Mercedes-Benz India launches its iconic performance off-roader the AMG G 63

New Delhi: India’s largest luxury car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz today further
bolstered its performance SUV portfolio, with the launch of the iconic performance offroader the new Mercedes-AMG G 63.With the launch of the new AMG G 63, the GClass 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.

Powered by a 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine that generates an astonishing 430 kW (585hp) of power, helps it attain 100 km/h from standstill in a mere 4.5 seconds. 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 bodyshell mounted on a strong ladder-type chassis. The new AMG G 63 was launched today by Mr. Michael Jopp, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India.

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. We have an exciting line-up for the upcoming festive season and our product innovations will
continue in the coming months.” he added.

AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission with shorter shift times

The AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission used in the new G 63 has a modelspecific software application to achieve very short shift times. The multiple downshift function allows more spontaneous bursts of speed, while the double-declutching function in “Sport” and “Sport Plus” transmission modes makes for an even more emotional driving experience.

Enhanced agility and traction: AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive
The standard-specification AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive features rearbiased torque distribution with a front/rear split of 40 to 60 percent. In the preceding model, the distribution was still a neutral 50:50. The differential locks now respond to the switches even more rapidly, as they are electromechanically actuated and fully networked. An LED and the central driver’s display indicate which lock is currently active.

Bodyshell: made for the toughest jobs The basis for the enormous off-road capabilities of the new AMG G 63 is provided by atorsionally rigid ladder-type frame of high-strength steel and a mounted body of composite construction. This design is considerably more robust and suitable for offroad operations than a unibody construction. The bodyshell consists of various grades of steel while the wings, bonnet and doors are made of aluminium.
