BMW can’t even be bothered to sell any versions of its new 2017 5 Series wagons to us Americans at all, because we are not European scuba divers. But Mercedes is here to save the day with the all-new 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon coming to your local dealership this fall.
The E63 S wagon takes everything you love about the absolutely bonkers E63 S sedan, like the 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 that pumps out 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, and shoves it into a gorgeous wagon body. All that power is transmitted through a nine-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels, meaning the E63 S should hit 60 MPH in 3.4 seconds.
The wagon has all the “cool shit” from the sedan, like race mode, a locking rear differential, a lap timer app and of course, drift mode, because if you are going to drop this kind of coin on a 600+ horsepower wagon you better be able to get it sideways.
The Mercedes E63 S wagon is scheduled to make its world debut at the Geneva Auto Show and should be hitting our shores sometime in the fall of 2017. Pricing has not been announced, but considering the current E63 wagon stickers for about $130,000, the new one should be within the same ballpark.
Start saving your dollars or playing the lotto now kids, because this is the Benz to buy.
