Mercedes-Benz has officially announced its plans to introduce the G65 AMG in the United States, as the powerful SUV will be on sale from November.
The Mercedes G65 AMG may have been introduced about three years ago, but the carmaker has recently announced its plans to offer it in the United States too. The vehicle will be hitting showrooms this November and it will be priced from 217,900 USD, without the 925 USD destination charge and delivery fee. This basically means almost 81,000 USD more than the 2015 G63 AMG, but let’s not forget that the “new” model is more powerful and packed with extra features.
“Mercedes-Benz USA announced pricing today for the ultra-exclusive 2016 Mercedes-AMG G65. Starting at an MSRP of USD $217,900, this model joins the G550 and G63 AMG in the U.S. lineup in November 2015. It is also the fourth exclusive AMG model priced above $200,000: SL65 ($215,250), S65 sedan ($222,000), and S65 Coupe ($230,900)”, said the carmaker in its official press release.
The new 2016 Mercedes G63 AMG is packing a 6.0 liter twin turbo V12 engine under its hood. This is capable of producing no less than 621 HP (463 kW) and it has a peak torque of 999 Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the model needs just 5.4 seconds. More details on it, including the standard items list and the optionals, are limited at this time and will be announced close to its sale date.
