Mercedes AMG G63 vs Toyota Land Cruiser
The video aims at thorough testing of both these vehicles in extreme off-roading conditions. However, before we begin, we have to mention that the AMG G63 is on regular performance tyres and not on off-road tyres. The first challenge is going uphill and the one to reach the top on the dirt track the fastest, wins. Both these SUVs have plenty of serious off-road equipment like diff-locks, low range mode, and various stability functions. In this race, it is the Land Cruiser that comes out on top due to the sheer fact that it is rugged and could be driven roughly. The AMG is expensive and care needs to be taken to prevent damaging its parts. In the second race, the SUVs drive downhill in the low range. The AMG with its sophisticated hardware wins this one.
The next challenge is a quick lap around the bushes with undulations on the road. Land Cruiser wins this because the AMG took forever to turn around a corner due to its large turning radius. Then we move on to the terrain to test wheel articulation, chassis control and ground clearance. The AMG had to quit one race in this segment because its exhaust pipes scratched the ground. On the subsequent tasks, AMG was able to perform better due to its higher ground clearance and sophisticated off-road control.
