Hey anyone know of a new 3.o liter 230 hp engine for benz labeled the 280? I saw an SLK280 at the auto show and was convinced that it was a euro model but then why would it be in NYC? That would be a decent alternative to save money and apparently it gets 29 highway. It was MY 2006 but no price? anyone know what the MSRP would be??

I have heard that they are coming out with an SLKxxx with a smaller engine for the US market in summer.

If M/B is looking to produce a less expensive SLK, reducing the displacement alone won't do anything. It will be interesting to see what other standard items are deleted to reduce the price. Perhaps the 280 will cost what a 350 does now and the 350 and 55 will increase in price. My salesman said that nothing has been officially said by M/B but he speculates that the prices will have to rise for the 2006's because of the weak dollar against the Euro.
