Wagon fans rejoice: The Mercedes-AMG E63S Wagon is back in business.
So this new E63 wagon isn’t exactly new. It has the same 4.0-liter Twin-Turbo V8 with 603 horsepower, AWD, and a 9-speed automatic, just like the old one. What’s new in this one though is styling. AMG decided to crank up the aggressiveness on the exterior styling to 11. With a racecar style grille, a revised rear end, and a new matte blue paint color, the E63S Wagon is ready to drop the kids off at school and immediately hit the track after. With a claimed 3.1-second 0-60 time and a 190 MPH top speed, this wagon is right on par with the Audi RS6 Avant that is already ballistically fast. On the inside, the E63 gets a new Haptic steering wheel, a drive mode wheel attached to the steering wheel, and “magic buttons” Which are simply buttons with screens in them that change with the settings of the vehicle.
The new E63 Wagon is not cheap. Pricing should start around $115,000, and should escalate into the $180,000 range.
