Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The GLS63 is all new for 2021, after a brief pause when the previous generation ended production after the 2019 model year.We aren't exactly sure how many options and packages Mercedes-AMG will offer on the 2021 GLS63 when it goes on sale in mid-2020. We expect a long list of performance and styling upgrades, which will likely push the GLS63's price far north of its entry fee.

The base SE model now comes with more standard equipment, including LED headlamps, a power-operated inner tailgate, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a new steering wheel with capacitive-touch button controls; a four-zone automatic climate-control system is now optional on the SE. The InControl Touch Pro infotainment system sees a few software updates and offers optional Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upscale HSE and HSE Luxury models now come with a real-time wading-depth information system and a heated windshield is now available as a standalone option on all models.

Pros
Handsome square-jawed appearance,
upscale cabin,
superior off-road capability.

Cons
Thirsty gasoline engine,
clumsy on-road dynamics,
lackluster braking performance.
