Report: 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 Bluetec 4MATIC goes on sale for US diesel lovers

According to a report by WorldCarFans, Mercedes-Benz GLK fans yearning for a diesel model in the US can now be satisfied as the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK can now be had with a 2.1L Bluetec four-banger turbodiesel, complete with 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

The 2.1L compression-ignition mill channels its 201hp and 369 lb-ft of torque through a seven-speed automatic transmission. Mercedes-Benz claims an EPA rating of 24/33 city/highway mpg, which is a huge improvement over the top-of-the-line 3.5L gasoline V6 in the GLK350 that returns 19/24 mpg.
