High performance SUVs are here to stay, and thanks to modern technology, they are becoming more and more powerful with every single year. Perhaps knowing this, Mercedes Benz created a car that is going to be competitive in this ever changing segment, and brings something extra to the table too, with their new release: the 2012 Mercedes Benz ML63 AMG.
To make the ultimate ML, Mercedes Benz has gone to their resident tuner AMG to come up with a super SUV. There are a lot of things that they have done to make this truck go over the top. At first glance, you can see that this car absolutely means business, thanks to its enhanced body styling and the 20 x 9 inch set of AMG wheels, with a 21 x 10 inch set optional. Then AMG proceeds to improve the quality of the interior, with sports seats and other AMG inspired bits and pieces giving the interior some sporty feel.
And then, there’s the dynamic stuff. An updated version of the 6.3 liter twin turbo V8 engine with direct injection produces 525 horsepower, providing a seemingly endless surge of energy to all 4 wheels. And with an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G tronic transmission, it allows both quick response and efficient engine use. The AMG-tuned suspension, handling dynamics are superb. And to top it off, the 2012 Mercedes Benz ML63 AMG is up to 28 percent more fuel efficient than the model that it replaced.
