All-New Mercedes-AMG G63 Shows Its Grunt On Film

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 that has just been revealed by the German automaker might just be the best of its kind, with a potent powertrain and chassis tweaks wrapped under an aggressive design.

It’s based on the all-new G-Class and was unveiled earlier today prior to its public premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in just a few weeks.

So, what makes it so special? Well, for starters there’s a beefed up body kit, Panamericana grille, specific wheels, dual exhaust pipes on each side, and an updated cabin.

And that’s not all, because the all-new G63 is supposed to handle, too, thanks to the tweaked chassis, new suspension and three locking differentials. It also gets better brakes and off-roading enthusiasts will be glad to know that the low-range transmission remains on the options’ list.

However, it wouldn’t really be an AMG without a potent engine, and just like the entire modern ’63’ range, it uses Merc’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. The unit is good for 585PS (577hp) and 850Nm (627lb-ft) of torque and is mated toh a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to channel the output to the new 4Matic AWD system developed by AMG.

The official 0-100km/h (0-62mph) time is 4.5 seconds and top speed is electronically limited at 220km/h (137mph). Still, opt for the AMG Driver’s Package and the limiter will be lifted to 240km/h (149mph).

Until getting the chance to see it live in early March during the Swiss automotive event, enthusiasts can check out the new Mercedes-AMG G63 in the three official videos that follow.

    The sculpting around the headlights and grill reminds me of a marshmallow (in this color) lol. This new AMG grill looks nice on it though. Wish it had different side mirrors that were boxier to match the overall design language!

    The more images I see of the new G-Class the more I dislike it. It just comes across as so “watered down” compared to the more “macho” last generation model.

    The lack of horizontal LED strips below the headlights is killing me! Those were cool
