Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe: What’s under the hood?
Since this is a high-performance AMG model, let’s start with the content under the hood. The AMG GLE 63 S Coupe is powered by AMG’s full-fat 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged gasoline V8 engine and is equipped with a 48V starter-alternator. In this top-spec 63 S model, the engine can produce 612 horsepower and 850 Nm of peak torque. The motor also has active cylinder deactivation technology, which can shut down the four cylinders when the load is light or in “comfort” mode.
It is also the first AMG V8 model equipped with a 48V EQ Boost hybrid system. This mild hybrid technology can provide an additional 22 horsepower and 250 Nm when needed. The powertrain is used in conjunction with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Power is sent to all four wheels via Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel drive system with variable torque distribution. Mercedes-AMG claims that the 0-100kph time of the GLE 63 S Coupe is 3.8 seconds and the top speed is 280kph. It has seven driving modes, including a race mode unique to the 63 S variant.
The GLE 63 S Coupe comes standard with air suspension and even an active roll stabilization system based on 48V technology. Mercedes claims that the system not only improves handling by reducing body roll during cornering, but also improves ride comfort by balancing road bumps on one side. In fact, body movement can be actively and optimally adapted to the driving mode.
