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.
An even more emotional V8 sound experience comes courtesy of the optional AMG Performance exhaust system. Powerful, audible acceleration and a full double-declutching function deliver an impressive acoustic effect.
LED Intelligent Light System.
For the best possible visibility on country roads and freeways, when cornering and on bends, the low beam mode of the LED Intelligent Light System automatically adapts to the weather, lighting and driving conditions. The LED Intelligent Light System thus makes a key contribution to safe driving. LED technology impresses with its very low energy consumption, long operating life and pleasant white light that comes close to the spectrum of natural daylight.
The five functions of the LED Intelligent Light System:
- Country mode illuminates the vehicle-side road verge more brightly and extensively than conventional low beam.
- Freeway mode is switched on from a speed of 90 km/h. Initially, the light output is increased for better illumination of the road and side verges. From 110 km/h, the range of the light beam is increased.
- Cornering lights improve road illumination by shedding more light on the cornering side.
- The active light function pivots the headlamps into bends, enabling the driver to see much further.
- The enhanced fog lamp function illuminates the outer half of the carriageway more effectively while reducing the glare due to light reflected by the fog.
Also in the interior, the new GLE 63 S demonstrates what makes a true AMG Performance automobile. Exquisite materials, first-class workmanship and maximum precision create a unique driving experience. Design and equipment underscore the exclusive high-end positioning.

Animated graphics on the partially integrated central display visualize the individual DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes. The center console houses the COMAND controller, to the right of which is the DYNAMIC SELECT rotary control for the various transmission modes. Located above is the "M" button for the manual transmission mode.
Perforated nappa leather sports seats with special upholstery layout and topstitching as well as AMG badges make for an exclusive look and feel. Thanks to their specific upholstery with greater contouring and higher side bolsters at the front, the sports seats offer excellent lateral support. This is further complemented by the three-spoke Performance steering wheel: the steering wheel rim, with flattened bottom section, in black nappa leather with the grip area in DINAMICA microfiber, is beneficial to a sporty driving style. Silver aluminum shift paddles with "UP" and "DOWN" lettering and precise pressure point act as an invitation to manual gear changing.

Superior everyday practicality and perfect traction, sports car agility and spontaneous throttle response – the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S guarantees its driver an exclusive driving experience. This is due in large part to DYNAMIC SELECT. Whether it be throttle response, gear-shift strategy, ESP® thresholds, steering power assist or exclusive AMG continuous damper adjustment, the system networks all the control systems to generate a wide variety of distinct driving experiences.
For the AMG Performance 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive, Mercedes-AMG uses a specially designed transfer case. This exclusive solution splits the torque in a ratio of 40:60 between the front and rear axles to provide higher agility about the vertical axis of the vehicle. The Sports Direct-Steer system too has been fundamentally revised and adapted to the driving dynamics of the performance SUV. The moderate variable steering ratio makes for significantly improved agility, while high-speed driving safety is maintained.

AMG 5.5-Liter-V8-Biturbo Engine.
The engine in the new GLE 63 S, the AMG 5.5-Liter V8 Biturbo, is now even more powerful. The increase by 44 kW (60 hp) to 430 kW (585 hp) delivers significantly improved performance, with the GLE 63 S accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds (ML 63 AMG: 4.8 seconds). Despite the increased power output and improved acceleration, fuel consumption remains at the level of the previous model. The V8 from Affalterbach thus demonstrates its high efficiency. The increased output and torque of the S-Model are the result of a higher maximum boost pressure. The GLE 63 S features an additional charge-air cooler in the left-hand wheel housing. Both models benefit from the favorable aerodynamic positioning of the engine oil cooler in the front section.
Power Transmission: AMG SPEEDSHIFT plus 7G-TRONIC.
With 7 gears, 3 transmission modes and the automatic double-declutching function, this transmission based on 7G-TRONIC PLUS enables both an extremely sporty and fuel-efficient driving style. Depending on the preferred driving style, the driver has a choice between efficient and comfortable in transmission mode "C" (Controlled Efficiency), brisk and sporty in "S" (Sport) or manual in "M." A modified accelerator pedal curve and more direct throttle response result in even more agility and driving pleasure in the "S" and "M" modes. The automatic double-declutching function provides for a more emotionally appealing experience and minimizes load cycles, which has a particularly positive effect when braking into bends and improves handling safety on wet and slippery surfaces. Transmission mode "C" allows comfortable driving at low engine speeds. In this transmission mode the ECO Start/Stop function is available. This enables fuel consumption to be effectively reduced.
AIRMATIC Package Inclusive ADS PLUS.
The combination of air suspension and the Adaptive Damping System ADS PLUS provides good ride comfort whilst also ensuring excellent driving dynamics both on and off-road.
