The SUVs are to be assembled in Alabama and will feature the automaker’s new Bluetec clean-diesel technology. One of the processes that Mercedes will introduce is a urea-injection system that it says will help reduce nitrogen-oxide emissions by up to 80 percent.

This Autumn, Mercedes will launch the E320 Bluetec saloon, fitted with a Bluetec 3.0L V6 turbodiesel, which it says is the only diesel in the U.S. market certified to meet the EPA’s Bin8 standards.
