So while a whole new generation of Mercedes ML is in the works, the company releases one more update for the most powerful variant of its full-size SUV, the ML63 AMG. This time the changes are fairly subtle, but add up for a nice and elegant style. The main changes on the outside includes darkened head and taillights, which also feature bi-xenon headlamps with active light function.

The tail lamps too are upgraded with a clear-lens design and LED technology. The big Merc also gets a new bonnet with power domes, and chromed front and rear underguard.

Inside the cabin you get nappa leather upholstery for the electrically adjustable AMG sports seats, with Alcantara inserts in the shoulder areas and multicontour function and heating, plus an AMG sports steering wheel with AMG aluminium shift paddles and perforated leather on the specially-shaped grip area. You may also order nappa leather-trimmed dashboard for extra charge.

The performance of the car remains unchanged, you still get that rumbling 6.3 liter 510 hp V8 with AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission. More on that after the pictures.

Pricing for the new-look Mercedes ML63 AMG starts from 105,077 euros.

Powerful and torque-laden AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine
Still boasting a power output of 375 kW (510 hp) at 6800/rpm as well as 630 Nm of torque, the ML 63 AMG is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited). At the renowned International Engine of the Year Awards in 2009, the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine took the top places in both the “Best Performance Engine” and “Above 4 litres” categories.
As before, power transfer is taken care of via the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission with three drive modes. The permanent all-wheel drive is decidedly sporty: the power is split asymmetrically 40:60 between the front and rear wheels to provide optimum agility. The AMG sports suspension, based on the AIRMATIC package with air suspension, adaptive damping system ADS and automatic level control all-round, provides dynamic performance combined with the hallmark Mercedes long-distance comfort. The generously dimensioned AMG high-performance braking system, which features internally ventilated and perforated brake discs all-round, ensures short braking distances and optimum resistance to fading.
The ML 63 AMG comes with 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels, which are painted titanium grey with a high-sheen finish and fitted with 295/40 R 20 tyres on the front and rear. As an optional extra, titanium-grey-painted, high-sheen twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels fitted with 295/35 R 21 tyres are also available.
