Mercedes-AMG G 63 – Overview
The G-Class SUV from Mercedes-Benz is one the longest-produced vehicles in Daimler’s history, and was first introduced in 1979. Even with 40+ years of history, the large SUV has only recently entered its second generation in 2018, and was given the chassis number W464. The popularity of the SUV mimics the recent trend toward these tall vehicles, with the 400,000th unit delivered in December 2020, with the 300,000th delivered in 2017. That’s a lot of Gs in the span of 3 years.
Just like the rest of the prolific stable under Mercedes-Benz, the G-Class – sometimes fondly called the G-Wagon, which is shortened from Geländewagen – has also received the full AMG treatment. This latest Mercedes-AMG G 63 made it onto Malaysian shores in November 2018 with a price tag of RM1.5 million, and for 2021 the super-SUV has been given subtle updates to keep up with the ever-moving automotive landscape.
