Mercedes-AMG’s “Edition 55” models continue as the brand celebrates the historic anniversary year.
Mercedes-AMG has spent this year releasing “Edition 55” models to celebrate 55 years of AMG. Since 1967, the German house has been dedicated to bringing out the performance potential of Mercedes-Benz cars, and since being a part of the Mercedes-Benz brand, that dedication has been more than fulfilled with legendary cars and feats coming from the group. The latest model to get the “Edition 55” treatment is the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV, along with the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, with a new look made to celebrate AMG’s storied history.
Featuring 22-inch forged AMG cross-spoke wheels along with an AMG crest graphic on the sides of the car, combined with the AMG Night Package, the “Edition 55” has a sleek and special look. A black and red interior, matching the rest of the “Edition 55” models, is accented by “Edition 55” letterings, signatures, and badges throughout, from the steering wheel to the seats, to the palm rest on the center console. Of course, the true signature of AMG is performance, and with the GLE 53 Coupe and SUV, the 0-60 dash happens in just 5.2 seconds with 429 horsepower and 384 lb/ft of torque. With the GLE 63 Coupe and SUV, 0-60 is even faster at just 3.7 seconds, with 603 horsepower and 627 lb/ft of torque on tap. It’s no wonder Mercedes-Benz gave the GLE the honor of being a performance SUV that celebrates 55 years of performance prowess.
