2022 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 SUV Trims & Specs

The GLC 63 is the halo model within the broader GLC range and there are two trim levels available, the 63 and 63 S. Both are powered by a bi-turbo V8 engine, delivering 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque in the 63 and 503 hp and 516 lb-ft in the 63 S. The power is transferred to an all-wheel-drive system via a nine-speed AMG Speedshift transmission.

As the top-spec GLC, the 63 is equipped with numerous standard features. It has Mercedes' latest MBUX interface, a 10.25-inch touchscreen display in the center console, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. This system is compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD Radio, SiriusXM, and Bluetooth. It comes as standard with a 13-speaker Burmester sound system. Standard luxury features include keyless entry and push-button start, dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera, adaptive high-beam assist, a multi-function steering wheel with haptic feedback, a power liftgate, and a 64-color ambient lighting system. The GLC 63 S gets a few performance-enhancing features such as adaptive engine mounts and the AMG Drive Unit to complement the extra power.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 SUV?

There are two GLC 63 SUV models for sale - the GLC 63 and 63 S. Last year, the 63 had an MSRP of $73,900, excluding the destination charge of $1,050. Mercedes has not yet confirmed 2022 pricing, but it's expected to rise to around $75,000 for the GLC 63. Taking the GLC 63 Coupe and 63 S Coupe as a guideline, the latter is around $7,600 - or ten percent - more expensive than the non-S model. This should hold true for the GLC 63 S, in which case we expect it to cost around $82,500. The normal GLC 63 is more expensive than the X3 M, which has an MSRP of $69,900, but it's not all bad news, because the normal 63 is faster than the $76,900 X3 Competition, which the 2022 GLC 63 is expected to undercut on price. The GLC 63 is also less expensive than the 2022 Porsche Macan GTS at $79,900 and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio at $86,850. It beats the former and matches the latter on acceleration figures, making it a comparative performance bargain. The GLC 63 S leaves all for dead in a straight line, yet will still be cheaper than the Alfa.

🚗What 2022 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 SUV Model Should I Buy?

While it's always tempting to opt for the new top dog, we don't think the extra $7,500-odd for the GLC 63 S can be justified when one takes into account that nothing in the class can outrun even the standard GLC 63. It's too much money for a 0.2-second reduction in the benchmark sprint and the extra S goodies won't be missed by anybody but the most hardcore AMG gearhead and are of doubtful value in an SUV. If you're that gearhead, go ahead and buy it. If it's not, read on. We'd save the money and kit out our standard 63 a little better. We'd opt for the designo Diamond White Metallic paint ($1,515) and the 21-inch black multi-spoke wheels ($1,500) because the contrast is lovely. On the inside, we'd keep it relatively simple. We'd have the seats in Red Pepper/Black Exclusive Nappa Leather ($2,590). Finally, we'd add the Driver Assistance Package, adding another $1,700 to the AMG GLC 63's base price. This results in a total of around $82,500 excluding the destination charge - essentially the same as an S without any of these desirable extras.
