Car and Driver: Mercedes-AMG GLC63 Is Happening, But Not As a Coupe

Recommended Posts

2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43

Mercedes-Benz has just launched the coupe version of the GLC-class crossover SUV, but for the sportiest variant of the model line, you need to stick with the regular bodystyle. While both the GLC and the GLC coupe will be available with a twin-turbocharged, 362-hp 3.0-liter V-6 as the Mercedes-AMG GLC43 (pictured), sources have confirmed to us that only the regular GLC will come with the ultra-powerful 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. It will be called, you guessed it, the Mercedes-AMG GLC63.

It’s likely that Daimler will offer the GLC63 in two power levels: a Mercedes-AMG GLC63 with 469 horsepower—and a Mercedes-AMG GLC63 S with 503 horsepower. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph will take around 4 seconds, and top speed for the regular model will be governed at 155 mph, while the S version could get a 174-mph limiter. Designed by the Mercedes-AMG performance division in Affalterbach, Germany, the GLC63 models will receive large front air intakes, fender extensions, and quad exhaust outlets.

In the marketplace, the top-dog GLC’s only direct competitor will be the Porsche Macan Turbo; neither Audi’s Q5 nor BMW’s X3 and the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque offer similarly powerful models. Pricing for the Mercedes-AMG GLC63 will start at around $65,000; expect it to arrive at dealerships by late 2017.
