Mercedes has not yet introduced the new AMG G63, but we all know that the analog model in the crossover body will be very similar to it. Eventually, the standard GLC was introduced, and we saw quite a few images of the “charged” version of the model from AMG, which will compete with the BMW X3 M. In an attempt to present their vision of the GLC 63, our colleagues presented two renderings of the novelty, which are based on previously published photos with crossover prototypes.
“A high-performance crossover with a Panamericana grille and four exhaust pipes will look significantly more aggressive than a standard GLC.”
It should get wider wheel arches with larger wheels, and more powerful brakes with superior braking ability to cope with a powerful plug-in hybrid powerplant.
The “spy” pictures showed that the GLC 63 will also have rear-wheel steering, which should increase the stability of control during fast cornering.
Although the prototypes noticed received fake front air intakes, which were transferred to this rendering, we have reason to believe that they will not be in the production model. Last month, Mercedes-AMG presented the C63 2023 model year with a thin camouflage coating at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and it had functional air intakes on both corners of the bumper.
Like the C63 sedan and station wagon, the GLC 63 will lose the V8 engine, instead, it will get a six-cylinder inline engine. The new generation of powerful cars with the index “63” will use a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine from compact models “45”, but installed longitudinally. With an additional electric motor mounted at the rear, the PHEV powerplant will be rated at approximately 670 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque.
