When it comes to costly models, the NHTSA and IIHS tend to crash the standard vehicle that the go-faster model is based on. The entry-level G-Class retails for $139,900 in the US; so yeah, it was never going to happen. This means there's no official safety rating or review for the Mercedes-AMG G63 SUV. Mercedes does offer the G63 with all the necessary active and passive safety features, though, and the new model has the benefit of a fully independent suspension.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
We're happy to report that the previous model's rudimentary stability control system has been dumped in favor of a more advanced stability system. The G63 also has ABS brakes, LED headlights, and ten airbags. The driver assistance features include adaptive cruise control, speed-limit assist, and active lane-keep assist. It also has active parking assist with a surround-view monitor and active rear cross-traffic assist.

So far, the 2023 G-Class lineup has been recalled once for a fuel-pump shutdown that may cause a loss of drive power. This recall is also applicable to the 2022 model, in addition to a more serious one that is accompanied by stop-drive notice - for a rear-axle differential housing that may break, potentially causing a crash. The 2021 G-class lineup had six recalls listed and the 2020 range was subject to seven, so things are certainly improving.
The Mercedes-AMG G63 is covered by a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, including powertrain cover.
