Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG (2014)

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

2. smaller turn radius

12.4m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.

3.Has fully independent suspension
Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG (2014)

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

4.Has air suspension
Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG (2014)

Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.

5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG (2014)

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.

4. longer wheelbase

3.08m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).

5. more headroom (front)

1.05m

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.

6. more headroom (rear)

1.02m

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.

Speed

1. lower coefficient of drag

0.38Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Best

0.24Cd

2. faster acceleration (0-100)

4.9s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

4.Has a turbocharged engine
Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG (2014)

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

5. more horsepower

550hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
