Mercedes-Benz G-Class Gets Road Testing

Mercedes-Benz is preparing the newly caught on shots G-Class for an official debut at the 2017 Frankfurt debut, the model coming fully-tweaked with the latest mechanics, slightly improved design and some new engines taken from the rest of the company`s new models.

Even if the G-Class is wearing full camouflage, it will be ready just in time for the Frankfurt show. At the exterior, the model will get some slight updates, meaning revised LED lights, front and rear bumpers, and bigger wheels.

Inside, the cabin will also receive bigger seats, better quality materials, along with new digital displays for the infotainment system, borrowed from the C-Class. In terms of safety features, the model will benefit the best services.

From a mechanical point of view, the Mercedes G-Class will come with custom front suspension with updated setup which will improve the car`s aerodynamics, adding a four-link setup and new electromechanical steering system.

The new G-Class will also stand on the company`s new chassis, which will use steel and aluminum composites, and making it around 300 kg lighter than the previous generation. This also means enough space inside for all passengers and their luggage, as well as a wide range of high-performance engines.

Speaking about performance, the new Mercedes G-Class will come with the new 3.0-liter petrol and diesel engines, the same that will be found on the new E-Class, featuring a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic transmission and improved fuel-efficiency and low CO2 emissions.

The AMG versions will receive the high-performance 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, with power figures to be unveiled at a later date.
