Mercedes Benz to launch GL 63 AMG on April 15
The GL 63 AMG will join Mercedes’ high-performance AMG India line-up that includes the C 63 AMG, the G 63 AMG, the E 63 AMG and the SLK 55 AMG.
The 2.5-tonne, seven-seat GL gets the new 5.5-litre biturbo V8 engine, which sends 549bhp to the permanent, 40/60 front-rear biased four-wheel drive system.
A seven-speed 7G-Tronic AMG automatic gearbox is standard and helps the GL AMG to a 4.9sec (claimed) 0-100kph sprint. It has a 250kph limited top speed. Suspension comes via an ‘AMG ride control’ package of adaptive, self-levelling air suspension and active anti roll-bars.
The Mercedes GL 63 AMG will be a fully imported vehicle unlike the GL 350 CDI which is assembled in India.
