That's exactly the problem with the current bmw x7 and gls. Their interior is exactly the same of x5 and gle. Same engines and mechanic too. They could call them x5 lwb and gle lwb basically.

Actually the AMG 53 will also have the Panamerican grill. I expect the 63 version to have something different.

I believe that is true what you saying about the front grill.


That will be very weird to have 53 and 63 with same front AMG kit as i think the rear will be different buy the 53 round exhaust and 63 square.

After looking more at the pic I have of the 63 if you think the X7 has a large grill just wait until you see the size of the one it will have. WOW is it HUGE!!! Dare I say the X7 grill in comparison will be much smaller. The 63 grill takes up half the bumper height, best I can tell is prob about 14-16" tall. It does seem to be taller than the 450/580 photos currently around but same width.

The 63 I have seen fully uncovered is in the bright blue without the night package. To say its underwhelmingly not aggressive at all is an understatement. The chrome trim along the bumper trim I think if all black with the night package would make a bigger diff. Basically take the current 63 lower bumper and graft it on with a LARGE panamerican grill and the new headlights.

The wheels while this is a pre-production model are multi-spoke (13)

Spring 2020 at the best but the there's a 3 months delay of the GLE 450 already because of factory and suppliers gridlock. I'm optimistic for summer 53 and fall 63

i don't know, I will ask those I know at the factory but they likely don't know either. Wish I could post the full pic but not risking someone's job for a pic, but its fully uncovered. Would love the see the rear uncovered but no pics of the rear as it was backed up next to a fence.

I really want to see the GLE Coupe that was under a cover next to it, here is crop from the full photo of the GLE Coupe covered. Doesn't show much but it's there, and you get a slight glimpse of the 63.


Told they expect the GLS Maybach to have same grill just lots more chrome on the front, no surprise there. They believed there was a Maybach under one of the other covered cars surrounding the 63.
