The all-new Mercedes-AMG G63 underpins its unique position among top performance off-road vehicles with its powerful drive system, available new AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension and unique design elements. It also offers an even greater spread between dynamic on-road performance and off-road capability. The new AMG G63 also benefits from changes across the G-Class model series, including an infotainment upgrade, which brings the MBUX infotainment system to the G-Class for the first time. The 2025 Mercedes-AMG G63 arrives at U.S. dealerships in second half of 2024.

“The G-Class is an automotive icon and the Mercedes-AMG G63 has been the most popular model for many years. This is both an obligation and an incentive for us. Our aim was therefore to make the enhanced performance even more tangible – both on and off-road. One of the ways we have achieved this is through improvements to the V8 engine and our new AMG suspension, which combines agility, driving dynamics and comfort. We are thus catering even more to our customers’ wishes. The new G63 is more AMG than ever before.” Michael Schiebe, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH and Head of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class & Mercedes-Maybach business units

Electrified – Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine

The new AMG G63 is powered by the proven Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine, producing 577 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. The hand-built engine is electrified with a 48-volt on-board electrical system and an integrated starter generator (ISG), which provides support at lower engine speeds with an additional 20 hp and 148 lb-ft. From a standstill, the AMG G63 accelerates to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds, on the way to an electronically limited 137 mph top speed.

Available AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension

New optional AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension with active, hydraulic roll stabilization and adaptive adjustable damping provides exceptionally agile handling and enhanced comfort. It is available as part of the optional AMG Offroad Package PRO. Active hydraulic elements replace the conventional mechanical torsion anti-roll bars. The adaptive shock absorbers are equipped with two hydraulic connections – one on the compression side of the damper and the other on the rebound side. Damper chambers on all four wheels are connected via hydraulic lines and the control valves of the adaptive dampers.

The interconnection of the four suspension struts and pressure regulation of the pump and control valves allow a very wide roll spring rate spread with reduced roll movements. During dynamic cornering, the hydraulics reduce the roll angle and therefore loss of camber. The resulting high camber stiffness and reduced body movement enable the AMG G63 to turn-in very precisely. The system also compensates for individual obstacles that would otherwise lead to rolling movements, which improves both ride comfort and handling.

The AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension also improves wheel articulation. This enables the wheels to maintain contact with the driving surface even when the vehicle is heavily articulated. This leads to a significant increase in traction, climbing ability and off-road comfort, as well as reduced strain on both the vehicle and driver.

Two additional off-road drive modes are available as part of the optional AMG Offroad Package PRO. “AMG Traction PRO” generates maximum traction in the “Rock” and “Sand” drive programs by means of wheel-selective braking torque control depending on the road surface. In addition, the degree of locking of the electronically controlled differential lock can be adjusted in stages depending on the situation. In order to activate AMG Traction PRO, drivers must first select the LOW RANGE off-road gear reduction and activate manual shifting of the transmission.

“AMG Active Balance Control,” the second additional off-road drive mode, supplements the functions of the AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension in all three off-road drive programs. This allows the roll stiffness of the vehicle to be adjusted from low to rigid depending on the road surface and driving situation. Drivers can choose from three different settings. While “LOW” provides a comfortable suspension setup, it is significantly stiffer in “MID” and very stiff in “HIGH”. This significantly improves the vehicle’s body control, contact with the driving surface as well as traction off-road.

AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with adaptive adjustable damping is fitted standard on the new AMG G63. This fully automatic, electronically controlled system continuously adjusts the damping at each wheel to the current driving situation and road conditions. This improves driving safety and ride comfort. The damping on each wheel is adjusted individually via separate valves for rebound and compression in each damper. Three distinct damper maps can be selected (“Comfort,” “Sport” or “Sport+”) with a noticeable differentiation between ride comfort and dynamic driving characteristics.

AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission

The AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission delights with very short shift times and an intermediate (double de-clutch) throttle function for an even more emotional dynamic driving experience. It allows for a broad range of characteristics depending on the selected drive program – from highly dynamic to virtually imperceptible gear changes.

The transmission combines efficiency and dynamics. Nine gears enable the engine to remain at optimum speeds. When necessary, it shifts down to a low gear in a very short time using multiple downshifts to utilize the engine’s full power. Shift characteristics are also adapted to the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs with unique calibrations.

AMG DYNAMIC SELECT: five on-road and three off-road drive programs

With the five AMG DYNAMIC SELECT programs for on-road use, “Slippery,” “Comfort,” “Sport,” “Sport+” and “Individual,” driving experiences range from efficient and comfortable to very sporty. Parameters such as the response of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering are specially tuned for each drive program. The three stages of the adaptive adjustable damping, “Comfort,” “Sport” and “Sport+,” can also be selected independently. The three off-road drive programs, “Sand,” “Trail” and “Rock,” are also available.

Unmistakable details for a distinctive interior and exterior design

Inside and out, unmistakable design elements give the all-new Mercedes-AMG G63 its unique appearance. MANUFAKTUR Hyper Blue Magno exterior paint is available exclusively for the top G-Class model. The front end is characterized by a new AMG-specific bumper with three vertical louvers in front of the air inlets, as well as stainless-steel inserts. Standard adaptive MULTIBEAM LED headlights illuminate the road according to the driving situation with 84 individually controllable high-performance LEDs. The taillights also feature LED technology.

The AMG crest is featured on the hood and in the exterior mirror projections for the first time, as well as the AMG fuel filler cap in silver chrome with design elements in black. Silver-painted brake calipers, perforated brake discs and new 20-inch AMG alloy wheels in five-twin-spoke design round off the exterior. Six different wheel designs in 20- to 22-inch sizes in up to three different finishes are available.

The optional AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber Package emphasizes the performance of the AMG G63. The spare wheel cover, bumper inserts and visual underride guard at the front and rear are finished in carbon fiber. The package also includes a dark chrome radiator grille, carbon design mirror housings and inserts in the exterior protective trim, spare wheel ring in black Magno/metallic, and darkened headlight housings and indicators at the front and rear.

Unique details throughout the interior underscore the dynamic character of the AMG G63. An AMG Performance steering wheel with twin-spoke design in Nappa leather with seamlessly integrated capacitive controls is fitted standard. The round AMG DRIVE UNIT steering wheel buttons with brilliant displays and intuitive operation can be used to control AMG-specific driving functions and all drive programs. AMG logos are highlighted on the steering wheel spokes, central display, door sill panels, floor mats and front seat backrests.
