53-Series Engine Power and Specs
Electrification is the word of the day for these vehicles. Each one has a 6-cylinder 3.0-liter electrified engine that has a turbocharger and an electric auxiliary compressor. When all is said and done, this engine is capable of delivering up to 429 horsepower and up to 384 lb-0ft of torque.
That said, those output numbers are for the engine without the EQ Boost starter-alternator. With that at play, an additional 21 horsepower can be pumped out, on top of an additional 184 lb-ft of torque. That feature also contributes to the 48-volt electric system onboard.
Of course, an outstanding engine requires an outstanding transmission. For that, these models have the AMG® SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission. The shift times for this transmission are lightning fast, even when using the paddle shifters. Moreover, you’re able to customize your drive with AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT to switch into Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual driving modes.
