This Is What The New Mercedes AMG G63 Will Look Like

SUV

Mercedes’ new AMG Line gives the new G-Class a sporty makeover.

The 2018 Mercedes G-Class was arguably the most significant new car reveal at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. At long last, the granddaddy has been reborn in the first all-new model since it launched way back in 1979. Inside, it offers S-Class levels of luxury. But don’t be deceived because the new G-Class is more capable off-road than ever before thanks to its three locking differentials that allow it to tackle the toughest terrain, while the boxy design stays faithful to the original off-roader.

What you may also not realize is that AMG was heavily involved in the development of the new G-Class. The performance division engineered the suspension and front and rear axles, as well as the drivetrain, shaft, and knuckles. While there’s been no word yet on when we can expect the range-topping AMG G63 version of the new G-Class, the new optional AMG Line package gives us an idea of how it will look. While the AMG Line package has previously been available for other Mercedes cars like the C-Class and E-Class, this is the first time it’s been made available for the G-Class SUV.

As reported by Mercedes-Benz Passion, the AMG Line for the G-Class revises the front and rear fascias and adds 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels with a multi-spoke design, as well as beefier wheel arches and “Mercedes-Benz” lettering on the front brake calipers. Brushed aluminum exterior accents have also been added, as well as a sports exhaust system to enhance the soundtrack emitted by the G-Class’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 developing 422 horsepower. Elsewhere, the interior features a new three-spoke steering wheel with red contrast stitching and seatbelts, along with upholstery available in black leather or design leather Nappa, also in black.

AMG floor mats are also fitted by Mercedes. No modifications have been made under the hood, but Mercedes R&D boss Ola Kallenius recently revealed that the new G63 will be out sooner rather than later.
