The G Wagen is an icon. To make it a monster, AMG cranks everything up to the max. A 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo puts 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque on tap, propelling the slab-sided AMG G63 from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
That’s fast, when you’re in something with the sort of off-roading credentials that the G Class arrives with. Trick locking differentials, a low range gearbox, and the sort of suspension articulation that could make a Jeep weep add up to serious possibilities off the asphalt. Just be sure to swap out the 22-inch AMG wheels first, lest you scuff the $4,450 upgrade.
Inside, there’s tech borrowed from Mercedes’ passenger cars. That means twin 12.3-inch digital displays, a Burmester audio system, color ambient lighting, heated seats front and rear, and tri-zone climate control. Throw in options, and you’re not far off $200k, though the starting price is under $157k.
