MERCEDES-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC AND G 63 ‘EDITION 463’
Mercedes-Benz India have introduced the all-new AMG GLS 63 4MATIC as well as the updated AMG G 63 in ‘Edition 463’ guise in India at Rs 1.58 crore and Rs 2.17 crore (ex-showroom, Pune) respectively.
The GLS 63 is a high-performance sport-luxury seven-seater that packs the M157 BiTurbo V8 that makes 585-PS. Paired to the sevenspeed AMG SpeedShift unit with 4MATIC all-wheel drive, it delivers all of 760 Nm that peaks from merely 1,750 rpm all the way up to 5,250. The bellowing V8 delivers effortless athletic performance, making it the most potent GLS on offer.
The second introduction is the G 63 ‘Edition 463’. While the G 63 was on sale here earlier as well, it was the 544-PS version. Now, in line with the global update, the swansong G-Class ups its game with 571 PS and 760 Nm, from the same M157 5.5-litre BiTurbo V8. The AMG SpeedShift seven-speed unit continues doing duty with the advanced 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system and makes short work of any terrain.
Both cars offer five Dynamic Select drive modes, AMG Ride Control, and a 40:60 split rear-biased power transfer, with the G 63 also packing three lockable differentials. Being on the ‘designo’ platform, both allow for a highly customisable interior.
