It exudes a luxurious and exotic vibe that begs for attention and we want more of it. Therefore, need we remind you that this German marque produces some of the most reliable Overlanding vehicles out there.
Conventional pickup trucks cannot compare to the off-road credentials of this six-wheeled beauty. Engineers from Mercedes-Benz have done a wonderful job crafting something that delivers performance and comfort. Hence, sitting within the robust frame is a 5.5-liter twin-turbo AMG V8 engine. This produces 536 horsepower with 560 lb-ft of torque, which is at the user’s disposal.
RM Sotheby’s claims it can sprint from standstill to 60 miles per hour in just 7.8 seconds. Moreover, testing shows it can manage a top speed of 100 mph. These are impressive numbers given that the 2015 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 weighs about 3,775 kg.
Meanwhile, its Overlanding credentials flaunt the use of an innovative tire inflation system. This apparently allows you to modulate the tire pressure for improved traction of various surfaces. The six 37-inch wheels with all-terrain rubber grants a 460 mm ground clearance. The truck can handle 52-degree and 54-degree angles without breaking a sweat. Furthermore, this gives it a wading depth capacity of up to one meter of water.
A peek inside the lavish cabin shows leather upholstery with a grey two-tone black combo and tan elements. Bask in comfort as the plush Designo leather seats come with heating, ventilation, and fully motorized to adjust to your needs. This 2015 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 is a gem that rarely shows up at auctions.
