2013 GL63 AMG

Combining exquisite craftsmanship, exceptional versatility and extraordinary performance, the GL63 AMG leaves the typical full-size SUV far, far behind.

By the numbers, the GL63 looks impressive: 550 horsepower, 560 lb-ft of torque and a top speed electronically capped at 155 mph. But a spec sheet doesn´t even begin to capture what makes this  handcrafted, 7-passenger vehicle truly remarkable. So you might say that classifying the GL63 as a high-performance SUV is akin to calling the summit of Kilimanjaro a lengthy hike.

Even so, the GL63 has been meticulously engineered to reward each and every step on the accelerator -- courtesy of a hand-built, 5.5-liter biturbo AMG engine that will plant you firmly in your seat. Its prodigious power is refined for delivery to all four wheels by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7-speed automatic transmission, equipped with three selectable driving modes and an automatic double-declutching function for smooth downshifts. This renowned transmission also features the fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop function, which switches off the engine at red lights and any other time the GL63 is at standstill.

Power delivery is further refined by advanced AMG adaptive suspension technology designed to lower the vehicle at higher speeds to minimize drag -- bringing driver and road even closer in the process. Other suspension features, such as automatic self-leveling and electronically controlled damping, help tame uncivilized on- and off-road surfaces to give whomever sits behind the wheel a feeling of total confidence and control.

Containing the GL63 AMG´s potent drivetrain is a chiseled physique that communicates both power and sophistication at every turn. Up front, an iconic, stalwart grille guards the famed three-pointed star while complementing the aggressively sculpted front valance - featuring with enlarged air intakes to facilitate proper air flow. From the side, the silhouette of the GL63 reveals finely tuned aerodynamics and a commanding presence through the melding of windswept lines and bold design, all accented by chrome trim. A dash of red brake calipers encased within 21-inch wheels is sure to catch many a leering eye, while the rear is underscored by the signature, quad trapezoidal tips of the AMG sports exhaust system.

Open the doors, and you´ll find an interior handcrafted to provide unparalleled levels of comfort, and well-being. Whether it´s the hand-fitted upholstery in premium leather, the heated and cooled sport seats accented by contrast stitching and metallic AMG Badges, or the leather-wrapped AMG performance steering wheel, painstaking attention to detail is evident in every square inch. As for the accommodations, the spacious seven-seat layout is as generous as it is versatile, with a split-folding 2nd row and an expansive cargo area that adapts to all sorts of freight -- four-legged or otherwise. To complete the feast for the senses, the GL63 AMG offers a custom Bang & Olufsen surround-sound system that can immerse each drive in an aural spectrum to match any environment.

Quite simply, the GL63 AMG will make its entrance in early 2013 eager for the plans you and the road have for it. And whether that´s fording the concrete canyons of the city, towing your Westphalian to the equestrian center, or simply a relaxing refuge from your daily routine, the GL63 accomplishes it with uncommon grace, exclusive refinement and commanding performance.
