Mercedes-AMG E-Class All-Terrain uncertain

Given AMG's penchant for enhancing most Mercedes models, speculation that the new E-Class Terrain might get the '43' or '63' treatment has understandably been hot. Combining the rugged toughness of a plastic-clad SUV with the usefulness of a wagon is no new concept by any means, but there’s a lot to like about that package with some AMG fettling… It seems, however, there will be no imminent arrival of a Mercedes-AMG E-Class All-Terrain...
