All You Need to Know About the GLC 63 AMG® Coming Soon to MBSL!
The 2018 GLC 63 made its debut at the New York Auto Show last month. This is the first time that a midsize Mercedes-Benz SUV will be available with an extremely powerful 8 cylinder biturbo engine. The vehicle will produce 469 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque.
The GLC 63 is paired up with the 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. This intelligent system unites the advantages of different drive concepts: the fully variable torque distribution to the front and rear axles ensures optimal traction right up to the physical limit. The driver is also able to rely on high driving stability and handling safety under all conditions – dry, wet, or snow.
The vehicle will also feature the AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 9-Speed. The driver benefits from extremely short shift/response times. Fast multiple downshifts and the double-declutching function make for a highly emotive gearshift experience. A start-off wet clutch replaces the torque converter. This saves weight and optimizes the response to the driver’s accelerator pedal input, particularly on acceleration and during load changes.
As you have come to expect, the interior of the GLC 63 is completely focused on the driver and driving dynamics. The driver and passenger are enclosed in the instrument panel is trimmed in black ARTICO man-made leather with contrasting top stitching. The high-grade look is underlined by aluminum trim sport seats made of ARTICO – man made leather, combined with DINAMICA microfibre.
Upon release there will be an exclusive “Edition 1” special model for a limited time. The exclusive combination of equipment details turns the special model into the flagship of the range; the Night package in high-gloss black enhances the racing-inspired looks. The sports stripes on the sides of the vehicle are in yellow or matte graphite grey, depending on the paint color and model variant. The matte black 21-inch cross-spoke forged wheels are provided with highlights in the form of yellow or high-sheen rim flanges. The Aerodynamics package also draws its inspiration from the world of motor sport. The racing feel is carried over into the interior. The sports seats are upholstered in black Nappa leather and reprise the color yellow in the contrasting top stitching of the specific diamond pattern.
