2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 Goes Dark With New Night Package

We’ve seen the new Mercedes G-Class in AMG G63 spec. We’ve seen it with the optional Night Package. What we haven’t seen are the two together. Leave it to the Benz enthusiasts at the MB Passion blog, then, to fill in that particular gap.

Not unlike what we saw on the Edition 1, the Night Package blacks out the turn signals, the wing-mirror housings, the ring around the spare wheel carrier, the front and rear bumper trim, the side skirts, and underbody protection.

It also tints the rear windows and comes with 21- (or optional 22-) inch wheels. Only unlike the Edition 1, there’s no red accents, and production will only be limited to how many Mercedes can sell.

Whatever trim package you do or don’t go for, the G63 packs AMG’s latest 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 – tuned to deliver 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. That’s said to be enough to hustle the big off-roader to 60 in just 4.4 seconds.

Too much? You could always go for the standard G550 instead, and still get the Night Package. You can even order it up with an AMG appearance pack, too. And you can bet that, between the inevitable G65 and Maybach versions, there’ll be more variations on the theme to come over the years ahead. The previous model was, after all, produced for nearly 40 years before this new one arrived, so we’d say Daimler has some time to flesh out the rest of the rock-crawling lineup.
