“No E-Class has ever been as versatile as the All-Terrain. The new model combines a striking look in SUV style with the intelligent space concept of the estate. This is coupled with lots of innovative safety features and the multi-award-winning E-Class interior”, says Ola Källenius, Member of the board of Management of Daimler AG and responsible for Sales and Marketing of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “With 4MATIC all-wheel drive as a standard feature and increased ground clearance thanks to the AIR BODY CONTROL multi-chamber air suspension the All-Terrain is a flexible all-rounder – for unpaved roads, family and leisure time.”

In the new E 63 4MATIC+ Estate and E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate, Mercedes‑AMG combines the brand’s hallmark Driving Performance with high utility value and the intelligence of the E‑Class. As in the Saloon, the 4.0‑litre V8 biturbo engine with an output of up to 450 kW (612 PS) and the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive deliver outstanding driving dynamics. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds sets a new record in this class. At the same time the engine is now even more efficient thanks to a cylinder deactivation system fitted as standard.

“The new AMG E 63 Estate combines our brand’s hallmark driving dynamics with high everyday practicality. It is not for nothing that the model has been a permanent fixture in the AMG portfolio for 40 years. The powerful engine and the intelligent all-wheel drive underpin our claim to always be at the forefront of development when it comes to performance,” states Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes‑AMG GmbH.

V8 biturbo with twin-scroll turbochargers.

The versatile AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine in the E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate takes peak output to a new level at 450 kW (612 PS). The maximum torque of 850 Nm is likewise a new high. It is available over a broad engine speed range of 2,500 to 4,500 rpm and so provides a feeling of effortless superiority in every accelerator pedal position. The E 63 4MATIC+ Estate is rated at 420 kW (571 PS) and has 750 Nm of torque.

The S version completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, the E 63 4MATIC+ in 3.6 seconds. Twin-scroll turbochargers are installed for the first time to further enhance the performance and response of the AMG 4.0-litre V8 engine. They reduce the exhaust gas backpressure and optimise the gas cycle, resulting in higher output, exceptionally spontaneous response and higher torque at low revs.

AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive.

Both estate models come with the innovative AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all‑wheel-drive system fitted as standard. This newly engineered, intelligent system brings together the advantages of various drive configurations: torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which is fully variable for the first time, ensures optimum traction on any surface. The driver can rely on a high level of handling safety.

An electromechanically controlled coupling connects the permanently driven rear axle variably to the front axle. The best possible torque distribution is calculated continuously. The performance estate can thus be driven in a continuously variable way from traction-oriented all-wheel drive to purely rear-wheel drive. In addition to traction and lateral dynamics, the all-wheel-drive system also improves the longitudinal dynamics for even more powerful acceleration.

Short shift times, high efficiency.

The new Estate boasts even more agile response than its predecessor. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed transmission is specially tuned to the requirements of both models, featuring re-engineered hardware and software. The software enables extremely short shift times and fast multiple downshifts while the double-clutching function makes for an emotive gearshifting experience. A wet clutch replaces the torque converter. It saves weight and optimises response, especially when accelerating or coming off the power.

Maximum lateral and longitudinal dynamics.

The agility and the high cornering speeds of the new models are down to the all‑new AMG suspension with full-support multi-chamber air suspension, which ensures exceptionally high levels of chamber stability, driving dynamics and steering precision. A four-link front axle design uses forged aluminium components with wishbones, strut rod and spring link. Independent wheel control and wheel suspension parts enable higher lateral acceleration, but minimal torque steer on the steering system. The likewise model-specific, completely redesigned rear axle was specially adapted to the higher vehicle dynamics. The suspension thus ensures hallmark E-Class comfort with high levels of precision and driving dynamics.

Driving Performance from every perspective.

Every detail of the exterior is designed to enable AMG Driving Performance to be experienced at first hand from every perspective. The distinctive, sporty design of the front end forward of the A-pillar demonstrates the lengths AMG goes to when it comes to development. More powerful-looking and 27 millimetres wider, the wheel arches accommodate the greater track width and the larger wheels on the front axle.

The side sill panels make the estate appear to sit lower on the road and elongate the overall line, culminating in a muscular rear end with an apron insert sporting a diffuser look and the two high-gloss chrome-plated twin tailpipe trims of the exhaust system. The hallmark AMG V8 sound has been tuned specifically for the Estate model.

Interior design: Sporty characteristics.

The interior reinforces the consistently dynamic bias with numerous specially designed details. The AMG performance steering wheel in black nappa leather is ideal for a sporty driving style. The driver and front passenger enjoy a secure position in the front sports seats, whatever the driving style, thanks to the improved lateral support. AMG performance seats with integral head restraints can be ordered as an option. All of the important information appears within the driver’s field of vision on the AMG instrument cluster. Dials in a carbon-fibre look and the distinctive typography lend the displays an especially sporty touch. The widescreen multifunction display with two monitors comes as standard in the S version, otherwise it is available as an option. With the widescreen display, the driver can choose from three display designs unique to AMG: Classic, Sport and Progressive.

Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate (S 213): The world premiere of the two performance estate models will be at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017.

Premiere: Geneva Motor Show 2017.

For improved traction and vehicle dynamics, the E 63 4MATIC+ Estate has a mechanical rear-axle limited-slip differential, while the S model comes with an electronically controlled version. The greatest benefit of the electronic rear-axle limited-slip differential is the even more sensitive and proactive control. The large-sized high-performance compound braking system is reliable, quick and fade-resistant, even under high loads.

Both models feature electromechanical speed-sensitive sports steering with a variable ratio, which impresses thanks to the rack ratio with precise and authentic feedback. The world premiere of the two performance estate models will be at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. Sales release is in April 2017, with the market launch scheduled to start in June 2017.

The new E-Class Estate. Masterpiece of Intelligence.

Dynamic, innovative and with a compelling space concept – the new E‑Class Estate is the most intelligent estate that Mercedes-Benz has ever built. In terms of the space on offer, the E-Class Estate continues to be one of the favourites in its segment: It has a cargo volume of 670 to 1,820 litres and, despite a much sportier roofline, the headroom and elbow room in the rear are in turn the best in this class.

Assembly several Unimogs for #MBSleepOut in the Black Forest

#MBSleepOut: A bed in the Black Forest.

Mercedes-Benz stages a very special outdoor event.

The great outdoors.

“The sky is important. When you’re lying in bed, you’re looking up at it.” Gunther Holtorf knows what he’s talking about. In 1990 he built a bed into his car and spent the next 26 years on the road. Almost 900,000 kilometres, through 177 countries. On his journeys Holtorf never spent a single night in a hotel. “We couldn’t leave Otto alone,” he explains, laughing. Otto is his Mercedes 300 GD, built in 1988. Practically a member of the family, a Guinness world record holder and probably the most famous off-roader in the world.

Mercedes Benz 914 wheel truck Mercedes Benz sleepout in the Black Forest

A convoy ready for adventure.

When Mercedes-Benz invited him to the Sleep Out, he was happy to accept. A dozen or so car fans met up for this very special trip into the heart of nature, and a night in a vehicle in the great outdoors. It also marked Otto’s final trip before heading to the Museum. Also present: three bloggers and three colleagues from the press.

Ulrich Dolde from the Motor Presse Stuttgart even brought along his own off-roader: a Mercedes 914 all-wheel-drive truck, which the journalist single-handedly converted into a camper van. Vehicles are provided to the other journalists – there are three Unimogs, an Actros, a Zetros, a Marco Polo and a G-Class to choose from, each model a specialist in its own right and ideally suited for the great outdoors.

Mercedes-Benz Unimog is plowing through the mud on the wheel test track, the Ötigheim gravel pit.

The mud bath awaits.

The meeting point is the gravel pit at Ötigheim, site of the Mercedes-Benz all-wheel-drive test ground. There is a lot of man-made nature and plenty of mud. Steep slopes, excavated watercourses, scree and potholes simulate almost every area of application. Some of the artificial hills have gradients of up to 110 %, which is equivalent to an angle of just under 50 degrees. Then the expedition heads into the Black Forest proper.

A ramble through the hills and a corral.

The actual expedition takes place in the Black Forest. The convoy works its way along the Kinzig valley, heading upwards – and at 280 metres they are in the middle of nowhere. Finally the group finds a spot to camp: on a grassy elevation with a magnificent view. The vehicles form a corral, a camp fire is started and the barbecue gets underway. And, of course, there are stories to tell from around the world: Gunther Holtorf has plenty – at least one from every place on earth.

 

The others chip in with their experiences, too. Apoorva Prasad, founder of India’s Outdoor Journal, tells stories of climbing in the Himalayas. The much-travelled Katrin Lehr from travelblog viel-unterwegs gets a few tips for her next trips through South America and Africa. There are plenty of things to bear in mind when you’re travelling alone in these areas. When Holtorf tells how patiently he waited for his entry visas to North Korea and Cuba to come through, the group have even more respect for him: After all, Otto was the first car with a foreign licence plate to go to either place.

Overnight in the Mercedes-Benz Unimog in the Black Forest
Wild Horses look past on the Mercedes Benz Sleepout for breakfast the next morning.

A night in a star-branded hotel.

The next morning brings unexpected visitors when a few horses drop by during breakfast. “Waking up to this view of the Black Forest, and now this. It’s bizarre and I love it,” Katrin Lehr comments happily. Now Otto’s final journey, to the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, begins.

But Gunther Holtorf is keen to carry on. He is already working away on a new model, another off-roader he’s assembling from two G-Classes. And it goes without saying that there’s going to be a bed in it. The sky is still important.
