The GLS 63 is a full-blown AMG performance version of the company’s GLS SUV. The car is priced from ₹1.58 crore onwards and is powering by a 5.5-litre, V8 bi-turbo AMG-developed engine that makes 585hp and 760Nm of torque. The car is claimed to be able to hit 100kph in 4.6 seconds. The engine is mated to an AMG Speedshift-plus 7G-tronic transmission that sends power to all four wheels via a 4matic all-wheel-drive system. The GLS 63 features an AMG 'ride control' sports suspension with 'Active Curve System' roll stabilisation, there’s a Harman Kardon Logic 7 surround sound system, heated seats with massage function for the front two occupants, second row electrically foldable seats and AMG bodystyling, chrome fins, and red-painted brake calipers.

The G 63 Edition 463 is based on the company's G-class SUV. The car is priced at ₹2.17 crore and is powered by the same 5.5-litre, V8 bi-turbo engine that makes a slightly lower output of 572hp, but identical torque of 760Nm. The SUV’s engine is mated to an AMG Speedshift-plus 7G-tronic automatic gearbox and the company claims the SUV can get to 100 kph in 5.4 sec. The standard G63 comes fitted with off-roading tech like all-wheel-drive, three fully locking differentials, an off-road reduction gear and an electronic traction system (4ETS), the AMG version will also get these features. Other additions include a 21-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels, leather interiors, AMG carbon-fibre trim, AMG sport strips on flanks and a stainless-steel under-ride guard.
