All the Mercedes-Benz G-Class fans out there may have noticed that the exterior design of the SUV has not changed a lot since its first introduction in 1979. This does not just make the nameplate iconic but also its form factor.
Having said this, what did Mercedes do to the new generation model officially unveiled during the NAIAS 2018? This time around, they tried giving the ride additional road presence through making it wider and longer and integrating a fundamentally contemporary interior that still reflects the exterior’s overall aesthetics.
If you appreciated what you have seen in the latest S-Class and E-Class, for sure, you will also love the G-Wagen’s instrument cluster, primarily because of the two displays of 12.3 inches that share a glass cover.
Every switch and button has been inspired by the contemporary Mercedes models. As a refresher, the previous G-Class had similar steering wheel and buttons found on the GLE before its facelift, or also known as the M-Class.
However, if you are not satisfied with the changes in styling, you might want to consider all the contemporary extras that are optionally available, including the Designo leather upholstery, the Active Multicontour Seat packaging, and the 16-speaker Burmester sound system.
When it comes to its performance on the move, this launch model comes with the 4.0 L twin-turbocharged engine of V8 style that produces 416 horsepower or 421 PS, together with 609 Nm or 450 pound feet of torque. However, because the straight line speed is not a forte of the G-Class, you will be relieved to learn that its latest 2019 model comes with a frame of ladder type, new independent rear and front suspensions, as well as three 100 percent differential locks.
Fans in the US can expect to get their hands on the all new G-Wagon later this year, and it expected to be in demand among celebrities, similar to the earlier generations.
