DT Dobie who hold the Mercedes Benz franchise in Kenya has launched the 2019 Mercedes Benz AMG G63 into the Kenyan market.
The G63 is the latest edition to the G Class family which was started in 1973 when Daimler decided to develop an offroad vehicle capable of competing with existing machines in this class. Production commenced in 1979 and with assembly being carried out largely by hand which is still the case today. When it was launched, it became an hit with the German police forces, Border Guards and the armies of Australia, Argentina and Switzerland due to its robustness.
The 2019 Mercedes Benz AMG G63 features a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine. This new engine is able to create up to 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. This translates into impressive performance as the G63 can accelerate from 0 – 100 Km/h in 4.5 seconds which is a 0.9 second improvement from the 2018 model. It also comes with a nine-speed automatic gearbox with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters which send all that power to the all-wheel-drive system that prioritizes rear traction for better handling and acceleration. It has a maximum speed of 220 km/h.
All in all, it appears that the car is a pleasure to drive and it will definitely turn heads. The G63 is retailing at Ksh. 37 Million!!
