It’s available for the 53, 63, and 63 S models in standard and “coupe” flavors.
The year 2022 celebrates the 50th anniversary of BMW M, as well as the 55th anniversary of archrival AMG. Affalterbach’s lads and girls are commemorating the occasion with a slew of limited-edition “Edition 55” cars, including six SUVs introduced today. They’re based on the traditional GLE and the sleeker GLE Coupe in the 55, 63, and 63 S variants, but with a few aesthetic modifications.
The GLE Edition 55 has a retro-style side sticker with the iconic insignia on a body painted in either Obsidian Black or Diamond White Bright, harkening back to the 1980s. .The sextuplet rides on 22-inch forged wheels with a cross-spoke design and a matte gray finish while the wheel centers surrounding the three-pointed star say “Edition 55.”

Mercedes has equipped these SUVs with the AMG Night Package, which includes high-gloss black exterior elements. The cosmetic upgrades vary depending on the main colour, but all vehicles come with tinted windows and quad exhaust tips with black chrome plating. The gasoline filler cap is plated in silver chrome with AMG lettering, demonstrating the attention to detail.
The inside of the Edition 55 is black and red, with AMG lighted in red on the stainless steel door sills, regardless of the version. The “Edition 55” emblem is woven in crimson on the custom floor mats to emphasise the message. Nappa leather upholstery that extends to the centre console and door cards is standard on the 63 S and available on the 63 and 53. An embossed AMG crest may be found on the middle armrest.
Mercedes-AMG is already accepting orders for the GLE Edition 55 and will continue to do so until the end of 2022. It’s available as an extra package retailing from €5,950 to €13,090 depending on which GLE you order. For your money’s worth, Mercedes throws in an AMG-branded indoor car cover. The Edition 55 is also available in the United States for the GLE 53 and GLE 63 S, with each model limited to 55 examples.
