The German manufacturer is considering the possibility of adding new versions of Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
Recall, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class of the previous generation of these versions was not, but in January this year at the Detroit Motor Show premiere of an off-road car of a new generation. Probably, the company decided, why not get additional profit from the sales of the model, expanding the assortment of versions.
Since the “charged” version of the new G-Class already exists, the release of yet another more powerful version of the G 63 with the S prefix looks the simplest and most likely move. Moreover, AMG has such experience – several models already have S-versions, and on the basis of the same four-liter bimber M178, which is equipped with a new G 63 with a return of 577 hp and 850 Nm of torque.
This was also hinted by the head of the G-Class project Gunnar Gutenke to journalists of the Auto Express. “Previously, we never had controllability and dynamics of the S-version level,” Gutenke said. “I’m looking forward to future modifications.” By the way, the company already has a registered name G 73.
And, of course, we do not forget about the already existing experience of producing a luxury Maybach modification based on the G-Class – the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet. However, then the company launched a limited and very expensive version with a V12 engine worth about 750 thousand dollars.” We had a Maybach performed by Landaulet. We want to develop this tradition,” Gutenka told the publication.
So, the appearance of these versions can be expected with a high probability. They would allow the revival of SUV sales, which is sold in Europe and the United States approximately equally – 5,457 and 4,188 units, respectively.
