Mercedes Benz has announced some new versions of its GLC, the Mercedes AMG GLC 43 SUV and AMG GLC 43 Coupe.
Both models are powered by a 3.0 litre V6 biturbo engine that produces 385 horsepower, this is up 23 horsepower over the previous model.
The Mercedes AMG GLC 43 SUV and Coupe come with a limited top speed of 130 miles per hour or 155 miles per hour depending on the specification. The cars have a 0 to 62 miles per hour time of 4.7 seconds.
“The new GLC 43 SUV and Coupe in their latest guises also feature the AMG- specific radiator grille, identifying them straight away as fully-fledged members of our diverse and highly successful SUV family. This mid-size performance SUV combines new, expressive design features with enhanced performance, the innovative MBUX infotainment system and absolute viability in everyday use. And, of course, its exceptional agility and sporty driving dynamics mean that we are able to meet our brand promise of “Driving Performance” in this segment, too”, says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes- AMG GmbH.
Both the SUV and the Coupe benefit from the 3.0-liter V6 engine’s 23 hp output increase, taking it to 385 hp. The peak torque of 384 lb-ft is available from 2500 to 4500 rpm. The higher output can be attributed to larger turbochargers and new software adjustments. The larger, stand-alone turbocharger units are mounted close to the engine and respond swiftly, thereby guaranteeing exceptional performance: it takes a mere 4.7 seconds for the SUV and the Coupe to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph. The top speed is electronically limited to 130 mph, unless equipped with the optionally available 21” wheels with Summer Performance Tires, which raise the top speed to 155 mph. The powerful AMG engine is visually identifiable by a red aluminum insert and AMG lettering on its engine cover.
