Mercedes-AMG E-Class Wagon
Arguably the most technologically advanced car in its class is now more advanced. Still inarguably the most powerful, the 603-hp E 63 S might be the most extreme, irrational and irresistible wagon ever. Or the most practical, versatile supercar on earth.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers, engineers and racers who live for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform.
A Mercedes-AMG engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG technology is fueled by its racing success.
Attraction of traction
AMG Performance 4MATIC+ can turn 627 lb-ft of peak torque into pure thrust without sacrificing agility. Variable torque can maximize launch grip, power out of corners with authority, and even offer a full-RWD "Drift" mode. Disclaimer
Fingers on the pulse
The multiclutch AMG SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 9-speed offers lightning-quick gear changes, fingertip-close shift paddles, and a multiple modes. You can also enjoy multigear downshifts, automatic rev matching, and gear-holding in corners.
Your racing heart
Racing-derived tech powers the handcrafted 4.0L biturbo V8. A pair of twin-scroll turbos nests in the "hot V" to cut loss and lag. NANOSLIDE® cylinder walls help slash friction. It all cuts 0-60 down to 3.4 seconds. Disclaimer
The ultimate AMG soundtrack is played through four exhaust tips. The standard AMG Performance Exhaust features internal flaps that let you unleash a crackling crescendo of power, or tone it down so you don't wake the neighbors.
Cross-trained by a team of champions
An AMG E-Class benefits from 50-plus years of racing victory through the direct involvement of the same teams in its development. From chassis setups to the fine-tuning of its controls, AMG performance is defined by orchestrated, integrated teamwork.
Based on AIR BODY CONTROL, the AMG Sport Suspension turns pressurized air into poised handling and ride. 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 quickly dial in performance via controls on the console or the steering wheel-mounted AMG DRIVE UNIT. Five driving modes, one customizable, vary throttle feel, shifting, chassis and more from Slippery to Sport+.
Seats five, spoils one
The digital cockpit seats five with a decided driver focus. A spectrum 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 screens, multiple scenes
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.
Twin spokes, intuitive strokes
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.
Twenty inches, four styles
AMG® wheels are offered in four staggered-width 20-inch styles. Available with grey or matte black coloring, two of them are also lightweight forged alloy. Disclaimer
Carbon and black, front to back
AMG Carbon Fiber and Night Packages accent the E 63 S Wagon from front apron to rear diffuser. A new dark-tinted grille option deepens the blackout effect of the Night Package.
