The Mercedes-AMG E53's Mild-Hybrid Straight-Six Is Fascinating

A 3.0-liter six coupled with an electric motor, a twin-scroll turbo, and an electric compressor sounds too complicated for its own good. It's not.

The Mercedes-AMG E53 has one of the most interesting engines of any car on sale today. Its 429-hp 3.0-liter straight-six might not be a full AMG-designed monster like the brand’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8, but with a twin-scroll turbo, electric motor, and an electric compressor, it makes the most of today's available tech.

Mercedes returned to straight-sixes two years ago with the M256, essentially two cylinders grafted onto the company's 2.0-liter four. All of the company's gas passenger car engines are pretty similar, each with a bore of 83.0 mm and a stroke of around 92.0 mm (the M256’s is 92.4 mm).
