The G 63 model is, however, quicker than the G 550 hitting the 60 mph line in just 4.8 seconds and a quarter-mile in 13.3 seconds at 107 mph. It has a top speed of 130 mph and can brake from 70 mph to 0 in less than 163 feet while the G 550 needs additional 20 feet to stop from 70 mph. The G550 has an economical fuel consumption doing 15 mpg when compared to the G 63’s 13 mpg (owing to its large displacement engine)
Just like the G63 rental, G 550 has an All-Wheel drive system with a 7-speed automatic transmission. The G 63’s AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission features AMG shift paddles on the steering wheel and three driving modes with different accelerating and shifting experience. Both have three locking differentials for off-roading.
Suspension and steering on G Class Vehicles
They have live axles and coils up front and in the rear. Both the G 550 and G 63 latest models are equipped with optional driver adjustable dampers and have recirculating-ball type steering system.
Luxury G63 and G550 Interior Options
For the G 63, supportive comfy leather sets which are heated and ventilated are what ushers one in. The white illuminated stainless steel panels with AMG lettering hardly goes unnoticed. The G 63 boasts more than 120 cubic feet of interior space. The state of the art infotainment system has been redesigned to feature a large, center-mounted color display as part of the COMAND system with a multiple DVD player and controllers. The interior access and navigation system has been integrated with special off-road features also made available.
With an extra $ 149, 175, one can get carbon-fiber interior trim, rear seat entertainment systems with dual monitors, purple design mystic blue metallic paint, heated steering wheel, and an all-wheel floor matt. However, the legroom, headroom and the narrow cabin are not that impressive.
For the G 550, the cabin is laced with leather and though narrow, is upright. The infotainment system includes a TFT color display between two round dials and a tablet-style display for the standard COMAND system, merging navigation, entertainment and connectivity functions.
Mercedes G550 Exterior

Just like the G 550, the G 63’s suspension system settings are adjusted for more handling characteristics. It has a twin-blade radiator grill with four chrome inserts. Still on the front, the AMG G 63 bumpers have three large airflow inlets. The new LED daytime running lights are positioned just below the bi-xenon headlights.
The Mercedes SUV Dimensions

“Thomas R.”GREAT service and customer care. The staff and owners are very knowledgeable about every vehicle in their fleet… They provide optional home deliveries and pick-ups, which I think is more convenient.
