Keeping that in mind, it is only natural that the G 63 AMG 6x6 is defined by excess.
Take its footprint for instance: it is 5.87 meters (231 inches) long, 2.1 meters (82.7 inches) wide and 2.3 meters tall (90.6 inches), it weighs 3.85 tons and has a ground clearance of 460 mm (18.1 inches), more than double than the standard G 63 AMG, which sits “only” 210 mm (8.3 inches) above the ground.
Needless to say, the G 63 AMG 6x6 is a machine designed to go anywhere.
Mercedes didn’t offer pricing details, saying it will decide to build the G 63 AMG 6x6 depending on the response to the near-series show vehicle.

“The Ener-G-Force is the vision of an off-roader that, while reflecting tomorrow’s adventures, also invokes the genes of the Mercedes-Benz off-road icon, the G model,” explained Gorden Wagener, Director of Design at Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Modern and cool, it could also be a clue about a new beginning for the off-road design idiom of Mercedes-Benz.”
Ener-G-Force Designer Hubert Lee says that the concept uses important genes such as proportions and design elements from the original G-Class adapted to the modern world.
Under the hood, the Ener-G-Force Concept justifies its name with a futuristic fuel-cell powertrain that consumes recycled water stored in tanks on the roof to power four wheel-hub motors offering a completely theoretical operating range of about 800 kilometres or close to 500 miles.
