2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S gets visual update and not much else

Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2021 is refreshed in the middle of the cycle, it is only natural that it extends to the most powerful Mercedes-AMG E 63 S in sedan and car form. The model year update is practically only a visual update with unchanged mechanical and technological features.
At the front, the sedan and car share a more aggressive panel with a main grille that opens more at the bottom. The headlights are also lower and wider at the bottom to emphasize the aggressive look. The lower outboard grilles have been opened further for additional cooling performance, although Mercedes has not indicated how much more cooling they offer.
The rear of the E 63 S is only really changed in the sedan. It gets the thinner, wider taillights of the other sedans that extend into the trunk lid. These match the car that always had taillights of this design. However, the car gets new internal lighting elements.

The interior of the E 63 S is almost unchanged except for a new steering wheel with three sets of two spokes each. There is a new upholstery option for black and "titanium" for the interior, and three new paint colors are available: graphite gray, cirrus silver and brilliant blue, the latter being matte.
Mechanically, the E 63 S continues to use a 4.0-liter V8 with two turbochargers that delivers 603 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. This is less powerful than the BMW M5 Competition, but offers more torque. It exceeds both the performance and the torque of the Audi RS 6 Avant. It is coupled with a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, which can be operated in full rear-wheel drive mode. As standard, it has adaptive air suspension and an electronically controlled mechanical limited slip differential.
The price of the E 63 S has not yet been announced. We expect it to be close to the current base price of the sedan of around USD 108,000 and the current base price of the car of around USD 112,000. Both versions will be available for sale later this year.
