The open highway is calling, and it´s never looked more enticing. Welcome the Mercedes-AMG E 53 Cabriolet, a new performance convertible that delivers an irresistible invitation to conquer the blacktop.
The vehicle´s captivating appearance is driven by detail: a twin-blade radiator grille in silver chrome, an A-wing front bumper, AMG-specific side sill panels, high-gloss chrome on the round exhaust tailpipe. It practically demands to be taken on adventure. And within? A cabin that asserts luxury and control, with its AMG Performance steering wheel, widescreen cockpit display and sumptuous materials and colors — available in a wide variety of options and combinations.
But as dazzling as the E 53 looks, its true beauty may lie beneath the surface: a new electrified 3.0-liter engine, capable of 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. Which only begins to suggest its possibilities, because the cabriolet also boasts a 48-volt electrical system that aids the vehicle´s mechanics and makes an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque possible through an EQ Boost starter-alternator. It represents the next level in a happy relationship between power and efficiency, all in service of a drive that´s as refined as it is aggressive.
Alongside the new Mercedes-AMG E 53 Coupe and CLS 53, the E 53 Cabriolet premiered at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It arrives on streets nationwide later this year.
