After unveiling the second generation G-Class, all that was left to do was to unveil its AMG sibling. Well, here it is then, proudly wearing the Panamericana Grille, the new Mercedes-AMG G 63.
Signature features such as side pipes have been retained. Other exterior features include AMG bumper with large side air inlets and matt iridium silver trim. The wheel options can go up to 22-inches.
The popular 4.0-litre V8 biturbo replaces the previous 5.5-litre V8 biturbo in the new G 63. It delivers 430 kW (585 hp) @ 6,000 rpm and 850 Nm of torque @ 2,500-3,500 rpm. Transmission is an AMG Speedshift 9G TCT, sending power to the all four wheels via 4Matic all-wheel drive with rear-biased torque distribution of 40:60. The G 63 sprints from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 220 km/h. With the Driver’s package, it can go up to 240 km/h.
AMG Ride Control suspension with adaptive adjustable damping comes as standard, and so is the AMG speed-sensitive steering. It has a variable ratio to ensure precise and authentic feedback.
The new G 63 will celebrate its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on 6 March 2018. Market launch begins from June 2018.
