“Sensual Purity” Redesign Means The G’s Spirit Is Still Baked In

For the first time since its introduction 40 years ago, Mercedes has given the G-Class a complete makeover. But unlike other “makeovers” that plaster a new body onto an existing chassis, Mercedes went in the opposite direction.

The all-new 2019 G-Class retains its iconic looks while receiving a new, longer frame; independent front suspension; and an interior befitting the Mercedes S-Class sedan. And yet despite its modernization, the G stays true to its off-road roots. It comes with a full-time 4WD system, three locking differentials, skid plates, and proper ground clearance. Among the updates is a new G-Mode that further improves the SUV’s go-anywhere capability with electronic aids.

But let’s be honest – 99 percent of G-Class owners will never trek over anything more challenging than wet grass or a snowy road. That’s why Mercedes injected high levels of luxury into the new model. The wheelbase is two inches longer and 4.7 inches wider for a more planted on-road feel and more interior room. The G will undoubtedly be a smash hit around the world, even with its starting price of €107,040 in Germany – roughly $130,900 U.S. dollars.

2022 Brabus 900 XLP "One Of Ten" - An AMG G63 The Pushes the Boundaries of Sanity

2022 Brabus 900 XLP "One Of Ten" - An AMG G63 The Pushes the Boundaries of Sanity

If you want to spend almost $700,000 for a truck, this super-custom AMG G63 is probably for you!

If the XLP name sounds familiar to you it is because just recently Brabus announced two 800 Adventure XLP packages: one Superblack and one Superwhite. Both are based on the G63 AMG, both deliver 800 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque, and both are priced at way over €700,000.

Now the XLP name is back as part of a new 900 XLP "One of ten" package, still based on the G63 AMG, but this time the output goes up to an even more impressive 900 horsepower!

2022 Mansory Gronos EVO S P900

900 horsepower and a sporty look seems like the perfect recipe for the G63

Mansory has a very long history of updating the Mercedes-AMG G63. Just recently, the tuner unveiled two special editions built for the Chinese and the UAE markets. And, because the Middle East is such a big fan of big, luxury, flashy cars, Mansory announced a new special edition built exclusively for them.

If the name sounds familiar - Gronos EVO S P900 - it is because the tuner offered a car with a similar name back in 2021.

2022 Brabus Crawler

This AMG G63-based Brabus creation is the perfect vehicle for summer fun!

Summer is just around the corner and all we can think about is outdoor fun. The problem is that there are not many fun buggies out there. The good news is that, like usual, Brabus has our back: the tuner has come up with a hardcore buggy based on the Mercedes-AMG G63.

Limited to only 15 examples, the new Brabus Crawler is priced at €749,000 (almost $800,000 at the current exchange rates). Brabus will build five copies in 2022, five in 2023, and the final five in 2024. Unfortunately, the buggy is not street legal.

Tug-of-War: Does The AMG G63 Come Out On Top, Or Does It Succumb To The BMW X7 And iX?

Tug-of-War: Does The AMG G63 Come Out On Top, Or Does It Succumb To The BMW X7 And iX?

Watch the BMW X7, the iX, and the AMG G63 engage in a few rounds of tug-of-war

The ‘Carwow’ team, spearheaded by Mat Watson, staged a tug-of-war between three SUVs that belong to different segments. One is a new EV, the other, its sibling, a luxurious family SUV, and the final one, an iconic off-roader. We are talking about the BMW iX, the BMW X7, and the Mercedes-AMG G63. Since this is a tug-of-war, you’d expect the G63 to be the winner, since it comes with a lot of tech and equipment that has to do with traction and stability. But, is that really the case?

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Facelift Looks Amazing In The Sunset

It still hides all the exterior details very well

Mercedes launched the current generation G-Class back in 2018 and now, four years later, the company is about to also offer a facelift for it. Prototypes of the standard G-Class facelift, the AMG G63 and even the the G4×4² have been caught testing many times before, but the ones caught testing recently are a little bit more special. Our spy photographers managed to get some pictures of the facelift G-Class during a beautiful sunset, and we have to admit: the red and orange landscape makes the SUV look even better, despite the camouflage!

Do you remember the 800 Adventure XLP Superblack Brabus launched back in January 2022? It was a €725,900 version of the €575,630 800 Adventure XLP truck launched at the 2022 Geneva Motor Show.

And, if you thought things can’t get more expensive than this, now Brabus announced the 800 Adventure XLP Superwhite. As its name suggests, it is a whiter version of the previous XLP truck, but priced at €750,743.

2022 Mercedes-AMG G 63 "Edition 55"

2022 Mercedes-AMG G 63 "Edition 55"

This special edition celebrates AMG’s 55 anniversary

AMG was founded as a racing engine forge in 1967 by former Mercedes-Benz’s engineers Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher. Over the years, AMG enjoyed huge success, and in 1993 it became the high-profile purveyor of modified Mercedes-Benz cars.

The G-Class has enjoyed a unique position in the AMG portfolio for a long time, so, it should come as no surprise that one of the special editions launched to celebrate AMG’s 55 anniversary is based on the AMG G63.

It will be available for order starting now until October 2022, and AMG promises more surprises on the way.

The Latest Images Of The 2022 Mercedes-AMG G4×4² Have Sent Us Into A Tizzy!

The Latest Images Of The 2022 Mercedes-AMG G4×4² Have Sent Us Into A Tizzy!

The next-gen AMG G4×4² has been spotted and it looks ready to take on the beaten paths

The Mercedes-AMG G4×4² has been anticipated for a very long time now. The Mercedes-Benz G4×4² came out many years back, but this has been due. For the uninitiated, it is an off-road-oriented version of the legendary G-wagon. In short, it lies somewhere between the standard G-wagon and the 6x6 model. It has been spotted many times in the past, but the beast has been spied in its 2022 avatar with minimum skin.

Updated 02/24/2022; A new Mercedes-AMG G4×4² prototype was sent out for testing around the the Arctic Circle. Unlike the previous prototypes, the new one wears a cool red paint and has the grille very well camouflaged, meaning that it is indeed wearing the updated grille we heard so many rumors about.

Changes should be minimal, but they will keep the G63 AMG fresh

The second generation G-Class was launched in 2018. If we were to look back at the first generation which was produced between 1990 and 2018, we do not expect the current G-Class to be retired anytime soon. It is, however, on the point to receive a facelift version.

Back in January, our spy photographers caught the first prototype of the standard G-Class out for some testing, and earlier this month, we even caught the G4×4². Today, it is time for the AMG version to shine under the spotlight.

Is Mercedes Finally Bringing a Baby G-Class?

Is Mercedes Finally Bringing a Baby G-Class?

This is just a mule, but we have hope for a baby G-Class to happen

Back in July 2021, it was rumored that Mercedes will be adding a new sub-brand into its division. Up until now, it only had AMG and Maybach divisions, but rumors suggest there could also be a G-Class division responsible for attacking the off-road market. Of course, these rumors left a lot for interpretation, including the possibility of having an electric G-Class in the future. It was even previewed by the EQG Concept.

Well, we do not know when an electric G-Class will arrive, but it looks like a baby G-Class is finally on its way. Is Mercedes taking inspiration from Lamborghini and coming up with off-road versions of its low-slung cars?

We've Finally Spotted a Prototype of the 2023 Mercedes G-Class

We’ve Finally Spotted a Prototype of the 2023 Mercedes G-Class

What is this Mercedes G-Class hiding on the inside, though?

The Mercedes G-Class is due for an update, and it’s set to arrive for the 2023 model year. We expected to see at least one prototype, but up until now, it’s been hiding very well. All that has changed, though, and this prototype is sporting some changes – some so important the driver was very careful about hiding them.

To start, we can spot a new front end with a revised grille. There’s a new fascia in the rear as well, however, there’s not much else to say about the exterior thanks to the camo. Oddly enough, the headlights and taillights are identical to those of the current model, which means Mercedes engineers aren’t exactly done with the development process quite yet. Interestingly, however, there are some significant changes happening inside, but we weren’t able to see them because the driver was careful to cover them up.

The facelifted Mercedes G-Class is expected to arrive for the 2023 model year, so the production model should be revealed sometime before fall of 2022.

2022 Brabus 800 Adventure XLP Superblack

2022 Brabus 800 Adventure XLP Superblack

It makes the G63 AMG very black!

At the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, Brabus announced the 800 Adventure XLP - a very cool truck based on the Mercedes-AMG G63. We loved the work the tuner has done with the project, but we were shocked when we heard the price: €575,630 (or about $631,055 when it was launched).

Now, Brabus came up with a solution to make the Adventure XLP even more expensive. By about €150,000, to be more specific, for a car that this time is not even new - it comes with a mileage of 1,000 km (621 miles). The new package is called Brabus 800 Adventure XLP Superblack and, as the name suggesst, it is about giving the original car a darker, meaner look.

CarWow’s drag races are fun and all, but seeing some of the hottest SUVs, currently on sale, put through a series of off-road challenges is not to be missed.

Mansory’s Second Special Edition For UAE Is Too Wild To Be True

Needless to say, the G63 AMG has endless tuning capabilities!

If you were impressed by Mansory’s first creation for the United Arab of Emirates (UAE), the second one will simply blow your mind!

Mansory is creating a series of special editions as part of "The Year of the 50th" celebration. Just as a short reminder, UAE turned 50 years old in 2021 and will celebrate the event with a series of festivities happening from April 6, 2021, to March 31, 2022.

While the tuner’s first creation was based on the Rolls Royce Cullinan, this time it was Mercedes-AMG G63’s turn to get under the spot light.

Is The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 by Brabus Really Worth $1.1 Million?

This is more than double the price of a new unit back in 2014

The G-Class is one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz models - there is no doubt about that. And for sure Brabus does the best work when it comes to updating Mercedes models. Launched back in 2013, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 by Brabus made quite a sensation. But is it sensational enough for someone to actually think it is worth $1.1 million? At launch, it was priced from $430,000, so let that sink in.

The G-Class name returns to a brutal beast of a Mil-Spec off-roader that has a go-anywhere attitude

Mercedes-Benz unveiled a new version of its legendary G-Class SUV. The W464 is specifically designed for military use and security forces. Customers and the press were given a preview of the SUV’s capabilities at the G-Class Experience Center in Graz, Austria which is where Magna Steyr builds the famed off-roader.

Mercedes unveiled the EQG Concept, the near-production electric alter-ego of the G-Class SUV, at the 2021 IAA Show and it looks swell

Mercedes went on an electrification spree at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, Germany. One of the cars unveiled here was the EQG, the EQ electric equivalent of the legendary G-Class SUV, or more popularly known as the G-Wagen. The off-roader is one of the most iconic models ever built and is still going strong despite its boxy and old-school demeanor. In fact, that is the one thing that’s still attracting purists.

The company showcased the EQG Concept that follows a similar path, but with a lot of new tech. This is said to be a near-production concept, so we can expect the real deal to be revealed by next year, perhaps.

With The New Off-Road Trim, Mercedes G-Wagon Returns To Its Military Roots

With The New Off-Road Trim, Mercedes G-Wagon Returns To Its Military Roots

The Mercedes G-Wagon Professional Line is not your typical, flashy G-Wagon, as It doesn’t mind getting dirty

The Mercedes G-Wagon is one of Mercedes’ signature vehicles. None of the other German premium carmakers have an analog to it. For decades the Mercedes G-Wagon has been every rich person’s favorite way of giving the middle finger to all “plebians mopping around in a Corolla or an Elantra”. The boxy SUV has been interpreted by many tuners, such as BRABUS, MANSORY, and others, giving it an aggressive design, and making it appealing to people like celebrities and drug dealers.

However, the boxy SUV has much humbler beginnings, as it was originally developed as a military vehicle. It seems Mercedes remembered that and decided to give us a G-Wagon that doesn’t mind getting dirty.

AMG, Maybach, and the G-Class will soon be positioned under a new business group, and it could be a big deal

Mercedes, as a company in general, has been on a roll lately – which is especially true when you look at its electrification efforts. The company now has the Mercedes EQA, EQB, EQC, and the EQS luxury saloon that will serve as a luxury EV halo car. The new EQ brand is obviously going very well, but what about other brands like AMG and Maybach? And, does the G-Class have a future considering the sudden shift to electrification? Well, as it turns out, Daimler – the parent company of Mercedes (and by relation, Maybach) – has huge plans, and this could change everything.

Battle of the Mercedes-AMG SUVs: Watch The V-12 G65 Take On The V-8 G63 On A Drag Strip

We finally get to see the V-8 AMG G63 take on the V-12 G65 in straight-line races

The Mercedes-AMG G63 is quite popular, but the G65, not so much. The automaker discontinued it in 2018, but offered 65 examples as part of the farewell ‘Final Edition’ before drawing the curtains on it. The folks at ArabGT managed to lay their hands on one of these 65 examples and pit it against the G63 Edition 1. Well, this is probably one battle that every G-Class enthusiast has always wanted. Do you think the G65, with its mighty 12-pot mill, can beat the eight-cylinder G63?

The G63 Rocket Edition by Brabus comes with carbon fiber components, almost 900 horses under the hood, sub-four-second 0-60 mph time, and costs over $500,000

Brabus products are some of the most expensive aftermarket builds that you can buy today. If you can get anything south of half-a-million dollars, then it’s a bargain. The company specializes in Mercedes products and has created tens of iterations of its popular models in the past. But, one product that Brabus can’t get enough of is the G-Class. In all fairness, no one can get enough of it. So, can’t really blame Brabus here.

Anyway, the German tuner has come up with yet another G63 build, called the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition. It comes with an exclusive exterior shade, carbon fiber components on the exterior, and power boosts that make this boxy SUV sprint to 62 mph in under four seconds. How about that!

2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 "Gronos 2021" by Mansory

2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 "Gronos 2021" by Mansory

The Gronos comes with oodles of carbon fiber and performance enhancements that makes it as quick as a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

If ‘Mansory’ was an actual word, it would be defined as ‘quirky, offbeat, and outlandish’. That is exactly what all the builds by the German tuner are. Despite that, it is one of the most prestigious tuners in the world today. Mansory has worked on numerous exotic models and has given it a twist that will make you rip your eyes out. Yet, we enthusiasts keep coming back for more. Some sorcery this is.

Anyway, the company has rolled out another rendition of its favorite vehicle, the Mercedes-AMG G63, called the Gronos 2021. This is the tuner’s second stint with the moniker, the first one coming in 2013. The Gronos 2021 is as eccentric, unorthodox, and freakish as you’d expect a Mansory to beat. But, it’s all forgiven because it makes a buttload of power more than the standard AMG G63.

1990 Mercedes 250GD Wolf by Expedition Motor Company

The aftermarket company has restored this ex-military vehicle with new glam, but the same engine and transmission

The G-Wagen started life being a military truck and was later offered to us civilians as a hardcore off-roader that was matched by vehicles like the Land Rover and the Land Cruiser. The G-Wagen that we know today is fast and powerful, but back in its early days, it was brute and tough. Expedition Motor Company got hold of a 1990 250GD and restored it to perfection. As the company puts it, this is the story of how a rough ex-military war machine becomes a work of art.

German aftermarket company Lumma has come up with a build for another luxurious SUV. The company has given radical twists to many vehicles in the past, including multiple iterations of the Audi Q8. This time, it’s the Mercedes G-Class that goes under the knife.

The German firm is known to design really wild creations, pretty much like Mansory, but this one – according to Lumma’s reputation – is a rather subdued customization. The conversion kit comes with a custom body kit and huge wheels amongst other things.

Chasing Whales: BMW X7 M50i Drag Races Mercedes-AMG G 63

Is the less powerful BMW X7 M50i quicker than the Mercedes-AMG G 63?

A few years ago drag racing used to be a thing for muscle cars and supercars, as was development at the Nurburgring. Nowadays, most vehicles, including performance SUVs, are being tested on race tracks before production starts, and we can also see them running quarter-mile races.

Are drag races relevant for a massive, full-size SUV? Not really. But people still do it, simply because it’s fun. If you ever wondered how the Mercedes-AMG G 63 and the BMW X7 M50i compare in straight-line racing, the folks over at Track Day just ran a test.

2021 Mercedes-Benz G-Class 4X4

The big, bulky alter-ego of the Mercedes G-Class that created a ruckus few years back, was spotted recently, thus indicating a comeback

The Mercedes G-Class is arguably one of the best off-roaders to have graced our planet. Over the years, the company has equipped it with a premium interior and an exorbitant price tag, but it is still regarded as a hardcore off-roader and has a strong footing in the segment despite heavy competition. To further cement this perception, Mercedes created a hardcore version of the already-competent G-Class called the G-Class 4x4. The previous model’s production ended in 2017, but it looks like the monster is back.

The new G-Class 4x4 was spied undergoing high-altitude testing in the Alps and it looked a lot bulkier and monstrous than its normal self – especially the wheel arches – thus reigniting the news of the 4x4 making a comeback. Are we excited? Hell yeah!

Watch A Mercedes-AMG G63 Take On The Lamborghini Urus In A Drag Race

To be fair, the G63 is tuned to make over 700 horses

Mercedes-AMG G63 is a legend in itself. The boxy, old-school design still appeals to a lot of people. It is mechanically strong and has a powerful mill as well. There’s also the Lamborghini Urus, one of the fastest SUVs in the world and arguably the automaker’s breadwinner in the present day.

So, what happens when you put the two against each other in a drag race? Well, the folks at Throttle House decided to do that. The Urus has the edge in this case, but there’s a catch. The Mercedes-AMG G63 makes over 700 horses on the wheels; about 10-percent more than the Urus. Will that skew the odds in the G63’s favor?

2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 Sports Line Black Bison Edition by Wald International

The aftermarket company has made only cosmetic changes to the boxy SUV

Wald International is known for its bold and aggressive builds. The Japanese tuner has worked on many popular models in the past, such as the Rolls-Royce Phantom, Porsche Cayenne, and even the little Suzuki Jimny.

This time around, it has laid its hands on the legendary Mercedes-AMG G 63 and named it the Sports Line Black Bison Edition. It is based on the model sold from 2016 to 2018.

Watch an Older AMG G63 Prove Its Off-Road Dominance Against a VW Touareg and Lexus LX

The boxy SUV is finally seen in its comfort zone

The Mercedes-AMG G63 is an icon in itself. Although it is one of the toughest SUVs both on paper and in real-world conditions, there aren’t a lot of videos that show the G63’s true potential. The SUV is a complete package but being an expensive and rather unique ride, you can see it either club hopping or doing urban commutes. However, here’s a video showing two G63s doing what they were born to do – playing off the roads.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is the second most long-serving car in Daimler’s portfolio, outranked only by the tougher-than-a-tardigrade Unimog. For that reason alone, we believe that the X-Class pickup truck should have been based on the Geländewagen in the first place. Sadly, Mercedes-Benz went asking for help from Nissan.
