The Mercedes G63 AMG comes with an "Eco" start/stop button.

Can we just look at some of the things around the ECO Start/Stop system:

  • 5.5L Bi-Turbo V8
  • Permanent all-wheel drive with a 2-speed transfer case
  • Three lockable differentials

All three of these things come together along with the weight and aerodynamics of a brick to make what's probably the most inefficient passenger vehicle on the road, and Mercedes thinks a start/stop feature is going to help that?
