Mercedes-AMG launches its performance offering for the new GLE generation with the GLE 53 4MATIC+
Its centrepiece is the electrified 3.0-litre engine featuring twin-turbocharging and an electric auxiliary compressor. The 6-cylinder in-line engine generates 435 horsepower (320 kW) and delivers maximum torque of 520 Nm.
Its EQ Boost starter generator briefly provides an additional 16 kW of output plus 250 Nm of torque and additionally feeds the 48 V on-board electrical system.
The EQ Boost starter-alternator combines a starter motor and alternator in a powerful electric motor and is fitted between the engine and transmission. This innovation as well as the intelligent charging via an electric auxiliary compressor and an exhaust gas turbocharger all have the same goal: to enhance the hallmark AMG performance and driving dynamics, but also to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. And this move has been a successful one: The AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.3 seconds and achieves an electronically limited speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
