Mercedes-Benz Prices 2013 SLS AMG GT And 2013 GL63 AMG Models


Just in time for their U.S. debut at this week’s Los Angeles Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz has announced pricing on several new-for-2013 models, including the SLS AMG GT Coupe, the SLS AMG GT Roadster and the GL63 AMG crossover.

Replacing the 2012 SLS AMG Coupe, the 2013 SLS AMG GT will carry a starting price of $202,505, including a destination charge of $905 and a Gas Guzzler Tax of $2,100. That represents a price increase of $10,330, though $400 of that is an increase in the Gas Guzzler Tax and $30 of that is an increase in the destination charge.

If you’d prefer a topless version of the car, the 2013 SLS AMG GT Roadster will begin at $209,005. including the same destination charge and Gas Guzzler Tax applied to the Coupe. That makes the 2013 SLS AMG GT Roadster $10,330 more expensive, same as the Coupe.

Your extra money buys you a bump in horsepower from 563 in 2012 to 583 in 2013, thanks to revised engine management software. The transmission is also recalibrated for faster shifts, particularly in Manual mode. Underneath, a new AMG Adaptive Performance Suspension, stiffer springs and stickier tires ensure added grip in corners.

If your taste in fast runs to SUVs and crossovers, Mercedes-Benz is launching the all-new GL63 AMG for the 2013 model year. Packing AMG’s latest 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 beneath its hood, the GL63 AMG is rated at 550 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. That’s good enough to push the grocery-getter from 0-60 mph in a mere 4.9 seconds, on the way to a 155 mph top speed.



Mercedes-Benz tells us that the 2013 GL63 AMG will be priced from $117,830, including a destination charge of $905.

We’ll bring you live images of the 2013 SLS AMG GT models, the 2013 GL63 AMG crossover and the Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force concept as part of our complete coverage of the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
