Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6x6

Have you ever felt that some vehicles try just too hard to be awesome. The Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6 might just fall into that category. But don’t let it find out you think that, or it’ll grind you into the desert sands like a tyrannical dung beetle.

Everything about the G 63 AMG 6×6 screams excess. But that should go down well with its intended clients, and judging by the official AMG photos – which show the vehicle tearing up the sand dunes of Dubai while camels look on with indifference – it’s pretty obvious who those clients are.

Powering the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6 is a 5.5 litre twin-turbocharged engine which puts out 544 horsepower and 560 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque. The power is channeled through an AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission to all six wheels. The drive system is derived from a 6×6 version which was developed by Mercedes-Benz for the Australian army.


Clearly, with such a armagedon-ready drivetrain the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6 has pretty impressive off-road performance. It’s ludicrously high ride height allows it to traverse water over 40 inches (1 metre) deep without any problems, while its 37-inch tires allow it to comfortably crawl over rocks which would cripple your average 4×4.

The Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6 isn’t just about rough-and-tough off-roading though. Climb inside and you’ll find soft leather upholstery, four electrically-adjustable heated and ventilated thrones, and a comprehensive infotainment system with large multimedia displays. Even the load bay is built to impress. It’s lined with bamboo and protected by a four-point chrome-plated roll bar.

In the words of Stewie Griffin; “It’s good to have land”.

    I’m wondering if this is the next generation of humvees, and about this car, does it have an automatic driving system like the jeep terramax.it may sound crazy but this car is for the army, and the terramax uses this automatic to send supplies for the army without getting casualties but I bet this car is better than the jeep terramax
