Facelifted 2011 Mercedes-Benz R Class photos leaked ahead of NY debut | Rpmgo.com

Mercedes-Benz is preparing to showcase a new and improved 2011 R Class model lineup at this week’s New York Auto Show, at least according to these leaked photos which ended up on the Internet last weekend.

As you can see, this is a pretty major facelift, with MB radically improving the front fascia of the R Class, which as you may know, wasn’t exactly a best seller, due to its odd styling and small niche. With the new improvements though, we actually like what we see. The front end finally has a bit of personality, while the lenght of the people carrier isn’t as apparent as the original generation.

No concrete details are known at this point, but it’s pretty obvious that the same V6 engines will be offered to consumers, and basically the same interior. An AMG styling package will no doubt appear, but don’t cross your fingers for any performance variants of the luxury station wagon.

Stay tuned for more details at the end of the week when the New York Auto Show begins. Until then, check out the photo gallery below of the leaked pictures of the facelifted 2011 Mercedes-Benz R Class.
