The new Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupe 4MATIC

Driving performance reinterpreted

Affalterbach/Detroit.  With the new GLE63 S Coupe, Mercedes-AMG is introducing another highly dynamic model as it enters the 2015 automotive year. An exciting interpretation of a four-door coupe, this commanding SUV meets the highest standards in terms of performance, design and comfort. The highly sporty Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupe is powered by an AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine that is rated at 577 horsepower. The perfect prerequisites for a highly dynamic on-road driving experience come courtesy of the suspension, which has been systematically designed for sporty performance. The high-performance SUV coupe comes with the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with active roll stabilization 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 GLE63 Coupe is the logical progression of our ambitious growth strategy – after all, in 1999 with the first high-performance SUV ML55 AMG, we established a completely new segment. The new GLE63 Coupe will inspire SUV fans focused on dynamics while at the same time representing a new interpretation of driving performance.”
