NEW 2021 MERCEDES-AMG GT 43 4-DOOR COUPE OFFERS AN ADDITIONAL ENTRY POINT TO THE AMG GT FAMILY

New in the U.S. for model year 2021, the AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe, starting at $89,900*, further expands the AMG GT family, combining AMG-developed dynamics with everyday usability, seating for four and a more accessible point of entry.


Mercedes-Benz USA today announced pricing and availability for the new 2021 AMG GT 43 variant of the thrilling Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. Starting at $89,900*, the Mercedes-AMG GT 43 is powered by a highly intelligent and efficient 3.0-liter inline-6 Turbo engine, featuring 362 hp, 369 lb-ft of torque and the sophisticated EQ Boost system, which adds up to an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The AMG GT 43 provides a compelling combination of exceptional driving dynamics with everyday usability, and includes all the highlights of AMG's top-tier GT 4-door coupe models, including: lightweight constriction, 4MATIC+ All- Wheel Drive with variable torque distribution, as well as striking and distinctive AMG exterior and interior design.


The AMG GT 4-Door is the third model to be developed directly by Mercedes-AMG, following the 2-Door AMG GT and the legendary SLS AMG. The new AMG GT 43 pairs a highly intelligent and efficient powertrain with a uniquely developed AMG chassis, and features the same high-level of standard equipment found in the AMG GT 53. Standard feature highlights for the 2021 AMG GT 43 include: AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9-Speed transmission, AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes, AMG Ride Control Sport Suspension, silver painted 6- piston front brake calipers, Burmester® surround sound system, electronically-deployable rear spoiler, as well as the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) Infotainment System, newly standard for model year 2021 GT 4-Door models. MBUX features a completely new user interface, learning-capable software, natural speech recognition (“Hey Mercedes”), and touchscreen capabilities.


At the heart of the new AMG GT 43 is the highly intelligent 3.0L Inline-6 Turbo engine with EQ Boost. EQ Boost utilizes stored electric power from the 48V battery through an Integrated-Starter-Generator, a powerful electric motor that combines the functions of a starter and an alternator. This EQ Boost unit assists the internal combustion engine with up to an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque at low engine speeds.


Thanks to the breadth of the AMG GT's model range and available option portfolio, the new AMG GT 43 can easily be configured and individualized in a manner similar to other AMG GT 4-door models, with a familiar set of available options and packages. These options include a variety of interior configurations, such as the standard two-place individual rear-seats, or the optional executive rear-seat package, as well as a wide variety of wheel options and the incomparable Burmester® High-End 3D Surround Sound System.


With the new AMG GT 43 Coupe, the AMG GT family expands even further to meet the needs of those looking for a vehicle that combines the impressive driving dynamics of the AMG GT models with everyday practicality. The AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe offers ample space for four passengers, with the unparalleled level of performance and luxury expected from Mercedes-AMG. U.S. deliveries are expected to begin in late 2020.
