Highpoints of the Mercedes-Benz New York Auto Show Feature
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!
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.
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+.
