We already know that Mercedes-Benz is currently working on a rival for the BMW X6 based on the M-Class. Still, today we found out that the upcoming vehicle which is dubbed ML Coupe, will also offer a high performance version, which will probable by named ML63 AMG Coupe. The new AMG-badged ML Coupe will take on cars such as the BMW X6 M.

The standard ML Coupe will be based on Concept Coupe SUV that was unveiled back in April at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. As expected, the AMG version of the Mercedes-Benz ML Coupe will receive a new styling consisting of a new front bumper with larger air intakes, the AMG badges as well as a new rear bumper that perfectly integrates the AMG performance exhaust system.

In addition, the sporty SUV will offer new AMG alloy wheels wrapped in high-performance tires and a stiffer suspension. The interior will also be overhauled as it will offer a sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals and new sport seats wearing the AMG badge.

Under the hood, we will find a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged B8 engine that will deliver 525 hp and 700 Nm of torque (516 lb-ft). Mercedes-Benz is also expected to offer an AMG Performance Package that will boost the engine to almost 560 hp.

BMW will roll out its new X6 M by the end of the year after its official debut from the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, in November, while the new Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG Coupe will arrive in 2015. The new model will use the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that will deliver 560 hp and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. So, things are pretty clear: a new war is starting, this time among high-performance SUVs.
