    The Mercedes ML63 AMG production run comes to an end

    Click here to enlarge

    Autoblog is reporting that the ML63 production has ended. This ML generation continues on until the next gen set to come in as a 2013 model but the ML63 AMG is no more. Does this mean we will not get a new AMG model until the next generation? Based on ML precedent, yes, but Mercedes often breaks precedent. Either way, if a new engine makes its way in or not, this ML63 is done.

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I'm switching to an ML for DD. When they told me the base price for the AMG, I said $#@! that.

    Look at them slightly used... price drops like a rock.

    I like how Mercedes will even do an AMG mini-van.

    Slightly used is the way to go.

    AMG's fall harder but all ML's.

    I wouldn't buy an M156 anyway. I'm actually trying to decide between gas ML350 or Blutec.

    Just depends on your priorities. Diesel has better MPG and torque but the 350 is a livelier motor and quicker.

    Well, I plan on DD'ing it and then buying a garage queen later this year. Both can tow a 22ft wakeboard boat so it's not a huge issue.

    Exactly, both will handle that no problem. Just up to you on your preference.

    Best ML is the ML550; avoids the harsh ride and fuel economy issues of the ML63, and leaves the ML350 in the dust performance wise.

    If I'm going to spend a 100K on an SUV for performance, you better be damn sure it will be a 2011 Cayenne Turbo.

    I think I would agree with you, the 550 is a great choice.

    In my opinion that is the best on the market right now. Considering the trade of my Cayenne S in, although for an older Cayenne Turbo as a project car.

    The 2011 Cayenne is a tenfold improvement over the previous model.
