Today, we recognize the performance aspects when the AMG name shows up on a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. These three letters are all we need to realize the Merc we see is something special. The partnership between AMG and Mercedes-Benz that brings us many Mercedes-AMG models is 55 years in the making. The celebration of this milestone begins with a remarkable Mercedes-AMG G63 Edition 55 luxury SUV.
Special finishes added to the incredible Mercedes-AMG G63
For the G63 Edition 55, Motor1 tells us special finishes find their way around this luxury SUV. Buyers will find a choice of either Obsidian Black Metallic or G Manufaktur Opalite White. A unique decal resides on the lower portion o the doors with a stylized AMG emblem, giving this SUV the desired style quality.
Dark accents are found in the AMG Night Package and Night Package II, giving buyers the look they want. The fuel cap stands out on this vehicle with a chrome finish and AMG branding. We’ll see 22-inch forged wheels with a cross-spoke design and a Matt Tantalum Grey finish on this luxury SUV.
What does the cabin of the Mercedes-AMG G63 Edition 55 offer?
As soon as you open the doors, you’ll see black and red throughout the cabin of this specialized G63 luxury SUV. Nappa leather covers the seats while the steering receives the Dinamica microfiber material, creating the desired soft feeling. You’ll see AMG badging everywhere you look when inside the G63 Edition 55.
All consumers purchasing this celebratory model receive an AMG-branded car cover, allowing passers-by to know what you’ve got under that veil.
What’s the power level for the Mercedes-AMG G63 luxury SUV?
According to Top Gear, every version of the new Edition 55 model of this G-Wagen gives owners a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This engine offers 577 horsepower and 627 lb.-ft. of torque, which is plenty for this luxury SUV to take on any diving challenge. The power routes to the wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission, giving you a smooth driving feeling on any road. You might not want to take a specialized model of the G-Class SUV out on the trails, but that might be exactly where you go.
Will the Edition 55 luxury SUV package arrive in the United States?
We don’t know if this specialized package will make the venture across the Atlantic. Customers can now place orders in Europe and receive the vehicle through October, but there is no information about a U.S. release. Adding the Edition 55 package to the Mercedes-AMG G63 costs buyers $19,601 on top of the base vehicle price.
More celebratory vehicles are coming
The Mercedes-AMG G63 Edition 55 luxury SUV is only the beginning of the celebration of 55 years of working together. More models wearing the AMG badge with the Edition 55 label will arrive as the year progresses. If you’re looking for a specific model wearing this packaging and badging, it’s likely on the way.
