13 City / 17 Highway & 14 Combined

The Greenhouse Gas Rating is 1 out of 10 and Smog Rating is 3 out of 10.

At least my G is Emerald Green, so I could still claim that it’s a “green vehicle.”

I was hoping it could pull off EPA numbers at least that of my wife's GMC 6.2L Sierra with 420HP/460lbft. It is rated 15/20 and can do 22 on the highway...

Translation of EPA figures: 10 MPG, on a good day!

Is this an improvement over 2018 G550?

Has the AMG G63 typically rated with a worse EPA mpg vs/ G550?

‘18 G550 (4.0L) 13/14
’18 G63 (5.5L) 12/15

The ‘19’s will both have similar 4.0L engines, so the G63 will likely be the same or slightly worse. I don’t think the EPA testing includes max acceleration runs, so the same is a likely outcome. In real life the 63 will probably be worse if one actually drives it like an AMG.

2015 SL550, 2018 G63
I just took my new 2018 G63 on a 160 mile trip all highway. Averaged 15.4 MPG, used cruise control for about half the drive, not bad. I suspect the 2019 AMG will fare about the same give or take.
