Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 4MATIC
The overall silhouette of the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupé appears ready for the next challenge at any time: Whatever the challenge – it does not matter to the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupé: It exudes cultivated tranquility on every surface and at the same time embodies powerful dynamism. Driving performance follows its own laws. This claim is brought to life by the design and performance of the Coupé. Behind the front spoiler with the characteristic A-wing beats the heart of the AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine: 410 kW (575 hp) are waiting to be unleashed.

Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupé.
The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupé with its characteristic lines skillfully embodies the firmly established principles of Mercedes-Benz design: sensuousness and clarity. The top-of-the- range V8 model from Affalterbach manages in an emotively appealing way to bring the fascination of motor sport to everyday life with a powerful dominance. A very first glance reveals the new four-door coupé to be an extrovert, proudly standing on its large wheels.
The GLE 63 Coupé is the first SUV from Affalterbach to adopt the AMG design philosophy, familiar from many other high-performance vehicles, with the characteristic "A-wing" in the front apron. This makes the SUV coupé clearly recognizable as a member of the AMG model family. Viewed from the front, the model's sculptural design idiom is also defined by the engine cover with its two dynamic powerdomes and new radiator grille – as is typical of AMG, it features a twin louvre in silver chrome as well as a large, central Mercedes star.

AMG Body Styling.
The GLE 63 Coupé is the first SUV from Affalterbach to adopt the AMG design philosophy, familiar from many other high-performance vehicles, with the characteristic "A-wing" in the front apron. This makes the SUV coupé clearly recognizable as a member of the AMG model family. Viewed from the front, the model's sculptural design idiom is also defined by the engine cover with its two dynamic powerdomes and new radiator grill – as is typical of AMG, it features a twin louvre in silver chrome as well as a large, central Mercedes star.
AMG Front Apron & Radiator Grille.
The GLE 63 Coupé displays visual dominance with its "A-wing". This design feature in the form of the stylized "A", a hallmark of AMG, is three-dimensional and also serves as an air guide for the three air openings. The A-wing is painted in the color of the vehicle, while the trim strip is in silver chrome. The new front view is especially characterized by the two lateral, large air inlets, while the above-positioned, black flics ensure an optimal flow of air onto the cooling modules. At the lower end of the front apron, a front splitter in the color of the vehicle helps to reduce lift.
AMG Light-Alloy Wheels.
The extroverted look is enhanced by impressive AMG 10-spoke light-alloy wheels of size 53.3 cm (21-inch) with tires of size 285/45 R 21 (front axle) and 325/40 R 21 (rear axle).
Available as an optional extra are 55.9 cm (22-inch) AMG cross-spoke light-alloy wheels in titanium gray and with a high-sheen finish or in matt black and with a high-sheen finish with 285/40 R 22 on 10 J x 22 ET56 (front) and 325/35 R 22 on 11.5 J x 22 ET42 (rear).
Flared Wheel Arches.
Flared wheel arches in black make for a systematic continuation of the visual dominance along the sides. Behind the wheel cutout, "V8 BITURBO" lettering points to the superior engine power of the GLE 63 Coupé.
The rear end of the vehicle shows clear similarities with the design of the S-Class Coupé: with its narrow tail lights in three-dimensional look, above-positioned, broad chrome badge and prominently placed Mercedes star, the GLE 63 Coupé has a decidedly sporty look. Mercedes-AMG reinforces the visual dynamics with some specific design elements: the spoiler lip on the boot lid further improves the driving stability at high speeds, while the lateral air outlets in the rear apron improve the cd value. The AMG rear apron is given a dynamic look by diffuser fins and the integrated, chrome-plated twin tailpipe trims of the sports exhaust system. The shape of the black trim strip is reminiscent of the "A-wing" in the front apron. As a result of the new nomenclature, the prominent AMG lettering is placed to the left of the Mercedes star, with the model identification GLE 63 to the right.
AMG Exhaust System.
The emotional AMG typical V8 sound of the AMG Sports exhaust system is particularly powerful when accelerating and during double declutching. At constant speed the noise level is more reserved. Two chrome-plated twin tailpipe trim elements create a visually striking highlight.
The AMG performance exhaust system is available as an optional extra. It thrills the driver with even sportier sound characteristics.
From the outside, the motorsport genes of the GLE 63 Coupé are clearly visible. On the inside, however, exclusive design and equipment elements prevail. High-grade materials, first-class precision and a luxurious quality feel produce a fascination potential typical of AMG. Trim elements in light longitudinal-grain aluminum provide clever highlights.
Thanks to their specific upholstery with greater contouring and higher side bolsters at the front, the sports seats offer excellent lateral support. Perforated nappa leather, special seat upholstery layout with topstitching and AMG badges make for an exclusive look and feel, which is further complemented by the 3-spoke Performance steering wheel: the steering-wheel rim, with flattened bottom section, in black nappa leather with perforated grip area, assists a sporty driving style. Silver aluminum shift paddles with "UP" and "DOWN" lettering and a precise pressure point act as an invitation to manual gear changing.

AMG Instrument Cluster.
Two large round dials with silver chrome surrounds and the central 11.4 cm (4.4-inch) multifunction display provide the driver with comprehensive information. The typical AMG equipment package includes sporty dials in carbon-fiber look with 320 km/h speedometer scale and red pointers, as well as the main menu including RACETIMER, manual gear indicator and AMG start- up screen.
AMG Performance Steering Wheel.
The steering-wheel rim, with flattened bottom section, in black nappa leather with perforated grip area, assists a sporty driving style. Silver aluminum shift paddles with "UP" and "DOWN" lettering and a precise pressure point act as an invitation to manual gear changing. For even more grip when carrying out sporty driving maneuvers, the AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather optionally features a grip area upholstered in DINAMICA microfiber.
The instrument panel on the GLE 63 Coupé is in black ARTICO man-made leather. The partially integrated central display visualizes the individual DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes with animated graphics. The center console accommodates the COMAND controller with optimally ergonomically positioned touchpad; on the right is the DYNAMIC SELECT rotary actuator for the various transmission modes. Located above is the M button for the manual transmission mode.
High agility, distinctive engine sound and typical sports car acceleration are united with poise and assurance, tremendous pulling power and perfect traction. The new GLE 63 Coupé combines the sportiness of a coupé with the strengths of an SUV.
The typical SUV raised seating position and effortlessly unhurried superiority on the road, paired with typical AMG longitudinal and transverse dynamics as well as the 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.

AMG 5.5-Liter-V8-Biturbo Engine.
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 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 seconds. 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.
Power Transmission: AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC.
The power transmission, too, is made to measure. Depending on the mode selected for the variable dynamic handling control system DYNAMIC SELECT, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC impresses with its great agility and superior responsiveness. The transmission has a wide-ranging potential. It offers an impressively high shift speed and perfect transitions for a sportier driving style as well as smooth, barely perceptible gear changes for enjoyable cruising.
AMG RIDE CONTROL Sport Suspension.
The AMG RIDE CONTROL sport suspension with AIRMATIC package, consisting of air suspension, special damper struts, automatic level control and infinitely variable damping characteristics ADS Plus, is combined with the active roll stabilization ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM. This standard-fit system employs active anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles to reduce the body's roll angle during cornering. The reduced roll angle and outstanding cornering properties make for enhanced transverse dynamics and driving pleasure. At the same time, the system provides increased driving stability and, therefore, safety, especially at higher speeds.
Perfect interplay between all systems makes for a superior experience in the cockpit – whatever the driving situation or road conditions. As an additional bonus, DYNAMIC SELECT modifies the driving dynamics in no time at all. The GLE 63 Coupé adapts its character at lightning speed, depending on which transmission mode is activated. In “Comfort” mode, the control thresholds of the dynamic handling control systems ASR, ESP® with Dynamic Cornering Assist and the all-wheel drive control system 4ETS are configured for moderate, restrained dynamics. “Sport” and “Sport Plus” permit greater longitudinal and transverse dynamics for more intense driving pleasure. In “Slippery transmission” mode, on the other hand, the focus is on optimum traction and maximum driving stability in adverse road conditions. “Individual” mode allows the drivers to design their own personal set-up consisting of engine characteristics, shift strategy and damper settings.
With 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive, Mercedes-AMG uses a specially designed transfer case: this exclusive solution distributes the drive power in a ratio of 40:60 between the front and rear axles, resulting in greater agility about the vertical axis of the vehicle. The pay-off for the driver: even greater driving pleasure during high-speed cornering.
