Mercedes To Drop The CLS 63 To Make Room For The AMG GT 4 11

Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers recently confirmed the CLS 53 will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show and the executive has revealed new details about the upcoming model.

Speaking to Automotive News, Moers said the car will go on sale in the United States by the end of next year and it will have a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that has an output in the “400s.” That’s a little vague but the publication believes it will be rated at around 430 hp (320 kW).

Unfortunately, that’s where the good news ends as Moers confirmed there will no longer be a CLS 63. Instead, the model has been ditched to make room for the AMG GT 4 which will go on sale in America in 2019.

While it’s sad to see the CLS 63 getting put out to pasture, Moers hinted the company could offer AMG variants of the E-Class Coupe and Convertible. They would be 53 variants and could arrive as early as 2019.

The report goes on to suggest the redesigned GLE will likely receive the 53 treatment sometime after the standard model is launched in early 2019.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Prototype Not Done Stretching Its Wings 1

Aimed at the likes of BMW’s X5 M or Porsche’s Cayenne Turbo and Turbo S, the all-new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 definitely has some big shoes to fill.

Part of its training regimen is of course the Nurburgring, which is THE place to calibrate your car while in prototype phase, even if we’re talking about a mid-size SUV like the GLE.

So what does this latest batch of images tell us? Even though the car is just as well camouflaged as before, we can still observe certain styling details like the GLE 63’s Panamericana grille or its wider than usual fenders.

Also, while these images don’t provide us with a look inside, we’ve already seen the next-gen GLE’s partially covered cabin, and the AMG model should feature the same dual-screen setup, console handles and quad-vents in the middle of the dashboard. Expect the boys from Affalterbach to add their own touch though, meaning a sportier steering wheel and inserts, perhaps even some Alcantara and carbon fiber here and there.

Like the current model, the all-new GLE 63 will also be available with two different power outputs, specifically 571 PS (563 HP) for the “entry-level” version, and 612 PS (603 HP) for the GLE 63 S – both via a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. And yes, you’re looking at a larger power gap than before.

Since the all-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE will be unveiled sometime next year, the AMG models should follow soon after.

Hard as it may be to believe today, there was a time that Mercedes didn't make crossovers. It had the G-Wagen, sure, but that was always considered more of a workhorse (like the Unimog) than a luxury sport-ute, and wasn't offered in North America for another five years.
