The old saying ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ has never applied more accurately than it does to the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S. At first glance this beauty appears to be just another large luxury SUV, which means it will haul lots of kids and cargo in style, but typically doesn’t have the handling or speed of anything you would call a ‘performance’ vehicle… But in this case, you would be quite wrong. The GLE 63 S deserves every letter of its AMG moniker, delivering a brutish 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque from its grunty 4 liter ‘biturbo’-charged V8. There’s even a little F1 tech with the EQ Boost integrated with the starter motor, which adds 21 hp and 184 pound-feet of torque in electric power when you mash the pedal and then recovers its juice back when you brake. Does all this sound fast to you? How about hitting 0 – 60 mph in a blistering 3.7 seconds. The harder I drove the 63 S, the more it hunkered down and rocketed ahead with bombastic speed, howling a sweet symphony through its performance exhaust.
