2016 performmaster Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Front ViewOne of the most controversial models in Mercedes-Benz line-up is probably the GLE. And this is because it shares many similarities with the latest BMW's X6 in terms of design. However, the SUV definitely made a great furor among enthusiast and Mercedes fans, because its external beauty and powerful presence is undisputable.

What about the performance of the model? Speaking of the AMG GLE 63, it has a stock power of 557 hp (410 kW) and 700 Newton meters (517 lb-ft) of torque. The more powerful variant having the "S" letter behind the 63, puts out even more: 585 horsepower (430 kW) and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque.
