New Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door: super saloon gets tweaked for 2024

The GT 4-Door is Mercedes’ range-topping performance saloon

The full range of Mercedes GT 4-Door saloons will get a mid-life update with a focus on upgraded equipment and a subtle new exterior look. 

Mercedes announced in September that the range-topping GT 4-Door S E Performance would be revised for 2024, but now the German firm has confirmed the rest of the GT 4-Door range will also benefit from similar tweaks. 

The GT 4-Door was initially facelifted in 2021, so these changes are fairly minimal, but they bring the model closer in-line with the new Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe that launched this year. 

Like on the new Coupe, there’s an AMG radiator grille with vertical stripes and an extra air duct beneath it. The lower air intake is now wider, and to the side we can see thinner air ducts for an overall less aggressive look than its predecessor. A new white metallic has been added to the list of exterior paint finish options. 

Speaking of options there’s an ‘Aerodynamics package’ that can be added to the GT 4-Door 63 and the 63 S E Performance which adds a front lip, more aggressive rear diffuser and a fixed rear wing. 

Some more changes can be found inside the AMG GT 4-Door E Performance, although these are limited to a bump up in equipment rather than further cosmetic tweaks. An electric sunroof and wireless smartphone charger in the rear are now standard features and the MBUX infotainment system has been updated on the dual 12.3-inch screens. The upgraded Burmester sound system is now standard, too. 

V8 power is a feature throughout the GT 4-Door range, with the 63 4MATIC+ offering 585bhp and 800Nm of torque for a 0-62mph time of 3.4 seconds. The 63 S ups this to 639bhp and 900Nm of torque, dropping the sprint time to 3.2 seconds.

Powering the range-topping 63 S E Performance is a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 and rear-mounted electric motor, which combine for a colossal 831bhp and 1,400Nm of torque. Power is sent to all-four wheels through a nine-speed automatic and there’s rear-wheel steering as well. Thankfully, the huge carbon ceramic brakes are still standard-fit. Mercedes tweaked the adaptive air suspension during the mid-life update in 2021 and it remains unchanged for this revised model.

Pricing and launch dates haven’t been revealed yet for the UK market but we expect the standard GT 4-Door 63 to cost from around £150,000 and the top-spec S E Performance to rise from its current £178,705 asking price when it arrives sometime in 2024.
