It’s time to shop for your next luxury coupe! But which one should you choose? The Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT 4-Door Coupe has built itself a favorable reputation here in Peoria, AZ, so we would encourage you to check it out here at Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead. But first, should you get the 2021 model or its 2020 predecessor? Let’s find out!
The main perk about the newest addition to the Mercedes-Benz AMG® GT line is the lowest trim. Previously, you’d have your pick between the AMG® 53, AMG® 63, and AMG® 63 S. While these are all high-quality vehicles, they also come at a high price, with the Starting MSRP* at $99,950. However, with the new 2021 Mercedes-AMG® GT 43 trim, you’ll have a Starting MSRP* of *$89,900, which is $10,000 cheaper then the 2020 AMG® GT 53. However, you’ll still see the AMG® GT 43 give you a substantial amount of power.
2021 MB AMG® GT 43
|2020 MB AMG® GT 53|
|362 hp||Horsepower||429 hp|
|369 lb.-ft.||Torque||384 lb.-ft.|
|4.8 seconds||0-60 mph acceleration||4.4 seconds|
|AMG® Performance 4MATIC*||Drivetrain||AMG® Performance 4MATIC®*|
As you can see, the horsepower and torque of the 2021 AMG® GT 4-Door isn’t as jaw-dropping as the 2020 AMG® GT 53. However, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t bring you a powerful engine and satisfying acceleration speed. You’ll still be able to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.8 seconds. That’s only .4 slower than the AMG® 53. Furthermore, you’ll also see the same AMG® Performance 4MATIC®* drivetrain that backs up the power of the AMG® GT and makes it such a pleasure to drive.
So, even though you won’t have as much power in the AMG® GT 43, this model will give you something the previous year models won’t: affordability. Now, you can finally own the high-performing luxury coupe, without wincing at the price tag.
