Engine Specs

The 2019 AMG® G 63 sports a handcrafted AMG® 4.0L V8 biturbo engine that replaces the previous 5.5L V8 biturbo engine. The 4.0L V8 delivers an exhilarating 577 horsepower and a maximum torque of 627 lb-ft from 2,500 and 3,500 rpm. The low rev range makes accelerating in the G 63 feel effortless. The eight-cylinder engine delivers muscular power at all engine speed ranges while also achieving maximum efficiency for low fuel consumption and emissions.

Top Speed & 0-60 Time

Thanks to the engine’s smart design and performance-enhancing features, the iconic off-road SUV sprints from 0-60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds–which is 0.9 seconds faster than the previous model. The AMG® G 63 boasts an incredible maximum speed of 137 MPH or 149 MPH with the AMG® Driver’s Package.

AMG® Performance 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive

The 2019 AMG® G 63 comes standard with AMG® Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. The system features rear-biased torque distribution with a 40-60% front/rear split, a change from the preceding model’s 50:50 distribution, ensuring greater agility and improved traction during acceleration. The system’s off-road reduction gear has also been further developed with a transfer case reduction ratio of 2.93:1, which is higher than the preceding model’s 2.1:1 ratio. This change to the reduction gear improves the G 63’s off-road abilities, particularly with navigating extreme hill gradients.
