The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS63 AMG starts at a base price of $132,100 before a $995 destination charge. With a number of options and aesthetic upgrades available, it wouldn't be a surprise to pay over $150,000 for a fully loaded model. Our test model, for example, rang in with an as-tested price of $153,035.
Until the configurator goes live, we don't know exactly what options will be available with the new GLS63 and what these options will cost. However, we do know that heated third-row seating will be available, as will heated and ventilated massaging second-row seats, an upgraded Burmester 3D surround-sound system, augmented reality navigation, an air fragrance system, and wheels as large as 23 inches in diameter. There will also be a seven-inch MBUX rear-seat infotainment system with a dedicated Samsung tablet screen as was equipped to our tester.
With only one trim level of the 2021 GLS63, buyers will simply have to select which options they'd like on their already well-equipped SUV. 23-inch wheels were the priciest option on our test car for $4,950 but the aggression they bring to the car is worth the price. We could easily do without the carbon fiber engine cover and Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel for $1,500 and $600 respectively but we would keep packages like the Burmester 3D Surround Sound System ($4,550), Warmth and Comfort Package ($1,100), and Executive Rear Seat Package ($3,700). For most buyers, the non-AMG GLS450 and GLS580 will be plenty fast and match the level of opulence found in the GLS63 for far less money.
