When it comes to performance, Mercedes-Benz has been at the forefront for 55 years, and that includes their off-road vehicles. The Mercedes AMG G 63 is a testament to the brand’s illustrious past, brought to life through a bold new look. Here’s everything you need to know.
Engine and Performance
The G63 has a handcrafted AMG 4.0L V-8 Biturbo that produces 577 hp at 6,000 RPM. A paddle-shifted nine-speed automatic drives the all-wheel-drive system (4Matic). Low-range gearing (2.93:1) and three locking differentials let the G63 conquer rough terrain. Despite weighing 5800 pounds, the G63 can reach 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
Despite its height and off-road specialization, the SUV’s ride comfort is substantially improved over previous G-wagons. In addition, the G63 has a towing capacity of 7,000 lbs.
Fuel efficiency and MPG
A quick SUV isn’t going to be very fuel-efficient. For example, the EPA estimates city and highway fuel economy for the G63 to be 13 and 15 mpg, respectively. However, in a 75-mpg highway fuel-economy test, the G63 surpassed its EPA rating by recording a 16-mpg score. Visit EPA’s website for the G-fuel class’s efficiency.
Interior and Cargo
The G63 features Nappa leather upholstery, powered rear seats with memory, heated front seats, and much more. It has a passenger capacity of up to 5 people. Tall drivers and passengers have ample front and rear head and legroom. However, you’ll need to be in good shape to open the side-hinged G-class lift gate because it’s not powered and features a full-size spare tire. The G63 has a cargo capacity of 38.1-68.6 cu ft.
The G63 has a 12.3-inch high-resolution central display, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster display, COMAND system with a touchpad controller, and a steering wheel with touch control buttons. In addition, it has two USB connections and an SD card reader. Options include Wi-Fi, a rear entertainment system, and two 10-inch touchscreens with USB, auxiliary, and HDMI connectors. A three-year subscription to Mercedes-Benz’s linked car services includes remote engine starting and stolen vehicle tracking.
The G63 has adaptive cruise control but can’t restart for more extended periods during stop-and-go driving. Some key features include;
- Active Brake Assist
- Attention Assist
- Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC
- Mercedes-Benz Emergency Call
Should You Buy It?
The G-Class is a luxury SUV to buy if you want to stand out. It has an incredible amount of off-road technology, a high-class interior, and a strong V-8 engine. However, it is prone to crosswinds and gets low gas mileage.
The G63 comes with a hefty price tag, and you might have many questions running through your mind before deciding to buy the vehicle. If that’s the case, you can rent the car and see if it fits your personality. Renting it will not only clear any doubts you might have but also save you a lot of money if you change your mind.
