Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain to get bigger diesel – UPDATE

UPDATE (3/4/18): The original version of this article stated there is no current six-cylinder E-Class All-Terrain available globally, however, an E350d 4Matic is offered in select markets like the UK. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain has been around for 18 months, but there's still no sign of a larger engine to sit above the current E220d in most markets – though that could be about to change.
