2015 Mercedes-Benz SL400 gets a $84,000 price tag in the US and a twin-turbo V6

Back in April, Mercedes-Benz introduced in Europe the new SL400, a new model powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine developing 333 hp (245 kW) at 5,250 to 6,000 rpm and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque at 1,600 to 4,000 rpm. Today, we found out thanks to Autoblog that the 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL400 available also in the United States and has a starting price of $84,000 excluding the $925 destination charge.

We also observed that the US-spec SL400 comes with 329 hp, but it is still a fast car as it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.1 seconds. So, if you don’t want the SL550, which comes with a 4.7-liter biturbo V8 and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds, the SL400 could be the perfect choices.

Also the $22,900 difference looks pretty interesting as the SL500 is priced at $106,900 excluding the $925 destination charge of course.

Still, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL400 can get more expensive if you want the Sport Wheel Package ($2,000), which includes a new set of 19-inch AMG 5-spoke wheels, upgraded brake hardware featuring larger front discs and perforated rear discs, and a sport steering wheel featuring perforated side grips and silver-painted shift paddles.

The Premium 1 Package ($4,900) adds a rearview camera, Parktronic with Active Parking Assist, Active Ventilated seats, Airscarf neck-level heating system, Active multicontour seats with massage feature, electronic trunk closer with hands-free access and keyless go. The Magic Sky Control costs $2,500 while the impressive Bang & Olufsen BeoSound Premium Sound System is priced at $5,400.
