New Mercedes G-Class spotted again

New Mercedes G-Class spotted again

After 38 years of production with a virtually unchanged exterior, Mercedes plans to introduce a new G-Class this year. Most visible change for the new model will be a wider body that is rumoured to grow no less than 10cm. 

The new G will also get a wider track, electro-mechanical steering (which will allow modern assistance systems) and independent suspension at front. The general layout, however, with a boxy profile and a steep windshield will carry over. 

According to our sources, massive use of light-weight materials will reduce the car’s weight by 200kg. Power will come from several in-line six-cylinder engines options with up to 300bhp (turbo diesel) and 360bhp (petrol), coupled to the 9-G Tronic automatic gearbox. 

The high performance G63 will follow shortly after the introduction of the less potent variants. As usual for the Affalterbach models, the G63 will feature more aggressive bumpers front and rear, additional air-intakes and more prominent exhaust pipes as well as a wider track with corresponding wheel arches.
