2019 Mercedes-AMG G 63

The Mercedes-AMG G63 follows on the heels of the new G-Class in January. Like the base G-Class, the car keeps the characteristic slightly-retro styling that has made the G-Class such a classic since its introduction as a civilian car in 1979. The new car is now powered by a 4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 instead of the previous generation's 5.5 liter twin turbocharged V8. In spite of the decreased displacement, output has risen by an additional 14 and 66 lb-ft of torque. It's quicker as well, with a 0-62 mph time of 4.5 seconds, whereas its predecessor took 5.4 seconds to reach the same speed. With all of that power, the engine also offers cylinder deactivation, with the engine running on only 4 cylinders for improved fuel efficiency.

The transmission is the AMG Speedshift TCT 9G with very short shift times, and the 4AMATIC AWD system now offers a 40:60 front/rear power split instead of the 50:50 split of the earlier model. This allows for improved agility and traction.
