Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 arrives as a six-wheel luxury SUV
The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 comes in as quite an amazing new SUV in the market, armed with a 6×6 powered drive, thanks to the six-wheel build. Such machines have often made military and commercial successes but the commercial version is based on the 6×6 variant of the old Austrian Gelandewagen. It comes with a 5.5-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine that can pump up a whopping 536-horsepower drive. Then, there’s 7-speed transition that can disposition the 8,300lb truck to 60 mph at a shocking 6 seconds! The seats breathe luxury in quilted white leather while the dash is carbon-fiber accented. The six wheels split the torque 30/40/30 among the axles from front to rear for maximum traction. This makes it possible to scale 52-degree approach angles effortlessly. The inflation of the tires can be controlled from the cockpit.
Autoweek reports that we could see a maximum of 30 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG monsters rolled out by October for a whopping $457,000.
