The 2017 New York Auto Show, which took place on April 11, showcased a variety of vehicles from top manufacturers. As always, Mercedes-Benz incited awe and intrigue with the latest production models, as well as the debuts of upcoming arrivals. After a record-breaking first quarter, as well as the 50th anniversary of Mercedes-AMG®, the luxury automaker pulled no punches in terms of power, style, and panache. Take a look below to see what the Mercedes-Benz New York Auto Show feature brought to the table!

World Premieres

The New York Auto Show saw the debut of three GLC models—all of which promise hallmark luxury and classic AMG® performance. First is the AMG® GLC 63 SUV—a powerhouse with a hand-built AMG® V8 engine and an AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 9-speed transmission, resulting in a monstrous output of 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Design elements will include an AMG® Panamericana grille and a rear bumper with an integrated diffuser.

The forthcoming GLC 63 SUV will be accompanied by two sport coupes: AMG® GLC 63 and AMG® GLC 63 S. The latter is the more robust of the two, offering 503 hp, 516 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 3.7 seconds. This model will sport many of the GLC 63 SUV’s design features, as well as the fastback-style roof of a true Mercedes-Benz Coupe.

U.S. Premieres

In addition, Mercedes-Benz rolled out a few recently redesigned models for the first time in the U.S., including:

  • E-Class Cabriolet: Scheduled to arrive in late 2017, the E-Class Cabriolet rounds off the E-Class lineup with a biturbo V6 engine, AIRCAP® and AIRSCARF®, and, for the first time ever, available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive.

  • AMG® E 63 S Wagon: Also expected later this year, the AMG® E 63 S Wagon houses a hand-built AMG® biturbo V8 engine with 603 hp on tap, while offering all the comfort and space of a family-ready wagon.

  • AMG® GT Concept: Mercedes-AMG® celebrated its 50th anniversary by unveiling the AMG® GT Concept show car, which served as an introductory platform for the brand’s new high-performance hybrid system: EQ Power+.
