2022 Brabus Crawler

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.

2023 Mercedes-AMG G63

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.

2022 Mercedes EQG Concept

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.

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.

Mercedes-Benz EQC 4x4²

Mercedes-Benz EQC 4x4²

This is the first electric model, and the third overall to be inducted into the 4x4² series

Not too long ago, the Mercedes G-Class 4x4² was spotted undergoing high-altitude testing in the Alps, thus confirming the return of the alter-ego version of the luxurious off-roader.

While we were expecting to hear more about it, Mercedes decided to divert our attention from it by introducing a 4×4² concept version of its all-electric SUV, the EQC. To put it simply the EQC 4×4² is the off-road version of the standard EQC. Do we need something like this at a time when Mercedes is still trying to find its feet in the electric segment?

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!

2017 Mercedes-AMG G63 RS 850 by Posaidon

There’s nothing fancy about this program, but it sure as heck is effective

The Mercedes-AMG G 63 may look like a car that has little care for the world of aftermarket tuning, but that couldn’t be further away from the truth. The hulking SUV has actually been a favorite subject among aftermarket tuners, and we see that on full display with this new tuning program from Poseidon.

The program is called the G 63 RS 850, and you don’t need to be a mathematician to know that the “850” in the program’s name refers to the kind of power the AMG G 63 now has at its disposal. The extra grunt is complemented by a series of exterior and interior upgrades, all of which combine to create a tuning kit that establishes a more flamboyant personality out of Mercedes-AMG’s resident mastodon. The RS 850 kit may not be the first program for the AMG G 63 to dip into this kind of tuning upgrade, but rest assured, this upgrade brings a lot more to the table than what we’ve seen in the past. Consider this program, then, a top-of-the-line choice for owners of the AMG G 63. Whatever you may want to do to your premium, off-roading ride, there’s a good chance that Poseidon has the upgrade that’ll leave a smile on your face.

2016 Mercedes-AMG G63 G700 Widestar By Brabus

2016 Mercedes-AMG G63 G700 Widestar By Brabus

German tuner gets fancy with Mercedes-AMG’s one-true off-road warrior

Subtlety has never been one of Brabus’ strong suits so it goes without saying that this bright-as-day creation didn’t fall too far out of the German company’s tuning tree. At its core, this is a Mercedes-AMG G63, the Silver Arrows’ resident off-road marauder. But just its image is that of a rugged performance machine, Brabus has created a tuning program that provides a slash of vibrant personality into the G63. As a result, it doesn’t look as imposing as it once was. Or does it?

There are a number of things about this particular kit, dubbed the G700 Widestar, that’s worth keeping an eye on. It has modifications on both the exterior and interior. It has a new set of fancy wheels. It also has sizable engine upgrade, which has and will always be the real highlights of any Brabus tuning program. The modifications may look ostentatious on the surface, but that’s only one way to describe the G700 Widestar program. You can also call it heavy on extra power or if you’re really stretching for words to describe it, maybe you can even call it heavy-handed and brutish, mixed in with a certain flamboyant flair that the standard AMG G63 understandably lacks.

Whatever the case may be, what’s clear is that Brabus’ new kit for the AMG G63 fits into its wheelhouse. It won’t be Brabus without the attention to detail that comes with building a kit like this one. Sure, black suits the G63 perfectly, but like most of its past programs for other Mercedes models, Brabus has found a way to give the hulking brute of an SUV the personality to match its unyielding ferocity.
