Following in the footsteps of its direct rival, the BMW M5, Mercedes also goes on a facelift for its powerful E63 AMG.
With the newly renovated E-Class 2021, it was almost logical that the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S was also updated. It is well said that when something works you do not have to change it, so the changes are rather discrete.
Available in sedan and station wagon bodywork, this car is distinguished by receiving a Pan-American style grille, where the Mercedes logo grows in dimensions. In addition, we find larger air intakes. The LED headlights, front and rear have been revised, with new bright graphics.
The wheel arches are widened by 27 millimeters, while the wheels are offered in 19- or 20-inch sizes. Thereafter, they appear to be all changes.
Behind the scenes, the E 63 S remains almost unchanged except for the integration of a new AMG Performance three-link steering wheel. A new black leather option for the seats is added, as well as the MBUX system with specific AMG functions. It has two screens of 10.25 inches (12.25 inches in the S version), one for the instrument panel and the other for the infotainment system.
Mechanically, the E 63 S continues to use a four-liter, twin-turbo V8 that generates 603 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque, less powerful than the BMW M5 Competition, but providing more torque. It is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system that can operate in rear-drive mode. It has adaptive air suspension and an electronically controlled limited slip mechanical differential.
The renewed Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 2021 will begin its commercial journey later this year.
