The Mercedes-AMG news faucet is currently all the way open. Details about the second generation of the AMG GT coupe just keep flowing. The latest iteration debuted last fall, and yesterday pricing for the 2024 AMG GT55 and GT53 models was announced. Now, Mercedes has revealed the 2025 AMG GT43 coupe.

Meet the AMG GT43

The new entry-level GT43 coupe has some noticeable changes compared with the higher trims, namely power delivery. The GT43 packs a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 416 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque; the engine also features a 48-volt hybrid system. It's essentially the same turbo four found in the Mercedes-AMG C43 sports sedan, which in our hands hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. The GT43 coupe makes slightly more power, but Mercedes claims it will take closer to 4.5 seconds to reach 60 mph.

The 402-hp C43 features standard all-wheel drive, while the GT43 coupe comes with rear-wheel drive. Compared with the other AMG coupes, the GT43 is down on power and traction, but it's RWD configuration arguably provides more fun. Both the GT55 and GT63 models feature Mercedes's twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 making 469 and 577 horses, respectively. Mercedes claims the GT63 will hit 60 mph in three seconds flat.

Aero Trickery

Despite having the least power of the bunch, the GT43 has a few tricks up its metaphorical sleeve to help aid performance. The front fascia features a hidden louver system that closes to reduce drag or opens when maximum cooling is needed. At the rear of the car, the retractable spoiler dances up and down, depending on the driving situation. Mercedes says the spoiler has five positions above 50 mph to either optimize handling stability or reduce drag.

While the 2024 AMG GT55 and GT63 coupes are scheduled to arrive in the U.S. sometime this spring, the wait will be a bit longer for the GT43. The new entry-level coupe will eventually go on sale as a 2025 model, with pricing to arrive closer to its launch date. With the mightier AMG GT coupes receiving large price hikes for 2024, we think it's likely that the GT43 will start above $100K.
