AMG’s future plans could also expand to include the new Mercedes ute, due to land in Oz in 2018.
AMG boss Tobias Moers revealed Affalterbach is considering fettling a more hardcore variant of the ute, expected to be called the Mercedes- Benz GLT. Pitched as a rival to Toyota’s Hilux and the Ford Ranger, the GLT will share underpinnings with the D23 Nissan Navara.
Don’t hold your breath for an AMG-tuned V8-powered GLT, though. Moers said AMG’s involvement is likely to be cosmetic: “It won’t be a proper AMG car,” he said.
