The G-Class is special in the Mercedes-Benz lineup because around half of the sales are high-performance models built by Mercedes-AMG.
With the SUV icon ready to undergo its first redesign considering that the nameplate’s launch four decades earlier, you can bet the engineers will be investing extra time on guaranteeing the redesigned G63 from AMG is just right.
2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 Design
Here we see some models for the upgraded G63. We understand they are the AMG model since of their uprated wheels and brakes. They also feature extra-large openings in the lower part of their front bumper, similar to on the present model.
The interior should also get a major revamp. From the latest spy shots, it looks like the main infotainment screen will be incorporated with the dash. There is also a grab handle remaining on the passenger side. We can also expect a digital instrument cluster to feature behind a multi-function wheel.
The redesigned G-Class is shaping up to be much broader than on the present model. It will also be lower, helping to decrease the center of mass. These changes are targeted at assisting the vehicle’s stability on and off the road.
Another key modification needs to be the increased usage of aluminum and high-strength steel in the building and construction in order to reduce weight, potentially cutting the existing model’s 5,665-pound curb weight by as much as 440 lb. This need to lead to better performance numbers.
2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 Engine
Under the hood, anticipate the vehicle to benefit from AMG’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, with output eclipsing the 563 horsepower of the present model’s 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8.
Even more down the track we should see an upgraded version of the V-12-powered G65. Exactly what isn’t clear is whether the revamped AMG models will feature Mercedes’ latest 9-speed auto or continue with a 7-speeder.
2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 Release Date
Look for the revamped G-Class range to show up in display rooms in 2018, as 2019 models.
