Mercedes-Benz has launched the second generation of their G-Class 4×4 Squared, and it’s hotter than ever! The previous version was offered in a more standard G 500 guise, but the new version will be offered in the AMG G 63 guise. This high-riding beast is equipped with massive ground clearance and portal axles at all four corners, along with other off-road-related upgrades.

AMG G 63

While the new AMG G 63 4X4 Squared is less off-road capable than the previous-gen model, it has been designed to be more comfortable and usable on the road, and also to be closer to the regular G 63. Despite this, it’s still one of the most capable off-roaders around.

The new SUV has a 45-degree approach angle and a ground clearance of 350.5mm, slightly less than its predecessor’s 51.8-degree approach angle and 410mm ground clearance. However, it still offers a water-fording depth of around 909mm, making it a force to be reckoned with off-road.

The suspension on the new G 63 4X4 Squared is also different, with the standard SUV’s independent front suspension set-up replacing the solid front axle layout of the previous-gen model. The 22-inch alloy wheels with massive tires add to its monster-truck looks, and the wider fenders with carbon fiber wheel arch extensions give it an aggressive appearance.

Under the hood, the G 63 4X4 Squared comes with the familiar AMG 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces a whopping 585hp, 163hp more than the outgoing G 500 4X4 Squared. The new SUV features full-time four-wheel drive and is expected to have lockable differentials, among other off-road features.

The SUV is well-equipped with luxury options, including Nappa leather and ambient lighting, just like the standard G 63. The digital rearview mirror can adjust for the big spare wheel and raised ride height, and the carbon fiber-framed LED light bar on the roof and carbon fiber-finished spare tire carrier add to its luxurious yet rugged look.

Mercedes-AMG has offered a wood finish on the cargo area floor of this SUV. The G Wagen also had the G 63 6×6 and the Maybach G 650 Landaulet as its raised versions. The key rival to the all-new AMG G 63 4X4 Squared will be the upcoming Land Rover Defender SVX. Stay tuned for more details!
