Facelifted Mercedes-AMG E 53 Gets Drift Mode and Sportier Looks
Even though it refreshes a model which was only recently released, it does receive some new upgrades with some specific AMG features.
You will notice a new AMG grille, flat LED headlights, a new front bumper, LED taillights, a revised rear apron and diffuser and a new choice of AMG-specific wheels complete the design package. The bonnet gets dual powerdomes and an optional AMG Night Package adds dark high-gloss.
Under the hood, you will find the familiar 3.0-litre 6-cylinder engine with a 429 hp (320 kW) and 520 Nm of torque. The EQ motor adds an additional 21 hp (16 kW) and 250 Nm of torque. It is still capable of 4.5-second sprints to 100 km/h but a new AMG Drivers Package lifts the top speed from 250 km/h to 270 km/h.
Mercedes has developed the AMG Dynamic Select drive mode and AMG Ride Control+ air suspension to broaden the performance of the car. The Dynamic Plus package, featuring a drift mode and visual upgrades, is also available on the E53 for the first time.
