Off-road, Unlimited – the all-new Mercedes-Benz G-Class

Off-road driving characteristics, even better performance thanks to electrification

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has long been regarded as an automotive icon and is now once again underpinning its leading position among luxury off-road vehicles. The all-new models excel under all conditions – with improved performance thanks to electrified drive systems, modern driver assistance systems, increased comfort and advanced digitalisation.

Established in 1979, the model series now offers the most diverse drive portfolio of all time and almost limitless customisation options. At the same time, it retains its unmistakable off-road character and unique appearance.

Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Chief Technology Officer said: “The all-new G-Class raises the bar for real adventure on and off the road yet again.

"With an electrified drive portfolio, our pioneering MBUX infotainment system and additional comfort and off-road functions, it’s poised to continue its success story as THE Geländewagen. The all-new G-Class combines an outstanding driving experience with a state-of-the-art digital experience.”

The all-new G-Class sets standards in the off-road segment

The off-road icon is based on the tried-and-tested ladder-frame concept and features three mechanical differential locks and LOW RANGE off-road gear reduction as well as a rigid rear axle and independent front suspension.

High ground clearance and long-travel suspension form the basis for the off-road characteristics of the all-new G‑Class. The numbers speak for themselves:

Up to 100% gradeability on suitable surfaces

  • Ground clearance between the axles of at least 241 mm

  • Maximum fording depth of 70 cm for water and mud

  • Stable driving on sideward slopes of up to 35°

  • Approach and departure angles of 31° at the front and 30° at the rear (without trailer hitch)

Off the beaten track, the new OFFROAD COCKPIT provides an overview of the relevant data for off-road driving in both the driver and media displays, as well as functions to support off-road driving.

The all-new G-Class is more versatile than ever before

In addition to the all-new performance off-roader from Mercedes-AMG, the all-new Mercedes-Benz G 450 d (combined energy consumption: 10.0-8.7 l/100 km | combined CO₂ emissions: 261-227 g/km | CO2 class: G)[1] and the all-new Mercedes-Benz G 500 (combined energy consumption: 12.3-10.9 l/100 km | combined CO₂ emissions: 281-248 g/km | CO2 class: G)2 are also available to choose from.

All engines are now fully electrified. As mild hybrids with 48-volt technology, they offer increased performance with reduced fuel consumption. The first fully electric variant of the G-Class will round out the model portfolio at a later date.

The new G-Class evolves with the times and yet remains true to itself

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has not significantly changed its appearance for around 45 years. The exterior design of the all-new models is only subtly modified. Visible changes include a radiator grille with four instead of the previous three horizontal louvres and front and rear bumpers.

The front bumpers have a renewed squircle look. New A-pillar cladding and a spoiler lip on the roof edge contribute to improved aerodynamics and increased acoustic comfort.

The interior is luxurious and functional. With the integration of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system, the all-new G-Class is more digital than ever before.

On request, KEYLESS-GO, temperature-controlled cupholders, the Burmester® 3D surround sound system and MBUX High-End Rear-Seat Entertainment system ensure increased comfort.

There are also additional and enhanced safety and assistance systems. The MANUFAKTUR range for extensive customisation of the interior and exterior has been expanded once again.
