The Mercedes-Benz G-Class started life as a military off-roader and was developed into a civilian vehicle after a bit of prodding by the Shah of Iran. The first civilian variants entered the market in 1979 and, in true Mercedes-Benz fashion, started getting luxurious. By 1981, air conditioning and automatic transmissions were offered. AMG also got their hands on the G-Class and endowed it with more power, poise, and capability, as is their style. The G-Class nameplate continues to this day, and we've got a 2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 with just 8,800 miles on the clock. Looking for an off-roader with over 500 horsepower, luxury to rival an S-Class, and genuine off-road capability? Step this way.
Despite looking nearly identical to the 1979 G-Class in many ways, the second generation, which debuted in 2018, shares just three parts with its forefathers. That's quite a neat trick that Mercedes-Benz has pulled off. You can see that this 2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 doesn't try to disguise its origins with curves and slippery design. The Polar White exterior and contrasting matte black 21-inch AMG twin five-spoke alloy wheels are enough to create a statement wherever you go. AMG red-painted brake calipers add a splash of color to this monochrome palette. The interior is another surprise, as it's luxurious enough to rival an S-Class. Set aside the high-set seating position or need to climb into the cabin, and you'll find the same quality Mercedes-Benz leather, wood, and metal trim as on the automaker's flagship cars. We are told that this 2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 enjoys a Black Exclusive Nappa leather interior. You've got the latest tech to enjoy, including a digital instrument cluster, Mercedes-Benz MBUX infotainment system, Burmester surround sound system, dual-zone climate control, electrically adjustable front seats with memory, multifunction steering wheel with touch control pads, and much more. One thing you can't ignore are three prominent switches on the center console to actuate the front, center, and rear differentials. That's the hallmark of a true off-roader.
This 2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 is powered by the automaker's 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that sends 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels via an AMG Speedshift 9-speed automatic transmission. We also did mention the locking differentials for off-road prowess, meaning that you've only got to swap on some meatier rubber and enjoy the trails. On-road performance is equally stunning, taking under 5 seconds to get to sixty from rest and touching 149mph at the top end.
