As its nameplate would suggest, under the bonnet sits AMG's renowned naturally aspirated 6.3-litre V8 engine which pumps out an incredible 375kW and 630Nm.
Its performance is uncharacteristic of a big luxury SUV, sprinting from zero to 100km/h in 5.0 seconds flat and on to an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h.
Power is transferred to the permanent all-wheel drive system - which boasts a 40:60 torque split - through an AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission with three drive modes.
The AMG sports suspension package integrates AIRMATIC air suspension, adaptive damping system ADS and automatic level control all-round which provides dynamic performance combined with long-distance comfort.
An enormous AMG high-performance brake package sits behind 20-inch lightweight five-spoke AMG alloy wheels painted titanium grey, wrapped with 295/40 R 20 tyres.
The interior of the Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG features electrically adjustable AMG sports seats finished in nappa leather upholstery, with Alcantara inserts and multicontour function and heating, complemented by an AMG sports steering wheel with AMG aluminium shift paddles.
