At the point when Mercedes-Benz initially presented the Gelandewagen in 1979 as a rough go-anyplace go 4×4 romping utility vehicle, few could have envisioned it developing into one of the world’s most impossible grown-up toys. Be that as it may, it did, and in light of that double legacy immovably, the all-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz G 550 appeared at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.
This is the principal completely overhauled G-Class since the first bowed 40 years back, various updates and moves up to the first in any case. The new G-Class grasps its double job of rough terrain ruler and on-street extravagance SUV lead with zeal. Under the new sheetmetal are three 100-percent locking differentials, a strong back hub, vigorously explained twofold wishbone front suspension, and another G rough terrain driving mode to enable you to handle the most tough landscape you can consider. In any case, the all-new skeleton is likewise tuned for solace, and the inside is as lavish as anything you could seek after. Assembled it, and the new G-Class gives you a chance to handle the zombie end times in style.
Put the new G-Class beside the old G-Class and it’s difficult to differentiate. The most clear changes are to the grille, headlights and taillights, however you may require a measuring tape to welcome the full extent of the changes. The new G-Class brags an extra 1.6-inches wheelbase, 2.1 creeps of length, and 4.8 crawls of width. Be that as it may, Mercedes-Benz held all the first’s styling signs: Upright structure, outside mounted entryway pivots, level glass, surface-mounted hood, et cetera.
The thing that matters is inside
Inside it’s a very different story, with the old-school inside of the past model hurled aside for something that watches straight out of the organization’s lead S-Class car. The instrument board is a solitary sheet of glass lodging two showcases, one for the measures and one for the COMAND infotainment show. A controller on the inside comfort offers a handle or a touch surface with haptic criticism to control the infotainment framework. The new air vents should mirror the state of the round LED headlights, yet to us they look more like the admission for a stream motor. The sewed dash, stitched cowhide, and metallic-complete catches and changes are straight from the Mercedes-Benz top of the line configuration book, and the organization guarantees the “best top notch” materials all through. On a more useful note, everybody gets more space, particularly in the back, where travelers get an additional 5.9 crawls of legroom. The extra width implies additional shoulder room and space in front and back too.
Until further notice, there’s solitary one motor: a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 416 strength and 450 lb-ft of torque, basically a similar motor accessible in the present G 550. Driving every one of the four wheels through another 9-speed programmed transmission, the G-Class sounds like your average present day family-situated SUV. Be that as it may, the low-extend, three locking differentials, and exceptional G-mode rough terrain setting in the drive mode framework implies the new G 550 is flawlessly fit rough terrain.
Costs haven’t been declared, yet don’t anticipate that them will be lower than the present G 550’s sticker of about $125,000. We’ll discover more, and get in the driver’s seat, at some point among now and when the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G 550 goes on special in the not so distant future.
