The 2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain makes its debut as a high-riding, all-wheel-drive wagon, catering to customers who seek light off-roading experiences on surfaces like dirt or gravel but prefer the form factor of a wagon over an SUV. This model is set to arrive in the United States in 2024, with pricing details expected closer to the launch date. The vehicle will be publicly unveiled at the upcoming IAA Mobility event in Munich.
Setting it apart from the sedan variant, the All-Terrain boasts a distinctive front grille design with two bars and an Iridium Silver finish at the center, along with a revised lower fascia. Dark gray cladding highlights the wheel arches. While the wagon comes standard with 18-inch wheels, customers can opt for 19- or 20-inch sizes.
The cargo area of the All-Terrain offers a generous 21.7 cubic feet of storage space, which can be expanded to an impressive 64.6 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. In comparison, the E-Class sedan provides 19 cubic feet of trunk space. Convenience features include a power tailgate and a retractable luggage cover.
Under the hood, the E-Class All-Terrain comes in the mild-hybrid E 450 4Matic configuration, powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine delivering 375 horsepower between 5,800 and 6,100 rpm, along with 369 pound-feet of torque. The electric Boost system supplements this with an additional 23 hp and 151 lb-ft. The wagon can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in an estimated 4.6 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph.
The All-Terrain model features Mercedes’ Airmatic single-chamber air suspension as standard, offering continuously adjustable damping. This system maintains consistent ground clearance, regardless of the vehicle’s load. In the Comfort setting, the suspension provides a 0.6-inch reduction in ride height at speeds exceeding 75 mph.

Inside the cabin, the All-Terrain is equipped with the Mercedes MBUX Superscreen infotainment display, mirroring the setup available in the sedan variant. For those who opt, a front passenger screen is available. The vehicle introduces an Off-Road driving program that transforms the driver and central screens to display information such as a compass, latitude and longitude coordinates, a vehicle angle indicator, and tire pressures. Additionally, a “transparent hood” function is part of the 360-degree camera system, enhancing visibility of the terrain surroundings.
The standard safety suite for the wagon includes features like attention assist, active brake assist, and a parking package. For advanced safety options, the Driver Assistance Package can be added, incorporating active steering assist, active lane keeping assist, active speed limit assist, and adaptive cruise control.
