The problem is that for a vehicle to be legal for sale in the USA EVERY drivetrain combination must be extensively tested to meet EPA specifications.
That's why there are no what MBUSA believes will be low-volume models.
Because the sales won't recover the costs of certification.
That's why there are no E-class diesel 4matics.
That's why there are no E-class diesel station wagons.
That's why the ML/GL offroad package is only available with one engine.
The testing involves an actual 50,000 mile roadtest.
