2019 Mercedes G63 AMG. The Mercedes G63 AMG is part of an increasing number of high-performance SUVs that include the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trakhawk and the Tesla X P100D. Analysts say such high-speed SUVs are made to meet customers’ demand for more energy and create excitement about existing products. Following the introduction of a redesigned Mercedes-Benz G-Class at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the German brand Amg has taken the sub-brand automotive hoods from the high-performance G63. The new Mercedes G63 AMG9 will be redesigned for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show.
Buyers can choose the AMG package for the night, giving the G63 a more sinister look. The package includes dark headlights, rear lenses, and lens lights, as well as tailgate and side windows. The opsidian black paint is used on exterior mirror caps, a spare wheel ring and trim on the front and rear bumpers. Black treatment is also the brush guards and black wheels 21 or 22 inches matte. Exclusive “Edition 1” special models will be offered from 2019 Mercedes G63 AMG when the new car goes on sale.
The Designo scheme includes a night of black Magno paint with matte gray graphite contrasting stripes sporting along the sides of the car, finished with exterior mirror cans that wear a decorative red stripe. The 22-inch black forged wheels feature a cross-design with red-painted edges. The red light continues indoors including topstitch contrast on the dashboard. Support, central console, door panels and back seats. The diamond-front front seats are also used in black / red leather red Napa pepper. Other highlights include carbon fiber trim and flat flatbed steering wheeled microfiber.
In addition to adopting the new interior and exterior of the newly refurbished G class, the 2019 Mercedes G63 AMG boasts a 4.0 liter V8 turbocharged engine, which produces 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. This output is delivered to all four wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission. The torque split was also changed to get a more 40:60 biased drive ratio and the G63 sports AMG-specific touches such as custom mesh, wheeled bows, side tubes and 22-inch wheels. The G63 completes a race from zero to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds (EST), 0.9 seconds faster than the previous model.
This dynamic performance is maintained up to the maximum speed limit of 137 mph, or 149 mph with the AMG driver package. In terms of fuel economy, Mercedes-Amg has supplied the V8 engine in the G63 with the AMG Cylinder cylinder management system. In the partial loading range, two, three, five and eight cylinders are disabled, which greatly reduces fuel consumption.
Pricing will be announced closer to the launch at the end of 2018. The 2019 Mercedes G63 AMG will debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6.
