Snorts and Roars with Plenty of Power

 

AMG’s signature growling beast exhaust note is not absent on the G, and suits its lightning-quick nature. Jamming the pedal to the floor emits a roar akin to an angry bear, and the acceleration that follows feels closer to a Shelby GT500 than a military truck as it reaches 60 mph in 5.3 seconds.

Fuel mileage suffers greatly, with an already unattainable 12 mpg in the city and 14 mpg on the highway, but the of fun had by hurtling this big brick down the road at break-neck speeds is worth it, helping you to forget the large investment you are putting into the gas tank. Straight line power is where the G63 lives.
