The Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse AMG, belonging to the prestigious W222 generation, prides itself as an exemplification of luxury and power in German automotive technology. Model years 2017 to 2019 saw a significant redesign that turned heads in the high-performance sedan segment. Corresponding with its Sleek Coupe Series, this marvel of engineering offers seating for four, an undeniably modern look, and exceptional performance wrapped into one impressive package.
At the heart of the S-Klasse AMG is a roaring V-type 8-cylinder engine that uses direct injection to optimize fuel usage and enhance power output. This petrol engine boasts a whopping 612 hp at 5,500 rpm with the maximum torque turnover at 2,750 rpm, which enables not only rapid acceleration but the smooth delivery of power for effortless highway cruising and overtaking. This 4.0 AT 4WD beast is equipped with a turbine as its boost type, providing an extolled sense of speed and power unparalleled in its class.
The S-Klasse AMG doesn’t compromise performance for luxury. The vehicle comes built with a nine-speed automatic transmission, which allows for smooth transitions between gears and highly responsive handling. Further enhancing its driving dynamics is a wheel size of 255/45/R19 meaning robust traction in all conditions and a top-speed of 155 mph. The independent, pneumatic element back suspension ensures a comfortable ride, even at higher speeds. Reassuring for those long road trips is the capacious 21 gallons fuel tank that, with a fuel grade of 98, ensures excellent mileage and fewer stops at the station. Exhibiting the same level of design prowess inside and out, the AMG truly embodies the Mercedes-Benz spirit of ‘the best or nothing.’ It’s not just a car; it’s a statement.
