Mercedes-Benz enthusiast site, Mercedes-Benz Passion, recently heard through the grapevine that Stuttgart might be preparing to reveal the highly-rumored and anticipated GLE 63 AMG Coupe at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week.

Mercedes got around to revealing the GLE not too long ago and given the fact they love to give nearly every model they make a full-fledged AMG treatment, the GLE is no different. That said, it’s only a matter of time until we see a GLE 63 AMG.
Power is expected to be supplied by AMG’s new standard 4.0L twin-turbo V8 from the new AMG GT, which is also the same motor in the new C63 AMG, except in a different state of tune. No specifics to the potential GLE 63’s mill were disclosed. But it won’t be a small figure since the AMG GT’s version can produce either 463hp or 510hp for the S model, while the C63 churns out 476hp and 510hp in S form.
