Mercedes Maybach S-class facelift revealed

Mercedes Maybach S-class facelift revealed

The 2019 Mercedes-Maybach sedans will make their world debut in March at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and are expected to reach U.S. rooms this summer.

The engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox and - unsurprisingly - 4MATIC four-wheel-drive, ensuring the G 63 is nearly as capable off-road as its lesser-powered brethren.

Handling and performance is aided by a new independent front wheel suspension, three 100-percent differential locks, and optional adaptive damping. Mercedes claims this will propel the G63 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.4 seconds-V8 pony auto territory despite its significantly greater heft. Instead, Mercedes chose to add standard features and offer more technology options.

Don't think that this large, high-performance SUV is particularly environmentally friendly, though.

The SUV comes with cylinder deactivation that Mercedes claims help achieve a combined fuel consumption of 13.2L/100km while the combined Carbon dioxide emissions is 299g/km.

Oh and the side pipes which exit below the rear doors.

2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 generates 577 horsepower. Pricing will be announced closer to their availability in the USA, which is expected late this summer.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has many areas which if you see them with a critical eye turn out to be improved versions of their former selves. Prices for the G350d are expected to start just under £100,000 - about on par with the outgoing model.

The two twin scroll turbos are mounted within the "V" of the engine block which, among other things, helps minimize turbo lag. Pricing won't be announced until just before the first of the G63 models reach US showrooms late this year. It offers five on-road modes, including Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual.

As for the engines, not much has changed. At the back, gone are the bulbous taillights, in their place are a set of brand new sculpted taillights that stretch from the edge of the license plate frame to the rear quarter panel. The Maybach S-Class now shows even more styling differentiations from the standard S Class with a new grille that's been inspired by the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance premiering Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 coupe from 2016.

Clever design touches include dash-top speakers that mirror the car's trademark bonnet-mounted indicators and the iconic passenger grab-handle in its rightful place.

Now, though, the brand has announced a successor to the previous G's most ridiculous incarnation - the brutish AMG G 63. Mercedes-Benz has also ditched the old steering column stalk for cruise control and added a button to the wheel.
