Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 Goes to 275 KM/H in Acceleration Test
Inline-6 engines are making a comeback with Mercedes installing several on their new sedans, SUVs and coupes. This was the tip of the spear, the CLS 53 with the most powerful version.
Of course, you can get the same setup in the E53, as well as the AMG GT 53 4-door that we showed you a few days ago. But what makes this engine different? Lots of things, like the EQ Boost technology that consists of an e-motor with 22 HP and lots of torque boost – 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque.
Mercedes used to make a lot of inline-6 engines, but over the past few decades, it focused more on the V6. This was easier to engineer and assemble alongside its popular V8s. However, with ambitious new emissions targets being set, smaller engines need to be the ones that are good.
