The star of the Mercedes-Benz midsize crossover line, the ML63 AMG goes beyond the quality and luxury you expect and delivers genuine excitement. It’s a clear shout-out to buyers who value performance just as much as prestige.

You can now get your hands on a split-screen dash display that projects different images to the driver and front passenger.
Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG
Like the rest of the M-Class, the ML63 AMG comes standard with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission. The difference lies under the hood, where the ML63 AMG packs a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 with 518 horsepower. You also get a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive stabilizer bars, 20-inch AMG wheels, ventilated sport seats in top-grade leather and exclusive styling details.
The ML63 AMG brims with standard features that cost extra elsewhere in the lineup. All examples are equipped with navigation, 10 gigs of audio storage, adaptive xenon headlamps, an automated parallel packing system, and blind-spot and lane-departure warning systems.
Mercedes-Benz offers two option packages for enhanced safety and performance:
- Driver Assistance: Adds adaptive cruise control and an impressive suite of collision mitigation features.
- AMG Performance: Comes with a 550-horsepower version of the 5.5-liter, plus a higher top speed, red brake calipers, a carbon-fiber engine cover and (optional) 21-inch wheels.
Beyond that, there are several individual options worth having, including a panoramic sunroof, massaging front seats, a rear entertainment system and a thunderous Bang & Olufsen sound system.
The ML63 AMG is obviously well equipped from the start, though it feels incomplete without the panoramic sunroof installed. We would skip the $6,550 AMG Performance Package, which doesn’t add much in the way of actual performance. Its most interesting feature, the carbon-fiber engine cover, is available separately, anyway.
