It has been confirmed that the redesigned Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan, U.S. built, will debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show in January before going on sale in August 2014.

In 2015, the updated C-class sedan will be followed up by a redesigned coupe, the C-Class convertible is also scheduled to go on sale in 2015. The sedan, coupe and cabriolet will then be followed by diesel and hybrid models as well as an all-wheel drive option. Mercedes-Benz USA CEO Steve Cannon did not confirm when the diesel and hybrid models will arrive, but a spokesman for Mercedes-Benz said the hybrid will be debuting in 2015 as well.

Cannon confirmed to Automotive News that, because of low anticipated demand, the redesigned C-class station wagon will not be sold in the United States.

Also commented on by Cannon was that the redesigned C-class exterior will be changed significantly, based on the spy photos, it will have far crisper and sharper lines.

As for Mercedes-Benz adding crossover variants to the C-Class lineup, it’s not likely. Cannon stated that vehicles like the BMW 3-series GT is “an answer to product question that no one is asking for.”

The Tuscaloosa, Ala. Mercedes-Benz plant is currently being expanded in order to make room for production of the C-Class sedan for North America starting next year with a output of around 100,000 units annually.
