The engine lineup features fully electrified options, including a 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine for the G500 (replacing the M176 4.0-litre V8) and the AMG M177 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine for the Mercedes-AMG G63.

Both variants offer increased performance and reduced fuel consumption, aided by integrated starter-generators (ISG) and 48-volt systems that provides an additional 20 PS of output and 200 Nm of torque for brief periods.

The G500’s 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine with twin turbochargers makes 449 PS and 560 Nm, while the G63 delivers 585 PS and 850 Nm. Both use a 9-speed automatic transmission.
