New 2017

The sports car family is expanding. When the new 550-hp Mercedes-AMG GT C coupe and roadster arrive at U.S. dealerships this fall, there will be four coupes and two roadsters in the lineup. On the coupe side, the GT C is positioned between the GT S and the top-of-the-lineup GT R. The GT C initially will be available exclusively as a special Edition 50 model with a 50-car run for each body style. The 577-hp GT R coupe and the base GT roadster also are new and on sale this fall. The GT and GT S coupes also got a light freshening this year for the 2018 model year.

New 2018

Mercedes-AMG GT four-door will come in three variants -- two with a V-8 and one with an inline-six engine -- and go on sale early next year in the U.S. The most powerful V-8 entry will produce 630 hp. The top-of-the-line variants are the GT 63 with a 577-hp hand-built 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 and the GT 63 S with a 630-hp hand-built 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8. The V-8s have cylinder deactivation to improve efficiency and reduce fuel consumption. The GT 53 will be powered by a 429-hp AMG-enhanced 3.0-liter turbocharged in-line six. It will have an electric EQ Boost feature enabled by a starter-alternator between the engine and transmission offering additional output of 21 hp. The GT 53 also has a 48-volt electrical system. U.S. variants come only in four-seat configurations, though a five-seat configuration will be available in other markets.
