Saturday, June 3rd 2017. | Mercedes-Benz

The 2018 Mercedes AMG GLC63 is evolution, the fire-breathing performance SUV with a 4-liter Biturbo v8. The GLC class evolved from a compact SUV to a coupe shaped SUV before last year’s edition of a turbo v6 in the Mercedes AMG GLC43 was an acid test for this whole hog and let’s talk details the 2018 Mercedes AMG GLC63 comes equipped with a 4-litre twin turbo v8.

 

2018 Mercedes AMG GLC63 Specs

That makes 469 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque all-wheel drive in a solid 9-speed automatic help the 2018 Mercedes AMG GLC63 make the run up to 60 miles an hour in less than 4 seconds. The Mercedes AMG GLC63 s ups the ante to 503 horsepower and 516 pound-feet along with some mechanical upgrades to put the power to the pavement and run up to 60 miles an hour in 3.7 seconds.

There’s a caveat you only get the s in the coupe version so who’s ready for limited rear visibility and who are we kidding just keep your eyes facing forward. All the 2018 Mercedes AMG GLC63 models get a limited slip differential across the rear axle to handle power side to side but the S version gets an electronically controlled version for quicker transfer.

The rear axle from the Mercedes AMG E63 sedan has been planted in the back to handle the wider track and bass grippy summer tires air suspension upgrades are standard and necessary to keep the interior vomit free the settings toggle from comfort all the way up to race in the SUV.

Like other performance SUVs from Mercedes the 2018 Mercedes AMG GLC63 is way out there but it’s an evolutionary step between buyers preferences for crossovers and performance versions.
