Mercedes-Benz will be expanding its engine lineup with the addition of a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 powerplant with at least 335 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.

The twin-turbo V6 powerplant will join the German automaker’s current naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 offering, though it’s believed that the twin-turbo engine will not only offer more performance, but better fuel efficiency. The current 3.5-liter V6 features 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.

It is expected that Mercedes will outfit its E-Class models, the CLS, S-Class, ML, and GL with the new twin-turbo engine while the naturally aspirated engine will be found in the C-Class coupe and SLK roadster.
