Pricing has just been announced on the Mercedes-AMG G63. The distinctive shape and stance of the infamous G-Wagen has changed very little in almost 40 years of production, however for the new G-Wagen, it’s just about everything else that has secured an update.
With the Manufacturers Recommended List Price (MRLP) starting at $247,700, production is slated to begin in June 2018, with deliveries expected to begin in the third quarter of 2018; subject to the G’s popularity.
Options can be had in the form of a “Night Package” which includes tinted indicator lenses, black exterior door mirror housings, trim elements in the bumpers as well as 22″ AMG multi-spoke wheels with a silver flange. The ‘Night Package’ includes only exterior livery and will set punters back an extra $5,900 MRLP on top of the price of the G63.
There is also the “Edition 1″ options pack, that includes all of the above but with red trim on the door mirrors and black 22” wheels with a red flange, and a rather expansive interior upgrade. This includes Nappa leather seats in red/black, with diamond stitching, plus multi-contour adjustment for the front seats with massage and climatisation. Air-vents also get a silver shadow finish and metal AMG badges are embedded in the front seat back-rests. The steering wheel is an AMG performance wheel in Nappa leather with red stitching and a red 12 o’clock marker. The interior trim is also finished in red-pepper carbon fibre. The “Edition 1” upgrade will add $19,500 to the cost of the Mercedes-AMG G63.
Power across the range is supplied by a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8, pushing out a solid 430kW & 850 Nm of torque, up from the previous 5.5 litre V8’s 420kW/760Nm. The new G63 also includes a full 15 speaker sound system, eight lighting schemes inside the 4X4, an AMG sports exhaust as well as Keyless-Go starting function.
