Mercedes-Benz G class

Segment: Large SUV

Drivetrain option(s): RWD/4WD

Powertrain(s): Gasoline


Redesign 2018

The 2019 G class, which will go on sale this year, is bigger, lighter and more luxurious than the outgoing version. The 2019 G class is 2.1 inches longer and 4.8 inches wider than its predecessor. With more extensive use of lightweight materials, the SUV has shed 375 pounds. The suspension a double-wishbone front axle combined with a rigid rear axle is the result of work between engineers at Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG. The base G class for the U.S. will continue to be the G 550 with a carryover 4.0-liter turbocharged V-8 engine. A new nine-speed automatic with a torque converter specifically adapted for off-road requirements also helps lower fuel consumption. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG G 63 is powered by a 4.0-liter biturbo V-8, good for 577 hp, and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The high-performance SUV will reach the U.S. by year end.
