The New 2018 Mecedes Benz G-Class: In-dept Review, Features and Pictures

- Advertisement -

From its all new suspension system to the additional interior space, Mercedes Benz has gone to great length in improving the features of its leading high end model, the g-class.

The 2018 model of the g-class is in a world of its own when it comes to features both in its interior and under the hood. These mind blowing improvements have made the 2018 Mercedes Benz g550 a masterpiece on wheel.

Engine

Powering the G550 base model is a 416-hp, 450-lb-ft of torque twin-turbo V-8 that delivers an EPA-rated 13/14 mpg city/highway. The same engine powers the lifted G550 4×42 model, but that version delivers 11/11 mpg.

The AMG G63 is powered by 5.5-liter V-8 that churns out 563 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque and is rated at 12/14 mpg. The range-topping AMG G65 packs a big 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 that produces a whopping 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque and delivers 11/13 mpg.

The already-capable off-road wagon has been made even more so with a new ladder-frame chassis, independent suspension with double-wishbone front axle and a rigid rear axle, three 100-percent locking differentials and low-range gear ratios as standard. It also has an extra 100mm of fording depth (now 700mm deep) over the previous model; and an extra 6mm of ground clearance (now 241mm).

Approach angle has increased by 1 degree to 31; and ramp-over has increased 1 degree to 26.

Interior

2018 Mecedes Benz G-Class

The new g-class is significantly different looking inside and larger in all dimensions except height, and the latest technology from the marque’s most innovative models feature in this major step forward.

Even in base specification, the new G-Class has a premium feel. Both front and rear seats are heated and finished in a choice of black, brown or beige leather trim with driver’s side memory function.

Dash and door panels feature open-pore wood, metal or carbon fibre trims and a new 12.3-inch centrally-mounted infotainment system with the latest Command 5.5 software that is hooked up to a seven-speaker sound system with DAB+, satellite navigation and Apple CarPlay.

Analogue instrument panel remains in the base model with ‘tube look’ dials though a dual 12.3-inch virtual instrument display, borrowed from the new E- and S-Class, can be optioned.

The system is controlled by the same Command controller system located in the centre console but can also be navigated via controls on the new steering wheel.

The buttons are touch sensitive, responding to swiping motions, and communicate to the driver with haptic and audio feedback, so hands don’t need to leave the wheel.

The addition of a rotary and button infotainment controller in the G-Class for the first time also necessitated the automatic gearshift lever move to a column mounted ‘Direct Select’ stalk – in-line with other Mercedes models – along with the inclusion of an electronic park brake.

Pros

  • Excellent off-roader
  • Powerful engines
  • Premium cabin materials
  • High fuel consumption
  • Very luxurious

Cons

  • Subpar on-road handling
  • Average cargo space
  • Very expensive
