Here’s your first look at the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG. Making its worldwide debut at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG unites efficiency and performance, exclusivity and an outstanding driving experience. The estimated combined fuel economy for the high-performance SUV is 16 mpg, marking a 33-percent improvement over its predecessor. The basis for the excellent fuel economy and performance is the AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine with an output of 518 hp and torque of 516 lb-ft, representing an increase of 15 hp and 44 lb-ft over the previous model.
Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, added: “Like its predecessors, the 2012 ML63 AMG sets new standards in terms of performance, exclusivity and an outstanding driving experience – plus the efficiency factor, which is acquiring ever greater emphasis at Mercedes-AMG. As the inventor of the high-performance SUV, we remain true to the philosophy which we introduced in 1999 with the 2000MY ML55 AMG and continued with the 2007MY ML63 AMG.”
