Mercedes-Benz will continue to produce the ML 63 AMG through the 2011 model year

Article by Christian A., on January 6, 2011

As you may know already, some media reports stated that the Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG production will be stopped in order to make way for the next-generation. But it appears that we have great news for those who were angry about this: Mercedes-Benz will continue to produce all variants of the SUV through the 2011 model year.

The current generation of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class was introduced six years ago, but the German manufacturer will unveil this year the new generation, and there are very big chances to see the new SUV in September, at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The current generation ML 63 AMG received a small facelift last summer and under the hood we find an impressive 6.3-liter V8 engine capable to deliver 510 hp (375 kW) and 630 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission with three drive modes.

With the impressive amount of power, the car can sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.0 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h or 155 mph. 

The ML 63 AMG comes with 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels, which are painted titanium grey with a high-sheen finish and fitted with 295/40 R 20 tyres on the front and rear.

Living up to its name as the performance SUV boasting of the largest engine displacement and highest output, the Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG comes with a dynamic exterior and sophisticated interior. On the front, the new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG features a stunning new AMG front apron with high-gloss chromed underguard.

Its central black grille helps make the lower cooling air inlet look larger while its new high-gloss black AMG-specific radiator grille -- with three chrome-highlighted radiator louvres – is flanked by freshly designed headlamps flank. Meanwhile, round fog lamps with chrome surrounds as well as flared wheel arches in body color make the new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG appear much wider and more imposing.

This schema is reiterated on the rear, as highlighted by high-gloss, chromed underguard on new AMG rear apron with integrated reflectors. Moreover, the rear features AMG sports exhaust system with two chromed twin tailpipes.

Instead of dark-tinted tail lights, the rear is highlighted by LED tail lights. These lights could have a clear-glass look once optional bi-xenon headlamps are availed. Moreover, the new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG comes with newly styled exterior mirrors and standard-fit aluminum-look roof rails.

Accentuating the sides are new 20-inch five-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels in titanium grey and wrapped in 295/40 R 20 tires for both and front and rear. Customers may even avail of high-sheen 21-inch twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels in titanium-grey wrapped in 295/35 R 21 tires.

Inside, the ML 63 AMG features a new AMG ergonomic steering wheel which has its grip area wrapped in perforated leather. In addition, its bottom two spokes come finished with a silver-colored insert. Additionally, the vehicle comes with AMG aluminum shift paddles for manual gear shifting and an optional nappa leather-trimmed dashboard.

Interestingly, this ML 63 AMG comes with the latest telematics generation -- Audio 20. This standard system is easy to use and features a logical menu structure with total entertainment. Likewise, the Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG has a hands-free system with Bluetooth technology as standard, and a new Media Interface in the glove compartment as an option.

This new Media Interface allows mobile audio devices to be fully integrated and controlled through the audio system's user interface. Also featured as an option on the new ML 63 AMG is the improved LINGUATRONIC voice-operated control system, which works with the new telematics generation.
