The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an icon of power, engineering, and off-road dominance. Combining performance, luxury, and unique style, this model turns heads and can make any car aficionado fall in love. The new 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, which was recently unveiled at the Detroit auto show, carries through the bold looks and unstoppable character of the traditional G-Class while adding a host of new features to make this model even better. In this 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class comparison, we are going to look at some of the key enhancements on the new G-Class, and also what classic advantages are returning.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class will have a new biturbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine, but engine output will remain the same, at 416 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. This model will, however, be changing to a nine-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter, in contrast to the seven-speed transmission from the previous year. The 2019 G-Class will also be available with up to five driving modes via DYNAMIC SELECT.European Model Shown

Off-Road Capability on the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

While the classic, boxy look of this luxury all-terrain master will carry through into the new generation, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class will also be clearly different from the 2018 model even on first glance. This vehicle appears to be cast from a single piece, with seamless seam integration, for a sleek look that still appears prepared to conquer mountains.

Subtler differences will also deliver a better driving experience and enhanced interior comfort. When we compare the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs the 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the new model is longer, wider, and offers several off-road enhancements. It has added almost 4 inches of water and mud fording (with 27.6 inches total) and increased its breakover, and departure angles by one degree each. Passengers can also enjoy increased legroom, shoulder room, and elbow room in the front and the rear.

In addition to subtle changes in size and style, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class will now feature cutting-edge technology that has already graced models like the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class flagship sedan. Two 12.3-inch display screens beneath a single glass panel, a customizable driver cockpit, new LED headlights, and advanced driver assistance systems are some of the highlights.
