2017 E-Class Wagon

Mercedes-Benz AMG® C 43 and C 63 sedans are exemplars when it comes to power and fuel efficiency, with respective 3.0L V6, 9-speed 4MATIC® and 4.0 V8, 7-speed engines and all-wheel and rear-wheel drives to showcase the proof. But when Mercedes-Benz kicked its AMG® class into higher gear with its Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S wagon, we at Mercedes-Benz of Modesto were revving our engines in anticipation.

And what better place to start on a performance vehicle than hand-crafting an AMG® 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine capable of an output of up to 603 horsepower? And you’re going to need all that juice, because Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S promises an acceleration from zero to 60 mph in up to 3.4 seconds, and with the efficiency-mindedness of a standard cylinder deactivation system.

Predecessors were commanding roadsters with AMG® SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) 9-speed sport transmissions. The E 63 S provides the added benefit of a wet clutch, and where traction’s concerned, its AMG® Performance 4MATIC®+ all-wheel drive system’s various drive configurations and fully variable front- and rear-axle torque distribution make for a handling dream. >E 63 S’s DRIVE PILOT shows us the Mercedes-Benz commitment to the future of intelligent driving, too: the wagon’s semi-automated driving capability puts the finishing touches on a drive girded by peace of mind.

E 63 S’s long-awaited release is happening in the fall of 2017. But it’s never too late to experience the thrill behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz AMG®-Class. Servicing the Stockton, Turlock, Manteca and Ceres areas, our dealer showroom, located in Modesto on McHenry Ave., will be happy to set you up with a test drive. Come see us today!
