If you believe that the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG is not too powerful, Edo Competition might be the right solution for you. For those who don’t know, the standard G63 AMG is powered by a 5.5-liter biturbo engine that generates 544 hp (400 kW) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque, mated to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission.

This model is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h or 130 mph.

According to Edo Competition G63 AMG, the tuned version of the G63 AMG is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in about 5.0 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h.

The new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG is fitted with an appearance that keeps up with the times. Just like the SL63 AMG and SL65 AMG, the new G63 AMG has adopted the new face of the AMG brand. This new face is defined by a high-gloss black "twin-blade" radiator grille with four chrome inserts, as consistent with the vehicle’s classic contours and off-road look.

In addition, the new G63 AMG is provided with the AMG bumper that features three large apertures serving as airflow inlets for the cooling system. The new G63 AMG is provided with vertical high-gloss chrome stainless steel inserts as well as LED daytime running lamps sitting below the bi-xenon headlamps.

Furthermore, the new G63 AMG comes with the G63 AMG type plate on the rear door and the "V8 BITURBO" logo on the front mudguard.

Inside, the new G63 AMG is loaded with more innovative features compared to its predecessor. Aside from the design tweaks, a new instrument panel as well as state-of-the-art infotainment and assist systems, the new G63 AMG is given an AMG instrument cluster with color TFT screen, AMG main menu and separate gear display. All the doors of the new G63 AMG also have white-lit AMG sills.
