.
