This is our best look yet at the new 600 horsepower SUV Coupe.
Last year, the all-new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S debuted at the LA Auto Show, so it's only a matter of time before the new-generation Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe receives the hardcore AMG 63 treatment. Mercedes isn't ready to reveal the new performance coupe SUV yet, but we've been given an early look at the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe thanks to eagle-eyed CarBuzz reader Chad Rouse, who spotted a camouflaged prototype parked up and sent us some revealing spy photos.
As you can see, Mercedes hasn't tried too hard to disguise the AMG GLE 63 Coupe prototype, as only minimal camouflage has been applied to the front and rear bumpers. Then again, we already know what the new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe looks like.
Compared to the regular GLE Coupe, the AMG version looks more aggressive thanks to an AMG-specific grille, a front bumper with larger intakes, and more muscular fenders. Elsewhere, the sloping roofline gives the GLE Coupe a more stylish appearance than the regular model, albeit at the expense of practicality.
A quad exhaust system also confirms we're looking at the full fat AMG GLE Coupe. We can also see the interior almost completely uncovered, revealing the three-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel , leather upholstery, and dual 12.3-inch screens with Mercedes' MBUX infotainment system.
Like the regular AMG GLE 63, the Coupe version will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 563 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque and 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque in the range-topping S guise. All that power will be sent to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Performance should be on a par with the regular AMG GLE 63, meaning 0-62 mph will take around four seconds in the standard version and 3.8 seconds in the S model before topping out at 155 mph. An optional AMG Driver's Package will increase the top speed to 174 mph. We should get to see the performance SUV in all its glory soon, as the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe is expected to debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. Don't be surprised if the S model is the only version available in the US just like the regular AMG GLE 63.
