The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG
The new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG will contain the company’s spectacular V8 bi-turbo engine. The emergence of that piece of news alone ensured that much hype would be made of the vehicle.
Power, acceleration and top speed
The 6.2 litre engine powers up to a maximum of 500 BHP and a maximum torque of 561lb ft. Despite being such a large vehicle, it will race from 0 – 62 MPH in only 5.4 seconds. The vehicle’s top speed will hit 130 MPH.
The more expensive Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG
If that isn’t enough for you, there is always the G65 AMG. This costs £214,000 and hits a maximum of 604 BHP, quite a remarkable figure. It’s V12 powered engine defines the most expensive car available within the AMG brand. This is near enough twice the cost of the G63 AMG. It won’t necessarily get you anywhere much quicker if you are in rush, with the 0 – 62 MPH time being 0.1 quicker. The maximum speed of the G65 AMG is 143 MPH with a maximum torque of 734lb ft.
Electronic stability not able to be switched off
The G63 AMG will come with an Electronic Stability Programme. This makes the vehicle a lot safer on the road and enhances it’s off-road capabilities. Considering the power and size of the truck, it is important that this particular feature is not able to be switched off at any moment.
Interior of the G63 AMG
The interior has improved a great deal. It now resembles a typical luxurious Mercedes-Benz. The interior now sees a brand new Command Multimedia Interface. The G65 goes a step further implementing Mercedes-Benz’s leather Designo seats. These are an optional extra on the G63 AMG however.
On the outside there a huge 20 inch alloy wheels, an AMG grille, brand new bumpers with larger air intakes and LED daytime running head lights.
Safety greatly improved
The car’s safety has been greatly improved at the same time. Now there are new systems introduced such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Voice control upon the satellite navigation system and blind spot assistance.
Poor reviews across the board
Some expert reviews have been very disappointed with the way the car drives. Mercedes-Benz has surprisingly labelled it as a performance car. Reviews claim it does not live up to that title in any meaning of the word.
