The All-New Mercedes-Benz G-Class: What We Know So Far


The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has long been regarded as an automotive icon, 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.

“The all-new G-Class raises the bar for a real adventure on and off the road. With an electrified drive portfolio, our pioneering MBUX infotainment system, 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.”

Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Chief Technology Officer

The off-road icon is based on the tried-and-tested ladder-frame concept. It features three mechanical differential locks, a LOW RANGE off-road gear reduction, a rigid rear axle, and an 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% gradability 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 and functions to support off-road driving.

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) 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. Mild hybrids with 48-volt technology offer increased performance and reduced fuel consumption. The first fully electric variant of the G-Class will round out the model portfolio later.

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 improve aerodynamics and increase acoustic comfort.

The interior is luxurious and functional. Integrating the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system makes the all-new G-Class more digital. On request, KEYLESS-GO, temperature-controlled cupholders, the Burmester® 3D surround sound system, and the MBUX High-End Rear-Seat Entertainment system ensure increased comfort.

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