Click on the 2013 Mercedes Benz GLK250 BlueTEC diesel video above to see a walk around of the new diesel GLK . These long awaited GLK diesels have started to arrive at dealer showrooms! While they have just 200 horsepower they pack a whopping 369 ft./Lbs. of torque… all from a miserly turbo charged inline 4 cylinder engine capable of well over 30mpg on the highway.
The EPA estimates printed on the window sticker show 24mpg city 33mpg highway with a combined number of 28mpg. Chances are you’ll get closer to 40mpg with cruise control on the highway.
This particular car is Pebble Grey with a black interior and very well equipped. It has the P1 Package (Premium 1 Package), Multimedia Package, Lighting Package, Lane Tracking Package as well as KEYLESS GO and a number of other stand alone options.
The response to these vehicles has been great so far… hopefully supply will keep up with demand.
Have a look at the engine detail video I took just a few minutes after this one, it will give you a look under the hood at the 4 cylinder inline, turbo charged engine. Link to that video on Youtube here.
