The Mercedes-Benz 300 CD model name represents two coupe models in Mercedes-Benz Series 123 (C 123 D 30 and C 123 D 30 A, respectively). One, the "base" Mercedes-Benz 300 CD, debuted in 1977 and ran until going out of production in 1981. It incorporated a four-stroke, in-line, five-cylinder diesel engine with a single overhead camshaft and Bosch five-plunger injection pump. Paired with a four-speed automatic transmission, the engine produced 78 horsepower until late 1979, when output rose to 84 horsepower.
The other model, the Mercedes-Benz 300 CD Turbodiesel, was offered between 1981 and 1985. It, too, had a four-stroke I5 diesel engine, but one with an exhaust turbocharger, which made it capable of 121 horsepower (125 horsepower after 1982). Cam, fuel-injector, and gearbox specs were similar to its sibling.
