in August The news cameThat most Mercedes models equipped with this could not be ordered with a four-liter turbocharged V8, and now it is also clear why. According to the specialist who drives the expensive divisions at Mercedes – Maybach and AMG – it’s not a lack of parts but some kind of quality problem.
Speaking to American Road & Track, Scheimer said the show is reviewed every year, and in the meantime, they’ve found a flaw that needs to be corrected. V8s are currently being retested. This is why this engine is no longer available on some models, although the S-Class is not affected by the problem and AMG is also said to provide it for Aston Martin.
In the same interview, another important piece of information emerged: Schimer says the turbocharged V8 will definitely remain a part of the supply for the next 10 years, which is surprising given that everything in Mercedes’ communications is now revolving around the switch to electric cars.
By the way, the 4-liter turbocharged V8 appeared in another role: AMG GT 63 S E-Performance in a four-door coupe as part of a hybrid system with 843 horsepower. At the same time, the eight-cylinders will likely wear out slowly from the smaller sports models: AMG’s next version of the C-Class will almost certainly have a turbocharged four-cylinder.
