AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission with shorter shift times
The AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission used in the new G 63 has a model-
specific software application to achieve very short shift times. The multiple downshift
function allows more spontaneous bursts of speed, while the double-declutching
function in "Sport" and "Sport Plus" transmission modes makes for an even more
emotional driving experience.

Enhanced agility and traction: AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive
The standard-specification AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive features rear-
biased torque distribution with a front/rear split of 40 to 60 percent. In the preceding
model, the distribution was still a neutral 50:50. The differential locks now respond to

the switches even more rapidly, as they are
electromechanically actuated and fully networked. An LED and the central driver’s
display indicate which lock is currently active.

Characteristics at the touch of a finger: AMG DYNAMIC SELECT
For the first time in the history of the Mercedes-AMG G-Class, the driving characteristics
can be individualised at the touch of a finger with five on-road and three off-road driving
modes. With the five DYNAMIC SELECT on-road modes "Slippery", "Comfort", "Sport",
"Sport+" and "Individual", the characteristics range from efficient and comfortable to
very sporty. Three off-road modes – "Sand", "Trail" and "Rock" – are available when
driving off the beaten track.

Bodyshell: made for the toughest jobs
The basis for the enormous off-road capabilities of the new AMG G 63 is provided by a
torsionally rigid ladder-type frame of high-strength steel and a mounted body of
composite construction. This design is considerably more robust and suitable for off-
road operations than a unibody construction. The bodyshell consists of various grades
of steel while the wings, bonnet and doors are made of aluminium.

Safety features:
The Active Brake Assist gives the driver a visual warning if the distance to the vehicle
in front is too small. An audible warning sounds when a danger of collision is identified;
it can also provide braking assistance in line with the situation at hand and, if the driver
fails to react, initiate autonomous braking. Away from off-road terrain, Active Lane
Keeping Assist can detect when the car leaves its lane unintentionally, warn the driver
by making the steering wheel vibrate, and actuate the brakes on one side to help
manoeuvre the vehicle back into its lane. The optional Driving Assistance package
includes Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC as well as Blind Spot Assist. This
combination makes life easier for the driver when driving in convoy on motorways and
main roads as well as in stop-and-go traffic, and it can enhance safety by monitoring the
vehicle’s blind spot. The new G 63 cocoons the passengers with a total of 9 airbags.
AMG high-performance braking system provide optimum deceleration whatever the
terrain. Precise controllability and low response times ensure optimum safety on and off the road. The electric parking brake is integrated into the rear axle calliper and can be activated and released at the press of a button.
