2013 Range Rover Supercharged Beats Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG in Road Test
When the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover was launched in the U.S. last winter, it was received with enthusiasm and questions about how the changes introduced in the new generation would affect its performance. After a few months in the market, the flagship Range Rover model is certainly proving its worth. Motor Trend magazine just conducted a face-to-face comparison between the 2013 Range Rover Supercharged and the Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG to see which premium SUV offers the best overall package for drivers who are prepared to pay the big bucks in exchange for luxury and performance.
Both models command a six-figure sticker price, with the Mercedes-Benz being slightly more expensive, and on top of that you can add options to your heart’s content if you want either one in the best possible trim. On paper, the Range Rover has less power, but in reality it accelerates more quickly thanks to its new leaner body and lighter aluminum frame. Actually, performance figures are very similar overall but, if refinement is a priority, the Range Rover comes on top with a quieter ride. Motor Trend editors valued its seating space, luxurious roomy interior and comfort, giving the Range Rover the edge in ride quality over its German rival. And just in case you wanted to take such an expensive vehicle off-road, the Range Rover is undeniably the more capable model.
