When it comes to the ultimate overland experience, nothing beats a new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG For Sale. It is a comfortable position to be in, as they launched the Super SUV war among all manufacturers. As abilities have increased, the Mercedes-AMG G63 price has remained at $147,500. A genuine bargain compared to lesser-equipped competitors, let’s discover what makes the Mercedes-AMG G63 such a force to be reckoned with.
Mercedes-AMG G63 Review
As one of the last body-on-frame SUVs, nothing else from Germany rides as solid and smooth. A proper Mercedes-AMG G63 review should note this is the first G63 with independent front suspension. Not only is steering more predictable, the new 4.0-liter V8 also makes the front end much lighter than predecessors.
Heading off-road, you will have three locking differentials along for the ride. A 2-speed transfer case sends power to all wheels, all the time. Given the Mercedes-AMG horsepower and torque, you will also have fun taking others by surprise. The only quirk is that the window glass is nearly vertical. This makes glare at night transform the interior into a disco hall.
Mercedes-AMG G63 Specs
In order to maintain the title of the World’s Best SUV, the Mercedes-AMG G63 specs are unparalleled. Because it is not a unibody, every G-Class is built on its own assembly line in Austria. Thanks to twin-turbo power, the Mercedes-AMG G63 top speed is 149 mph. Because of permanent All-Wheel-Drive, the Mercedes-AMG 0-60 is 4.5 seconds on dry pavement. When pushed to the limit, it will reward you with a 1/4 mile in 12.5 seconds.
Engine: 4.0L Twin-Turbo V8
Transmission: 9-speed Automatic
Horsepower: 577 hp
Torque: 627 lb-ft
0-60 mph: 4.5 seconds
Top Speed: 149 mph
Mercedes-AMG G63 Engine
Oldtimers will demand the biggest engine available, but the Mercedes-AMG engine makes big power from only 4.0 liters. Starting with reverse-flow heads, the exhaust pulses feed upward into the V. They have a direct shot at two turbochargers.
The “Hot V” allows them to spool instantly, and their variable geometry allows it to offer 577 horsepower and only 627 lb-ft of torque. Power of this magnitude will have you at 60 mph under 5 seconds. Or tow heavy toys in style. The downside G63 mpg. Rated at 11 mpg city and 13 mpg on the highway, it requires 93 octane to be happy.
Mercedes-AMG G63 Transmission
Dual-clutch gearboxes are great in lightweight cars. But when the mud gets deep, nothing beats a torque converter. That’s why the Mercedes-AMG G63 transmission combines the latest in torque converter technology with 9 closely spaced gears. Releasing the converter clutch keeps the turbos spooled, and the transfer case’s low range multiplies torque sent to the ground.
Mercedes-AMG G63 Interior
Open the door and powered running boards reveal your leather chariot. Every Mercedes-AMG G63 interior can be optioned with heated massaging seats with ventilation for the summer. Nappa leather by designo is offered in any color you desire, and the controls are laid out in a symmetrical manner.
Mercedes-AMG G63 Brakes
There is only one better at being an amazing off-road machine is stopping in a hurry. Big power demands big brakes, so the Mercedes-AMG brakes measure 14.8″ front and 13″ rear. Six-piston monoblock calipers grip the front, while the rears are sliding single-piston. Red is the standard color, with silver being optional at no extra cost. Because they are steel, the cost of maintenance will be much less than carbon-ceramics.
Aside from being the most powerful SUV in production, the Mercedes-AMG G63 has a host of standout features. It has enough ground clearance to handle 22″ wheels with ease. They better be forged, because rock crawling is easy. If you don’t plan on off-roading, we recommend a summer tire for grip on the asphalt. But since you can lock all three differentials, a good mud-terrain will keep you moving.
When crossing lakes or creeks, a “wading sensor” closes the cooling vents ahead of the intercoolers. It also closes the thermostat to keep heat in the block. If you need more power, our friends at BRABUS can get you over 900, at the expense of fuel economy.
