Station wagons aren’t typically known for having high-level performance, but the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon far surpasses expectations for the segment. Combining the brand’s hallmark Driving Performance with high utility value and the intelligence of the E-Class, the E63 S Wagon delivers an incredible driving experience.
Fast Acceleration of Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon
The Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon is fast too, delivering a 0 to 60 acceleration time of just 3.4 seconds, which sets a new record in this class, along with a top speed of 180 mph. The high performance wagon comes with the versatile hand-crafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine, which takes peak output to a new level at 603 hp. The maximum torque of 627 lb-ft is likewise a new high.
Also, twin-scroll turbochargers are installed for the first time to further enhance the performance and response of the AMG 4.0-liter V8 engine. They reduce the exhaust gas backpressure and optimize the gas cycle, resulting in higher output, exceptionally spontaneous response and higher torque at low revs.
Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon and AMG Performance 4MATIC+ All-Wheel-Drive
Further enhancing the performance of the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon is the innovative AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system. It brings together the advantages of various drive configurations — with torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which is fully variable for the first time, ensuring optimum traction on any surface. In addition to traction and lateral dynamics, the all-wheel-drive system also improves the longitudinal dynamics for even more powerful acceleration.
