To give you a quick refresher, even though it looks similar to its predecessor with its boxy silhouette and other familiar touches, this is an all-new version of the G-Wagen. It adopts a more robust body shell and a widened ladder-frame chassis. Ground clearance is up to 241mm, and the new G 63 also gets heavily redesigned suspension.
The cabin features a newly designed dashboard with Mercedes-Benz’s Widescreen Cockpit that comes with digital instruments in combination with two 12.3-inch displays as standard. There is also significantly more shoulder room and legroom than before.
Powering the new G 63 is a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 petrol motor produces 585hp and 850Nm of torque. It's mated to a new AMG Speedshift TCT 9G 9-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels via Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. Mercedes-AMG claims the G 63 can go from 0-100kph in just 4.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically capped at 220kph – or 240kph with the AMG Driver's package specified.
We will reveal more about the cars and SUVs that will be showcased at the Autocar Performance Show 2018, so stay tuned for more!
