Mercedes-Benz GLK 63 AMG reportedly in development with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8

The second-generation Mercedes GLK has been testing some time now and is expected to debut later this year or in early 2015.

Different prototypes have revealed that the next GLK will have a longer wheelbase, lower roofline, putting it right between the GLA and M-Class.

The bulky design will be replaced also with a rounder look.

The current outgoing model has not been offered as a hot AMG variant, but that will reportedly change with the new second-generation model.

Mercedes recently unveiled the new twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 that will first debut in the upcoming AMG GT followed by other models like the next C 63 AMG and next E 63 AMG.

Latest report from Car & Driver suggests the engine will also find its way into the GLK 63 AMG.

Power output number for the GLK 63 AMG is not known, but in the AMG GT S the engine produces 503bhp and 479 lb-ft) of torque.

The more standard entry-level model will have around 450bhp and that’s likely how much the engine will pack in the GLK 63 AMG.
