Mercedes-Benz G-Class video preview

Mercedes-Benz G-Class video preview

See what it looked like to reveal the all-new G in style at the well-known Michigan Theatre last night. Note details like the external door-hinges, external front turn signals, tailgate-mounted spare tire and the plastic protective strip running the length of the body.

The wheel arches and bumpers now form a more integral part of the body. Now measuring 4715mm long and 1881mm wide, it is still more compact than its Range Rover rival, which measures 4999mm by 1983mm. Mercedes-AMG is said to be dropping the G65 V12 version on the G-Wagen with this generation and the variant is expected to make way for a new hybrid.

Mercedes-Benz Australia will also bring in a diesel-powered version before the end of the year, priced close to the current model's $165,000. While the redesigned driver's instrument panel retains analogue dials as standard, a digital display is available on the options list. A "G-Mode" setting automatically activates when the differential locks or low-range gear is selected. Front elbow room has grown by 2.7-inches and rear elbow room is 2.2-inches more. Front legroom is 1.5-inches longer and rear legroom grows by 5.9-inches. However, the styling is subtly sleeker than any previous G-Wagen.

The automaker has finally introduced an all-new G-Class that looks a lot like the old one, but is a very modern military-inspired machine.

Yet, it's definitely not all about creature comforts as it can still perform admirably off road.

He concluded: "Directors are historically pretty oblivious to the interpersonal things on their set, because they're so focused". Read the full Facebook post for her complete story, but be warned that it describes her experience in complete detail.

G-class has been coveted by everyone from the Pope to the Shah of Iran and has seen sales increase in the US for the last four years.

The new suspension has been developed with AMG. By raising the axles, the G-Class now has a ground clearance of 241 mm between the axles, up by 6 mm. The vehicle can ford water up to 27.6-inches deep, has a breakover angle of 26-degrees, departure angle of 30-degrees, and approach angle of 31-degrees. The new front independent suspension and solid rear ones are also quite nice.

The ladder-frame chassis has been reworked to improve stiffness and the suspension now bolts directly to it, rather than using a subframe. If the optional Adaptive Damping System is included, drivers also can modify damping characteristics in the Sport and Comfort modes using the Dynamic Select switch. With three different drive modes, the steering effort can be varied for particular terrain and traffic situations. You also get three locking differentials to help out with really hard terrain, and of course, a low-range gearbox.

New electromechanical rack-and-pinion steering should be a significant upgrade from the outgoing G-Class' seemingly wooden recirculating ball setup. It also allows for the implementation of driving assistance systems such as Parking Assist. It has been specifically adapted to meet the needs of the vehicle, says Mercedes, with reduced shift and response times.

The Mercedes G-Class dates back to 1979 when the then-utilitarian off-roader first went on sale.
