2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC
Both the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S Coupe debuted at the 2017 New York Auto Show, putting on display their genuine commitment to power. The Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 runs on a 4L biturbo V8 mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that churns out a whopping 469 hp. This engine allows this luxury SUV to sprint to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. The Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S Coupe puts out even more power at 503 hp, and it reaches 60 mph in a swift 3.7 seconds.
“It’s no easy job designing an SUV to be highly sporty and dynamic while at the same time offering inherent extreme driving stability and efficiency,” Mercedes-AMG® CEO Tobias Moers said in a statement. “This required us to put our heart and soul, along with our many years of SUV expertise, into the development of this vehicle. The result is an SUV that can be driven with high precision and agility and which, if required, is equally at home on a high-speed lap of the race track.”
Mercedes-AMG® GT Concept Car
Also on display at the 2017 New York Auto Show is a four-door coupe concept sports car named the Mercedes-AMG® GT. The U.S. debut marks the 50th anniversary of Mercedes-AMG®, and it takes power to an entirely new level. It’s expected to generate around 800 hp, making it “the world’s fastest family car,” according to Moers.
Mercedes-Benz certainly stunned consumers with all it had to present at this year’s New York Auto Show. In addition to these two innovative models, the automaker also showcased the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet for the first time in the U.S., as well as the Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S Wagon.
