W211s have only been available since 2003, so the re-designed E-Class of 2007 makes just 5 years. I was told by my dealer that 2009 is the year for a completely new model.
Maybe Daimler will eventually follow the other manufacturers, but most german car makers find a good design and stay with it for a number of years. Once they do re-design a particular model it's a pretty radical departure from its predecessor. Look at the new S-Class for example: they ran with the other basic design from 2000-2006, then changed it quite a bit for 2007.
By the way, I'm a little confused about the W140s and the change to W220. Is there some overlap of the 1999 model years, or are all '99s W140 and all '00s W220?
