Didn't see this here yet so here it is:
First Drive Review:
Looks like this is a ~$40k upgrade? to the same platform as the wk2 SRT/8 Jeep, we'll see once pricing is announced.
Like the rear exhaust, wondering if the wheels will fit... wondering what the weight difference is attributed to (5005 vs 5300ish), engine? old MB trans?
Compared to the BMW X5 M and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, the 5,005-pound ML63 AMG with the AMG Performance Package is the most powerful SUV out there (the BMW technically has five more horsepower, but it lacks 60 pound-feet of torque), yet it fails being the sportiest. We suspect the comparatively lightweight Porsche (4,784 pounds), with its torque-vectoring drivetrain, variable torque split and lightweight ceramic brakes, will still set the quickest lap with the brawny but powerful track-tuned BMW (5,368 pounds) right on its tail.
No mention of the Jeep...
