The first generation GLK does not wear an AMG suit but this will change for the second generation. The future GLC 63 AMG will benefit from the new twin-turbo V8 4.0 litre.
The second generation Mercedes-Benz GLK (new name: GLC) has been spied again in AMG guise.
The first generation GLK was one of the few Mercedes models which does not have an AMG version, but this will change with the next generation which will be released in the middle of the next year.
There were some rumours of an AMG version and now these have been confirmed. The future AMG version of GLC will use the newly developed twin-turbo V8 4.0 litre from the AMG GT and C 63 AMG.
The all new GLC will be radically different in design from actual model and will also grow in size to clearly differentiate from the smaller brother GLA.
As we already wrote in the previous articles, the second generation GLK will have a more rounded design and a roof with a coupe line.
On the inside, GLC will take over the new dashboard from C-Class including the already much criticized free standing touchscreen display.
The new GLK which will bear the name GLC (code name X253) according to the official informations from Mercedes will go on sale in September 2015 and the AMG version will follow in the first half of 2016.
There are rumours of a second version named GLC Coupe (code name C253) which will compete against BMW X4 and will be launch some months later after GLC.
