Report: Mercedes-Benz USA Says No 2022 AMG V8s, No G-Class

No more V8s for 2022, reportedly over supply issues

  • Multiple dealer employees report nearly all 2022 V8 models will be unavailable

  • No AMG 63 models, no G-Class, only S 580 remains


Reports from Mercedes-Benz dealers in the US say that the brand’s V8s are dead for 2022. The news comes with a few notable exceptions, but they’re probably not the V8s you’re hoping would stick around.

We’re awaiting official confirmation, but multiple separate dealer sources have all said the same thing. If you were planning to order a Mercedes-AMG 63 model for the 2022 model year (or one of a number of other V8s), or if you had already ordered one, you aren’t going to get your ride. No new orders are allowed, and the existing orders will not be filled.

Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG offer a load of V8 engine options, including the GLE 580 and GLE 63, GLS 580 and GLS 63, G 550 and G 63, E 63, S 63, C 63, and others. The first report we saw of the news came from Benzblogger, a Mercedes-Benz sales rep on Tiktok, who said that dealers were just advised of the changes. The reason she said stores were given was “supply chain issues.”

What will that one Benz peddler do? Extend leases, sell used models, and grow to love the AMG 53s. Some V8s will remain in the lineup, but it appears to be only the S 580 and Mercedes-Maybach S 580. This news would mean that the G Class will skip 2022 in the US entirely, as only the two V8 engines are offered in that model.

A matching story was posted to Reddit /Cars at the end of last week, with the same information. Mercedes-Benz has previously stated that at least some of its AMG 63 models will be getting a four-cylinder hybrid driveline. We don’t expect that for 2022, but it may happen sooner rather than later.
