Mercedes-Benz has just gone ahead and given the recently launched G-Class the AMG treatment. The G63 has been equipped with the tuner's 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, the same engine fitted to the regular G-Class. However in the AMG state of 63 tune, the G63 makes a massive 577bhp and an insane 850 Nm of torque. And it’s not just a power bump, fuel efficiency goes up too thanks to cylinder deactivation technology and the addition of a 9-speed automatic instead of the outgoing model's 7-speed. The new G63 is also considerably lighter than its predecessor, though a final figure hasn't been announced.
Acceleration will cause increased heart beats with AMG estimating a 0-100kmph time of 4.4 seconds which is a full second quicker than the previous model and will go on to hit a top speed of almost 240 kmph. AMG has also significantly enhanced the suspension the design of the G63, which is also helped along by the new G-Class's independent double wishbone suspension at the front and five-link setup at the rear. The G63 also sports adaptive dampers and coil springs at each corner. It also has additional transverse stabilizers at both ends to reduce body roll.
The new G63 will make its debut at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show and will arrive in showrooms towards the end of the year, as a 2019 model.
