  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

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.
