  • The coupe that will go after the AMG GT55 and GT63 models, which are expected to debut later this spring, is the 2025 Mercedes-AMG GT43.
  • When coupled to a rear-wheel drive setup, the GT43’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine produces 416 horsepower.
  • The ’25 Mercedes-AMG GT43 coupe’s price will be disclosed closer to the time of release.

Right now, the Mercedes-AMG news tap is wide open. Information on the AMG GT coupe’s second generation just keeps coming in. The most recent version had its debut in the autumn of last year, and the 2024 AMG GT55 and GT53 versions’ prices were revealed yesterday. Mercedes has now unveiled the AMG GT43 coupe for 2025. 

Meet the AMG GT43

When compared to the higher trims, the new entry-level GT43 coupe has some obvious differences, most notably in power delivery. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 416 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque powers the GT43’s 48-volt hybrid powertrain. In our hands, the Mercedes-AMG C43 sports sedan reached 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, and it is equipped with essentially the same turbo four engine. Although the GT43 coupe has a little bit more power, Mercedes estimates that it will hit 60 mph in more than 4.5 seconds.

While the GT43 coupe has rear-wheel drive as standard, the 402-hp C43 has all-wheel drive as standard. The GT43 has less traction and power than the other AMG coupes, but its RWD setup may make it more enjoyable. The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine in the Mercedes GT55 and GT63 models produces 469 and 577 horsepower, respectively. The GT63, according to Mercedes, can reach 60 mph in just three seconds.

Aero Trickery

The GT43 has a few performance-enhancing figurative tricks up its sleeve, even if it has the least power of the group. A concealed louver mechanism on the front fascia opens when maximum cooling is required and closes to minimize drag. Depending on the driving conditions, the retractable spoiler at the back of the car moves up and down. According to Mercedes, the spoiler may be adjusted in five different ways over 50 mph to maximize handling stability or minimize drag.

The 2024 AMG GT55 and GT63 coupes are expected to reach the United States somewhere in the spring, but the GT43 will have to wait a little while longer. Pricing for the new entry-level coupe will be announced closer to the vehicle’s introduction date. It will finally go on sale as a 2025 model. We anticipate that the GT43’s starting price will be more than $100,000 given the significant price increases for the more powerful AMG GT coupes in 2024.
