2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

TOYOTA UPGRADES ICONIC LANDCRUISER PRADO
Toyota has upgraded its LandCruiser Prado with bolder exterior styling, a
more refined interior and even better handling for the 2014 model year.
Exterior changes are led by a distinctive redesign with a deeper front
bumper, heritage-inspired grille and newly styled alloy wheels that
reinforce the Toyota 4x4's toughness, reliability and renowned off-road
Interiors have benefited from comprehensive upgrades that raise quality,
convenience and ease of use with new multi-media audio systems, a
redesigned dashboard and new materials, detailing and features.
Refinements to the standard suspension and the electronically modulated
Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System have improved handling and ride comfort.
Toyota has further developed functions that provide driver guidance and
technical support, ensuring maximum precision and control for negotiating
obstacles as well as more intuitive controls for on and off-road systems.
It has extended safety features to include trailer sway control, a system
that assists the driver if a towed vehicle is unsettled by factors such as
crosswinds or bumpy roads.
Seven airbags, a rear-view camera and stability and traction control are
standard across the range, as is an emergency brake signal that
automatically flashes the stop lights to warn other drivers of potential
Despite the advances in styling and features, the entry price for Prado has
been kept at $55,990* and the changes across the rest of the range average
less than 1.2 per cent.
Toyota Australia executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said the
upgrades will confirm LandCruiser Prado as one of the most technically
advanced and easy-to-use 4WD vehicles in the world.
"LandCruiser Prado has become an icon in the 4WD market for its blend of
rugged performance and premium features," Mr Cramb said.
"The latest improvements will enhance Prado's rock-solid reputation as one
of the world's toughest and most reliable 4x4s while offering the style,
comfort and on-road performance that are important to customers," he said.
"Prado's off-road performance and on-road dynamics, its powerful road
presence, enhanced ride quality and high levels of technology distinguish
it as an ideal blend of go-anywhere capability, comfort and refinement."
In ascending order, the five-door Prado range is GX (a five-seater with a
seven-seat option) and the seven-seat GXL, VX and Kakadu. Three-door models
have been discontinued.
Prado's styling makeover features a newly designed radiator grille with
five prominent horizontal bars. It is integrated with new headlamp clusters
to create a more powerful-looking structure that has been placed higher to
afford added component protection during off-road driving.
External measurements and approach, departure and ramp-over angles are
unchanged, safeguarding Prado's excellent agility, manoeuvrability and
The vehicle profile is enhanced by newly designed 17-inch six-spoke and
18-inch 12-spoke alloy wheels. There are two new exterior colours - Dynamic
Blue, a dark blue mica paint, and the mica metallic Liquid Bronze.
Inside, Toyota has revised interior trims and ornamentation to create a
more elegant atmosphere with premium touches such as double stitching for
better tactile appeal and even higher perceived quality.
The forward-folding angle of the second-row seats has been increased by
more than 12 degrees, improving ease of entry and exit for third-row
occupants. VX and Kakadu's second-row outboard seats can be heated
The revised driver's instrument binnacle incorporates new tachometer and
speedometer dials - Optitron for VX and Kakadu. Between the Optitron dials
is a new 4.2-inch colour TFT multi-information display (MID) that provides
significantly enhanced off-road driving assistance.
