Mercedes-Benz Confirms GLK-Class Diesel for 2013 Model Year!

Mercedes-benz GLK-Class diesel

Automotive News is reporting that MBUSA CEO, Steve Cannon, confirmed the arrival of a diesel engine for the 2013 GLK-Class! The engine is expected to arrive as a 2013 model, at the same time the GLK-Class gets its’ mid-cycle refresh in the fall of 2012! The GLK-Class is already made with a variety of diesel engines in other markets. Most articles I have read are suggessting the US bound diesel GLK-Class will be the GLK250, a 4-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower and 369 lb/ft of torque but this is not confirmed.

Thank Mercedes-Benz! We love diesel!
