According to a recent reveal from Detroit, a jacked up all-wheel drive crossover wagon dubbed All-Terrain will be a surprise addition to the Mercedes-Benz’s fifth-generation E-Class line-up this Fall.

Thee off-road E-Class would be positioned between the standard E-Class Estate and the GLE SUV, poised specifically to go head-to-head with the Audi Allroad Quattro in concept. The All-Terrain is expected to break cover during the new E-Class wagon launch in September, launching in Europe before the end of the year. It is unlikely however that it will ever see its way to American Soil as Mercedes’ own Matthias Luhrs commented that crossovers are market dependent and “Americans don’t like station wagons”. Case in point, the souped up kiddie hauler that was part station wagon part mini-van(Vision R63 AMG) from 2005 that should have been a hit with soccer moms everywhere but sadly missed the mark.

Other interesting additions to the line-up confirmed to motoring.com.au overnight in Detroit include:

>> The all-new C-class Cabriolet in August
>> The new C 450 AMG 4MATIC in the final quarter, but updated from current spec with the new Benz 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic
>> The all-new GLC Coupe in the final quarter
