A Mercedes-AMG engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG technology is fueled by its racing success.
A twin-scroll turbo and electric auxiliary compressor pump up the high-tech inline-6 to 429 hp, 384 lb-ft, and 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds. Electric EQ Boost can add 21 hp of its own. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed offers multiple modes and manual paddle shifts.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in your car's performance via controls on the console or the standard steering-wheel AMG DRIVE UNIT. Five drive programs, from Slippery to Sport+ to custom Individual, fine-tune the throttle, shifting, chassis and more.
The AMG Sport Exhaust turns the engine's sound into a symphony. Multimode internal flaps in the available AMG Performance Exhaust let you unleash the fury, or mellow down the sound.
The power of the E 53 extends to its AMG Performance brakes. Substantial 4-piston calipers are paired with perforated and ventilated 14.6-inch front discs.
Based on AIR BODY CONTROL, the AMG Sport Suspension turns pressurized air into agile poise. It can adapt in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. It's self-lowering, self-leveling, and equal parts tenacity and composure.
Fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ can apportion torque to the wheels that can best turn grip into go. From confident cornering to assertive acceleration, 4MATIC+ can vary from 50/50 up to 100% RWD.
The cylinder walls of the diecast aluminum block are created in an AMG-patented process that benefits performance, efficiency and durability. NANOSLIDE® technology uses a twin-wire arc spray to coat the bores with an ultrahard layer that's honed to an ultralow-friction, mirror-like finish. Without the added weight of cylinder liners, the bores and lightweight forged pistons are matched with even greater dimensional precision, for more immediate and consistent power over a longer service life.
Vertical grille bars evoke a deep racing legacy. Aggressive lower bodywork and sleek LED lighting slice the wind and darkness. Top up or down, extensive aerodynamic refinement enhances roadholding and riding comfort.
Standard 19-inch AMG® wheels, or any of four 20-inch options, take a confident stance on handling. Wider rear wheels enhance grip at launch, with front wheels sized for crisp steering feedback.
AMG Carbon Fiber and Night Packages further embolden the E 53 Cabriolet. A new dark-tinted grille option deepens the blackout effect of the Night Package.
The 3-layer "acoustic" soft top is meticulously tailored for long-lasting beauty and a remarkably quiet cabin. A bonded butyl layer fends off the elements while keeping the top-up profile smoother. At speeds of up to 31 mph, the one-button power top takes less than 20 seconds to vanish under a sleek cover that elegantly unites the cabin and rear deck, while leaving ample trunk space. Four stylish colors are available. Among its generously sized windows is a heated rear window.
Precise attention to aerodynamic refinement culminates in a functional rear lip spoiler. AMG E 53 in designo Brilliant Blue Magno with 20-inch AMG twin 5-spoke wheels pictured above.
Four round tailpipes play the performance symphony of the triple-boosted inline-6 engine. AMG E 53 in designo Brilliant Blue Magno with 20-inch AMG twin 5-spoke wheels pictured above.
Top up, a widescreen digital cockpit teams stunning displays with intuitive touch and voice controls. Power down the top and its breathtaking style goes on display to an admiring world.
Dual 12.3-inch displays include reconfigurable instruments with exclusive AMG performance readouts and a central touchscreen. Available AMG Track Pace lets you chart your skills on the central touchscreen.
Offered in three finishes, the AMG Performance steering wheel features a new twin-spoke design with capacitive touch controls. The standard AMG DRIVE UNIT puts performance controls right on the wheel.
A spectrum of leathers, nine trim options and four soft top colors let you express your style. Thoughtful luxuries like 64-color LED ambient lighting let you suit your mood, or set a new one, anytime.
A network of LEDs let you create cabin ambience to suit your mood. Edge-lighting glows at three levels: beneath the "waveform" dash and door trim, behind the in-dash screens, and in the footwells. Along with 64 selectable colors, three cabin zones and adjustable brightness, numerous programs let you enjoy two or five colors at once, either static or slowly changing. Internal illumination of the dash vents can match the chosen motif, or briefly respond to your climate-control adjustments.
Rain-sensing windshield wipers automatically adjust the intermittent wiper frequency based on the amount of rainfall.
The Remote Start feature lets you start your car's engine from the Mercedes me connect Mobile App on your smartphone. In extreme weather, it's a great way pre-condition the cabin comfort by giving the climate control up to a 10-minute head-start on your arrival. It's part of Mercedes me connect services, and three years of its benefits come standard.
Supple, enduring and leatherlike MB-Tex is accented with DINAMICA microsuede seat inserts and red topstitching on the seats and throughout the cabin. Red seat belts are included, while black seat belts are a no-charge option.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
In the future, cars will be able to communicate with each other over the airwaves. In the E-Class, the future starts today. With its industry-leading Car-to-X Communication, every new E-Class can automatically alert a central notification system of certain dangers, from detected wheelspin to the use of hazard flashers or even windshield wipers. The system can then alert other drivers with Car-to-X via in-dash displays or announcements, allowing precautions to be taken before reaching the hazard.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
MotorTrend® has awarded the E-Class its highest honor for 2021. The entire line, its editors praise, "makes everyone feel special, delivers the best experience, and stands out from the rest of the segment. It does everything right, and does it all naturally."
At most driving speeds, radar technology helps sense when a vehicle enters your blind-spot area. Blind Spot Assist can then automatically alert the driver via an illuminated icon in the appropriate side mirror. The system can also give an audible warning if the driver activates a turn signal while a vehicle is detected in the blind spot.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
The advanced Surround View System uses cameras in all four directions to compose a single, live overhead view of your immediate surroundings. Displayed on the central in-dash screen during low-speed maneuvers, it helps you avoid obstacles as you negotiate tight spaces, whether you're moving forward or backing up. Enhanced functionality now reveals virtually the entire length of the car along each side.
MAGIC VISION CONTROL® features wiper blades with laser-cut holes that emit a highly precise spray of washer fluid directly in front of the moving wipers. The system eliminates the brief, vision-obscuring spray across the full windshield, and minimizes the overspray and runoff that can reach the passengers during top-down driving. And since the washer fluid reservoir, lines and even the wiper blades are heated, it's also extremely effective in cold weather.
Using the ultrasonic, radar and camera-based technology of Active Parking Assist, Blind Spot Assist and the Surround View System, this innovation helps audibly and visually alert the driver to approaching cross-traffic when backing out of a parking space at low speed. Especially helpful if your view is obstructed by vehicles or structures, the system can also apply the brakes. The sensors can also help detect if the driver has engaged the wrong gear or pedal for exiting a confined space.
