The 2009 Mercedes R-Class is a luxury touring wagon with room for 7-occupants. Part minivan, part wagon, part SUV, the mid-size R-Class crossover is designed to go anywhere in style.
To get there safely, the R-Class's 4-wheel electronic traction system senses wheel slip at any of the 4 wheels and applies individual brakes and/or locks the center differential... ensuring that traction is maintained regardless of road conditions.
There are two engines from which to choose: a new clean-burning 210 horsepower 3-liter turbodiesel V6 and a 268 horsepower 3.5-liter gas V6. Power is sent to 4MATIC all wheel drive through a 7-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy for the R-Class ranges from 15 miles per gallon city, up to 24 miles per gallon highway.
Base MSRP for the 2009 Mercedes-Benz R-Class is $47,650, and will top out at just under $65,000. The R-Class comes with a 4-year, 50,000-mile powertrain warranty.
