Mercedes-AMG GT gets a more affordable version

The four-door flagship AMG enters the US market in a more affordable version.

To date, for those who want a 4-door coupe Mercedes-AMG GT, the cheapest way to get it is the GT53 model for 99,990 dollars. With a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine combining with the 429 horsepower Mercedes EQ Boost hybrid hybrid, the GT53 was a great entry-level model in the GT four-door coupe lineup, but that will change soon.

According to the press service of Mercedes, the AMG GT will receive a new version of the entry-level GT43, previously available exclusively on the European car market, which is equipped with the same “turbo six” as the GT53 modification, but with less power.

The new AMG in its basic configuration actually produces the same amount of power as similar models from other brands, equipped with a 3.0-liter Inline-Six turbo engine with a soft hybrid assistant. Output power 362 hp and 369 Nm of torque supplemented by 21 hp and 184 Nm of torque from the EQ Boost soft hybrid system.

As with the other 4-door GT models, the GT43 transmits power via a 9-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels using the 4MATIC + all-wheel drive system. The GT 4-Door range will still include the mid-range GT53 and the flagship GT63 S with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with 630 hp. Mercedes promises acceleration to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds for the GT43, which is only 0.4 seconds slower than the more powerful GT53, but significantly inferior to the top-end GT63 S.
