2020 Mercedes-AMG GT Facelift Spied, Shows Minor Visual Improvements


Facelifted once in 2017, the Mercedes-AMG GT family went official at the 2014 edition of the Paris Motor Show. In a matter of months, however, a more extensive facelift is planned for the entire lineup, which includes new headlights and a GT C-inspired rear bumper.

The DRL signature is different as well, as is the design of the indicators. Look even closer at the rear of the prototype caught by the carparazzi in Germany, and you’ll notice a quad-exhaust system that differs from today’s GT family. Even though the interior is camouflaged, the infotainment system from the C-Class facelift should be in the pipeline.

Going official in late 2018 for the 2020 model year in the United States of America, the latest evolution of the Mercedes-AMG GT will see improvements all across the board as far as the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 is concerned. The M178 will continue to work its magic alongside the AMG Speedshift DCT.

The entry-level version has 476 PS on tap, and then the GT S levels up to 522 PS and GT C to 557 PS. At the very top of the range, the GT R develops 585 PS and no less than 700 Nm (516 pound-feet) of torque. Word has it the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT will get 500 PS, with the GT R going on 600 PS.

Even though a lot of details remain unclear for the time being, chief executive officer Tobias Moers previously suggested that the GT will welcome two additional variants. The track-focused GT R Clubsport is one of them, trading creature comforts for lightness. Then there’s the Black Series, which will arrive in 2020 and act as a spiritual successor to the SLS AMG Black Series.

Last, but certainly not least, take a look at the license plate and bumperettes at the rear end of the prototype. Those details make it clear that what Mercedes-AMG is testing here is a model destined for the U.S. market.
