Mercedes-AMG’s 603HP E 63 S Is Even Sleeker & More High Tech For 2021

We can’t take more bad news in 2020, so when Mercedes-AMG announced that there was a chance its E 63 S Wagon might not make it back to the U.S. Market for 2021, we were a bit disappointed. Luckily, that didn’t turn out to be the case. With the recent announcement that the brand’s special-order sedan and sport wagon would stick around for the coming year, we’ve been placed in semi-good spirits, once again.

First, we’ll start with the sad news. The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S wagon and its four-door sibling won’t receive any updates to their powertrain, transmission, and all-wheel-drive systems. This means that the platforms’ 603-horsepower, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 is still paired to the company’s nine-speed automatic transmission, with the option for a rear-wheel-only “drift” mode at the touch of a button. While the cars’ performance figures haven’t changed, their external design certainly has. Each platform will take on Mercedes-AMG’s larger Panamericana grille design, all-LED multibeam headlamps, jet-wing aero, and a trio of enhanced lower intakes for better cooling, overall. Head inside, and a suite of technological enhancements — like the new Widescreen Cockpit, AMG Performance steering wheel, and an MBUX infotainment system — provide buyers with a luxurious revision of the platforms’ original layout.
