Few people know that when its first generation was launched, the full-size Mercedes-Benz GL was supposed to be called the G-Class and it was actually developed as a replacement for the aging G-Wagen.
Fortunately, after a range of protests from hardcore fans of the G-Class all over the world, the GL-Class became a stand alone model.

Now at its second generation, the only SUV with standard seven seats in the Mercedes-Benz range has also received a bonkers AMG version.

Sharing its twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V8 with the performance package version of the ML 63 AMG, the M157 unit of the GL 63 AMG offers no less than 557 hp (550 bhp) and 760 Nm (561 lb ft) of torque.

In perfect conditions, those figures are enough to move the 2580 kg (5688 pounds) of all-wheel drive mass from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds, onwards to an electronically-limited top speed of 150 km/h (155 mph).

After earlier we told you about the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG review made by Truck Trend, it is now time to tell you about their short review of its larger nephew, the GL 63 AMG.
