Mercedes-AMG announces new 53-series cars

Mercedes-AMG announces new 53-series cars

The highlight of the new models is of course their powertrain, which is comprised of a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine with 435hp and 383lb-ft (520Nm) of torque paired to an EQ Boost starter-alternator that can momentarily provide an additional 21hp (16kW) and 184lb-ft (250Nm) of torque. The EQ Boost starter-alternator also acts as a kind of mild-hybrid unit for the vehicles, motivating the auto during throttle-off cruising and allowing the engine to shut down and restart nearly imperceptibly, according to Mercedes. That high-zoot electrical system powers a separate electric intake compressor providing nearly no turbo lag, according to Mercedes, supplementing the conventional exhaust-gas turbocharger that's also fitted to the engine. However, there's also an electrified surprise under the hood. This "EQ Boost" system helps improve performance dramatically, with the company citing the new CLS53's estimated zero-to-60-mph time of just 4.4 seconds, with far more immediate throttle response. It recovers energy during deceleration for recuperative battery charging.

The beefier electrical system can be turned off for longer, stopped and started more often and even has a coast function so that the engine can be turned off on the move.

This is where the new 53-series gets interesting.

New York Governor Calls For Investigation Of State Senator Following HuffPost Report
Zweig and Goldberg said that Vladimer had invited Klein to a Seder dinner that evening, and the senator "politely declined". Liz Krueger, D-Manhattan, said that she had been approached for advice by Vladimer about two weeks ago.

"The basis for this is a contemporary drive configuration in the form of a six-cylinder in-line engine with electric auxiliary compressor, EQ Boost starter-alternator and 48 V on-board electrical system". The transmission sends power to all four wheels using an AMG-optimized version of Mercedes-Benz's 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

Mercedes says that the 53-series models will be available in the U.S. in late 2018. Additionally, the Dynamic Select modes also control the firmness of the air suspension. AMG-specific side sill panels are thrown in too, along with high-gloss chrome tailpipe trim at the rear, surrounded by a redesigned bumper. All models get sport seats and red seat belts, with the AMG Performance steering wheel as standard. The driver can choose one of three display styles - Classic, Sporty and Progressive - and can customize the information and views to personal preference, everything from oil temp to engine output to lateral and longitudinal acceleration. Pricing will be confirmed closer to the 2019 AMG CLS 53's release, later in 2018. The Affalterbach tuner also adds a new sports steering wheel as standard. The first models to arrive will be Edition 1 models, which come with unique interior treatments, numerous details in a copper color, and black nappa leather with copper contrasting stitching.
