Mercedes-Benz AMG

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 63 S SUV is the only V8, biturbo-powered, compact SUV. According to Mercedes, it’ll do 0–60 mph in 3.6 seconds, which makes for a quick dash to the mini-mart.

Combine AMG performance with Mercedes’ GLC SUV and what do you get? A GLC 63 S SUV powered by an AMG 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine with 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. This high-output engine was previously only used in the GLC Coupe previously. AMG’s biturbo engine features unique turbocharger positioning, not outside the cylinder banks, but inside the “V”. Advantages are its compact size and quick response. The AMG performance-exhaust system’s adjustable flaps open depending on driver input, drive program selected, and engine speed.

The GLC 63 S SUV launched in Europe in 2018. At that time, a 7.49.369-second Nürburgring lap made it the fastest SUV. The GLC 63 S remains among the top of its class in vehicle dynamics and performance. Adaptive damping air suspension, all-wheel drive with variable torque distribution, and a high-performance brake system give it the performance chops it needs if it wants to stay at the top of the class.

Mercedes-AMG offers a number of options to fatten the AMG GLC 63 S SUV’s bottom line. Here are some exterior options: AMG aero package, exterior carbon fiber package, AMG night package, and the AMG performance studio package. Inside, you’ll find AMG performance seats, a selection of leather upholstery selections, and trim options including AMG carbon fiber. You didn’t expect all this goodness without a little ‘fat’, now did you?

Deliveries of the 2022 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S SUV will begin in the fourth quarter of 2021.
