The Mercedes-AMG G 63, sometimes called G-Wagon (short for Geländewagen, “terrain vehicle”), is a high-performance four-wheel drive SUV manufactured by Magna Steyr (formerly Steyr-Daimler-Puch) in Austria and sold by Mercedes-Benz. It is based on Mercedes-Benz G-Class which was originally developed as a military off-roader, later more luxurious models were added to the line. In certain markets, it has been sold under the Puch name as Puch G. It is one of the longest-produced vehicles in Daimler’s history, with a span of 42 years. Only the Unimog surpasses it. The second generation G 63 (W463) was launched on 13 February 2018. The Mercedes-AMG G 63 4Matic 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 the new interior with optimal widescreen cockpit. The basis for the hallmark AMG Driving Performance both on and off metalled roads is provided by the V8 biturbo engine, the rear-biased all-wheel drive (40:60) with three differential locks, the extremely fast-shifting automatic transmission, the double wishbone independent front suspension and the adaptive adjustable damping. The reinterpretation of the unmistakable design creates strong highlights with the AMG-specific radiator grille, flared wheel arches and striking side pipes on the exhaust system.
