Default Mercedes brings back the straight 6

Return of the Mercedes straight 6.

It's back. With improvements like an electric assist motor which helps with turbo lag. First time a Mercedes straight 6 has been used since 1999.

Inline 6's died a tragic death that never should have happened.

Change my mind.

IIRC this engine will have no serpentine belt either.

All electric everything else.

I had one in my '90s Mercedes. Can't remember the exact year that car was. Smooth motor.

My mom had a 98 E320. It pulled pretty good on the highway due to the gearing.

Not saying it's right, but I believe it was for packaging, straight 6 is long, V6 is compact, and manufacturers could use existing tooling/parts from their V8's, when you lop 2 cylinders off.

But the inherent balance and smoothness of an I6 should never be discounted.

Never happen unless they make an LS version. That said the Vortec 4200 is supposedly pretty tasty.
