World premiere: At the Mercedes-Benz New Year’s Reception on the eve of the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the all new Mercedes-Benz G-Class took centre stage. At first glance the new G-Class has changed very little compared to its predecessor. But appearances are deceptive... This G-Class generation is now #strongerthantime. With its completely updated interior and numerous new features, the G-Class has now undergone the most significant transformation in its almost 40-year career, but despite this major technical and stylistic overhaul the new G-Class manages to stay true to itself.
The new Mercedes-Benz G-Class presents itself on top form. Whether on or off the road and whatever the operating conditions, the off-road vehicle impresses with its performance, cutting-edge assistance systems, outstanding handling, and safety. At the same time, the new suspension, the DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes, the “G-Mode” and the three 100‑percent differential locks enhance not only ride comfort but also agility – on any surface.
The enhanced design of the G-Class follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity and at the same time remains true to the character of the original. As a result, the door hinges positioned on the outside and the surface-mounted bonnet are carried over to the new generation. With the latest update, the off-road icon – which has been continually enhanced technically over the decades but visually has hardly changed – is making the leap into a new era – both in terms of technology and form. The new G-Class is 53 mm longer and 121 mm wider and now has even greater presence, on the road as well as in rough terrain.
