Front-engine, all-wheel drive 4.0-liter Twin-Turbo V8 603 @ 5,750 RPM 627 lb.ft. @ 2,500 RPM $145,850 $153,000 14 city 18 highway 16 combined TYPE: ENGINE HORSEPOWER: TORQUE: BASE PRICE: AS TESTED: FUEL CONSUMPTION: Mercedes-Benz 2024 AMG GLS 63 SUV Along with carbon fiber trim finishes, two grab handles are prominently available on either side of the center console. I understand the usefulness of passenger handles during spirited motoring, but perhaps the driver should keep both hands gripping the AMG Performance steering wheel with its red drive mode buttons begging for attention. Punch up the Sport+ setting and the AMG Active Ride Control does its best to allow tossing this big rig around while the exhaust pipes snarl and bark. It's amusement for the whole family. Along with the serious journalistic endeavors during my professional evaluation of performance attributes in the AMG GLS 63, I simply surrendered to the luxury. If I decide to drive across our country again, this is a candidate, although the combined 16 MPG (14 city/18 highway) might dampen that enthusiasm. But if you like living large, this fits the bill. @ranchandcoast RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE NOVEMBER 2023 79
