Mercedes-Benz GLK63 AMG In The Works: Report

Mercedes-Benz is set to launch a second-generation GLK-Class next year, and it may feature a high-performance AMG variant. The key is the AMG division’s new twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, the M178, which debuts later this year in the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car and will eventually become the sole V-8 offered by the AMG hot house.

According to Car and Driver, the M178’s smaller 4.0-liter displacement compared to the existing 5.5- and 6.2-liter engines offered by AMG makes the new unit more favorable in countries where tax regulations are based on engine size. This will allow the engine to be offered in more vehicles, like the new GLK.
