2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe Engine Specs and Power Ratings

As Mercedes-Benz continues to reshuffle its model names, the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class will replace the GLK-Class for 2016. The name is far from the only thing changing when the 2016 model rolls out, as we’ll also see a new variant added to the mix in the form of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe. Much like Mercedes-Benz did with the GLE Coupe, the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe takes elements of coupes and SUVs and harmoniously brings them together to create a slope-roofed rival to the BMW X4.

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe debut takes place at the Shanghai Motor Show, but before Mercedes-Benz pulls the curtains off its latest model, it officially announced GLC Coupe prior to its unveiling. Although the GLC Coupe we’ll see at the Shanghai Motor Show is still in concept form, Mercedes-Benz notes that it is a “near-production-standard study,” so we can anticipate most of the specs to be on par with the production model.

With the announcement of the concept, we can get a good grasp of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe engine specs and power ratings. While the entire range hasn’t been announced, we expect these figures to be for the Mercedes-Benz GLC AMG Sport model.

Under the hood, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe will feature a biturbo 3.0-liter V-6 capable of 367 horsepower and 387 pound-feet of torque. That engine will team with a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that will send power to a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. Like the GLE Coupe, the GLC Coupe will feature multiple transmission modes, which will help drivers personalize their experiences behind the wheel.

In addition to the engine specs and power ratings, Mercedes-Benz revealed a GLC Coupe photo gallery (below), which gave us an opportunity to analyze the design and styling of the all-new coupe. Among the coolest elements of its design are the four stainless-steel tailpipes, which are vertically stacked in sets of two at a slight angle. In total, the GLC Coupe is not all that different in design from the GLE Coupe, despite having a more compact body.

We’ll have more information about the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, including release date information, after the new model gets officially unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show. In the meantime, we have a selection of 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK models ready to be driven before the model is replaced with the upcoming GLC-Class.
