The new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG stands for efficiency and performance
The new ML 63 AMG comes with a fascinating technology package: the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine features spray-guided direct petrol injection with piezo injectors, ECO start/stop system, an all-aluminium crankcase, four valves per cylinder with camshaft adjustment, air-water charge air cooling and generator management, for example.
With a displacement of 5461 cc, the eight-cylinder engine generates a maximum power output of 525 hp and 700 Newton metres of torque. In conjunction with the AMG Performance package these values rise to 557 hp and 760 Newton metres. This difference in power and torque results from an increase in the maximum charge pressure from 1.0 to 1.3 bar.
Both variants of the ML 63 AMG enable sports-car performance: acceleration from 0-62 mph is achieved in 4.8 seconds and 4.7 seconds if fitted with the AMG Performance Package, while the top speed stands at 155 mph (electronically limited). With or without AMG Performance package, the NEDC fuel consumption level of 23.9 mpg (276 g CO2/km) remains the same. The AMG Performance package further includes an engine cover in high-quality real carbon, callipers in red painted finish and the AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA.
The new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG stands for efficiency and performance, exclusivity and a superlative driving experience. Returning 23.9 mpg (NEDC combined, 276 g CO2/km), the high-performance SUV boasts a 28 per cent improvement in efficiency over its predecessor. The basis for this better fuel consumption and top-class performance is provided by the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine with a maximum power output of 525 hp and maximum torque of 700 Newton metres, representing an increase of 15 hp and 70 Newton metres. The optionally available AMG Performance package boosts the V8 engine's power output to 557 hp and its maximum torque to 760 Newton metres. The newly developed ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM for active roll stabilisation, the AMG-specific design and the broad scope of standard equipment and appointments provide for a highly attractive overall package.
Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, notes: "Like its predecessors, the new ML 63 AMG sets new standards in terms of performance, exclusivity and a superlative driving experience – plus the efficiency factor, which is acquiring ever greater emphasis at Mercedes-AMG. As the inventor of the high-performance SUV, we remain true to the philosophy which we introduced in 1999 with the ML 55 AMG and continued in 2005 with the ML 63 AMG."
