Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

Mercedes offers high-performance versions of the G-Class in the form of the G63 AMG and the new-for-2016 G65 AMG. Both models feature turbocharged engines — the G63 AMG a V-8 and the G65 AMG a V-12 — that are hand built. Other changes include a sport exhaust system, high-performance brakes and unique styling cues.

What's Special

  • 563-horsepower, turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 engine with 560 pounds-feet of torque (G63 AMG)
  • 621-hp, turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12 with 738 pounds-feet of torque (G65 AMG)
  • Unique grille design
  • Side exhaust pipes

Here's info on the regular G-Class:

Mercedes-Benz focuses largely on road-going manners with its GLE-Class SUV, but the G-Class is a hard-core off-road machine that seats five people across two rows. It competes with the Land Rover Range Rover. High-performance AMG variants also are available.

New for 2016
Mercedes offers a new G65 AMG performance model that's powered by a handcrafted turbocharged V-12 engine, and the base G550 gets a new turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that makes 416 hp. An adaptive suspension is now available for the G550.

Significant Standard Features

  • 416-hp, turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine
  • Seven-speed automatic transmission
  • Four-wheel drive
  • Two-speed transfer case

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
