Apart from the ‘V8 BITURBO’ lettering on the front wings, you can’t miss the 21" AMG Alloy wheels on the GLE 63 S 4MATIC. The front apron features an A-wing in high-gloss black, a front splitter painted in the vehicle colour, silver chrome inserts and large cooling air intakes.
Muscular AMG styling underscores the remarkable power and performance of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S. The expressive front section combines the familiar two-louvre AMG grille with an AMG-specific apron, featuring an A-wing in high-gloss black with chrome inserts. Large 21” bicolour Alloy wheels reveal red-painted brake calipers, while ‘V8 BITURBO’ lettering adorns the front wing. At the rear, the AMG sports exhaust features two chrome-plated twin tailpipes.
The interior is brimming with luxurious AMG touches, starting with AMG Exclusive nappa leather upholstery in black and alpaca grey top-stitching on the AMG sports seats, as well as headrests embossed with the AMG emblem. As you’d expect, there’s also an AMG performance steering wheel. Plus, the 4.4-inch AMG instrument cluster lights up in red. The panoramic electric sliding sunroof is another welcome addition to the car’s generous equipment list.
The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S takes SUV performance to a whole new level. Boasting a 585 hp V8 bi-turbo engine that produces up to 760 Nm of torque, it can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in only 4.2 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
Choose the optional AMG Performance package and top speed is raised to 175 mph. You’ll also enjoy enhanced acoustics from the Performance exhaust system and benefit from a driver training course at the AMG Driving Academy.
To help you extract optimum performance, DYNAMIC SELECT offers a choice of driving modes.
To ensure a smooth ride and agile handling, the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S is equipped with AMG sports suspension. Based on AIRMATIC suspension with Adaptive Damping System, the system has been specially tuned for added dynamism.
In addition, the vehicle is fitted with the innovative ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM. Using adaptive front and rear stabiliser bars, this ingenious technology reduces body roll when cornering at speed, improving comfort and safety. It also enhances off-road performance, enabling you to tackle uneven terrain with complete confidence.
Films on DVD, music or television: the entertainment package provides passengers in the rear with their own programme of entertainment. Two 8inch displays and two sets of headphones ensure a brilliant picture and sound quality, and a TV tuner allows for Digital TV reception that is available on all models.
4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive means the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S is ready for anything, off-road and on. The system continuously monitors traction for each wheel independently, and delivers torque accordingly. So if one wheel is slipping while another has grip, power goes to the wheel that can use it more effectively.
To optimise handling and control, 4MATIC works alongside the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP®), and the Four-wheel Electronic Traction System (4ETS). On this AMG model, the system also has a 40:60 rearward bias to enhance driving dynamics.
