Mercedes-Benz has recently launched the new GLK250 BlueTec 4MATIC in the United States, where the model is available to its future customers from 39, 459 USD.

The Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTec 4MATIC is a diesel version of the compact crossover which, according to the company’s head of product management for the United States, is 20-30 percent more economical than the gasoline powered version. Bart Herring says that the model is capable of 24 / 33 mpg in city / highway, which is a significant improvement from the 3.5L V6 GLK350’s 19 / 24 mpg in city highway.

According to the German based automaker, the Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTec 4MATIC is powered by a 2.1 liter four-cylinder twin turbo engine, which is producing a total output of 201 HP (150 kW) and it has a peak torque of 500 Nm (369 lb-ft), mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The same engine will replace the facelifted E-Class’ 3.0 liter V6 diesel, and next year, the model will be used on the new generation of the C-Class too. The Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTec 4MATIC is now available for order from 39,459 USD across the U.S.
