Mercedes AMG E63 S Wagon to Tear up Roads Stateside
We don’t get many souped up station wagons here in the US, so I’m excited to hear that Mercedes is bringing one over called the AMG E63 S Wagon. Of particular note is the wagon’s 4.0L Biturbo V8 under the hood making 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. That will haul lots of ass and and lots of stuff.
The engine is mated to a 4Matic AWD drivetrain and an AMG Speedshift MCT 9-speed transmission. Top speed is electronically limited to 180 mph and the car can go from naught to 60mph in a wicked fast 3.4 seconds.
This may be the most practical of all AMG cars with all that power and 35 cu ft of trunk capacity too. Inside, it has a fancy 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and semi-automated driving capability with Drive Pilot. The AMG E63 S Wagon will launch in the US this fall at an undisclosed price.
