The Mercedes G63 AMG is the physical manifestation of power and control rolled into a single vehicle. Its AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine comes with a 7-speed automatic gearbox. The power gives the auto the capability to produce up to 400 KW with a maximum torque reaching 760 NM. Such power enables it to build up acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in only a span of 5.4 seconds. Its top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h.
The Mercedes G63 AMG is also equipped with AMG sports chassis that carries specially-made coil springs. Add to that a 2850 mm wheelbase plus 9.5 J x 20 wheels with offsets measuring 50 mm and matching 275/50 R 20 113W RF high traction tires and you are just about ready to conquer even harsh terrains.
That means it’s not just good for carrying Kim Kardashian’s groceries and for crashing into a parked Nissan Sentra.
This video titled “First Tracks” taken in the snowy skiing range of Stowe Mountain Resort shows how far the Mercedes G63 can go:
What keeps the engine of the Mercedes G63 operational even in harsh weather conditions like the snowy climate seen in the video and in the arid regions of the hot sandy deserts is its balanced lubrication coupled with air-to-water intercooler, two low temperature coolers mounted in its front, and powerful electric suction fan that keeps the engine’s temperature stable in all weather conditions.
Currently, the 2014 Mercedes G63 AMG is valued around $136,625 in the US according to Edmunds.
