Mercedes Reinstates Some 2022 V-8 Models, Including G63 and GLS600

Share this article

Orders are open again for the G-wagen, GLS580, GLE580, Maybach GLS600, and AMG GLE63, but the AMG E63 is still missing from the U.S. lineup.

Several V-8–powered models will soon rejoin Mercedes’ U.S. lineup after being dropped for the 2022 model year. A Mercedes-Benz spokesperson confirmed to C/D that the company is reopening orders for certain versions of the 2022 G-class, GLE-class, and GLS-class SUVs powered by the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine.

In addition to the Mercedes-Benz G550, GLE580, and GLS580, AMG 63 versions of the G-class, GLE-class, and GLS-class—plus the Maybach GLS600—will be available again. But the AMG E63 and AMG GT63 4-Door will remain absent for the time being, and Mercedes said it could not provide any details regarding the availability of these models. The S-class sedan and new AMG SL-class convertible also use this same V-8 engine but did not appear to be affected by the same production issues.

We assume that the easing of supply-chain issues is the main reason that these models are returning, although Mercedes has been relatively quiet throughout this ordeal. The suspension of these models was initially blamed on “various global, external and internal requirements, as well as several other factors, including but not limited to challenges in the supply chain,” which could also include emissions regulations.
