There’s only one SUV that is undisputed when it comes to off-roading capabilities, the G63 AMG 6×6, probably Mercedes’ wildest car. This car completely redefined what an SUV meant for off-roading. And as you can imagine, it was very exclusive. The price of the Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6 was quite high, and the used price of the car keeps on increasing.
One will think that a car like this will have a very rough interior, but the G64 AMG 6×6 boasts a comfortable luxurious interior that was unmatched at the time.
Bear in mind that we talked a lot in the past here, the reason for this is that this car is not new, it came out in 2013, and it stopped production in 2015. Mercedes only produced 100 units, 50 for the European market and 50 for the Middle Eastern market.
If you manage to be lucky enough to see one in the US, it is because the car was imported.
The G63 AMG 6×6 specs and features
Having an AMG badge means that the car will be powerful, and this SUV is not an exception since it’s powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 536 hp and 560 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque.
The car is huge. Its dimensions simply show that, with 231 inches long (5.87 m), 82.7 inches wide (2.1 m), 90.6 inches tall (2.3 m), and 18.1 inches ground clearance (460 mm), the G 6×6 size is the main reason why its presence is so imposing.
As you can imagine, a car with a size like that would be accompanied by a weight that beats some of the heaviest trucks in the market, 8488 lbs (3,85 tons).
In terms of features, this car is equipped with so much innovative technology that it makes off-roading as easy as possible. The car comes with a six-wheel drive, portal axles, a locking differential, and a hydraulic suspension system.
The interior of this car is nothing that you would expect when seeing the outside, it looks sophisticated and luxurious, it has four ventilated and heated seats, “designo” leather upholstery with contrasting stitching, a leather-covered dashboard and door panels, the roof liner and the pillars come in Alcanta and AMG carbon fiber trim.
Bear in mind that this is a 2013 Mercedes, so the interior might look a bit aged compared with what we are getting today.
How much does it cost? the Price of the Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6
When the car came out in 2013 Mercedes was priced in Europe at around 400,000€ ($400,000), as a limited model it was clear that once all units would get sold the value of the car would start rising.
And of course, it did. One unit that was imported into the US was listed for a whopping $1.69 M, this car only had 3,797 miles (6,110 km), and it was equipped with every single option that was available at the time.
In 2021, a 217 miles (340 km) G63 AMG 6×6 2015 model year show vehicle was listed in Germany for €872,000 ($872,000), doubling more than its initial price in 6 years.
There’s no doubt that the G63 AMG 6×6 was a great investment for those that managed to grab it at MSRP price, however, even if you pay more right now for one it is still expected to continue rising in price.
Would there be a new Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6? 2022, 2023, or 2024 version?
Being realistic, the short answer is very unlikely. With new emissions regulations and how much the world changed since 2013, it’s clear that if a car like that was released today it would raise a lot of criticism. At least it would likely not be sold in the US and Europe.
However, if the car came as a hybrid or as an electric vehicle things could be different, look at the new Hummer EV SUV, a huge car, not as big as the G63 6×6, but if it wouldn’t be an EV we are sure that it would’ve gotten a lot of criticism.
In the Middle East, things are different, a vehicle like the Mercedes G63 6×6 makes more sense since the sand terrains require great off-roading capabilities, and some roads are designed to suit big vehicles.
But the question is, would Mercedes build a new gen of this vehicle just for one market?
Well, we doubt it, but this car easily sold every single unit when it came out, and the desire for it is still high, we are sure that if Mercedes would release right now a new version they could easily sell again a 100 units in less than 3 years.
