station wagons are nearly extinct, but the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon continues trickling into America, crafted in small batches for discerning enthusiasts of the classic estate body style. Still, you can’t blame Benz for trying to find a way to sell more of them, so for the 2021 model year, the automaker rolls out the new E 450 All-Terrain.
In addition to the minor styling updates and technology improvements Mercedes bestows upon all 2021 E-Class models, the new All-Terrain adopts SUV design details that give it a more rugged look. Plus, all E 450 models have a new light-electrified and turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine this year, complete with the company’s EQ Boost integrated starter generator (ISG) and 48-volt electrical system. In the E-Class wagon lineup, the new E 450 All-Terrain is the base model, priced from $67,600. That’s well below the only other version of the E-Class wagon, the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S, which kicks off at $112,450. Our test vehicle had nearly all of the upgrades and wore a window sticker reading $83,365, including the $995 destination charge.
