The introduction of the GL-Class in 2007 pushed Mercedes-Benz deeper into SUV trends. The first full-size crossover from the German automaker, its unibody construction delivered car-like drivability without surrendering truck-like towing capacity.
The GL63 AMG was born in 2012, just a year before Mercedes-Benz redesigned the entire G-Class line and produced an all-new GL63 AMG with a sleeker body and more imposing presence. AMG fits the GL63 with a louvered grille, a deep front air dam, mesh air intakes, LED daytime running lamps, a stylish rear apron and chrome tailpipes to help distinguish it from the rest of the GL-Class. A set of monstrous 21-inch wheels further distinguish it from the pack.
Thanks to AMG, the big SUV performs like a supercar. A famed 5.5-liter V8 engine punishes the road with 550 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed AMG SpeedShift transmission delivers power to all four wheels via the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. The high output and broad torque band allow the GL63 to tow up to 7,500 pounds and accelerate to 60 mph in only 4.8 seconds.
