NADAguides Test Drive Review

The AMG identity infused onto a Mercedes-Benz product always invokes extra attention. Originally a separate performance tuning shop, AMG’s history with Mercedes-Benz spans more than four decades. Since 1990, Mercedes-Benz has controlled AMG securing a consistent collaborative spirit that has created some exotic sedans, coupes and convertibles. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar was the epitome of this German vehicle partnership. With the AMG badge applied throughout the Mercedes-Benz line-up, even the ML-Class crossover vehicle is deemed worthy of the high performance treatment. Introduced as a sizeable helping of engine power and handling, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG supplies the premium marketplace with an incredibly versatile crossover vehicle.

Taking a quick look at the 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG, some observers would be easily lured by the “wolf in sheep’s clothing” appearance. Derived from the redesigned Mercedes-Benz M-Class crossover, the 2013 ML63 AMG maintains a sophisticated look promoting high quality luxury. Discreet details begin to emerge by looking at the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG with a more careful eye. Unique front air dam, rear apron and side skirts provide an ever so careful amount of AMG-inspired exterior definition. A headlamp system incorporating AMG-specific LED daytime running lights shine as a display of contemporary technology and style. Providing another form of glimmer, 20-inch AMG alloy wheels utilize a high sheen finish. Chrome accents on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG are also used to highlight the “V8 BITURBO” badging and the twin exhaust pipes.

Luxury inside the German sport crossover vehicle is spotlighted by a packed infotainment system. Operating on Mercedes-Benz’s Command system including a seven-inch color display screen, a central controller and steering-wheel mounted buttons provide access to entertainment, navigation and cockpit controls. In addition to satellite and conventional radio choices, the ML63 AMG’s cabin pipes Harman/Kardon Logic7 audio that is stored on a 10-gigabtye Music Register, streamed music from devices or disc-changer. Dual-zone climate controls, heated steering wheel, a 115-volt power outlet and power liftgate are a few other standard conveniences found on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG.

The relatively new biturbo V8 engine is touted as a modern engine by the German automaker. Incorporating a twin turbocharger layout and direct injection, the new ML63 AMG can produce more horsepower than predeceasing Mercedes-Benz crossovers but achieves more respectable fuel mileage. With 0 to 60 mile per hour acceleration opportunities presented in just 4.7 seconds, the low-end punch coming from the 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG’s powerplant is accompanied by massive torque.
