Now that we've seen the 2019 G-Class, we've learned those worries are unfounded. More powerful AMG-engined G-Classes are also inevitable.
Nevertheless, the 2019 model is larger, having grown by 4.8 inches in width, 2.1 inches in length (the wheelbase is 1.6 inches longer) and 0.3 inches in height.
The current Mercedes-AMG G 63 sells for $253,900. And in spite of the footprint increase, that single piece of metal is about 375 pounds lighter than before. Instead of redesigning the body, Mercedes-Benz focused on updating the exterior with minor changes such as having smoother surfaces all throughout. Two customisable 12.3-inch high-res screens sit side-by-side on the dash, displaying most of the 4x4's features. Options such as climate-controlled leather seats and leather door cards add to the opulence, but you'll still find the traditional grab handle in front of the front passenger, just in case an aggressive kerb mount outside Harrods should be necessary. There are also increases in elbow room and shoulder room in both the front and rear.
Technology is now an essential part of the G-Class. Then the foldable rear seats allow the SUV to carry more baggage.
Gears and Cogs Only one G-Class variant has been confirmed for the USA: the G550.
Powering the 2019 Mercedes G550 is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that sends its 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque through a nine-speed automatic transmission.
News feed to get a makeover
The head of Facebook's news feed admitted that some pages "may see their reach, video watch time and referral traffic decrease ". This will be done by focusing on the content produced by friends and family and not the viral posts.
A specially-adapted version of Mercedes' nine-speed automatic gearbox has found its way into the all-new vehicle. With three different drive modes, the steering effort can be varied for particular terrain and traffic situations.
The 2019 G-Class will hit production sometime later this year, and as always, it'll be built in Graz, Austria by contract-manufacturer Magna Steyr.
The inside of the vehicle has many changes and improvements, especially in the technology department.
The GLB will be the flagship for the next generation of Benz's new small auto family, which will start next month with the all-new A-Class, and will sit between the small GLA and mid-size GLC SUVs in both price and size. Priced from €107,040.50 ($130,532 / INR 82,81,668), the new Mercedes G-Class will go on display at the North American International Auto Show later today. Refinement and on-road manners are much-improved as a result, without having to ditch a super-low-ratio first gear for off-road crawling, or ground clearance; the new rides 6mm higher off the road.
Departure angle is 30 degrees, approach 31 degrees and breakover 26 degrees. It adapts the adjustable damping and steering as well as the accelerator, avoiding unnecessary gearshifts, to "ensure optimum control and maximum off-road capability". You can also get the G-Class with Multi-contour seats that offer massaging, since no one should be uncomfortable when they off-road.
Mercedes also worked to improve an already solid off-road performance. Let us know below.
