There is no guy in the world who doesn’t know what is Mercedes Company. This German car manufacturer is probably the top Company in the whole planet when it comes to cars. They boast so many vehicles in almost every segment and the most significant thing is that each model they had is quite remarkable. When they have to announce some news about any new model, or when they have to release some new car, everyone’s is excited and all attention is paid to them.
As we know, the newest generation of popular S-Class debuted back in 2013 and brought a lot of novelties and innovations on the markets around the world. Today, we have excellent news for all Mercedes fans considering the fact that Company announced that the both, base S-Class, as well as AMG, will get a mid-cycle refresh for 2018. Today, we will talk about the new 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 4Matic variant. From spy photos it’s clearly that Germans do not want to hand over the leading position in the segment of luxury sedans.
2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 Facelift
From recent spy shots, it’s obvious that the external of the most recent Mercedes-AMG S63 2018 looks quite extraordinary with well-known body lines. At the first glance, we can see how luxury and extravagance this model is. Some visual updated are more or less in line with the regular S-Class. Compared to the current version, we can see some redesigns from the outside, and it begins from the most attractive part and that is the front. At the front side, it should be three major changes. The headlights are a bit different and it will receive new layout and it will feature modified LED strips and re-positioned turn signals. That was the first change and the second one is the grille. Instead of four double horizontal slats, it will have three.

That looks simple and elegant at the same time. Also, these slots will no longer have a connection with the frame at the edges. The third change on the new 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 is the rumor, which we have heard from our sources. It will be at the front fascia, the front bumper exactly. Rumors suggest that we can anticipate bigger air intakes located on the sides and modified middle vent and splitter. At the rear side, there will be probably new LED clusters, modified rear bumper and probably newly exhaust pipes. Also, at the sides, this model will ride with the new wheels design(10-spokes).

The interior design of the eagerly awaited model will be luxury and very comfortable. When it comes to design, everything will remain more or less the same as in the current model, but when it comes to the technology and safety system we can definitely expect improvements. First of all, probably the most obvious change inside is the brand new steering wheel that will have touch-sensitive buttons. That means that all drivers can easily control features of the infotainment only with their thumbs.

We can also expect Drive Pilot. If you don’t know about this system, this system provides following the car in front at speeds of up to 130 mph. It uses automatic accelerating and braking. The forthcoming 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 should get an infotainment system with the new software, which will be followed by a standardly big display. The comfort of the cabin is on the highest level so far. All the seats will be adjustable in so many ways, and all seats will have Nappa upholstery as well as AMG badges on it.

Engine and Performance
Beneath the hood, the refreshed S63 will be powered by a brand new engine which is phenomenal. The word is about the twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine, and this engine will replace old 5.5-liter V-8. The newly engine will be capable of delivering up to 600 horsepower and 680 pound-feet of twist which is 23 horses and 16 lb.ft improvements compared to the current engine. One more change is all wheel drive type that will be standard from now on. Also, the 4Matic moniker will be most likely dropped. Besides the new engine and the new drive type, this model will also get automatic transmission system(9-speed) for easier and quicker shifting. The acceleration from 0-60 mph will be better – 3.6-3.8 seconds while the top speed will remain the same – 155 mph(electronically blocked).
Price and Release date
The release date of the new Mercedes-Benz AMG S63 2018 sedan will be probably next year, at the second half. When we talk about prices, this model will have a starting price of around $147.000 before options.
