Preview: 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLK

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

All of you folks may know already that Mercedes-Benz is working hard on the new SLK coupe-cabriolet, which will hit the dealerships in 2011, but today we found out some new details about the upcoming car. First of all, the car will receive a 2.0-liter engine, with 204 hp and an impressive 500 Nm of torque.

Dubbed SLK 250 CDI, this new mode will take on the Audi TT Roadster TDI as well as on the Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0 and 2.4 JTDm.

Also, the new car will carry a four-cylinder twin-turbo direct injection engine in the form of the SLK 250 CGI, which will replace the old SLK 200 Kompressor and which will develop 204 hp.

The new SLK 350 CGI will be powered by the new 306 hp V6 engine found on the recently introduced Shooting Break Concept. For those who don't know, Mercedes-Benz announced two new V6 and V8 engines, which will be introduce this autumn.

Other options include a new glass roof, previously reserved just for the SL-Class. Regarding the design of the 2011 SLK, expect a radical change as the old generation did have poor sales comparing it to the first SLK model introduced back in 2006. [via automobile-magazine]
