Experience the new G-Class. Made from unique DNA. Built for extreme challenges. Ready to create history.
The new G-Class in action.
Follow the new G-Class to the origin of its strengths, and find out what makes the off-road legend so special: unparalleled off-road capabilities, markedly improved on-road performance and a unique design.
Off the road.
For generations, the interaction between the robust ladder-type frame, low-range gear ratio and the three differential locks have made the G-Class an off-road icon.
Improved off-road performance.
Experience the new G-Class in action off-road.
On the road.
The G-Class also displays its strengths in the city: The new G-Class unites extraordinary strengths and precise driving characteristics to form a unique experience.
Improved on-road performance.
The new G-Class captivates on account of the newly developed independent wheel suspension at the front, precise direct-steer system and an optional suspension with adaptive adjustable damping.
Be it in city traffic, on country roads or motorways – the off-roader captivates on any ground with exceptional performance.
In timeless design.
The new G-Class retains its characteristic design with its edges and corners, even though the entire vehicle has been almost completely redesigned.
With all its power, imposing nature and driving pleasure off-road and in the city, the G-Class is always one thing in particular: a unique design object.
Numerous details of every individual G-Class are lovingly hand-made in Graz, using the finest materials.
Powering the G550 base model is a 416-hp, 450-lb-ft of torque twin-turbo V-8 that delivers an EPA-rated 13/14 mpg city/highway. The same engine powers the lifted G550 4×42 model, but that version delivers 11/11 mpg. The AMG G63 is powered by 5.5-liter V-8 that churns out 563 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque and is rated at 12/14 mpg. The range-topping AMG G65 packs a big 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 that produces a whopping 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque and delivers 11/13 mpg. All models come standard with permanent four-wheel drive (with a two-speed transfer case and three locking differentials) and a seven-speed automatic transmission. The G550 4×42 has an incredible 17.2 inches of ground clearance.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Glass comes standard with a dual side-exit exhaust system, 19-inch AMG wheels, stainless-steel brush guard, LED daytime running lights, Nappa leather upholstery, 10-way power heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, interior ambient lighting, Comand multimedia system with central controller and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Available features for the G-Class lineup include an AMG Sport exhaust system, an AMG high-performance braking system, 21-inch AMG wheels, Nappa/Dinamica AMG Performance steering wheel, Designo wood trim, a Dinamica Interior Package, an AMG Night package, and a rear seat entertainment system. The G550 4×42 comes standard with 22-inch wheels, wide wheel arches, two-tone paint, portal axles with red suspension springs, stainless steel undercarriage skid plates, AMG carbon fiber trim, and seats and doors panels in Dinamica microfiber with diamond stitching.
The G-Class lineup comes standard with adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning, Parking Assist Parktronic (front and rear parking sensors), rearview camera, trailer stability assist, and an illuminated entry system. The G-Class does not have any additional driver assist safety features available.
What We Think
In a three-way comparison among highly capable and expensive off-road SUVs, the AMG G65 came in third: “Although the Mercedes G550 handled everything, we agreed that its poor observed fuel economy, propensity to scrape expensive mechanical bits off-road, and white-knuckle handling characteristics both on the road and in the snow should put this endearing European in third.”
In a First Drive review of the refreshed G550, we liked the power from the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 and the decent ride quality, but the on-road driving dynamics are poor. We enjoyed the G-Glass’ luxury and said, “Part of the G-Wagen’s mountain-crushing weight is all the sound-deadening material they’ve crammed into it over the years. Thanks to that it’s actually pretty comfortable and quiet inside despite the big tires, truck frame, and barn-inspired aerodynamic profile. The leather is absurdly rich for the vehicle, the seats are comfortable and supportive.”
