Variable-torque AMG Performance 4MATIC+ sends torque to the wheels that can best turn it into power and agility. From acceleration to cornering, 4MATIC+ can go from 50/50 front/rear, up to 100% RWD.
The E 53's new inline-6 teams a twin-scroll turbo, electric auxiliary compressor and electric EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator for a 0-60 rush of 4.4 seconds. Two twin-scroll turbos help the handcrafted biturbo V8 catapult the E 63 S to 60 in 3.3 seconds.
Quick-shifting 9-speeds put a mountain of torque at your feet and fingertips. The multiclutch AMG SPEEDSHIFT® MCT in the E 63 S and the E 53's AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT offer multiple modes and multigear downshifts.
AMG brakes are performance-matched to the power they rein in. Multipiston calipers grasp perforated front discs. The mighty E 63 S features composite brakes with red calipers, or a ceramic composite option that cuts weight and raises stamina.
Based on AIR BODY CONTROL, the AMG Sport Suspension balances confidence, competence, and comfort. It can adapt in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. And it can lower at speed to enhance stability and efficiency.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune the car's performance character via controls on the console or the steering-wheel AMG DRIVE UNIT. Five driving modes, one customizable, vary throttle feel, shifting, chassis and more from Slippery to Sport+.
The cylinder walls of the diecast aluminum block are created in an AMG-patented process that benefits performance, efficiency and durability. NANOSLIDE® technology uses a twin-wire arc spray to coat the bores with an ultrahard layer that's honed to an ultralow-friction, mirror-like finish. Without the added weight of cylinder liners, the bores and lightweight forged pistons are matched with even greater dimensional precision, for more immediate and consistent power over a longer service life.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. 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.
AMG® wheels are offered in no fewer than four styles, all staggered in width and nearly all 20 inches in diameter. Wider rear wheels enhance grip at launch, with front wheels sized for crisp steering feedback.
AMG Carbon Fiber and Night Packages further embolden the E-Class AMG Sedans. A new dark-tinted grille option deepens the blackout effect of the Night Package.
Bold new looks advance the iconic E-Class from every angle. The redesigned LED headlamps, a new expression of the vertical-bar AMG grille, and a deep front apron with aggressive air intakes add up to a more commanding presence. The rear is dramatically reshaped, as well, with new horizontally oriented LED taillamps adding sporty distinction. Flared side sills, twin power domes in the hood, and a rear apron with functional diffuser assert the extensive attention to aerodynamic and visual detail.
If desired, the "V8 biturbo/4MATIC+" emblems on the E 63's front fenders can be deleted at no charge for a more discreet look. For a cleaner, stealthier parting view, the AMG and model emblems can be deleted from the trunklid at no charge upon request.
The digital cockpit wraps intuitive control in exquisite furnishings. A range of leathers, nine trim options and 64-color LED ambient lighting, plus available active multicontour front seats, let you tailor the cabin to your driving desires.
Dual 12.3-inch screens include a reconfigurable digital instrument panel with exclusive AMG performance readouts. Available AMG Track Pace lets you graph your skills on the central touchscreen.
Offered in three finishes, the AMG Performance steering wheel features a new twin-spoke design with capacitive touch controls. The standard AMG DRIVE UNIT puts performance controls right on the wheel.
A groundbreaking concept in automobile cockpit control, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience advances to the forefront of innovation. MBUX integrates digital in-dash displays including a touchscreen, touch-sensitive controls, Bluetooth® hands-free and audio streaming, and an available industry-advancing voice control system that responds to your everyday speaking voice and phrasing of commands. You can set up multiple user profiles of favored settings, and groups of settings can be saved as themes or moods.
Power front seats feature intuitive, seat-shaped controls on the door, plus a 4-way power lumbar support. To set and save your ideal driving position, a memory system for each front seat recalls three stored positions for the seat, plus the positions of the 4-way power steering column and side mirrors for the driver.
Pneumatically adjustable lumbar, side and shoulder supports offer custom-tailored comfort. Active side bolsters can automatically increase lateral support in cornering maneuvers, or even in the event of a potential accident. Eight massage programs can soothe and rejuvenate your back and shoulders, including two spa-like "hot stone" massages, plus an "active workout" program to help strengthen your back and leg muscles.
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 0.0002-inch from entering the cabin.
Dual 12.3-inch displays include a central multimedia touchscreen and a reconfigurable instrument cluster in front of the driver. You can select any of four AMG-design instrumentation styles: Modern Classic, Sporty, Discreet and Supersport. Supersport can show extensive performance info, including a racing-inspired upshift prompt for the manual shift mode. Other data can include a warm-up menu, graphical G-force meter, and key engine info including hp/torque output and fluid temperatures.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
In the future, cars will be able to communicate with each other over the airwaves. In the E-Class, the future starts today. With its industry-leading Car-to-X Communication, every new E-Class can automatically alert a central notification system of certain dangers, from detected wheelspin to the use of hazard flashers or even windshield wipers. The system can then alert other drivers with Car-to-X via in-dash displays or announcements, allowing precautions to be taken before reaching the hazard.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
