Prices and specification revealed for revised G-Class

Mercedes-Benz has announced UK prices and specifications for the revised G-Class which is now available to order.

The luxury 4x4, which has its origins in the G-Wagen launched in 1979 and was re-introduced to the UK in right-hand drive in 2010, has been updated with the latest engine technology as well as improved comfort and safety.

Priced from £82,945 OTR for the G350 Bluetec, the G-Class has increased levels of standard equipment including new LED daytime running lights and a reworked interior that, for the first time, is fitted with COMAND Online.

Other standard features include Parktronic audio and visual parking aid and new leather upholstery in conjunction with heated front and rear seats. A new design of 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, electric folding and heated mirrors, instrument cluster with colour display and Harman Kardon Logic 7 surround sound audio system complete the changes.

The 3.0-litre V6 engine fitted to the G 350 Bluetec produces 211bhp (a 1bhp gain) and retains the same fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of the model it replaces – 25.2 mpg and 295 g/km respectively.

The new G63 AMG (replacing the G55 AMG) is priced at £123,115 OTR. Its hand built, bi-turbo 5.5-litre V8 AMG engine delivers 544bhp and 561lb-ftNm of torque – an improvement of 37bhp and 44lb-ft over the outgoing G55 AMG. The new V8 sees combined CO2 emissions reduced by 13% to 322g/km and combined fuel consumption improved by 15% to 20.5mpg.

Distinguishing the G63 AMG from the rest of the G-Class range is a unique AMG radiator grille with twin chrome fins running through the black mesh grille. The changes extend to a set of AMG wheel-arch extensions finished in the vehicle colour, a bespoke AMG sports exhaust system with chromed twin tailpipes and a new 20-inch five-twin-spoke alloy wheel design in titanium grey high-sheen finish, whle there are also specific AMG fittings and features inside.
