The upcoming 2025 Mercedes-AMG G 63 is slated for enhancements that include technological upgrades in performance, safety, and utility.

The model, expected to launch in Australia in the fourth quarter of 2024, retains the classic G-Class design with modifications for improved functionality.

The 2025 version integrates a mild-hybrid system with the pre-existing AMG M177 4.0-litre twin-turbo V-8 engine, augmented by a 48V integrated starter-generator.

This system contributes an additional 15kW and up to 200Nm of torque on demand, aimed at enhancing vehicle response and fuel efficiency.

With the inclusion of the optional AMG Performance Package, the vehicle’s acceleration from 0 to 100km/h is estimated to improve to 4.1 seconds, reducing the time by four-tenths of a second compared to the non-hybrid variant. The stated top speed for the new model is 240km/h.

The update introduces the Mercedes-AMG Active Ride Control system, adapted for off-road use.

This suspension technology uses hydraulically interconnected shocks to manage wheel and body motion more precisely, eliminating the need for traditional mechanical roll bars.

The system's flexibility in adjusting roll stiffness is evident in its various modes, ranging from Sport+ to Off-Road settings. The AMG Offroad Package Pro further allows for manual adjustments to the suspension's roll stiffness and includes specialized off-road driving modes.

Exterior updates aim at improving aerodynamics with changes to the A-pillar and additional trim pieces, contributing to a reduced drag coefficient.

Design adjustments also include new front and rear bumpers, and a repositioned rear camera for unobstructed views.

Interior advancements feature the latest iteration of the MBUX infotainment system, now with a touchscreen interface and an off-road cockpit function that offers a 360-degree camera perspective.

New to the model are driver assistance technologies including lane-keeping assist and emergency stop assist.

The Mercedes-AMG G 63 is part of a broader release that will also introduce the electric G 580, with more details expected to be announced soon.

Pricing information for the updated G 63 remains unconfirmed, but will likely reflect the enhancements made to the vehicle.
