2013 E 350, E400, or E 550 - That is the question

Hello everyone,

I am in the process of deciding which of the E 2013 to order. I understand that other than more power, the E 550 has a better(?) suspension than the E 350. Has ayone compared? Id the difference worth the experience?

Also, I understand the E 400 will come with the 2012 V6 + a 27HP electric motor adding 184 ft-lbs of torque. It's suposed to have a "boost" capability which, one would expect, should make the E400 a better performer than the E350, yet the 0-60 timing is 6.7 sec. which is very similar to that of the E 350. The milege improvement is really not that significant from the E350. If my facts are correct, what is the real advantage of the E400?

I would apprciate any toughts on both issues. Thanks.
