THE REDESIGNED 2019
Everything's changed. Except its character.
How do you follow up an icon? By not following anything but what made it an icon in the first place: Authentic design born of genuine capability, an unwavering sense of adventure, and a timelessly modern shape that's ready for what's next.
True to form. True to function.
While nearly every component of the G is new, its character carries over intact. So do a handful of its crown jewels, including the beloved door handles that operate with bank-vault precision. Only now they lead to a spacious, ultramodern cabin.
Crafted by loving hands. Built to outlive any trend.
Exquisitely crafted, still almost entirely by hand, the G advances without abandoning its principles. Its ladder frame is stronger yet lighter. And its appointments are richer, from natural woods to 64-colour LED ambient lighting.
Perpetually fresh. Not frozen in time.
Familiar details take a fresh step. The classic round headlamps integrate active LED technology. The sunroof is now heat-rejecting glass. And while the body is larger, its manoeuvrability is improved both off-road and in town.
More spacious. More special. Welcome to the great indoors.
The cabin provides more space for your buddies, your belongings, and even your beverages. Seating options include a range of hand-fitted leathers and a hot-stone massage. Acoustic glass and 3-zone climate control are standard. 
Unmistakably a G. Uniquely your own.
Dozens of gloss and matte paint colors, numerous 19-inch and 20-inch wheels, and a choice of Sport Package or Night Package styling options let you start your G-Class adventure when it's being crafted. Where you take it is up to you.
After 40 years of conquering terrain on every continent, the G-Class journey advances. Along with its signature 4-wheel drive and three lockable differentials, virtually every measure of its off-road ability, from climbing to fording depth, is improved.
Confident in any corner. Of the earth, or the road.
A new independent double-wishbone suspension, rigid rear axle and electric power steering sharpen on-road precision while enhancing its capability off-road and comfort anywhere. A multimode suspension offers adjustable damping.
The power to accelerate progress.
Generating 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, the advanced biturbo V8 can thrust the G 550 from 0 to 100 in just 5.9 seconds. Along with numerous racing-derived features, its CAMTRONIC system can save fuel by seamlessly deactivating cylinders.
Wider range of gears. Unmatched range of talents.
A new 9-speed transmission is sportier, smoother and more efficient. With a 2-speed transfer case, it offers one of the industry's widest gear spans. The driving modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you fine-tune the G's performance.
Within the timeless body is a state-of-the-art cockpit, with standard and available technologies from dual 12.3-inch displays, intuitive steering-wheel Touch Controls, and voice control for the navigation, audio and numerous comfort features.
Panoramic cockpit. Elevated moods.
Change the cabin to suit your mood, or start a new one: An elaborate multizone LED ambient lighting system lets you choose among 64 colours, as well as a variety of motifs featuring two, five, or even slowly changing hues.
Classic style, cutting-edge tech. The eyes have it.
Classically shaped lamps feature brilliant advances. MULTIBEAM LED headlamps adapt to darkness, curves and vehicles ahead. LED Daytime Running Lamps encircle each unit. Even the fender-top turn signals and taillamps employ 100% LEDs.
More protective in nature. Or wherever you take it.
The new G looks out for its occupants with a suite of safety advancements. Standard driver assists include Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC cruise control, and Traffic Sign Assist. 
Helpful connections. To help set you free.
From the everyday to the unexpected, the new Mercedes me connect helps ease your way. You can control vehicle features from your smartphone. Get help in an emergency. Set up a service appointment. And more, all at no charge for three years, or even longer for many services. You can also add in-car WiFi for a low monthly rate.
