A new generation of the E-Class is here. The automaker revealed the revamped saloon just last month, showing off the redesigned model. The four-door E-Class won’t be the only variant available, with Mercedes preparing a tall All-Terrain version. New, unofficial renderings peel back the camouflage to reveal what the car could look like when it breaks cover.
We expect to see the E-Class saloon’s new design language on the new All-Terrain variant. The renderings show the high-riding estate with the saloon’s front and rear fascias. The grille is slightly larger than on the previous car, with the model adopting design cues from the brand’s electric EQ offerings.

The bigger changes are at the rear with the car’s extended roof. It forms a stylish hatch that incorporates the brand’s new taillight graphics. The All-Terrain offering also stands out with its fender cladding, upgraded side sills, and chrome diffuser at the back.
The E-Class All-Terrain will compete against the A6 Allroad, another long-roofed, high-riding estate trying its best to convince consumers that it is better than a crossover. The Audi features a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 making 335 bhp and 369 lb-ft of torque, which is less than the E450.
Mercedes hasn’t announced when it plans to reveal the E-Class All-Terrain variant, but a leaked EPA document indicated that the model would be on sale for the 2024 model year, which means we might not have to wait much longer for the big reveal.
The E-Class All-Terrain isn’t the only other model variant we are waiting for. The automaker also has to reveal the AMG E63, which could make around 700 bhp from its hybrid 3.0-litre inline-six engine. That’s more than the current AMG’s 603 bhp.
