German Automaker to Debut High-Tech Steel Pistons
Mercedes-Benz made a loud buzz in 1936 when it pioneered the launch of the 260D—a diesel passenger car. Years passed, and diesel automobiles rose to fame in the automotive world due to their outstanding efficiency and fuel economy. Currently, the premier automaker is building on that success with the launch of high-tech steel pistons in the Mercedes-Benz E 350 BlueTEC’s V6 diesel engine.
With the new pistons, the car is anticipated to deliver the same engine output as would be attained with aluminum pistons (190 kW/258 hp) yet will only utilize about 5.0 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers—an improvement of approximately 3%.
