2024 Mercedes-AMG E63 Could Suffer The Same Fate And Get Hybrid Four-Cylinder Says Report

We already know the upcoming Mercedes-AMG C63 range will be powered by the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder found in the little A45 S albeit with a lot more power thanks to the plug-in hybrid help but is the much larger E63 going to suffer the same fate?

According to a new report by Autocar, the next-generation Mercedes-AMG E63 could drop the twin-turbo V8 for a tuned-up four-cylinder with a big-battery plug-in hybrid system.

The UK publication claimed “Mercedes officials have hinted” the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged ‘M177’ V8 powering the current Mercedes-AMG E63 will be phased out, in favour of a version of the next-generation C63’s powertrain. Yes, that is the 2.0-litre turbo ‘M139’ four-cylinder paired with a high-output plug-in hybrid system and all-wheel drive.

Autocar claims the combined out will reach 600 hp (447 kW) but we think it will be close to or even above the 480 kW figure announced earlier this year to offset the additional weight of the battery pack.

Next Mercedes-AMG E63 to go four-cylinder as well?

A new report out of the UK has suggested that the upcoming Mercedes-AMG E63 will use a hybridised turbocharged 2,0-litre four-cylinder engine option much like the soon-to- be-revealed C63. Furthermore, hints about the entire W214 generation saloon have been detailed.

According to information sourced by Autocar, officials have hinted that the twin-turbocharged 4,0-litre V8 unit will no longer be used in the Mercedes-AMG E63.Taking its place up-front will be an emotive turbocharged 2,0-litre four-cylinder M139 unit with the support of a plug-in hybrid system for a total output of up to 447 kW.

The next-generation E-Class will focus on technology and refinement and introduce a more advanced electric architecture. With this, the sedan will support level three autonomous driving capabilities where allowed, together with 5G connectivity for high-speed over-the-air software updates.

We can expect the next Mercedes-Benz E-Class to adopt a front double-wishbone and rear multi-link suspension setup with the option of air suspension and rear-wheel steering. The wheelbase will also be elongated with an increase in the rear track to maximise interior space. Additional engine options will include the existing M254 four-cylinder petrol and OM654 four-cylinder diesel units with a starter-generator and 48V electrical system.

662kW Brabus 900 E63 AMG is a self-confessed wolf in sheep’s clothing

We certainly wouldn’t say that this menacing sedan lacks sinister presence, but Brabus unashamedly refers to its new beast as a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

That’s because what’s beneath the bonnet is the far scarier part of the equation. The standard Mercedes-AMG E63 S is already at the upper end of its game with outputs of 450kW and 850Nm, but the Brabus 900 sedan takes things to crazy new heights with a grand total of 662kW at 6200rpm, and 1250Nm from 2900rpm.

That, according to claims, is enough to get the Brabus 900 from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds and on to 200km/h in just 9.7s, while the top speed is electronically governed to 330km/h in order to “not overstress the tyres”.

As you’d expect from Brabus, there’s a lot more than just a software tweak going on here. For starters the displacement of the engine has been increased from 4.0-litres to 4.5-litres by boring out the eight cylinder engine block to 84mm and fitting it with corresponding larger pistons.

To help realise the engine’s full potential, the German tuner also developed a more efficient force-feeding system, which includes two Brabus high-performance turbochargers with a larger compressor unit and a special core assembly with reinforced axial bearings. This configuration enables a maximum boost pressure of 1.4 bar.

BRABUS 900 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Is A Supercar Slayer Packing 888 HP (662 kW)

For sharper handling, the tuner lowered the ride by 20mm.

With rumours suggesting the next-gen Mercedes-AMG E 63 S making use of a four-cylinder hybrid setup, individuals around the world may want to hang on to their current E 63 S for a bit.

If the power output of the standard car is getting a bit ‘tame’ for your liking, Brabus can come to the rescue to create an entirely new animal with the Brabus 900.

To squeeze every drop of power out of the V8, they increased the displacement from 4.0-litres to 4.5 by boring out the eight-cylinder block to 84 millimetres (3.3 inches). They then installed larger pistons, a custom billet crankshaft, and eight bespoke piston rods to lengthen the stroke to 100 mm (3.9 in).

On top of that, the tuner installed its own pair of turbochargers with a maximum boost pressure of 1.4 bar. The V8 now breathes through a new exhausts system fully made from stainless steel, while the modified intake improves air supply.

The result is a supercar slaying 888 hp (662 kW) and 1,250 Nm (922 lb-ft) of torque which is available from just 2,900 rpm. They have had to electrically cap the torque to 1,050 Nm (774 lb-ft) to protect the crucial components but even with this, it is able to sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds.
