The power unit of the German model may appear in larger cars of the brand.

When automotive technology overlaps with other models in the manufacturer’s lineup, it usually happens that the best things get into smaller or cheaper cars. Mercedes-AMG has quietly revealed that its impressive 2.0-liter in-line turbocharged four-cylinder M139 engine will break into other larger AMG models.

In an interview that the head of AMG Tobias Moers gave at the Frankfurt Motor Show, it was reported that the power units of the AMG A45 and CLA 45 models will also be installed on other models of the brand. The M139 engine, capable of delivering up to 421 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, has also been developed for rear-wheel drive. However, this does not mean that the C45 will appear in the near future.

It is very likely that the M139 engine will be widely used, integrating perfectly into an electrified system and is likely to replace a number of six-cylinder engines in 43 and 53 models. Mercedes-Benz also added that 63 models in the future will still have a power of about 600 hp, even when using a hybrid system.

Thanks to its ability to extract so much energy from a much smaller space, the path to more hybrid transmissions with impressive performance is the next likely step for the German manufacturer.
