The AMG GT appeared to be the inspiration for the front fascia of the updated model, which seemed to have a more defined look compared to its predecessor. Due to this, the front bumper is more curvaceous and features a new grille and headlight design. It also comes with bigger air intakes. The rear of the updated SL63 features a modified bumper with an integrated air diffuser and new taillights.

Speculations have emerged on the possibility that the SL will be given the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine currently being used on the latest AMG models. However, it is also possible for the updated AMG SL63 to utilize the same 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which is used on the current model. This engine has a power output of 577 HP and torque of 664 lb-ft. These figures will allow the face-lifted Mercedes-AMG SL63 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h within 4.2 seconds before reaching its electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h or 155 mph.
