The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 SUV you joined me inside of the cabin of the 2021 Mercedes AMG GLS 63 4matic Plus this is an extreme vehicle and I don't just mean all of the, letters and numbers making up its name it is 603 horsepower three rows of seating and. The most sophisticated convenience technologies I've ever seen on a vehicle so let's dive in shall we there's the big girl I won't spend too, much time on the exterior because there's so much unpack on the. Interior of this vehicle and that and the driving experience I think are the most impressive parts of this vehicles so I won't spend a ton, of time out here I will point out the AMG specific stuff that distinguish this from. The GLS 580 and up here at the front the first thing you're gonna notice is am G's panamericana. Grill they put that on all their models here it is absolutely Giants but it it pulls it off with this being a three, row full-size SUV and you've got AMG's sorry mercedes-benz is crest smack dab in the middle also huge I mean here's my hand for reference have a large sized hand it is the, full. Size of this crest so it's it's just huge and then you've got above that a more ornate mercedes-benz crest LED headlights are standard along with these LED daytime running lights nothing too fancy. Here but there's a little bit of artful work on the LED beams themselves and down, here this is specific AMG stuff for this lower fascia. Adequate cooling for that Biturbo v8 no fake vents down there larger lower air dam and then this has the AMG Knight package on this particular model and that brings with it black touches for. This lower bumper trim and, the door mirrors and the roof rails and then the quad exhaust ports in the back and diffuser and I'll get there in a second use your front angle view looks. Appropriately aggressive and I'm gonna jump right into the wheels these are the 23 inch matte black options and they're forty-nine hundred and, fifty dollars extra so you really have to love them and I think they're good but I think there are better. Options for example Angie offers their classic mono block wheels which looks so good and in a vehicle. Of this size they would just be such a baller move so if I'm gonna.
Pay extra money for wheels I'm gonna get those and blacked out or you know just an alloy paint not really sure I'd practiced gonna, scream statement I'd go chrome I'm not a huge fan of chrome but for something like this. Part of the Russian mob I'm gonna get my chrome mono block wheels we have flared wheel arches that are specific to.
The GLS 63 so you're not going to find. These on the 580 you can see more more pronounced in the back the profile itself I like I think it's improved over the generations, for the GLS and on you know good sized wheels like this it's it's pretty less van like I think than previous generations that's probably what I like most about it and. Then we get to the back here and we, see a couple things one mercedes-benz is latest LED light signature for the taillights is here they've got this on everything from from the GLB up to this. GLS and they're kind of funky designs I like I'm AMG badging up there this chrome. Strip runs from just above the tail light on the side of the car all the way. Across the tailgate and wraps around to the other side GLS 63 badging the night package brings more black trim from up here, and then black trimmed down here in the AMG specific diffuser so super aggressive down here and. The trapezoidal exhausts and they're not just finishers those are actually four pipes in there one two three four so genuine quad exhaust here and the tailpipes. Themselves have the black finisher on them too again all part of that AMG Knight packaging so yeah it's a smooth but especially with. The AMG treatment more you know confident exterior for the GLS 63 but as. We'll see compared to the interior this is just ho-hum let's get inside this beast and see where the goods are pop it on and.
Like all. Modern mercedes-benz vehicles we've got this twin fully digital display set up on what mercedes-benz calls a surfboard I like the name for it basically just this continuous housing.
That looks super clean and you've got your digital instrument cluster to the left, and the infotainment to the right both operating we're saying per se these Benzes latest software they called mb ux & bucks for short and it's. Super cool so much configuration you can do and let me show you some of that so on the left hand side of the steering wheel. We've got the smartphone style touch responsive controllers you press to click swipe up down left and right and this way we, can control the left Gage and the information that you would find within that swipe over and we can control the.
