A new prototype of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 has been snapped undergoing testing in the north of Sweden. As with previous prototypes, this example teases a selection of styling modifications which will adorn the finished model.
The most obvious point of difference between the next GLE 63 and the current model will be the inclusion of the firm’s now customary Panamericana front grille, visible beneath the camouflage in these spy shots.
Elsewhere, the updated model will wear an aggressive front fascia, tweaked headlights, taillights, and a revised front fascia.
Power for the ‘regular’ GLE 63 should be provided by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 delivering 563 hp. Those looking to show off at the pub will have the option of purchasing the GLE 63 S, complete with a 603 hp version of the same engine. For those AMG fanatics out there, you’ll know that these horsepower figures are identical to the E63 and E63 S.
To ensure that the hefty SUV can slow down as fast as it accelerates, AMG engineers will fit a set of huge brake calipers and discs. More-than-adequate tires will help to ensure blistering accelerating and deceleration performance too.
