2018 G-Class SUV

G-Class SUV

Crafted to go the distance.

2018 G-Class Design

Design

Created to conquer challenges on six continents, the 39-year evolution of the G-Class keeps elevating the pinnacle of refinement. From its advanced lighting to its classic upright shape, its purposeful elegance is both unmistakable and irrefutable. Every surface of the G-Class reflects its confident capability on any surface of the earth.


2018 G-Class Design

Built like no other SUV.

Its sturdy ladder frame and galvanized steel body are hand-welded. The frame is flowed with hot wax to resist corrosion. Even its wiring harnesses are hand-loomed. It takes more than 40 hours to craft each G-Class virtually entirely by hand. Beyond strength, more than quality, how a G-Class comes to life bestows it with unwavering character.

2018 G-Class Design

Matched by eye, unmatched by anything.

Exquisitely handcrafted cabin appointments offer an enticing palette of personalization: A selection of Nappa leathers, in a variety of styles, colors and stitching details. Six hand-finished cabin trims in rich wood or carbon fiber. And a spectrum of paintwork, from classically elegant to colorfully expressive.

2018 G-Class Performance

Performance

As you make your way off-road, three sequentially lockable differentials offer increasingly masterful capability. Each differential can be locked in sequence (center, rear, then front) via a set of buttons on the dash, to help maintain the ideal balance of torque and traction for the situation. [1]


2018 G-Class Performance

Attitude at any latitude.

An advanced V8 biturbo engine generates 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque from a compact 4.0 litres of displacement. Able to thrust the G 550 from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds, it features a "hot inside V" turbo layout, patented low-friction NANOSLIDE cylinder walls, and an ECO Start/Stop system. [2]

2018 G-Class Performance

Unwavering confidence in any season.

The standard G-Class permament all-wheel drive system continually sends power to all four wheels. Its 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS) instantly apportions torque to the wheels that can use it best, for surefooted grip on snowy and wet roads. Off-road, its locking differentials help you conquer muddy, loose or uneven terrain. [3]

It'll take you to extremes. And back again.

Timeless, meet fearless. With nerves of hand-welded steel, the G 550 4×4-squared heightens every measure of G-Class capability. Gear-driven portal axles and 22-inch wheels create 438 mm of ground clearance. Dual spring-struts and a quarter-metre of added track conquer extreme terrain, yet they let you enjoy its lavish cabin on any road.

2018 G-Class Performance

Horsepower in your hands.

There are only two handcrafted SUVs with handcrafted power, and they both start with G: the 563-hp V8 biturbo AMG G 63 and 621-hp V12 biturbo AMG G 65. A single master craftsman hand-builds each vehicle's engine. It's teamed with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7-speed and 20-inch or 21-inch AMG wheels, and wrapped in exquisite luxury.

2018 G-Class Technology

Technology

Technological teamwork helps make driving safer and easier. Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC cruise control uses radar to adapt your speed to the traffic flow, even stop-and-go. Blind Spot Assist, a rearview camera and Active Parking Assist help you sense your surroundings, for added safety when changing lanes or manoeuvring in tight quarters. [4]


2018 G-Class Technology

Thoughtful technology, for extreme conditions.

From electric heating of the windshield, side mirrors and rear window to four heated seats, a G-Class starts to dispel winter's harshness even before the engine warms up. And from Climate Comfort and multicontour front seats to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, all standard, you'll find new ways to enjoy your G-Class year-round. [5]

2018 G-Class Technology

Comprehensive entertainment, expert guidance.

Advanced entertainment, navigation and communication systems work with intuitive ease in the G-Class. Bluetooth® lets you make calls hands-free and play music cable-free. The elegant central controller and color displays put a world of features within easy reach. Available Rear Seat Entertainment brings first-rate video to the second row. [6]
