All-new Mercedes-AMG G63 SUV revealed

All-new Mercedes-AMG G63 SUV revealed

Mercedes is keeping quiet on which engines will be offered with the new C-Class, but we're expecting a major overhaul of the current car's line-up.

It might look reassuringly familiar, but celebs everywhere can now rejoice with the official unveiling of the all-new Mercedes-AMG G 63.

Hot on the heels of the regular G-Class range, Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled its new AMG G63 blending all of the new generation G's interior and structural improvements with the performance arm's ballistic twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8. As standard, the auto still comes with halogen units.

The G-Class' boxy silhouette remains largely unchanged, although AMG-specific changes include beefier bumpers with larger air inlets, some seriously cool side-exit exhaust pipes, a unique front grille and with a host of gloss-black and matt-silver trim inserts.

With an ability to sprint from standstill to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds, the Mercedes-AMG G63 will be packing 430 kilowatts and 850 Newton metres of torque when it arrives late this year. Since the Maybach launched in February 2015, over 25,000 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class models have already been sold.

Engine options for the Maybach will remain the same.

The new G 63 will debut at the Geneva Motor Show, before arriving in United Kingdom showrooms later in the year. Power now comes from a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine, married to a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

The 2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class was revealed ahead of its world premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month.

Behind the wheel you can select five different on-road driving modes - Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual. It'll go on sale at the end of March, with deliveries to follow from August.

Optional equipment includes a new 12.3in high-definition digital instrument display offering three themes (Classic, Sport and Progressive), a revised multi-function steering wheel with touch-control pads, a 10.25in free-standing infotainment display and a touchpad controller within a reworked centre console. Inside, Mercedes-Maybach will offer two new color combinations, also exclusive to the sub-brand. Like the new G-Class, the G 63 features plenty of goodies first featured on the S Class, making this new G Class and G 63 the most luxurious and tech-heavy in the model's history. Local specifications and pricing will be announced closer to the local launch date. The main markets are China, Russia and the USA.
