Mercedes-AMG is reportedly giving the blocky G63 greater performance both on and off road through the introduction of new suspension technology.
The pressure in the suspension system will use electronic switches which control valving. By separating oil flow from the valve actuation it allows more precise valve control.
The news outlet reports the new suspension upgrade is expected to offer greater wheel articulation and traction. It will also reportedly provide improved comfort on-road and increase off-road performance.
Autoblog reports the G63 will also receive the same mild-hybrid setup as the GLE 63 S.
The AMG GLE 63 S has a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine that is aided by a 48-volt electric system, with total outputs of 450kW of power and 850Nm of torque. That’s 20kW more than the current Mercedes-AMG G63.
Mercedes-Benz is expected to reveal the updated G-Class in 2024, along with the new electric EQG that will feature an electric motor in each wheel.
At this year’s Paris motor show, Ola Källenius, chairman of the board of management at Mercedes-Benz Group AG, told Motor Trend the Mercedes-Benz EQG will feature dedicated electric off-roader underpinnings.
Spy photos of an EQG prototype provide a glimpse at its new interior which includes a revised climate control unit, new console controller, and new steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons.
A lot of these features seem to come from the updated A-Class, and it’s likely they will carry over to the facelifted G-Class that was spied early last year. The off-roaders could also get the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz’s MBUX infotainment system.
Cosmetic changes for combustion-powered models appear to be limited to a restyled grille and front bumper.
