PlumbingMercedes-AMG Fear not, enthusiast. If there's a will, there's a way to continue building performance vehicles with a closer eye on efficiency. The latest crop of Mercedes-AMG SUVs is proof of the theory, but on Tuesday, the company revealed the latest recipient of its electrified, twin-turbo V8.

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupe (wow, that's a lot to say) shares its electrified heart with the latest GLE63 and GLS63 models, a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with a 48-volt hybrid system -- and it boasts identical performance specs. Should the GLS63 S be too large, or the standard GLE63 S too, well, standard, the GLE63 S Coupe still packs 603 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.

Ah, but the electrified twist that I mentioned often already, that's the ace up the performance SUV's sleeve. For a short period of time, the 48-volt hybrid system, which Mercedes-AMG calls EQ Boost, can ditch being efficient and act as a power generator. In this scenario, the system fills in power and torque where needed with an extra 21 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque available.
