STUTTGART, Germany — Daimler has released the first official photo of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG ahead of its debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show and confirmed that it will be available for the first time in a 4Matic version.

The photo shows front-end changes, including a grille with a single bar and new headlights. The photo shows the E-Class lineup on a track with the E63 AMG pulling away.

"Of interest not only to the U.S. market will be the E63 AMG models, now available for the first time in a 4Matic version as well," said Daimler in a statement accompanying the image.

No official powertrain specifications were revealed.

Edmunds in November reported that this all-wheel-drive version of Mercedes' hot sport sedan will be powered by the same M157 twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 that produces 518 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, or 550 hp and 590 lb-ft with the optional AMG performance pack.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG is expected to turn in 0-60 times approaching those of the Porsche Panamera Turbo S, which ran a 3.7-second 0-60 (3.5 with rollout).

Pricing was not announced, but Daimler noted "although the equipment and appointments packages have been significantly enhanced, the prices for the E-Class models remain at nearly the same level as for their predecessors."

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG starts at $90,705, including a $905 destination charge.

Edmunds says: Just a little appetizer for fans of the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.
