My belief at this time is that the current engine will last for about 18 months. So, maybe that is a 2004.<br> <br> Regards, Lawrence.

This what is scheduled in Europe...

The 5.5 engine is already scheduled for the brand new CLK, launched this week at Geneva exhibition.<br> <br> 5.5 liters for 367 HP, not that bad, that should give the SL some more punch and easy acceleration.

Wow! Thats great news!

My lease ends july 2003! I am on the list for the new SL for a few years so I can get it almost anytime. So I hope by the time I need it it will be SL550!

my lease ends sept, 2003- i wish there was more info available on the timing of the 4 valve/cylinder

5.5l engine available. it seems like a closely guarded secret-perhaps to protect current sales of the 'new' sl with its old engine and old gps system.

Re: Wow! Thats great news!

Please let me know of all the changes for 2004. I just put the order in last week for a car amd understand I wont see it untill next year. My dealer removed the price on the receipt and wrote as delivered. He said there was going to be a few changes.<br>

Re: Different 5.5-liter Supercharged V8 For CLK55 AMG & SL55 AMG

Although both CLK55 AMG and SL55 AMG have a 5.5-liter supercharged V8. The one in CLK55 produces 367hp while the one in SL55 produces 476hp!<br> <br> The E55 AMG will use the one in SL55 AMG.<br> <br> As for the coming S-Class and CL-Class, the top-of-the-range engine may be a 5.6-liter Bi-turbo V12 that produces 476hp and 900Nm.
