Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG Gets Reviewed by Jalopnik
text size: A- A+
The M157 5.5-liter V8 under the hood uses direct injection and two turbochargers to offer no less than 557 hp and an astounding 760 Nm (561 lb ft) of earth-moving torque.
It can therefore move the gargantuan 2580 kg (5687 lbs) of all-wheel drive mass from a stand still to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds, while with the help of the 7-speed MCT (Multi-Clutch Transmission) can give it an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Not bad for an SUV that can also conquer mountains with its seven passengers in total comfort.
The Jalopnik crew took a GL 63 AMG in on a road trip through the whole Northwestern part of the US and even a bit of Canada. If you want to read all about their adventures with the car you can do it here.
