Generating 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, the 3.0L V6 combines twin turbos and numerous advances to optimize response and responsibility. Rapid-multispark ignition can fire up to four times per millisecond, while high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune fuel spray in 0.1 millisecond, reducing emissions, fuel consumption and noise. A lightweight diecast-alloy block, widely variable valve timing, reduced friction, and clever "on-demand'' ancillary components further boost efficiency.
The all-wheel-drive S 450 and S 560 4MATIC Sedans continually send their engines' torque to the wheels that can use it best. Lightweight, nimble and efficient, 4MATIC® enhances handling and performance in any season.
A fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
The plug-in S 560e blends sumptuous and sensible like never before. A biturbo V6, 90kW electric motor and compact lithium-ion battery team up for a combined 469 hp. Radar helps it recoup energy as you brake. GPS map data can better its highway efficiency and in-town range, even when you're not navigating. Its gas pedal can even help you drive smarter, sometimes using no gas at all.
