2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 packs an electrified punch

Its EQ Boost mild-hybrid system can fill in torque gaps where necessary.

This refresh focuses mainly on technological and aesthetic updates, and the latter plays it pretty close to the chest.

The looks aren't all that different from before, with slightly restyled LED headlights and new taillights that are reminiscent of coupe-ier Mercedes.

As usual, the E53 sets itself apart from the more pedestrian sedans by way of more aggressive bumpers, four round tailpipes and different wheels.

Its 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 gas engine produces 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, but that's just the beginning.

Sandwiched between the engine and nine-speed automatic transmission is an electric motor that can provide an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft as needed.

AMG's all-wheel-drive system is capable of sending all that power to the rear wheels for a little more fun, too.
