While we always hate to be the bearers of bad news, it is our job to report to all of our readers, even the GLK lovers, that Tobias Moers, AMG Director of Vehicle Development announced that while AMG has had discussions about a future GLK AMG, they just don’t see a market for one right now.  If you’re a glass half full kind of person, there’s a small glimmer of hope in that statement, “right now”. These statements come out after AMG committed an increased line-up of all-wheel-drive vehicles.

When asked about Audi dilluting their RS lineup with it’s mini SUV, Moer added that, “What they [Audi] did with the RSQ3, I don’t think is the right strategy.” “It’s not enough horsepower for an RS model”.

As for that glimmer of hope that a GLK AMG could someday happen, Moer also noted that “Maybe we will change our mind” “Maybe there will be a change in market when the Porsche [Macan] comes up, but right now, no.” Source: CarAdvice
