Report: Next-gen Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG could go all-wheel drive only

It’s no doubt all-wheel drive has grown significantly in popularity, offering people versatility with what they drive, where they can drive it, during all times throughout the year.

But even from a performance standpoint, all-wheel drive systems have gotten lighter and more efficient, allowing for amazing levels of grip and as a result, faster performance figures.

That said, after speaking with AMG’s Tobias Moers, Motoring in Australia heard the next E63 AMG could go 4MATIC only along with the usual 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 from the AMG GT and the C63 AMG.

Even in Germany, on the Merc’s home turf, demand for the all-wheel drive models skyrocketed with all-wheel drive models accounting for almost 95 percent of all E63 sales in the country.

The next-generation E-Class is scheduled to be revealed in 2016 with the E63 surfacing in 2017.
