2011 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG

Matt Tierney

I know that Mercedes and AMG have collaborated on high-performance SUVs since the first-generation M-class and that their efforts also have extended to the old-fashioned Gelandewagen, but I now find these types of vehicles to be pretty silly. I mean, really: the ML550 and its 382-hp, 391-lb-ft, 5.5-liter V-8 isn't enough? I do not share Mercedes-Benz's opinion that there should be an AMG version of every single vehicle in the Mercedes lineup, so how about if we drop the AMG M-class, for starters? The fewer AMG models there are, the more special are the ones that still exist, and I would just as soon that they all be sedans, coupes, and roadsters.
