A LINEUP OF SUPERSTARS. A FAMILY OF THOROUGHBREDS.

Happening today
 

From the creators of the 45, 63 and 65 model lines comes MercedesAMG 43, eight high performance vehicles with AMG pedigree were introduced at Mercedes-Benz Autohaus, Beribi, yesterday. Fitted with numerous AMG enhancements, every vehicle screams “Drive me,” because in the AMG family, performance is king. From coupes and sedans to SUVs and roadsters, the power and handling of the 43 lineup beckon to the world’s most passionate drivers. All that’s left to do is grip the wheel and press the accelerator.

The 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine provides impressive performance with its 270 kW (367 hp) maximum power and peak torque of 520 newton metres: sprinting from rest to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, its speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h. The newly developed front axle, the taut elastokinematics and the highly precise steering make a substantial contribution to the agile driving experience.

The highlights
• 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine with modified engine control unit, increased boost pressure and far higher dynamics and high-revving
• 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with double-declutching function when shifting down and exhilaratingly short response times in “Sport Plus” mode
• AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive with rear-biased torque distribution of 31 to 69 percent (front axle to rear axle)
• AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with adaptive variable damping in three stages, mode can be selected via button, adopted from MercedesAMG 63 series
• AMG DYNAMIC SELECT switch for dynamic, individually selectable driving experience with five drive modes and AMG-specific parameterisation
• Three-stage Electronic Stability Program ESP®
• Front axle with newly developed steering knuckles and load-bearing joints on the spring link. Elastokinematic adjustments to the links have been adopted from the Mercedes-AMG 63 series
• Rear axle with elastokinematics tailored to higher driving dynamics
Large braking system with internally ventilated compound brake discs, perforated at the front with a diameter of 360 mm, and with a diameter of 320 mm at the rear

AMG-specific: the 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine
The new 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine is part of the BlueDIRECT engine family from Mercedes-Benz. Technical advances including a modified boost pressure allowed the AMG engineers to increase the engine’s power output and torque as well as its dynamism and flexibility to typical AMG levels. With 270 kW (367 hp) and 520 Nm, the V6 engine sets new standards in its segment. The NANOSLIDE® coating of the cylinder liners is also used in the Formula One engines of MERCEDES-AMG PETRONAS. Especially tough and, therefore, wear-resistant, this coating also reduces friction, thereby contributing to higher efficiency. The AMG powerplant can be identified by the red aluminium insert in the engine cover.

Short shift times, high efficiency: 9G-TRONIC
The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is especially matched to the demands of the Mercedes-AMG 43. Thanks to the model-specific software application, the AMG developers managed to reduce substantially the shift times of the 9-speed transmission. The multiple downshift allows even faster short bursts of speed, while the double-declutching function in the “Sport” and “Sport Plus” transmission modes makes for an even more emotive driving experience. Defined ignition adjustments also provide faster gearshifts in the “Eco” and “Comfort” modes.

“Manual” mode can be enabled by pressing a button on the centre console. The gear changes are based on the selected transmission mode, and the driver can now change gear using the paddles on the steering wheel. Moreover, the transmission stays in the selected gear and does not automatically shift up when the engine speed reaches the limit.

Rear-biased and agile: AMG Performance 4MATIC
The standard-fit AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive combines optimum traction, hallmark AMG vehicle dynamics and maximum driving pleasure. The system features a rear-biased torque distribution of 31 percent to the front axle and 69 percent to the rear axle. This arrangement ensures greater vehicle dynamics and higher lateral acceleration on the road as well as improved traction as it uses the dynamic shift in the axle load toward the rear axle that occurs during acceleration to deliver more drive torque to the rear. A multi-disc clutch with a locking effect of 50 Nm guarantees that the frictional connection potential of all four wheels is exploited to the full. On road surfaces with different levels of grip, the all-wheel drive responds with targeted brake application on one wheel in order to also guarantee optimum traction in such instances.

Mercedes-Benz SUV

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in automative, Social News

 

 

Jati Transport Sdn Bhd introduces 3 new SUVs from Mercedes-Benz today at their Gadong showroom. The new facelift GLS, GLE and the all-new GLC Coupé.

GLS facelift

The facelift strengthens the leading position of the GLS in its segment with a modified exterior, even more quality in the interior plus innovative technology for enhanced ride comfort and safety. The large-size SUV appeals to customers who are looking for impressive spaciousness for up to 7 people and a modern take on luxury.

On display, the GLS 400 4MATIC AMG Line lends the exterior an even more dynamic and athletic character. It includes the eye-catching AMG bodystyling with AMG-specific front and rear aprons, wheel arch extensions in the vehicle colour as well as 53.3 cm (21-inch) AMG light-alloy wheels.

The powerful V6 petrol engine in the GLS 400 4MATIC AMG Line with its responsive exhaust gas turbocharger delivers 245kW (333hp) and a maxikmum torque of 480Nm. The facelifted GLS also fitted as standard with the 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic transmission which further improved electrohydraulic control unit, together with optimised engine and transmission software, results in more dynamic gear changes and even greater shift quality.

 

 

 

GLE facelift

Mercedes-Benz has thoroughly revised its best-seller in the SUV segment. The highlights of the GLE facelift include considerably more appealing front and tail ends and extensive measures which make new benchmarks with regard to emissions and drive system possible.

The GLE 400 4MATIC AMG Line truly underlines the dynamic and athletic appearance of the car in the showroom. The AMG Line package comprises, among other things, special front and rear bumpers in the distinctive AMG styling and 50.8-cm (20-inch) AMG light-alloy wheels.

The V6 biturbo petrol engine in the GLE 400 4MATIC AMG Line develops 245kW (333hp) and a peak torque of 480 Nm.

 

GLC Coupé

The dynamic-expressive styling of the GLC Coupé concept was a centre of attention at its world premiere in 2015 in Shanghai. It unites the typical stylistic elements of a coupé with the design language of current SUV models. Just one year later, this promise has become a reality: the new GLC Coupé translates the design idiom of the show car, with its distinctive basic structure and stretched greenhouse, virtually unchanged into series production. At the same time, the sports car among Mercedes-Benz’s midsize SUVs impresses with its brand-typical safety, modern assistance systems and an especially sporty-dynamic character.The as-standard sports suspension as well as more direct sports steering, DYNAMIC SELECT and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission combine effortlessly superior ride comfort with decidedly sporty agility.

At the launch, the GLC 250 4MATIC Coupé is powered by a 4-cylinder turbocharged pertol engine which delivers an output of 155 kW (211 hp) and a peak torque of 350 Nm.

So do visit the showroom at Gadong and check out the SUVs from the Mercedes-Benz line.
