The main of the mechanical upgrades to the car is the new aluminum V8 now displacing 6.2L versus the motor of the previous ML55 Peak power of 510hp at 6,800rpm and maximum torque of stands at 5,200rpm. The high rpm for peak output suggest a nature but this couldn’t be from the truth: from as low as the engine’s already producing of torque.

The rolling stock for our test car of 19in light-alloy wheels with 295mm tires however there’s also a set of wheels available as an option. within these wheels are of internally ventilated and indented discs – 15.4in up front and out back.

The numbers look on paper but when you consider the being lugged around is a tank rather than a car, even power as good as those of the ML63 can a little feeble. Fortunately, the SUV doesn’t disappoint. The engine remains in readiness for any changes to the releasing mountains of torque very early in the rev-range. a willingness to rev that belies the 6.2L displacement but once it its power peak the tacho’s struggles to creep further. It matter because the ML63, most powerful Mercs, is all the effortless surge you get much in the rev-range.

Our tests saw it cover the standing in an impressive 24.22 seconds and a trap speed of 219.2km/h. was sufficient to beat the time of the Cayenne Turbo, which 25.22 seconds to cover the distance and only reached and it also beats V8-powered saloons like the Maserati (24.33 seconds and 219.6km/h) and the XJR (24.28seconds and 211.9 km/h).

Set it to a setting and body-roll is almost and the vehicle’s handling remains even when driven at So comfortable is the ride and handling curves that we constantly to keep an eye on the speedometer to keep of the real speeds we were at.

Of course it’s still to unsettle the vehicle but push too far and control immediately steps in and it back into line. The also comes with of the best brakes in the business, the SUV from 130km/h in just 64m – a reading than the 65.6m by the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.


The ML63 drives a level of precision that’s for a vehicle weighing in at more two tons and standing almost two tall. From the get go, the ML63 not only because of its hand-built but because of the pleasure it delivers pushed to the limit. With a help from the Affalterbach the ML is now on par with sporty SUV rivals Porsche and BMW in terms of on-road but more importantly it marks a to the levels of performance and quality one expect from a top end vehicle the Three Pointed Star. For who doubt an SUV could ever be labeled a performance car, we you take a ride in the ML63 and out just how far things have ML63 AMG Review
