Mercedes Promises Legal Diesels for SUVs in 2008

MONTVALE, New Jersey — Mercedes-Benz said it will offer diesel-powered editions of its sport-utility triplets — the M-, R- and GL-Class vehicles — in calendar-year 2008 that will meet the EPA's stringent new Bin5 emissions standards in all 50 states.

The SUVs will be equipped with the automaker's new Bluetec clean-diesel technology. One of the processes that Mercedes will introduce is a urea-injection system that it says will help reduce nitrogen-oxide emissions by up to 80 percent.

This fall, Mercedes will launch the E320 Bluetec sedan, fitted with a Bluetec 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel, which it says is the only diesel in the U.S. market certified to meet the EPA's Bin8 standards.
