The Mercedes-AMG E43, boasting a 3.0-liter V6 Biturbo engine, will represent the most powerful variant of the luxury sedan when it hits dealerships by early 2017. This high-powered six-cylinder engine delivers an output of 396 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque.
The AMG Performance 4MATIC four-wheel drive combines optimum traction with high agility on the AMG E43, thanks to rear-biased torque distribution with a front-to-rear ratio of 31:69 percent. The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with shorter shift times, AMG AIRMATIC Adaptive Sport Suspension and the more direct steering ratio also provide for signature AMG Driving Performance.
On the AMG E43, Mercedes-AMG has upgraded the six-cylinder engine’s output by 34 hp to 396 hp with the aid of two larger turbo chargers and sophisticated AMG software. This package guarantees performance on par with many a sports car: the new AMG E43 achieves a 0-60 time in 4.5 seconds, while its top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
