Mercedes-Benz’s Wider, More High Tech Next-Gen G-Class Travels In Pairs

Two mules of the next generation Mercedes-Benz G-Class have been scooped testing together.

The vehicles carry an identical body wrap, but being test mules, it doesn’t really matter. Still, the new model is expected to carry a visually similar squared off design to the original model.

While the exterior will make it instantly recognizable as a G-Class, inside, it will please tech fans with a large infotainment display akin to the E-Class and S-Class, as well as all the latest comfort features.

Those looking to take it out on challenging slopes will be glad to hear that the next generation will retain its body-on-frame architecture, but will be wider than its predecessor. Despite the increased size, it will also be lighter, with some sources suggesting that it may shed as much as 400 kg (900 lbs).

Set to be produced by Magna in Graz, Austria, where it is believed to share the same assembly lines with the non-AMG versions of the current iteration, the all-new Mercedes-Benz G-Class will come with a variety of petrol and diesel engines, possibly including a hybrid model, likely topped by two AMG-badged models with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and a twin-turbocharged V12.
