Engine Options and Performance in the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a force to be reckoned with. While there are plenty of stellar options to choose from within the entire Mercedes-Benz lineup, the E-Class has the privilege of having the most body styles available. With a sedan, coupe, cabriolet, and even a wagon to choose from, and a variety of trim levels and engine options between them, there’s something for everyone within the E-Class lineup. Today we’re specifically looking at the engine options and performance in the coupe lineup. Check them out below!
The entry-level coupe for the E-Class will be a big step up from the entry-level E-Class sedan. Available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options, the E 450 Coupe sports a 3.0L V6 engine under the hood that delivers 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Despite those figures, the E 450 still stays relatively efficient with 20 city/28 hwy mpg*. As with the E-Class sedans, it also comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission while offering ECO Start/Stop, DYNAMIC SELECT®, and a lowered suspension with selective damping system.
Looking for even more power and performance? Try the performance-enhanced AMG® E 53 Coupe. The 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine comes with EQ boost and an electric auxiliary compressor to optimize power and efficiency, and the results speak for themselves as the AMG® E 53 Coupe grinds out 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque as well as a 0 to 60 time of just 4.3 seconds. It’s worth noting that the more powerful AMG® E 53 Coupe actually gets slightly better fuel efficiency than its predecessor with 21 city/28 hwy mpg*. Like the E 450, it comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Other performance features include AMG DYNAMIC SELECT®, AMG® Sport Suspension based on AIR BODY CONTROL®, ESP Dynamic Cornering Assist, and much more.
The E-Class is a versatile car, and the coupe lineup is probably the sportiest of the bunch. Learn more about the E-Class by contacting the team here at Mercedes-Benz of Gilbert or schedule a test drive on our website today!
