2024 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC – Performance SUV with 416-HP 4-Cylinder. Like its sedan sibling the C-class, the latest AMG performance version of the new Mercedes GLC SUV is swapping its V-6 for a four-cylinder engine. The 2024 AMG GLC43 now features a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four rather than the previous model’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6, but fortunately the new powerplant produces more horsepower despite its smaller displacement and fewer cylinders.
The turbo-four in the new-generation GLC43 is the same M139 engine found in many other AMG models including the C43, and it has 416 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque in this application. That’s an increase of 31 hp but a decrease of 15 pound-feet compared with the old V-6, but Mercedes touts better responsiveness thanks to this engine’s F1-inspired technology that incorporates an electrically assisted turbocharger and a 48-volt hybrid system. Mercedes says the belt-driven starter generator can add a boost of 13 horsepower at lower engine speeds. The GLC43 hits 60 mph in a claimed 4.7 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph.
Rear-wheel steering, adaptive dampers, and larger brakes are standard equipment. The AMG GLC43 also differentiates itself from the base GLC300 with an AMG-specific front grille, a rear diffuser, dual exhausts, and 20-inch wheels with a staggered-width tire setup. The transmission is a nine-speed wet-clutch gearbox, and the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system is tuned to send more torque to the rear wheels than in the standard GLC.
Interior tweaks include a different steering wheel with aluminum shift paddles and AMG-branded pedals, door sills, display screens, and floor mats. Sports seats are optional, as is Nappa leather upholstery and a data-logger function that can record lap times and other performance metrics.
We expect the 2024 AMG GLC43 to start in the mid-$60,000 range; although Mercedes hasn’t released details on option packages yet, there will surely be lots of costly extras. The AMG GLC43 treatment will also surely reach the GLC’s coupe bodystyle soon enough. For now, Mercedes says that the squareback GLC43 SUV will go on sale in the U.S. in early 2024. It’ll be followed later next year by the far more powerful GLC63, now with a hybrid powertrain also using a turbo-four, that’s set to arrive as a 2025 model.
