First Look: Mercedes-AMG G63

More muscle for an off-road beast.

by on Feb.13, 2018

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 features several distinctive design details, including its grille and side exhaust pipes.

Less than a month after Arnold Schwarzenegger helped pull the wraps off the next-generation Mercedes G-Wagen, the German automaker is back with an even more bulked-up version of the off-road beast.

With a helping hand from the AMG side of the family the new G63 will boast the sort of power that one might more typically expect from a Mercedes sports car, a full 577 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.


“The new AMG G63 brings driving performance to the segment of unadulterated off-road vehicles in unexpected form,” said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.” The vehicle has evertheless 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.”

It may look the same, but it’s bigger, badder and carries over just three parts.

Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche and Arnold Schwarzenegger celebrate the debut of the 2019 G-Wagen.

They both hail from the same small town in Austria and they’re both known for their muscle. So it was fitting that the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was on hand for the debut of the all-new Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen on Sunday night.

The splashy event, held at a one-time movie palace on the edge of Detroit’s downtown, featured the same sort of pyrotechnics the one-time body builder was familiar with from his career in Hollywood.

We're Going to Pump You Up!

“This SUV can do anything and everything and that’s what I love about this car,” Schwarzenegger declared as he climbed out of one of the new 2019 SUVs to join Daimler AG CEO Dieter Zetsche on stage.

The outgoing Mercedes GL.

The New York Auto Show has landed another big announcement, Mercedes-Benz planning to bring to the Big Apple its next-generation GL SUV.

As with the smaller ML, the big G, the descendant of the legendary Gelandewagen, will migrate to a car-based platform.  In fact, various media reports indicate the GL will share the smaller crossover’s underpinnings.

Spy photos show a big ute with a more aggressive front end than the outgoing GL, including a two-bar grille and with what one source described as “LED-infused” headlights.

Stay in the Know!

Overall length is expected to remain the same, though the modified platform reportedly will permit a much larger cabin – and one more lavishly outfitted.  Along with premium leather and wood, the new ML is also expected to get the latest Mercedes-Benz COMAND infotainment system and other high-tech goodies.
