How spacious is the back seat and do the kids have enough charging ports for their gadgets are questions that not many Mercedes-AMG G63 buyers ask at the dealer. And for very good reason: what you see is what you get – and what you get is a very potent off-roader with an iconic name, and a premium vibe that goes like stink.
Those questions would simply fade away when faced with the possibility of buying a three-door version of it. And if you have a hard time imagining exactly the way it would look, you need wonder no more, because CarNewsNetwork has taken a virtual shot at rendering it.
Aside from the removal of the rear doors, the G63 has been shortened, too, to the point where it would fit either two occupants at the front and still have a decent boot, or four and wave luggage space bye-bye. You know, like the new Suzuki Jimny. Honestly, we wouldn’t say no to such a ride, but even with the shorter wheelbase, it would still be beyond our reach price-wise. Just keep in mind that the new G63 has a $147,500 MSRP in the United States – and even if Merc rolled out a three-door, we have a hard time imagining the price would go down…
We know what you’re thinking: could the powers-that-be at Stuttgart be planning a modern-day three-door G-Wagen? Well, its predecessor was offered in this guise, as both a coupe and a convertible, so it’s not that far-fetched. Would we bet on it? Probably not, but as it’s often the case with new models, nobody knows for sure until it happens.
