Here’s How The New Mercedes-Benz GLS Should Look In AMG 63 Guise

The new Mercedes-Benz GLS was recently launched at the New York Auto Show, and in the not-too-distant-future, a potent AMG GLS 63 variant will top its range.

The first 2020 GLS variant unveiled in the Big Apple was the GLS 580 4Matic model. This SUV features a 4.0-liter V8 with an EQ Boost 48-volt system and integrated starter-generator. The powertrain delivers 482 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque, but the starter-generator can provide an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque in small bursts.

A big Mercedes-Benz SUV with almost 500 hp should satisfy most customers, especially when you consider speed limits in most countries. However, no Merc model is ever complete without an AMG-prepped version, and thus a GLS 63 with upwards of 600 hp will join the super-SUV fray at some point.

To give us an idea of how such a model will look, J.B. Cars on Instagram has created these renderings. The front of the GLS 63 includes AMG’s signature Panamericana grille as well as massive air intakes. Elsewhere, a set of black wheels have been fitted over a set of bright red brake calipers. At the rear, you will notice a modified bumper which incorporates carbon fiber elements, a rear diffuser, and quad tailpipes.

The Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 is probably an overkill, and BMW has ruled out has ruled out an X7 M citing little to no customer demand, but for those looking for a full-size performance SUV, it should tick all the boxes. Plus, it should give Merc the chance to one-up its arch rival.

 

  • The GLS looks too gangster. They will sell lots of these to the Russians and Gangster Rappers. The X7 is way better.

    • Belthronding

      ..also don’t forget camel riders.

    • Bash

      If I had the money I would buy one as well, and I’m neither.
