Mercedes performance division seems to be playing with an E-Class model yet again. This time, however, the automaker isn’t working on the updated E63 sedan, but on something much better. Ladies and gentlemen, the camouflage hides a revised and refreshed 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon – the car that offers really wild performance and luxury, as well as a respectable amount of space inside.
Since it has been spied testing at the Nurburgring track, it is safe to assume that the manufacturer is checking the ability of the engine under the hood. However, bearing in mind that the model is approaching the midway point in its life cycle, we are pretty sure that there won’t be big surprises down there. More precisely, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon will continue to exploit a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, which will reportedly be pushed up with a mild-hybrid system. The EQ Boost setup should not have any influence on the car’s output though. Instead, this will be an emissions-lowering measure only. Nobody knows for sure whether the superb wagon is getting any extra horses or not. However, in theory, the impressive V8 could be additionally squeezed, so there could be up to 639 horsepower in total. If so, then there will be no worry, since the biggest competitor – the Audi RS6, stays limited to 600 hp.
Styling-wise, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon will receive most of the changes in the front end. The camouflage hides a pair of new LED-treated and angry-looking headlights borrowed from the latest GLE crossover, as well as a widened Panamericana grille that has been fitted with additional vertical slats. All the way down, the top-notch wagon sports a redesigned front bumper with new air intakes. Some sources even claim that the updated car hides a reshaped hood beneath the wrapping, but we are not so sure. What we know for sure is that the rear end gets new exhaust tips and revised taillights. At sides, the prototype reveals new and large wheels coupled with beefy ceramic brakes.
The spy shots don’t reveal what’s changed inside of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon, though we are absolutely sure that the automaker hasn’t skipped the opportunity to add the latest MBUX infotainment system. The multimedia that exploits natural-speak voice activation comes paired with a large touchscreen and operates like a smartphone.
The updated wagon will be introduced either late this year or in early 2020. Either way, we are looking forward to seeing the official debut of this really remarkable wagon.
