For 2022, so far, only the six-cylinder variants – the GT 53 4MATIC+ and GT 43 4MATIC+ – have been updated.
Folks at Affalterbach have pulled the wraps off the 2022 AMG GT four-door coupé. And yes, at first glance, it's hard to spot the update. That's because the car still looks the same, at least on the outside. However, Mercedes has clearly stated that this is more of a 'lifestyle' update and therefore, the car's design has been left untouched.
So, what's new? First, the update has been rolled out only on the 3.0-litre six-cylinder versions, i.e., on the 429bhp GT 53 4MATIC+ and 362bhp GT 43 4MATIC+. The V8-powered GT 63 versions are expected to receive the same updates soon.
As for visual changes, there aren't too many. However, the six-cylinder models do get the option of receiving the front-end look of the more powerful 63 versions. Plus, there are three new exterior colours for all models – Spectral Blue Metallic, Spectral Blue Magno (matte finish), and Cashmere White Magno (matte finish) – along with some new wheel design options.
The AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension has been reconfigured, courtesy of a new damping system. The adaptive electronically controlled damping system now features two 'pressure limiting' valves – one valve controls the rebound damping, i.e., the force exerted when the wheel rebounds, and the other controls the compression damping when the wheel compresses, allowing the damping force to be adjusted more precisely.
Inside, customers now have more trim and upholstery colourway options. The new twin-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel also adds an element of freshness.
For those after exclusivity, there's a new Edition model that's been finished in a bespoke dark gemstone shade of Rubellite Red and flaunts new 21-inch five-twin-spoke AMG forged wheels.
As part of the unveiling, Philipp Schiemer, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH also stated the following: 'In addition, we will soon be presenting our first E PERFORMANCE hybrids in this model, thereby driving forward the electrification of the powertrain.' This confirms that the global debut of the Mercedes-AMG GT 73 four-door hybrid is just around the corner.
