EQ Boost starter-generator in the AMG® 4.0-liter V8 BiTurbo Engine

A combination of a starter motor and an alternator in a single, powerful electric motor integrated between the engine and the transmission

The AMG® 4.0-liter VS engine works with the well-proven twin turbocharging, where the two exhaust—gas turbochargers are arranged between the cylinder banks. This “hot inside V” allows for a compact engine design and the immediate response of the exhaust-gas turbochargers.


With Seven DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs available including Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Individual, RACE, Trail and Sand allow for different driving experiences with a wide range of comfort and agile sportiness. The modes modify the response of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering.

  • “Comfort”: comfortable and fuel-efficient driving, e.g. thanks to early upshifts. Suspension and steering are set up for an emphasis on comfort.
  • “Sport”: sporty characteristics thanks to more agile response to accelerator pedal commands, shorter shift times, earlier and more precise downshifts owing to double-declutching. More dynamic suspension setup.
  • “Sport+”: extremely sporty characteristics thanks to an even more agile throttle response, double-declutching on downshifts and targeted torque interventions on upshifts with cylinder deactivation for optimized shift times. Increased idle speed for faster pulling away. An even more dynamic setup for suspension, steering and powertrain.
  • “Individual”: individual adjustment of the drive system, transmission, AMG® DYNAMICS, suspension and exhaust system. In addition, the gliding function is available in the “Reduced” and “Moderate” drive settings.
  • “RACE”: the “RACE” drive program is designed for highly dynamic driving on closed race circuits. In this program, all of the parameters are configured for maximum performance.
  • “Trail”: safe driving at maximum performance on soft, muddy or slippery ground. The suspension is raised to a higher level. From 43 mph the suspension is automatically lowered again.
  • “Sand”: the adjustments to the suspension and the 4MATIC®+ all-wheel drive are made for sporty driving on loose, sandy surfaces. The suspension is raised to a higher level. From 43 mph the suspension is automatically lowered again.

Drive programs are linked to the AMG® DYNAMICS agility control, which means that the handling characteristics can be matched with different requirements and driving conditions. AMG® DYNAMICS has different agility functions “Basic”, “Advanced”, “Pro” and “Master”, whose functions are automatically selected by the respective drive program. “Traction” and “Slide” levels come into effect in the Off-Road “Trail” and “Sand” drive programs when the ESP®  is deactivated.

MBUX infotainment system

The MBUX infotainment system comes standard in the GLE 63 S Coupe. Designed with a Supersport mode that provides AMG® specific information, such as the feature known as “shiftlight.”
