MERCEDES BENZ G 63 AMG (W463) 5.5 V8 BiTurbo (2012 – Present) Description & History: Mercedes Benz has brought the 2013 G-Class up to date in terms of fittings, trying to thus keep hold of its dominant position in the luxury off-rader segment.
Major changes are especially visible inside, where new instrument cluster and center console were introduced by the German automaker, bringing the G in line with the new ML- and GL-Class SUVs. Also worth mentioning is the new LCD and Command system that brings together navigation and internet connectivity functions.
As far as the exterior goes, Mercedes has changed the side mirrors, headlights and LED daytime running lamps. The 2013 G-Class has also been fitted with Blind Spot Assist & Distronic Plus systems.
The new 2013 Mercedes G63 AMG impresses with a state-of-the-art powertrain, updated design and updated efficiency. The AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine delivering 544 hp and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7-speed automatic transmission is the main factor behind these changes. For those of you that can hardly wait, the 2013 G63 AMG makes its U.S. showroom debut in August.
Every new AMG high-performance vehicle offers an outstanding mix of “more power from less fuel” – and the G63 AMG is no exception. The “strong man” in the AMG model range has been further enhanced with the state-of-the-art powertrain of the new ML63 AMG.
The design has been comprehensively refreshed, so that, for the first time in the 33-year history of the G-Class, AMG customers can enjoy some of the latest cutting-edge systems: spray-controlled gasoline direct injection, the ECO stop/start function and alternator management. The AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine develops a maximum output of 544 hp and a torque of 560 lb-ft.
This enables the 2013 G63 AMG to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds, with a top speed of 130 mph (electronically limited).
The new G63 AMG outperforms it’s predecessor, the G55 AMG KOMPRESSOR, by 44 hp and 44 lb-ft of torque, and was a clear favorite for G-Class purchasers, making-up 40 percent of sales globally.
