  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: New Mercedes E-class All Terrain Wagon Ventures (Not Far) Off Road

Recommended Posts

Mercedes-Benz E-class All-Terrain

-

Mercedes-Benz is about to launch a crossover-tinged version of the 2017 E-class station wagon. Modeled after the Audi Allroad Quattro, the new derivative will be called All Terrain.

-

-

Set to make its debut at the Paris auto show this fall, the E-class All Terrain is differentiated from the regular E-class wagon by its greater ride height, unpainted cladding around the wheel arches and on the lower body, as well as redesigned front and rear bumpers. A 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system will be standard, and the vehicle will be offered with several gasoline and diesel engines. No AMG derivatives are planned.

-

Mercedes-Benz says that the vehicle will go relatively far off the road—but there won’t be any special equipment beyond the higher ground clearance and off-road software. We also hear that the interior will remain largely unchanged; Mercedes is not planning specific color-and-trim options to complement the All Terrain’s more-rugged exterior design.

Somewhat surprisingly, there are no current plans to bring the E-class All Terrain to the U.S. For now, Mercedes-Benz is set to send us the 2017 E400 station wagon—and, we expect, an AMG version as well. But off-road-themed wagons have proven popular here, most notably the Subaru Outback and the Volvo Cross Country, so it could be that in the future the All Terrain will also find its way to our shores.
