Mercedes-Benz officially introduced today the 2014 V-Class, the youngest and largest member of its automobile family. At its market launch, the 2014 V-Class will be available with the cutting-edge 2.1-liter turbodiesel engine offered in three output ratings: 100 kW (136 hp) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque for the V200 CDI, 120 kW (163 hp) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque for the V220 CDI, and 140 kW (190 hp) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque for the V250 BlueTec.
According to Mercedes-Benz, the 2014 V-Class can be ordered with a short or a longwheelbase (3,200 mm and 3,430 mm) and will be available in three different lengths ranging from 4,895 mm and 5,370 mm. As expected, the 2014 V-Class comes with new features such as the Crosswind Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST as standard.
Furthermore, the V-Class features optional systems such as a 360-degree camera, active parking assistance and the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission. Inside, we find the new touchpad for operating all of the telematics functions in the vehicle.
What’s more interesting is that the rear window of the vehicle can be opened and closed independently of the rear hatch, enabling users to access a second cargo platform. Pricing starts at €42,900, excluding sales tax — at any Mercedes dealership, no matter whether it’s a sales outlet for vans or cars.
