With an updated striking design, increased options for individualization and the MBUX infotainment system, Mercedes-AMG is enhancing the E 53 Sedan. The completely redesigned front view lends the performance E-Class an even more powerful appearance. The AMG-specific radiator grille with its A-shaped contour along with redesigned LED headlamps reinforces the wide stance. Extensive design measures make the rear view of the sedan appear even more muscular thanks to the two-piece taillamps, new rear bumper and the new diffuser insert. The interior shows a sportier character through the large displays, new AMG Performance steering wheel and AMG-specific MBUX functions.
The electrified, AMG-enhanced 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with a turbocharger and an electric auxiliary compressor generates an output of 429 hp and produces a peak torque of 384 lb-ft. Its EQ Boost starter-alternator briefly provides an additional 21 hp of output, plus 184 lb-ft of torque and also feeds the 48 V on-board electrical system. Other technical highlights include the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission and AMG Performance 4MATIC+variable all-wheel drive system.
“Our revised E 53 is extensively enhanced, the visual update offers our customers real added value, which is underscored by our hallmark AMG grille. With the electrified 3.0-liter engine we have retained the proven drivetrain. The extensively revised suspension now offers even more of a range between long-distance comfort and precise dynamism,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Management Board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
