Mercedes-AMG has unveiled a new GLE63 model, which will serve as a replacement for the ML63 AMG. The base variant develops 550 hp from its 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, while the highly sporty S-Model is rated at 577 hp.

The chassis was completely revised to deliver better driving dynamics and agility. The throttle response of the engine and the shift times of the transmission are now on an even sportier level and thereby underscore the AMG Driving Performance. With the characteristic AMG family face featuring twin-blade radiator grille, the GLE63 also has a more dynamic appearance than before.

From now on, the new GLE63 also sports the distinctive "A-wing" in the front bumper, which is characteristic for the AMG design philosophy. The design of the radiator grille with the silver chrome double louvre, the integrated AMG lettering and the central Mercedes star are distinguishing features of current AMG Performance automobiles.

As standard, tires of size 265/45 R20 are mounted on 9J x 20 AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels painted titanium grey with high-sheen finish. Optionally the GLE63 can be upgraded in terms of looks and driving dynamics with tires of size 295/35 R21.

The black diffuser insert in the rear bumper with black trim strip in the shape of the front "A-wing" represents typical motor racing design. The special exhaust system with two chrome-plated dual tailpipe embellishers and "AMG" lettering underscores the sportiness and exclusivity.

In the interior, aluminum trim with longitudinal grain in the black MB-Tex man-made leather instrument panel set attractive highlights. Perforated nappa leather sports seats with special upholstery layout and topstitching as well as AMG badges make for an exclusive look and feel. Thanks to their specific upholstery with greater contouring and higher side bolsters at the front, the sports seats offer good lateral support. The fitting complement is the 3-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel with flat bottom and silver paddle shifters with "UP" and "DOWN" lettering.

Two tube-shaped round dials with silver chrome surrounds and the central 11.4-cm (4.4-inch) multifunction display provide the driver with comprehensive information. The typical AMG equipment scope includes sporty dials in carbon-fiber appearance with a 200 mph speedometer scale, AMG lettering and red pointers, as well as the main menu including RACETIMER, manual gear indicator and AMG start-up screen. The top-of-the-line Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S model offers nappa leather exclusive AMG upholstery in addition.

The high-performance SUV model celebrates its world premiere at the New York International Auto Show.
