Unique equipment for the new engine assembly:
Adding yet another first to its achievement, Electronic Torqueing is now introduced for the first time in the engine assembly for the E 220 d. Some unique equipment for the all new E 220 d comprises:

  • Oil spray nozzle position checking through optical camera
  • Bearing assembly
  • Liquid sealant application system
  • Intercooler assembly
  • Turbocharger sub-assembly fixture

Key Engine highlights:  

  •  Flat steel pistons with innovative Mercedes-Benz stepped combustion bowls and long connecting rods
  •  All exhaust treatment technologies configured directly on the engine
  •  Extensive measures for friction reduction, such as the NANOSLIDE® coating of the cylinder walls
  • Fourth-generation common rail injection
  • Offset of the crank assembly
  • Reduced displacement
  • Systematic lightweight design
  • Unusual combination: aluminium engine block and steel pistons  

World premiere in a passenger car: Stepped-bowl combustion process
It is the first passenger car diesel engine to use the stepped-bowl combustion process (named after the shape of the combustion bowl) in the piston. The innovations also include the combination of aluminium engine block and steel pistons with a furtherimproved NANOSLIDE® coating of the cylinder walls.

New NANOSLIDE coating technology : Overall, the NANOSLIDE process reduces the use of gray cast iron by approx. 1,000 tonnes and of aluminum by approx. 8,000 tonnes per year.
This is an innovative and economical process for reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in combustion engines. By means of twin-wire arc spraying (TWAS), the cylinder inner surfaces in the aluminum crankcases are provided with an extremely thin coating based on an iron-carbon alloy. The mirror-smooth surface reduces 50 percent friction between piston, piston ring and cylinder track and reduces the weight of engine.
