The new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupé 4MATIC

  • Affalterbach/Detroit. With the new GLE 63 Coupé, Mercedes-AMG is in highly dynamic mood as it enters the 2015 automotive year. As another exciting interpretation of a four-door coupé, the commanding SUV meets the highest of standards in terms of performance, design and comfort. The powerful heart of the vehicle – the AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine – beats even faster in the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupé: in addition to the variant generating 410 kW (557 hp), there is also a highly sporty S-Model to choose from which is rated at 430 kW (585 hp). The perfect prerequisites for a highly dynamic on-road driving experience come courtesy of the suspension, which has been systematically designed for a sporty performance. The high-performance SUV coupé comes with the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with active roll stabilisation ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM and the Sports Direct-Steer system. The 4MATIC all-wheel drive with rear-biased power distribution and the DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes promise to deliver what distinguishes every AMG vehicle: driving performance.

    Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: "We see great potential in this vehicle segment, which is new to Mercedes- AMG. The GLE 63 Coupé is the logical progression of our ambitious growth strategy – after all, in 1999 with the first high-performance SUV ML 55 AMG, we established a completely new segment. The new GLE 63 Coupé will inspire SUV fans focused on dynamics while at the same time representing a new interpretation of driving performance.“

    Sportiness of a coupé, strengths of an SUV

    The new GLE 63 Coupé combines the sportiness of a coupé with the strengths of an SUV. High agility, distinctive engine sound and typical sports car acceleration are united with poise and assurance, tremendous pulling power and perfect traction.

    The typical SUV raised seating position and effortlessly unhurried superiority on the road, paired with typical AMG longitudinal and transverse dynamics and direct response to driver commands, result in an intense driving feel. The wide choice of different worlds of experience is based, among other things, on the DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, which for the first time permit such a wide spread of driving dynamics.

    The five transmission modes of “Slippery”, “Individual”, “Comfort”, “Sport” and “Sport Plus”, which the driver is able to select using a rotary control on the center console, deliver fundamentally different driving dynamics. Be it the response of the engine, the shift strategy of the transmission, ESP® thresholds, power assistance for the steering or characteristics of the dampers: the system networks all the control systems, generating different sets of parameters for distinct driving experiences.

    The AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine: powerful or extra-powerful

    In terms of drive system, GLE 63 Coupé customers have a choice between powerful and extra-powerful: the AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine develops a maximum power of 410 kW (557 hp) and a torque of 700 Newton-meters. The S-Model raises the respective values to 430 kW (585 hp) and 760 Newton- meters. The difference in output and torque comes courtesy of a higher maximum charge pressure.

    Whichever variant the customer opts for, the 8-cylinder powerplant, which is assembled according to the "one man, one engine" philosophy, delivers the familiar powerful performance: thus, the GLE 63 Coupé accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 or 4.2 seconds (S-Model). Fuel consumption values of 11.9 liters per 100 kilometers (NEDC (combined); CO2: 279 g/km) and compliance with the EU6 standard demonstrate that maximum power, efficiency and environmental compatibility are by no means mutually exclusive for Mercedes-AMG.

    As customary for a typical AMG model, the sound from the new GLE 63 Coupé is unmistakable. Customers can further emphasise the distinctive engine sound from the sports exhaust system, because a Performance exhaust system is optionally available for both output variants. Those who value a more noticeable sound can opt for an even more emotively appealing V8 engine sound – and can experience the dynamic performance even more intensely.
