Mercedes have revealed an all-new G-Class for 2018.
Looking at the exterior, not much has changed, which has been the case since the car’s inception in 1979.
The somewhat noticeable differences include fresher headlight design. The new G-Class is also 53 mm longer and 121 mm wider to give even more presence.
Interior has seen most of the attention with a redesigned instrument panel featuring analogue round dials.
An optional instrument cluster showing virtual instruments can help give two 12.3-inch displays blend visually into a Widescreen Cockpit.
With the bigger dimensions, driver and passenger space has increased.
The seats in the G‑Class come as standard with numerous functions, with the rear able to fold down to 60, 40 or 100 percent.
The new G-Class is now even better off-road and on-road. the three 100-percent differential locks and LOW RANGE off-road gear reduction.
The new suspension was a collaboration between Mercedes and Mercedes-AMG. There’s independent suspension with double-wishbone front axle in combination with a rigid rear axle.
UK specification isn’t confirmed but the G 500 comes with a 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine that produces 422 hp. The engine will be paired to a new automatic 9G-Tronic gearbox.
Deliveries of the new G-Class are expected in June and will start from €107,040.50 in Germany.
