A large, imposing and devilishly fast full-size SUV, the GL63 AMG has few equals in terms of speed, physical presence, or majestic interior comfort.
With a 5.5 litre bi-turbo V8 engine and 4MATIC all-wheel drive, this mechanically marvellous SUV is one of the best 4x4s around.

The GL63 AMG requires a range of stability-enhancing measures to retain control in all situations. Traction Control, Downhill Speed Regulation and an Electronic Stability Programme are in place to avoid any loss of control, even on the most treacherous road surfaces. Sophisticated active measures include Attention Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist, both of which detect and warn against fatigue or losses of concentration. A vehicle with the bulk and enormously strong frame of the GL63 AMG already gives its driver and passengers strong protection during an impact. Seven airbags are provided, whilst the Pre-Safe system detects when an accident is likely to occur and readies the vehicle for impact by tensing seatbelts, closing windows and optimising the position of the seats.
The very size of the GL63 AMG inspires respect. The beefy front profile is dominated by the wide, chrome-barred grille, which sits between powerful bi-xenon headlamps and LED daytime running lights.
Through the profile of the vehicle, the GL-Class continues to express its latent power. Muscular side skirts compliment the powerful rear section perfectly, underlining the vehicle’s authoritative road presence.
Two twin tailpipes, and 21” alloy wheels below the flared arches, complete the impression of irresistible power.
The capacious interior affords a great deal of headroom and legroom to seven full-size adult occupants.
Even with all seven seats in place, loadspace is still adequate at 295 litres – a figure which increases to a cavernous 2,300 litres with the second and third rows folded downwards.
The AMG instrument cluster and multi-function steering wheel heighten the sense of occasion, along with nappa leather sports seats and brushed stainless steel pedals.
Mercedes’ 5.5 litre V8 petrol engine ensures that the GL63 AMG delivers all the extraordinary performance you would expect – even from a vehicle with a weight approaching three tonnes.
Maximum power output of 557hp and maximum torque of 760Nm between 2000-5000rpm pulls the vehicle from a standstill to 62mph in an astonishing 4.9 seconds.
The seven-speed AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission plays an integral role, with its precisely judged upshifts and downshifts ensuring that the engine always provides plenty of bite regardless of your speed.
A huge array of advanced technology, ensuring maximum comfort and convenience, comes as standard on the G63 (as with all AMG models).
Automatic climate control and heated, electrically-adjustable seats guarantee that occupants are always refreshed and comfortable.
