We at CK Auto Exclusive have enjoyed watching Mercedes-Benz vehicles grow and evolve. After almost forty years in the Mercedes family, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is starting to be phased out. The first model to go is the Mercedes-AMG G65. The G-Wagen has only received minor updates throughout its existence, mostly just to keep the tech fresh. In this article we look at what made the G65 a force to be reckoned with and what the G65 Final Edition has in store.
MERCEDES BENZ SERVICE: THE G65 VERSUS THE WORLD
Compared to modern SUVs, crossovers, and competitors, the G65 has three locking differentials and a twin-turbo V12. To celebrate the G-Class' legacy and end of G65 production, Mercedes-AMG has revealed the G65 Final Edition.
There will only be 65 units produced worldwide. The Final Edition retains the twin-turbo V12 (630 horsepower and 738 pound torque) hitting 60 mph in 5.3 seconds.
More than a third of all G-Class variants come from AMG, so it makes sense to celebrate the end of G65 production.
Most of the changes are visual, not under the hood. True to it's legacy, the G65 Final Edition sports bronze accents on the underride guard, bumpers, 21-inch wheels, and mirrors.
The black grille is outlined in bronze and the running boards and exhaust tips are done in matte black. This subtle feel is a calm and regal bow to the generations before the G65, giving it a more luxurious and conservative feel. The cab, seats and leather will also sport that familiar bronze, but the seats will have a darker, more brown stitching.
SO, HOW MUCH?
Yeah, bit on the pricier side, but most people don't buy cars in the G-Class for economic reasons. The key to increasing the longevity of a luxury vehicle such as the G65 is strict Benz service and Benz maintenance. Luckily for you, we service all Mercedes models!
Will Mercedes start production on a similar luxury SUV that will be reminiscent of the G-Class? We can only hope. CK Auto Exclusive is excited to see what Mercedes will hit us with next. A new class, a new challenge, a new generation of Mercedes lovers.
