The new AMG G 63 was launched today by Mr. Michael Jopp, Vice President – Sales & Marketing – Mercedes-Benz India. With the launch of the new AMG G 63, the G-Class from Mercedes-Benz undergoes the biggest change in its history. The G 63 is the original among the performance off-roaders and is the yardstick for all competitors and this is true for the new generation as well. The new AMG G 63 can do everything better than the preceding models, while retaining its core virtues. The new Mercedes-AMG G 63 is priced starting INR 2.19 crore ex-showroom Pan India.
Powered by a 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine that generates an astonishing 430 kW (585 hp) of power, helps it attain 100 km/h from standstill in a mere 4.5 seconds. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmissions used in the G 63 has a model-specific software application to achieve very short shift times.
The new AMG G 63 underpins its unique position among performance off-road vehicles with the powerful drive system, the newly developed AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension, the AMG-specific transmission modes and a torsionally rigid body shell mounted on a strong ladder-type chassis. The new bodyshell, mounted on a high-strength ladder-type frame, comes with increased torsional rigidity via a new material mix yet the SUV is 65 kgs lighter.
Mr. Michael Jopp, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India said, “Around the world, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is acknowledged as the benchmark amongst luxury off-road vehicles. Today, we offer fans of the AMG brand as well as customers in India the latest iteration of this cult luxury off-roader, the Mercedes-AMG G 63. The AMG G 63 has now reached a completely new dimension in terms of technology with the 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine, combined with its off-road characteristics, its agility and vehicle dynamics. The extreme rock-climbing abilities combined with sports car performance, class leading styling and a high-tech cabin makes the new Mercedes-AMG G 63 yet another legend in the making.”
“Mercedes-Benz continues its product offensive and the new AMG G 63 is the tenth product we have launched for the Indian market in 2018. We are glad our product portfolio has been able to excite and fascinate our customers and we have been receiving overwhelming response for our new as well as existing products.
