The front fascia’s distinctive air intakes with large air vents air curtains, flics help direct airflow and give this 63 S an aggressive appearance. Additionally, there are model-specific panel sills and a diffuser board in the rear.
The rear looks more modern and fresh, with the taillights joined with a dark strip, and the clusters themselves looking well-defined and an angular. The entire rear end is more athletic and sporty with two trapezoidal exhaust outlets completing the entire view. A panoramic roof spoiler and a rear one are also part of the package. 20-inch wheels will be available from the beginning, but there are likely to be different styles to choose from. The exterior colors of the Mercedes-AMG GLC63 SUV aren’t available yet however we’d like to see a custom-designed paint scheme. The vehicles pictured here appear to be sporting Starling Blue metallic and a terrifying matte grey that fits very well with the SUV’s dimensions.

Curb weight of GLC 63 S E Performance GLC 63 S E Performance has not yet been confirmed, but considering that the previous model has already crossed the 4,500-pound mark, and the new GLC 63 S will have hybrid components that will add to the weight, we can expect a curbweight close to 4,800 pounds.
Engine And Performance
Although the design of the brand new AMG GLC 63 SUV may not be an extreme change from the previous model however, the engine could not be different. The first model was a custom-built AMG-fettled 4.0-liter V8 that had specifications of 503 hp and 516 lb-ft. it’s now an engine that’s Turbocharged 2.0-liter 4 cylinder hybrid.

This configuration can make the GLC 62 accelerate from 0-60 mph within 3.4 seconds, thanks to the fully adjustable 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system. The top speed is electronically restricted to 171 miles per hour.
The turbocharger used in this setup is an adaptation of the technology employed in AMG Petronas Formula 1. AMG Petronas Formula 1 racing division. This is an electric exhaust-gas turbocharger with a small electric motor built directly into it. It is used to increase the speed of the compressor wheel prior to when the exhaust gas flow is able to take over. The result is immediate reaction, more torque at low speeds, and a better-maintained boost pressure.
The AWD setup has plenty of grip. It is powered by the nine-speed Speedshift multi-clutch transmission. Additionally, should there be slippage at the rear wheel, energy will shift to the front wheel for greater grip. The nine-speeder has been honed to provide short shift times as well as multiple downshits in rapid succession as well as Sport or Sport+ mode lets double-clutching. Naturally, there’s an Race Start function for controlled launches.

Where the original model featured an unassuming central display above the dash, and had HVAC vents beneath it, the new layout includes the enormous central display on the center console, and orients it towards the driver’s. The vents are positioned on top of this and it has a very simple design (read that there aren’t any buttons or controls).
The infotainment system runs MBUX and has AMG-specific screens and functions available there. Its instrument cluster design is distinct, and the Supersport graphics style displays specific information geared towards drivers in a horizontal layout.
