All-New ML 63 AMG Performance SUV Delivers 503 Horsepower

The Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG celebrates the debut of the all-new AMG-developed 6.3-liter V8 engine, providing a unique combination of high-revving power in a large displacement engine. The newest addition to the AMG lineup made its U.S. retail debut in Spring 2006.

Distinguished as the first unique engine developed entirely by AMG, the new 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine produces an astonishing 503 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and maximum torque of 465 lb-ft at 5,200 rpm. The 6.3-liter V8 also features four valves per cylinder and four continuously variable overhead camshafts to ensure maximum performance in all driving situations. When compared to the preceding ML 55 AMG, the new ML 63 AMG generates 46 percent more output and 23 percent more torque. This powerful engine is mated to an AMG Speedshift 7-speed automatic transmission with a Direct Select shift lever mounted by the steering wheel. Three shift modes (Sport, Comfort and Manual) can be selected via a switch in the center console, and vary shift characteristics to suit different driving situations.

As in a Formula 1 racing car, the seven gears can be changed using the gearshift buttons on the AMG ergonomic sport steering wheel. The permanent four-wheel drive of the Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG has been optimized for sport-oriented driving, delivering power to the front and rear axles with a 40:60 percent bias front to rear.

The AMG 6.3-liter V8-engine provides the performance levels of a sports car, with acceleration from zero to 60 in under 5.0 seconds and a maximum speed of 155 mph (electronically limited).

AMG Sports Suspension and AMG High-Performance Braking System

The AMG-developed Airmatic sports suspension system ensures high cornering speeds, precise directional stability and low levels of body roll while providing excellent long-distance comfort. The air suspension features AMG-specific damper struts and the specially configured adaptive damping system ADS. A level control system automatically lowers the suspension at higher speeds.

Outside, the ML 63 is distinguished by standard 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels incorporating a five-spoke design with 295/45 R19 tires (an optional 20-inch wheel and tire package will be offered). Short braking distances are guaranteed by the AMG high-performance braking system, which features internally ventilated and slotted brake discs at all four corners.

Striking Appearance With AMG Styling And Flared Fenders

Wide, muscular, with a broad stance and poised to leap forward - the visual appearance of the new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG immediately confirms its special position in the range. The athletic design of this powerful SUV is characterized by its striking AMG styling with a front and rear apron, an AMG-specific radiator grille, flared fenders, stainless steel running boards with rubber studs and tinted rear lights. Both visually and acoustically, the AMG sport exhaust system with two chrome-plated twin tail-pipes emphasizes the power and dynamism of the top-of-the-range model in the M-Class.

Dynamically Designed Interior with Exclusive Standard Appointments

Sportiness is also the order of the day in the interior of the ML 63 AMG. The exclusive interior features include AMG sport seats with Nappa leather upholstery, Alcantara inserts in the shoulder areas, a multicontour function and heating, the AMG ergonomic leather sports steering wheel with gearshift buttons, AMG door sills and stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs. The AMG instrument cluster is equally dynamic with its AMG-specific lettering, red needles and 200 mph speedometer.

The Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG also meets the highest requirements in terms of safety: standard safety features include the preventive occupant protection system PRE-SAFE, crash-responsive NECK-PRO head restraints in the first seat row, adaptive, two-stage airbags for the driver and front passenger, front sidebags, windowbags and belt tensioners and belt force limiters for all the seats.
