Has the Mercedes G-Class Undergone Significant Updates in its Mid-Life Refresh?

Mercedes introduces a mid-life refresh for the G-Class lineup, marking the second update for this generation. The iconic SUV now boasts mild-hybrid engine options across its range, along with several other subtle enhancements.

Powertrain Enhancements:
The G-Class receives a power boost with the introduction of mild-hybrid technology. The entry-level model, now named G450d, features a 3.0-litre straight-six diesel engine coupled with a 48V integrated starter generator, delivering 357hp and 750Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the G500 sees improvements with its 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder petrol engine, now generating 436hp.

Exterior Updates:
Subtle exterior changes include a refreshed front bumper, radiator grille, and rounded A-pillars, aimed at enhancing aerodynamic efficiency and reducing NVH levels. Notably, the front-facing camera is now positioned lower for improved visibility, featuring a 'transparent bonnet' view.

Interior Upgrades:
Inside, the G-Class adopts the latest version of the MBUX infotainment system, incorporating a touchscreen interface for the first time. Additional features include temperature-controlled cup holders, wireless mobile charging, and keyless entry. The off-road 'control center' on the dashboard is also redesigned for easier access to essential functions.

Unchanged Off-Road Capability:
Despite the updates, the G-Class maintains its exceptional off-road prowess, boasting impressive ground clearance, wading depth, and angles of approach. With unchanged off-road stats, it continues to excel in challenging terrain.

AMG G63 Enhancements:
The high-performance AMG G63 benefits from a new active suspension system designed to enhance both on- and off-road performance. Additionally, it adopts 48V mild-hybrid technology, maintaining its formidable 585hp output while offering improved ride dynamics. Optional AMG Active Ride Control further enhances its handling capabilities.

Anticipated EQG EV SUV:
Further expansion of the G-Class lineup is expected with the introduction of the EQG EV SUV, reinforcing Mercedes' commitment to innovation and sustainability in the luxury SUV segment.
