At the rear, an AMG-styled apron, which mirrors the front apron’s “A” shape, incorporates the AMG sports exhaust with two exposed chrome-plated twin tailpipes.

Performance

The GL 63 AMG 4MATIC doesn’t just look the part; there’s plenty of AMG muscle under the hood to match its dynamic styling. It’s powered by an AMG 5.5 litre V8 BITURBO engine, producing 557 hp and 760 Nm of torque. This not only gives it plenty of grunt when it’s tackling tough terrain, it also gives it formidable on-road performance. This is a large seven-seater SUV that can power from 0-62 mph in just 4.9 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (though it can reach up to 174 mph with the optional AMG Driver's package).

But hard facts and figures, though impressive, only tell half the story. Because nothing quite prepares you for the sense of anticipation as you climb behind the steering wheel. The tingle of excitement as you fire up the engine, the surge of adrenalin as you dab the accelerator and unleash that signature AMG roar.​

Interior

Flawless attention to detail, exclusive styling and outstanding comfort and ergonomics - that’s what welcomes you on entering the GL 63 AMG 4MATIC. Materials and finishes are premium quality throughout, from the aluminium trim to the leather-upholstered AMG sports seats with AMG-specific seat design.

Familiar AMG touches include the multi-function AMG performance steering wheel, trimmed in nappa leather with perforated grips, flattened lower section and silver coloured gearshift paddles. The distinctive AMG instrument cluster and brushed stainless steel sports pedals further emphasise the car’s high-performance credentials.

The cabin is spacious, with huge load capacity and seating for seven adults. Multi-contour front seats with massage and memory function provide an extra layer of luxury.

Safety

Advanced safety systems on the GL 63 AMG 4MATIC include COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST. Designed to reduce the risks of rear-end impacts, this radar-based system gives you visual and acoustic warnings if you’re getting dangerously close to the vehicle ahead. The system also makes maximum braking power available if you need it.

Crosswind Assist is another key system, sensing when a strong gust of wind affects the vehicle’s steering and using automatic braking intervention to correct the situation.

Also included on the GL 63 AMG 4MATIC, the award-winning ATTENTION ASSIST detects driver fatigue and warns you to take a break. You'll also find the cutting-edge PRE-SAFE ® anticipatory safety system, which anticipates danger and initiates a series of pre-emptive safety measures in the vital moments before a potential accident.

Transmission

To harness all that V8 power, the GL 63 AMG 4MATIC features AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC. This advanced 7-speed automatic transmission offers three distinct driving modes: Controlled Efficiency (C), which uses ECO start / stop to maximise efficiency; and Sport (S) and Manual (M), which offer shorter shift times, quicker response and those distinctive AMG sounds as you work through the gears. Couple this with the AMG Ride Control sports suspension with AIRMATIC air suspension and you have a breath-taking mix of agility and comfort. This is further enhanced by the innovative Active Curve system, which uses active anti-roll bars on front and rear axles to reduce body roll during cornering. This ensures outstanding handling stability, driving enjoyment and safety.
