2023 footage and surveillance video of Mercedes-Benz AMG G63: Small update planned

The original Mercedes-Benz G-Class has been around for four decades and has been updated several times over the years to keep it fresh. We don’t know how long Mercedes plans to keep the current G-Class on the shelves before redesigning it, but it seems the automaker will at least give the car periodic updates in the same way as its predecessor.

We have discovered prototypes for the updated version of the standard G-Class and now we have spy photos depicting a tester for the updated G63 from AMG. Both G-Class versions are expected to launch later this year as 2023 models, and prototypes of both are also featured in the video below.

Mercedes is also testing the high-riding 4×4 Squared option for the second-generation G-Class, which we will likely see introduced alongside this update.

Judging by the camouflage device on the G63 prototype, we will likely see a modified shield introduced at the front. And while the general shape of the grille will not change, there is expected to be a new grid pattern.

We are told that the dash is also covered, which also shows some changes inside. An important update inside will be the addition of Mercedes’ MBUX infotainment system, which features every current Mercedes G-Class bar.

The G63 is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine for 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. While AMG has just launched this V-8 plug-in hybrid powertrain in its GT 4-Door Coupe, we don’t expect the G63 to go the plug-in hybrid route.

A more likely bet is the addition of the lightweight hybrid system that has been offered with the 4.0-liter V-8 in some Mercedes models. The system has an electric motor capable of adding temporary power to 21 hp and 184 lb-ft. The electric powertrain was planned for the G-Class, although it won’t appear until 2024.

Keep an eye on updates as the development process continues.
