Guess Which AMG Sport Models Mercedes-Benz Will Unveil at 2015 NAIAS
The people at Mercedes-Benz decided to use the public’s focus during the 2015 Detroit Auto Show to unveil the new AMG Sport models. The new AMG Sport line will be nested between the regular Mercedes-Benz models and the upscale AMG cars. Envisaged as a useful and attractive addition to the automaker’s palette, the new AMG Sport line will bring some new attractive examples of the famous German engineering. The 2015 NAIAS will, according to the teaser image, host the premiere of the Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport and the GLE Coupe AMG Sport. Those two models are the first which will be introduced with the AMG Sport badging, but the automaker has really ambitious plans. There are really just a couple of segments where Mercedes-Benz won’t have at least one AMG Sport version. But, what can we expect of the models which will be introduced in Detroit in January?
2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport – How Much Power It Can Deliver?
The C-Class version with the AMG Sport flair will be the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport. Placed between the C400 and the C63 AMG, this particular model will probably find its audience. It’s going to be powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine which comes with boosted power output. The engine will probably deliver around 370 horsepower. It isn’t drastically better than the power output of the C400’s engine, but it can’t be compared with the output of the C63 AMG’s 4.0-liter V8 engine. As for the drive, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport will have standard rear-wheel drive, but there will be 4Matic four-wheel drive available as an option.
What About 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe AMG Sport?
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe AMG Sport will be based on the Concept Coupe SUV which was introduced at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show. The coupe SUV will probably have a boosted V6 engine which will be more powerful than the version installed in the stock GLE Coupe, but significantly less powerful than the AMG performance version powered by either a V8 or a V12 engine.
