Unofficially Official: U.S. C-Class and GLK Get 2.2 BlueTec in 2010

IL Insider: Mercedes Launches GLK, Confirms It's Eyeing Production Shift to U.S.

Edmunds is quoting a Mercedes spokesman who let slip that while it is still unofficial the 2.2 liter diesel will be coming to North America but not until 2010. The holdup is the fact that the 2.2 has to be fitted with Bluetec technology to make it 50 state legal. When the engine does arrive, expect to see the GLK's average mpg to slot in just under 40 miles per gallon. Giddyup!
