2011 Mercedes E63 Gets Bump to 525-HP
For the 2011 model year Mercedes has announced a short list of updates to its E63 AMG super-sedan, including increases in power and fuel economy. Under the hood, the E63 retains its 6.2-liter V8 engine, with a slight power increase to 525-hp, matching the output of the SL63. The E63 also now features the more advanced SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.
Despite the addition of 11-hp, the engine is actually significantly more efficient, with Mercedes claiming a fuel economy improvement of 12 percent compared to the 2010 model year car.
Other updates for 2011 include Artico leather on the dash and door panels and a piano black center console as standard equipment â€“ not optional like on the 2010s.
Mercedes has yet to officially confirm these updates for North America models.
