When we throwback into the past, we will find an interesting story about the G-Class SUV. Shah of Iran wanted to see one of the best military cross-country vehicles street legal. However, to develop it for everyday use, German carmaker needed years of innovating and testing various technologies. The crossover finally came out in 1979. Now, 40 years later, the same company is surprising us with 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon.
The SUV impossible to stop. You can show it off on city streets, but the real impression about the vehicle comes off the road. Owners of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon are going to be able almost to dive with it. This vehicle can go into the 27-inch deep water. Also, it is not strange if you see it climb and crawl on steep slopes. All in all, this ex-military vehicle is now available for the everyday drive. However, a pocket needs to be deeper to purchase 2019 G-Class crossover.
2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon First Impressions
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon was one of the stars of North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Trucks and crossovers stole the attention this year, and best among the bests is MB crossover. It shows class, but also a portion of the old-school design, and modern solutions. All in all, it will be interesting to see this model in production.
However, the German company won’t release it in next couple of months. We can bet now that the price will definitely go over $120k. It definitely can’t be cheaper than the existing model. With some upgrades, we can see it now over $130,000, while the top of the range trims will be closer to $200k, or higher. That is, of course, the price for an AMG version.
2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon Styling
Unchanged and predictable are words needed to describe the design of 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon. The new SUV keeps the heritage with its boxy look, while gently implementing modern features. The balance between these two must be perfect. That is the main reason for the G-Class’ long life.
The Geladenwagen is almost the same as its predecessor, In the matter of fact, if we check the previous editions, everything is the same. The strong appearance comes as the box on the wheels gets some updates on bumpers and lighting system. Also, the upcoming SUV is longer than it was (2 inches) and wider (5 inches).
Legroom for passengers on the rear seats gains a bonus with the enlarged vehicle. However, drivers will be the happiest persons in the cabin. They will get impressions of both classic and modern driving. Old school details in combination with modern digital screens are bingo. Round analog dials are still there in a pair. But, it is now mated to a new MBUX info-entertaining system.
2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon Engine Options
At this moment, we can say that only 4.0-liter V-8 engine is almost certain for 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon. All other details about the powertrains are only rumors. Whatsoever, it is likely that G-Class will come exclusively with this V-8 unit, rather than V-6, or any other drivetrain.
