The new Mercedes G class was made official last month and now Mercedes has revealed their high performance version of their latest SUV, the 2019 Mercedes AMG G63.
The new Mercedes AMG G63 comes with a hand crafted AMG 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine that produces an impressive 577 horsepower and comes with 627 lb-ft of torque.
This gives the new AMG G63 some impressive performance figures for an SUV, it comes with a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of just 4.4 seconds, this is apparently almost 1 second faster than the previous model.
The new AMG G63 brings driving performance to the segment of unadulterated off-road vehicles in unexpected form. It was important for us to tie in with the original character on account of the cult status the G63 enjoys with our customers and fans. The vehicle has nevertheless reached a completely new dimension in terms of technology with the handcrafted AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine as well as in combination with the off-road characteristics, the agility and the vehicle dynamics achieved,” explains Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
It features a limited top speed of 137 miles per hour in the standard AMG G63, if you go for the optional AMG drivers package then this is increase to 149 miles per hour. It also comes with improved leg room over the previous model.
We will get to see the new Mercedes AMG G63 at the Geneva Motor Show in March, pricing and availability will be revealed at a later date.
