New Mercedes-AMG G 63 unveiled

New Mercedes-AMG G 63 unveiled

Engine options for the Maybach will remain the same.

Like the "regular" G-Class unveiled a year ago, the new G63 is longer (101mm), wider (121 mm) and taller (40mm) than its predecessor, with a design best described as evolutionary. Expect to see the 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 debut at Geneva next month.

It now features coil springs on all four corners of the vehicle, while the front axle fully-independent wishbone suspension is a first for the G-Class.

According to Mercedes, the S560 can hit 60 miles per hour in just 4.8 seconds while the S650 can make the same sprint in 4.6 ticks of a stopwatch.

The engine is paired with a specially-tuned nine-speed automatic gearbox, 4MATIC all-wheel drive and adjustable suspension.

Exact specifications and prices for the United Kingdom have not been confirmed, but it's expected that customer deliveries will start in the summer.

The two twin scroll turbos are mounted within the "V" of the engine block which, among other things, helps minimize turbo lag. Pricing will be announced later in 2018, with the cars expected to hit dealerships in late summer. Comfort, Sport, Eco and configurable Individual modes feature, along with optional G-Mode, which optimises the G-Class for off-road use.

It's possible that hybrid G-Class models could arrive further down the line, but a fully electric version is very unlikely.

The C-Class features a range of new infotainment and connectivity, along with fresh engines, but it stays on the same platform as before, so the car's styling gets a subtle evolution instead of any major changes. As a result, any time a new Mercedes-Maybach is announced, auto aficionados and those who love all things glitz take serious notice.

Continuing with the Mercedes-Maybach theme, the S-Class will come with a two-tone exterior paint finish and there will be 9 different color combinations available. The system can be controlled via the touch-sensitive pads on the steering wheel, as well as a new touchpad controller on the centre console.

Slightly larger than the previous high powered G model, the G 63 has more room inside and comes with what Mercedes calls its optional widescreen cockpit which projects the instruments on to the windscreen as a head up display.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class facelift comes with updated seats that get body massage functions.
