Mercedes launched the GL63 AMG in India today. The mammoth performance-oriented SUV has no competition in India from its traditional rivals, the Q7 and X5. However, the top-end 2014 Range Rover Sport with the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S sport similar specs as the GL63.

All three SUVs come with large-displacement V8 engines. While the GL63 gets a 5.5-liter twin-turbo, the Cayenne features a 4.8-liter twin-turbo, and the Range Rover Sport relies on a 5.0-liter supercharged engine. The Mercedes makes the most power as a result, 557 hp, as compared to 550 hp from the Porsche and 510 hp from the Range Rover.
