The G-Class is the highest-end line of Mercedes SUVs. That may be why, since 2007, average annual sales have only been about 1,000 units. The G comes in two versions. The first has the 5.5-liter engine used in two other of Mercedes’ more powerful cars that are not part of the race-inspired AMG line. The second is the G63 AMG, which has a base price of $134,300. Its biturbo V8 puts out 536 horsepower to power an SUV that can pull as much as 7,500 pounds. According to a writer for Road & Track, “Mercedes claims the 5721-pound beast hits 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. I believe it.”
