The indefatigable G-Class just got a fresh update to keep the groove going for the iconic model that has been around much longer than most of the people owning, driving, writing about and dreaming about them.

G-Class; the king of the rough yet with the ‘road presence’and luxirous ambience

 According to, the list of enhancements to the iconic Geländewagen is almost as long as its lifespan, but the most salient point here is the introduction of a new engine. The revised G550 introduces a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, based on the high-performance engine in the Mercedes-AMG GT and C63, but retuned: in this application, it produces 416 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque (compared to 453 hp and 440 lb-ft in the GT or 503 and 480 in the GT S). We’d expect that engine to gradually make its way into other models as well.

You wanna wade? No problem. The G’s got you covered.
Check on your precious metal mine? The G is the man for the job.

Unfortunately, this is where most end up; in the ‘jungle ‘of the cities.

 Though the G500 is the only one with a completely new unit, the other engines in the lineup have also been updated. The G350d bumps from 211 hp and 398 lb-ft to 245 hp and 442 lb-ft, the AMG G63 jumps from 536 hp to 563 (torque remains constant at 560 lb-ft), and the top-of-the-line, twelve-cylinder G65 (which we’ll be getting Stateside for the first time) now produces 621 hp and a massive 738 lb-ft. Those figures result in a 0-62 time of 8.9 seconds for the diesel, 5.9 for the G500, 5.4 for the G63 and 5.3 for the G65 – which are altogether mighty impressive for a vehicle as big and boxy as the G-Wagen. All but the G65 now feature stop/start systems to help reduce fuel consumption too.

Different new interiors

 Benz also revised the suspension tuning (while offering optional active dampers) and reprogrammed the ESP, ASR and ABS systems. Inside there’s a new instrument cluster, the non-AMG models get new bumpers and flared wheel arches, and there’s a bright new array of colors available for the AMG models, which can also be ordered in a new special Edition 463 featuring unique trim inside and out.

You can also order from a wide range of bright colours

So i know very soon these models will flood Nigerian roads. Yeah, we rock the automobile industry well well.
