It wasn’t too much to understand that Mercedes-Benz will built an AMG63 once it was installed in other cars from the same brand.
Mercedes unveiled the brand new M-Class at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, a vehicle that underpinned a number of other crossovers. Ahead of the motor show debut, Mercedes has released a number of photos showing the lines of the ML 63 AMG, as well as the preliminary technical details. The big news is that that it will use the fresh 5.5-liter V8 twin-turbo which offers 518 hp and 700 (516 lb-ft) of torque. Instead of focusing on massive power increases (the new generation only bring 15 hp more), the AMG gets much better mileage, improved by 33 percent.

However, you can’t call it slow either, because the ML63 AMG with the AMG Performance package can do 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds, which matched with the top speed of 155 mph or 250 km/h (electronically limited), is quite impressive. Part of Mercedes-Benz’s new naming scheme, the ML 63 AMG became the GLE 63 of Mercedes-AMG in 2015.
The transmission is an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic and sends the power to the all four wheels via the 4Matic system. The driver has the option of changing the gears by himself via the paddles behind the steering wheel.

The second generation of the Mercedes-Benz ML-Class was launched in 2005 and, despite the fact that it wasn’t old looking, only three years later the facelift was introduced at the 2008 New York Auto Show.
The ML 63 AMG went through the same process of the facelift. The massive, two-ton super-SUV, featured a grille with two horizontal bars and the big, three-star logo, in the middle. The bumper featured an additional grille and scoops for cooling the brakes and other radiators. The headlights and the taillights were slightly revised when compared to its predecessor. The new, twin-spoke wheel design was fitted as standard, unlike the star-design with a simple five-spoke from the pre-facelift model. In the back, two chromed twin exhausts stamped with the AMG letters were a final touch to the performance SUV.

Inside, the steering wheel featured a new design, with perforated leather on the grip area. A Nappa-trim was available as an option for the dashboard. The telematics system featured the Audio 20 fitted as standard. The car was offered with optional voice-commands.

Under the hood, the ML 63 AMG featured the same 6.2-liter V8 engine. It was still naturally aspirated and offered 510 hp, the same as before. The power was transferred via the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission with three drive modes.

The second generation of the ML received an AMG treatment in 2005.
The engineers took a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine and slammed it under the hood of an ML, and this is how the first ML 63 AMG was born.

On the outside, the flared wheel-arches and the quad chromed oval exhausts will let the connoisseurs know that this is a serious vehicle. On the front fenders, the 63 AMG badge will confirm that supposition. Standard 19” light-alloy wheels were fitted as standard. High-sheen 20” AMG light-alloy wheels in a five-spoke design with 295/40 R 20 wide-base tires are available as an option. Front- and rear-specific bumpers and the AMG-specific grille were installed as well.

The luxurious interior is typical for an M-Class, but there are some features that are somehow different. The materials quality is different than on the other MLs, for example. The leather seats and polished aluminum were part of the equation. A new Harmann-Kardon sound system was available as an option.

On the central console, there are buttons for the ESP programs and a button for the adaptive dampers. The regular ML could be equipped with air-suspension and the AMG version didn’t lose that. It had settings for comfort or for sport mode. In the latter, the vehicle’s body-roll is reduced so hard-cornering is not an issue anymore.

The 510 hp engine was mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox with manual/sport/comfort modes. Its performance was high, with a 5-second sprint from 0 to 100 kph (0-62 mph).

The 2002 refresh brought little changes to the already outstandingly built vehicle.
The car returned to the AMG labs for further tweaks where it received a beefed-up 5.5 L V8 engine with a higher power output than that of the previous model, a slightly redesigned interior and a variety of other features including a power sunroof, rain-sensing wipers and the very practical front seat and mirror memory. The slightly altered front end gets a pair of dual-Xenon headlights while suspension is mated to a set of 18” alloy wheels with wide tires for enhanced grip.

After a great start with important sales for the 1997 Mercedes-Benz ML, the company decided to drop a big, performant, 5.5-liter V8 under the hood of its first SUV. And so, the 1999 AMG version of the ML-Class was born.

The body-on-frame idea remained the same, but it was adapted to accommodate full independent suspension, both front, and rear, bolted to sub-frames that were designed to absorb the energy of a collision. There were ten bushings between the bodywork and the sub-frames to reduce the road noise and bumps in the road. For the AMG version, side skirts and painted flared wheel-arches were installed. These created space for 285/50 R18 tires and improved the visual appeal. Standard 9 x 18” light-alloy AMG five-spoke wheels were installed. In the rear, under the redesigned bumper a dual chrome-finish exhaust alluded its AMG provenience.

Inside, the ML featured elements from other Mercedes-Benz cars, such as the steering wheel, the dashboard, buttons, and commands. For the ML 55 AMG, the car featured luxury sports seats with buffalo leather covers, surrounded by dark-brown burr-walnut wood trim and velour carpets. Also included in the standard equipment were xenon headlights, a power tilting/sliding sunroof, and an MB Audio 30 stereo car system.

The 5.5-liter engine was modified from the 5.0-liter V8 from the S-Class. Its high-performance camshafts were designed for motorsport and it offered its peak torque at 2800 rpm, which was very good for a heavy vehicle such as the ML. It was mated to a 5-speed automatic and the standard ESP (Electronic Stability Program) was calibrated for better road-performance.
