Mercedes-Benz has recently announced its plans to officially pull the wraps off the 2014 V-Class this Thursday.

Following a lot of teaser images and reports, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz V-Class is getting ready to make its way onto the market later on this year, as the German based automaker has recently announced its plans to officially unveil it online. The model in question will be replacing the current Viano and it will get a more passenger oriented approach, with higher quality materials in the cabin and a completely redesigned interior. The vehicle will be sold in the passenger showrooms and it could serve as an R-Class replacement too.

Rumors are saying that the 2015 Mercedes-Benz V-Class will be powered by a 2.1 liter four-cylinder BlueEfficiency diesel engine, which should be producing 136 HP (100 kW), 170 HP (125 kW) and 190 HP (139 kW). The unit will be mated to either a seven-speed automatic transmission or to the new 9G-TRONIC which made its way onto the E350 BlueTec recently. Additional details on the 2015 Mercedes-Benz V-Class are limited for the moment and will be announced in a couple of days, when the model will be officially unveiled.
