Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 43 review: Our expert's take

By Aaron Bragman

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |

Mercedes-Benz is adding a new model to its controversial AMG GT 4-Door Coupe lineup, an “entry-level” trim (if you can call a car that’s more than $90,000 “entry level”). The new 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT43 is slated to receive a slightly less powerful version of the turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine shared with the AMG GT53, but most of the more expensive trim’s amenities remain — as do the stunning good looks that all of the AMG GTs bring to the party.

The biggest difference between the GT43 and GT53 (and the even more crazy GT63) lies under the hood, where you’ll find the turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder engine that’s shared with the 53, but making a lesser 362 horsepower and 369 pounds-feet of torque; it also features the EQ Boost mild-hybrid system that can add as much as 21 hp and 184 pounds-feet of torque to the system when called upon. It’s still mated to an AMG-tuned nine-speed automatic transmission, and still routes power to all four wheels via Mercedes-Benz’ 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. Even this “entry-level” AMG GT43 is still good for a 0-to-60-mph time of 4.8 seconds, according to Mercedes. 

The list of standard features is decent and includes an adjustable ride control sport suspension, silver-painted six-piston front brake calipers, a Burmester premium audio system, electronically deployable rear spoiler and the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system that is now standard on all 2021 GT 4-Door models.

Option packages will be similar to more expensive versions of the GT 4-Door, such as a variety of wheels, semi-autonomous driving systems and an even more premium Burmester 3D audio system. There’s also a choice of rear seat setup: either the standard pair of bucket seats or the Executive Rear Seat Package that ups the creature comforts. 

The new AMG GT43 4-Door is set to go on sale late this year starting at $90,950 including destination fee. This puts it about $10,000 less than the GT53 4-Door, which has a starting price of $100,945 but features the more powerful 429-hp, six-cylinder engine, and about $50,000 less than the 577-hp, V-8-powered GT63. And if you want to go all out for the ultimate GT63 S 4-Door Coupe, you’ll have to fork over an additional $71,000 and change for that monster, which has a starting price of $162,195 — and that’s before you start adding any of the fun option packages.
