With its new V-6 turbo-diesel, the E320 drops the CDI suffix in favor of Bluetec.

Mercedes-Benz has been building diesel automobiles since the 260D of the 1930s, so it's no surprise that Mercedes is the first and only manufacturer to make a diesel passenger car that meets newly tightened U.S. emissions regulations for 2007. With its new V-6 turbo-diesel, the E320 drops the CDI suffix in favor of Bluetec. Bluetec refers to AdBlue, the nice name Mercedes gives to the urea-based liquid additive that helps the Bluetec diesel achieve ultralow emissions. For the '07 model year, however, the new Bluetec diesel V-6 doesn't yet use urea injection; it therefore cannot meet emissions standards in California (and the other states that use the same, stricter standards). Mercedes hopes to debut the urea-injected Bluetec diesel next year, in the GL-class, the R-class, and the ML-class, which would all be fifty-state compliant.
