Mercedes-Benz E63 details:

The 2012 model year marks the return of the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG wagon to the U. sphere, featuring a traditional panorama roof and rearview camera. Like the well-known, high-performance Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG sedan, the wagon features a new hand-built 5. 5-liter direct-injection AMG V8 motor which generates 518hp and 516 lb-ft of torque as well as the proven AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7- speed Multiclutch Transmission (MCT).

With 302 horsepower and 273 lb. -ft. of torque, the 3. 5-liter V6 motor has 13 percent more performance than last year. Based on an completely new block with 60-degree cylinder angles, the latest V6 doesn't need a balance shaft for smooth operation. Like the motor that preceded it, the motor has aluminum cylinder heads, pistons and cylinder block (with cast-in Silitec cylinders), as well as a special forged metal crankshaft, connecting roads and valves.

Based on its highly successful 5. 5-liter predecessor, the new 4. 6-liter V8 motor has a smaller displacement but generates 402 horsepower and 443 lb. -ft. of torque - more than the motor it changes. Its smaller displacement is more than offset by the performance boost of its twin turbochargers - one for every bank of cylinders. Piston crowns are four millimeters thicker to handle the higher combustion pressures, while shorter connecting rods enable existing block dimensions to be retained.
