2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 63 comes by his speed by an infusion of aftermarket add-ons, but with proper design and engineering from the beginning. 2017 Mercedes-AMG model, the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 is hand-assembled by the skilled team of AMG technicians in a facility in Affalterbach, Germany. While the 5.5-liter is not new for 2017, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 63 AMG succeed an additional 27 ponies from the engine, which now produces 577 horsepower harvest; torque increased by 1 lb-ft, to 561, but its full shock now comes online in 1750 rpm, slightly earlier than before.
While the non-AMG 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLC-Class models have a new nine-speed automatic transmission, the GLS63 retain the familiar AMG Speedshift Plus seven-speed automatic, which is tailored to play nicely with rear biased all-wheel-drive calibration the GLS63 s. While it is possible that this power supply will enable the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS63 capable of 4.8-second time we recorded beating a 2013 GL63 AMG, our test team thinks it will not be a lot faster be. On the road, the drive comes on early, throwing about 5,800 pounds of AMG on the horizon with more aggression than necessarily appears in polite company.
2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 63 Interior
Tasked with putting the kibosh on these proceedings, 15.4-inch front, and 14.2-inch rear brake rotors replaced the GLS550’s 14.8- and 13.6-inch units (the GLS350d and GLS450 do relatively insignificant 13.8- and 13.6-inch rotors). While brake pedal action is far from telepathic, it is dramatically improved over the gooey brake feeling that our long-term 2013 GL450 harassed. Stamp pedal and the brakes drag this great man of the speed without drama. The application of light pressure while cutting the canyon roads that run across the region Moab extracts an equally composed reaction, which is good, as errors can have serious consequences here. We’re pretty sure we have more than a burnt Suburban rotting in the valleys below.
Like all GLS models, GLS63 comes standard with air sprung Airmatic suspension, in this case, recalibrated for AMG-specific duty. The choice of Sport + mode via the console-mounted Dynamic Select control to change the damping characteristics as well as the optimization of the transfer mapping-for spirited driving. Good as it is, the suspension of the sound of 21-inch 295/40 Continental summer tires slap on pride expansion strips or rush through a deep crater in the road can not hide. Sounds aside, the suspension does a good job of mitigating such impacts, and minimal intrusion on cabin comfort.
