2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S: First Look

© Mercedes-Benz USA2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Virtual Reveal
Since most 2020 auto shows have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, car companies are finding creative ways to have virtual presentations for new models. Today Mercedes-Benz took the wraps off an updated AMG E 63 S Sedan and Wagon. Any Mercedes model with AMG in the name is going to promise impressive levels of power and performance, and the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S is no exception. For the new year these high-performance luxury vehicles get updated styling, interior upgrades and improved creature comforts.

The E-Class continues as the midsize luxury sedan and wagon offerings from Mercedes-Benz, and the AMG versions reside at the head of the class with the highest level of amenities combined with extreme performance. One of the few wagons left in America, the E 63 S Wagon remains one of the most sought-after vehicles among automotive enthusiasts.

The primary changes for the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S occur at the front end. The distinctive AMG grille is in place, featuring vertical slats and a larger star logo in the center. The opening is larger than previously, which provides better cooling for the big V8 engine. The all-LED multibeam headlights have an updated, flatter style flanking the new grille. More aggressive wheel arches and twin power domes in the hood give the cars a more aggressive demeanor. The reshaped front bumper has three large air intakes and a front splitter that not only adds to the sporty styling, it also significantly reduces front-end lift.

At the rear of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S, designers gave the sedan flatter taillights that now extend into the trunk lid. A strip of high-gloss chrome runs across the top to connect the lights.

On the wagon this chrome strip extends to the edges of the vehicle, and the wagon’s lights have been updated to match the sedan. A reshaped rear bumper further emphasizes the additional width of these AMG variants, and large trapezoidal quad pipes sport a titanium finish.

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S has new wheels to further enhance the updated look. Aerodynamically optimized 20-inch 5-twin-spoke light alloy wheels are now standard equipment on the E 63 S.

Both the E 63 S Sedan and Wagon feature AMG sport seats with exclusive Nappa leather and AMG badging. For 2021 these powerful models get the latest MBUX infotainment system with two 12.3-inch display screens housed behind one piece of glass in what Mercedes refers to as a Widescreen Cockpit. Customers can choose display modes from Modern Classic, Sport or Supersport — the latter features a round tachometer in the center with a 3-D look to the screen. Also new is a twin-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel with better-integrated controls.

At the heart of these AMG variants is a handcrafted AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine that produces 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, teamed with an AMG Speedshift 9-speed automatic transmission. For drivers seeking more interaction, shifting can be performed manually via paddles on the steering column; the transmission mode can also be set to Sport, Sport+ or Race for even quicker automatic shifts. The acceleration stats of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S are impressive — the sedan sprints from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds; the wagon performs the same feat in 3.4 seconds. Not a typical luxury conveyance.

Power gets sent to the road via the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system. Torque distribution on front and rear axles provides excellent traction no matter what road surface conditions the car might encounter. Drivers can also put the E 63 S into Drift Mode, which sends all power to the rear wheels. An electronically controlled rear-axle limited-slip differential further improves driving dynamics.

The AMG Ride Control+ suspension system uses new three-chamber air suspension with an Adaptive Damping System to adjust the ride and driving dynamics based on driver preference or the current driving conditions.

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Sedan and Wagon are scheduled to arrive in showrooms in late 2020. Pricing will be released closer to the on-sale date.
