In a notable shift, Mercedes-Benz is reconsidering its decision to offer four-cylinder engines in its AMG C 63 and GLC 63 models following lukewarm reception and dealer feedback. Initially introduced with four-cylinder powertrains, these models faced criticism from both enthusiasts and dealers, prompting Mercedes-Benz to reassess its strategy.

Recent reports suggest that the upcoming CLE 63 model will receive a twin-turbo V8 with mild-hybrid assistance instead of the previously planned plug-in hybrid turbo inline-four setup. This decision reflects Mercedes-Benz’s commitment to meeting customer expectations and addressing concerns raised by its global dealer network.

The V8 engine under consideration is likely the M177 version, known for its performance and versatility. With power outputs ranging from 577 horsepower to potentially higher figures, the M177 promises to deliver the exhilarating performance expected from AMG models.

While the transition from four-cylinder to V8 power may represent a departure from current trends, it aligns with Mercedes-Benz’s philosophy of offering a diverse lineup tailored to customer preferences. By listening to feedback and adapting to market demands, Mercedes-Benz aims to maintain its position as a leader in luxury performance vehicles.
