Model News

The G-Class AMG is no longer available for 2012. The standard G-Class gets a new, optional "Edition Select" package.


Value Writeup

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class--otherwise known as the G-wagen or Gelandewagen--is unique in the market as a serious, truck-like mountain goat. While not always the most practical for family needs, the G has toughness for the trail, a comfortable enough ride for the freeway and enough exclusivity to hold its own at the country club. Having been adapted by militaries around the world since the 1980s, the G-Wagon has tremendous all-road tough-truck credibility as well.


Model Highlights

The G-Class is powered by a 382-horsepower, 5.5L V8. The G55 can dash to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds, according to Mercedes-Benz. Fuel economy isn't stellar, but it's reasonable considering what the G-Class was built for: 12 mpg city and 15 highway.

Thanks to a serious mechanical 4-wheel-drive system, complemented by modern electronics, the G-Class has the goods for serious off-roading as well as simply taking on slippery road conditions. The system comes with three differential locks to distribute power in whatever way is best for the conditions. On- or off-road, traction is aided by the electronic stability control system, which also helps distribute power left to right.

The G-Class is an old-style, truck-like SUV in look and feel, yet its interior is appointed with top-notch luxury materials, including premium leather, burl walnut trim and wood and leather trim elsewhere.

Inside, the G-Class provides a very upright driving position that's quite different than in any other vehicle from the brand's lineup; back seats have enough room for adults, but they're not as easily reconfigurable for cargo compared to most modern SUVs. Also, the back door is hinged on the side rather than the top.

Cruise control, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, rear heated seats and a parking assistant are included with the G-Class, as well as a heated steering wheel and heated and ventilated multi-contour front seats. There's also a premium, 610-watt harman/kardon audio system that also features an SD memory card slot, iPod connectivity and Sirius satellite radio and HD radio tuners. The navigation system includes a 40-GB hard drive as well as live traffic info and Zagat restaurant ratings.

The G-Class gets a new "Edition Select" package for 2012. It includes items previously only available on the AMG model-- flared fenders, special twin exhaust, a leather dashboard, door sills, floor mats and various unique interior trim items.
