Mercedes decided to launch E63 AMG Wagon in America as part of its 2012 range update, after they realized how people like the Cadillac CTS-V there.
The E63 Wagon is such a sweet car because it’s so practical you can use it as a delivery car, so comfortable you can use it as an everyday family car, and it just happens to go like the clappers. Before this the car used to get a 6.2 liter V8, but this yer Mercedes is offering the newer, more efficient 5.5-liter twin-turbo direct-injection V8 engine with 518 hp, 516 lb-ft of torque.
It also can be had with ECO Stop/Start technology mated to the AMG 7-speed MCT and the new 19-inch AMG 10-spoke wheels. Optional Performance Packages is also available to raise the power to 550hp/590lb-ft in case the standard is not enough for you. The car also features a panoramic roof which boosts it appeal as a family bus.
The thing is, you never buy an estate because you want one, but because you need one. And those who ‘need’ a wagon out practicality at the top of their list. Given the choice we would go for the sedan E63 every time.
