Introducing The All-New Mercedes-AMG E53 Sedan And Wagon

The new Mercedes-AMG E53, offered in both sedan and wagon body styles, will be the next AMG to receive a charging port. This AMG Lite model retains the inline-six but boasts an even more potent 3.0-liter gasoline engine. The new AMG E53 has 443 horsepower, up from 429 in the previous model, thanks to some tweaks to the turbocharged six-cylinder engine.

A combined output of 577 hp is now possible thanks to the combustion engine and an electric motor with a combined rating of 161 hp. The total output is temporarily increased to 603 hp when Race Start, which is marketing speak for launch control, is activated.

You receive a huge increase in torque from the previous model's 384 lb-ft to this one's 553 lb-ft. There's enough electric power to drive from zero to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds in the sedan and an additional 0.1 seconds in the rather heavier wagon. There is an electronic limitation that caps both vehicles at 155 mph, but if you opt for the AMG Driver's Package, the saloon can reach 174 mph and the long-roof can reach 171 mph.

With no external power source, the new Mercedes-AMG E53 versions may reach a maximum speed of 87 mph. Both the sedan and the wagon have opted for a plug-in hybrid system. The battery pack, which has a useful capacity of 21.22 kWh, is mounted beneath the trunk floor. According to Mercedes, it can successfully complete the WLTP cycle for over 62 miles.

In order to maximize storage space, the nine-speed automatic transmission incorporates an e-motor that draws power from the battery pack. The Mercedes-AMG E53 is different from a regular E-Class because of its firmer body, larger brakes, and standard rear-wheel steering. It has an adaptive suspension with adjustable damping in addition to its completely variable AWD system.

A little more aggression is added to the sporty E's look with widened front fenders, quad-round exhaust tips, and an illuminated grid-like grille. Curiously, compared to a standard E-Class, the front axle is a little broader. Because the AMG E53 Coupe and AMG E53 Convertible aren't returning for a new generation, Mercedes isn't considering two-door models. But the new CLE53 models are taking their place, according to the upscale German brand.

Mercedes-AMG E53

Though they lack plug-in hybrid technology, these also include an inline-six engine. It is widely anticipated that the upcoming E63 will also come equipped with a charging port. Regrettably, an inline-six will replace the powerful V8. The electrification of the four-cylinder C63 and V8-powered S63 indicates that AMG performance cars with only ICE configurations are about to come to an end.

The United States will be the exclusive market for the Mercedes-AMG sedan. Later this year, it will be available for purchase, and the carmaker will reveal the price as we get closer to the debut.
