2013 Mercedes-Benz G-Class
The restyled 2013 Mercedes-Benz G-Class comes with the new interior styling characterized by high quality finished with exquisite materials, and the instrument cluster and center console have been completely redesigned. Other standard features include the latest COMAND infotainment system featuring mbrace2, including a navigation system and internet access. New LED daytime driving lamps and new exterior mirrors bring a few discreet changes to the exterior appearance of the luxury off-roader. New standard safety features include the addition of Blind Spot Assist, the parking aid PARKTRONIC and the adaptive cruise control system DISTRONIC PLUS. A new addition to the range is the 2013 G63 AMG with an eight-cylinder biturbo engine and the ECO stop/start system as standard. The new Mercedes-Benz G-Class will go on sale in the U.S this August.

The Mercedes G-Class today is considered the top model among luxury-class cross-country vehicles, and has provided the gene pool for other very successful SUVs built under the Mercedes-Benz brand. The G-Class has been voted off¬roader of the year countless times over the past years, most recently this year.

A comprehensive range of features ensures that this classic cross-country vehicle remains in a class of its own in the off-road sector.

The external modifications include LED daytime running lamps and new exterior mirrors. The AMG version also features a new, characteristic AMG radiator grille with double louvers, plus distinctive new bumpers with large air intakes. Red brake calipers and 20-inch wheels, available here for the first time, complement the emotive appeal of its exterior.

The instrument panel and center console have been completely redesigned to include new controls and generously proportioned, exclusively designed trim elements. These give the interior of the SUV a fresh, premium look. Drivers will now find a TFT color display in the instrument cluster between the two round gauges. A large color screen, conveniently positioned in the center, is part of the COMAND system and incorporates a DVD changer and the standard COMAND Controller. This new infotainment system offers, amongst other features, a navigation system with special additional off-road functions, voice-operated controls and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. In order to ensure that the Mercedes-Benz G-Class nevertheless does not lose any of its character, certain specific design elements in the interior have been preserved. The Mercedes G-Class retains the grab handle on the front-passenger side, the switches for the three differential locks – clearly aligned within the driver’s field of vision and highlighted in silver trim – and the redesigned shift lever in the lower section of the center console. New standard safety features include DISTRONIC PLUS, Blind Spot Assist and the parking aid PARKTRONIC with reversing camera. The ESP® system has been completely revised and now includes Trailer Stability Assist and a HOLD function.

The available engines for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G-Class include the powerful 5.5-litre V8 gasoline engine in the G550, which has an output of 388 hp and offers excellent torque of 391 lb-ft. The engine is mated to the familiar 7-speed automatic transmission. This sixth generation of the stepped automatic transmission that has been developed and produced by Mercedes-Benz since 1960 has once again been thoroughly revised, and optimized with regard to both consumption and comfort.

New to the range is the Mercedes G63 AMG with V8 biturbo engine with 544 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque, which features the ECO stop/stop system as standard.

The technical qualities of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class continue to be highly prized. The tremendous torque of its engines makes the luxury off-roader an excellent vehicle for towing, while its three electrically controlled 100-percent differential locks, ladder frame and rigid axle characteristics make it an unrivalled proposition in rough, off-road terrain.
