No one needs a 503-horsepower SUV capable of 155 miles per hour. In the real world, the 2011 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG makes no sense whatsoever. But you want one all the same. We understand.

The ML63 AMG is striking, if not entirely tasteful, and price is a concern. Still, the power and sound of the twin-turbo V-8 will have you waving your cowboy hat while you whoop and holler your way through traffic.

The ML63 AMG is more than just an SUV. It’s a high-powered rocket with a Nappa leather interior and more horses under the hood than most stampedes. The fact it’s an SUV only makes it that much better.

The new ML 63 AMG is the most powerful SUV for sale today. Let’s all remember it is paving the way to cleaner, more efficient versions of lower-spec Mercedes. That might be all the rationalization needed to buy one of these.

Mercedes-Benz’s new 2012 ML63 AMG represents the sort of self-contradictory engineering challenge Germans love. It’s 2.5 tons of SUV thrown around by a 518-horsepower, twin-turbocharged, direct-injected 5.5-liter V8 — a granite boulder with a rocket engine.

The Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG is one of a handful of highly competent, high-performance, luxury SUVs that can handle any weather or social situation. Now it’s even faster, fuel efficient and pleasing to the eye.

Opt for the ML63 AMG and you will benefit from electromechanical, speed-sensitive power steering and giant brakes. What we have in the ML63 is an SUV that defies the laws of physics and in so doing becomes the new class of its class.

In the ML63 AMG, the fun starts as soon as the road opens up. As is expected from a nearly $100,000 Mercedes-Benz, it arrives in showrooms with a long list of standard features.

We’d have a hard time convincing you why not to buy the ML63 AMG, as long as you’re in the market for an SUV with a bit of a price tag. It transitions so brilliantly from sporty road gymnastics to normal, everyday driving that we’re convinced Mercedes has somehow blended chameleon genes with those of a car.

Once you drive the ML63, you’ll never turn back. It hits all the right buttons for someone who needs a do-it-all utility vehicle and has a little coin to splurge on some luxury. It also has more torque than a Lamborghini Aventador.

Mercedes has come a long way with its third-generation ML AMG. It packs an engine worthy of the AMG name, along with the fine interior quality that we expect of Mercedes-Benz. The improvement to the ML’s ride and handling alone is enough to recommend it over the old model.
