The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Convertible have no V8 engine. The Mercedes-AMG E 53 tops the range.
The company believes that top performance E 63 versions are not needed for two-door E-Class. The carmaker already has the Mercedes-AMG E 63 sedan and wagon (will enter the market later 2020), and smaller Mercedes-AMG C 63 coupes and convertibles.
Like the Sedan and All-Terrain (wagon), the next E-Class Coupe and Convertible got a new 3.0-liter inline-six turbo engine with a 48-volt EQ Boost mild hybrid system that adds 21 hp and 184 lb-ft to achieve the peak output of 362 hp and 369 lb-ft in the E 450.
The Mercedes-AMG E 53’s powertrain generates 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. All two-door E-Class models come with a 9-speed automatic gearbox. All-wheel drive is optional for the E 450 and standard for the AMG E 53.
Unlike the sedan, there will be no plug-in hybrid variants for the coupe and cabrio.
The E-Class two-doors are style-wise, they have a revised Panamericana grille, new wheels, lights and paint colors, a new steering wheel, the latest MBUX.
The convertible version can boast Mercedes’ Airscarf neck-warming system and sun-reflecting leather.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Convertible will go on sale in the United States later this year.
Prices have not been announced yet. The 2021 model will be probably more expensive than the 2020 cars which cost from $65,345 (coupe) and $72,395 (cabrio).
