2019 AMG GLS 63 Exterior

The second-generation GLS has been on sale since 2012, and, despite a refresh or two, the last major one came into effect in 2017, the GLS retains its retro-cool boxy exterior styling. Whereas other manufacturers offer flowing lines and shapely body stales, Mercedes has had no issue in retaining their classic, and decidedly rugged square body styling for the AMG GLS 63. The Big Merc features a large grille with an even bigger Mercedes-Benz logo, LED lights and large front bumper intakes. New owners can choose between a set of 21-inch AMG cross-spoke, or 22-inch AMG multi-spoke wheels, both available in alloy or matte black. The GLS 63 comes standard with a panorama roof with third-row vent windows. The rear of the GLS is finished off with LED taillights and menacing dual exit exhaust pipes that let the traffic behind know that they shouldn't bother overtaking any time soon.

The GLS 63 is a proper seven-seater, and the dimensions follow suit. In order to accommodate the aggressive styling an AMG requires, Mercedes had to increase the length and wheelbase of the GLS model range, and the AMG 63 is even longer, measuring 203.2 inches; 1.2 inches longer than the GLS 450 and 550. The AMG GLS 63 is 72.8 inches tall, 76.1 inches wide, and rides on a lengthy 121.1-inch wheelbase, the latte matching the standard GLS derivatives. For those brave enough to even consider taking this $126,000 car off the beaten path, the AMG GLS has 8.5 inches of ground clearance, and a curb weight of 5,754 pounds, 137 more than the BMW X7 xDrive50i.

Exterior Colors

For 2019, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLS 63 is available in nine different colors, none of which are mind-blowingly exciting. Instead, Mercedes gives you a choice of rather muted colors that match the seriousness of the intimidating GLS. The classic Iridium Silver and Selenite Gray are always popular choices for Mercedes' big SUVs, as is black, or the more exotic Obsidian black metallic. Other color options include Polar White, Brilliant Blue Metallic, Lunar Blue Metallic, Designo grand edition Cardinal Red and Diamond white. We suspect that most AMG GLS 63 cars will be sold in black, because, well, VIP.

Under the Arizona sun, our GLS' Polar White paint job did wonders to reflect the heat and keep the AMG looking cool, collected, but angry. Meanwhile, the AMG Night package alluded to the Mercedes' performance abilities with blacked-out mirror caps, beltline trim insert, twin tailpipes, roof racks, roof, and front fascia intake trim. Without the muted silver tones of a more modern AMG's Panamericana grille, the GLS' chrome teeth glimmered so that more subdued elements didn't have to. Subtle chrome touches were also left on the side steps, on the lip of each wheel, and on the shelf that sits over the rear bumper.
