The New 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe: The Details

New-to-U.S. model brings another entry point to AMG’s bespoke sedan.

Two years ago, AMG delivered on its promise of a bespoke (as in, not shared with the Mercedes-Benz brand) sedan platform in the form of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door. The headliner was the 630-horsepower AMG GT 63 S and its slightly tamer 577-hp sans-S variant, both all rort and snort to go with relative comfort. In the U.S., the only model below the 63 pairing until now was the GT 53, a 429-hp beast in its own right, prompting us to note at the time that the "cheap" AMG GT 4-Door Coupe was still a nearly $100,000 proposition.  But now there's a new entry point to the AMG GT range—and it is about 10-percent less expensive, though it's still not cheap: Meet the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe.

Priced from $90,950 (including destination fee), the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe gets its power from  a source that'll be familiar to fans of the GT 53: A 3.0-liter inline-six rated for 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, plus the EQ Boost 48-volt system that can add up to 21 hp and 184 lb-ft.  Mercedes-AMG's Speedshift TCT nine-speed transmission handles gear changes, and power is sent to all four wheels via 4Matic+ AWD with variable torque distribution. AMG says the AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.8 seconds; top speed is yet to be announced.

Despite being the new entry point to the AMG GT 4-Door range, as the price reflects, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe is no stripped-out rental-lot special. It still gets the AMG Dynamic Select drive-mode system found in its bigger brothers, as well as AMG Ride Control Sport suspension, six-piston front brake calipers, an electronically deployable rear spoiler, and a Burmester surround-sound system—all as standard equipment.

New for all 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe models is standard Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment, which includes the latest user interface design, plus learning-capable software, natural-speech recognition, and more.

Look for full specs, features, model packages, and further details to come closer to the car's retail launch in the U.S. in late 2020.
