2019 Mercedes G-Class Interior Leaked: High-Tech But Not Afraid To Get Dirty

A series of photos showing the new dashboard of the 2019 G-Class before the official reveal went online, revealing what’s changed.

If you followed our previous scoops on the new G-Class, then the changes should come as no surprise. The new dashboard does a good job at integrating Mercedes’ latest wide-display tech without altering too much the character of the interior which doesn’t try to hide its utilitarian roots as displayed by the grab handle in front of the passenger and its sober lines.

Replacing an icon isn’t that easy but Mercedes appears to have figured out how to give the world a new G-Class, without messing too much with the ingredients that made it so popular in the first place.

The images come courtesy of Dutch Autoweek. The 2019 G-Class will come with modern switchgear known from other models in the range while adopting circular air-vents. The three switches for locking the corresponding differentials remain between the two central air-vents and the new three-spoke steering wheel is the same one fitted in the latest S-Class.

And while the dummy display model features classic analog gauges for the driver, it’s almost certain that future G-Class customers will be offered a digital option as well, same with those offered in other models.

The new generation G-Class is expected to look largely unchanged from the current model but the update is much more significant under the skin. Mercedes has given the 2019 G-Class not only a wider ladder chassis and a new independent suspension for better road manners but adaptive dampers as well.

The model’s new electrical architecture also means that the G-Class will come with a full range of the latest assistance systems that not only increase safety and comfort but also make it a lot more competent when the asphalt stops.

As for when we’ll finally see the new G-Class being revealed, the latest reports talk about Mercedes debuting its new cult off-roader at the Detroit Motor Show this January.

    It looks cheap in these pics like it could be in a Wrangler

    • Bash

      You could be right, this could be the base model or something, as sure it will feature at least wood grain on the steering wheel, that will make it look more upscale.

      • Moveon Libtards

        There should not be a shitty “base model” in a $120,000 + vehicle.

        No excuses, it is crap.

        • Bash

          True, unless there is not a luxury trim, i mean one that is focused basically on off roading and getting -you know- dirty and muddy.

    • Nordschleife

      Still looks more expensive than the X-Class. Maybe it the aluminum on the dashboard.

  • Hockeyman

    Current one is a better one! 🙁

  • Christian Wimmer

    Honestly, I prefer the current G-Class interior from a design point of view.

    Maybe I will change my mind when I see the new interior in person…

  • Craig

    Complete with four kitchen sink drains.

      Ha!! yep, funny, but you know what? For an upright SUV-ish type of instrument panel, personally, I quite like it. Good integration of the screens IMHO.

      • Moveon Libtards

        Hey, you know what, it looks like crap and maybe only viable on a cheap Toyota.


        • Knotmyrealname

          You mean awful.

  • nastinupe

    Looks like it could go into a Honda CRV. No impressed.

    • Eythan Aldrich

      you mean not impressed? that’s not how you say it….

      • nastinupe

        Wow really!!! Thank you for the English lesson. I’ll let my iPhone know next time it autocorrects. But we don’t need that, we have you. Now go around the rest of the internet looking for letters missing off of words and point them out.

        • Knotmyrealname

          ‘nasti’ by name, ‘nasti’ by nature.

        • Eythan Aldrich

          LMAO XD

          • Moveon Libtards

            …Okay, ETHAN…


      • Moveon Libtards

        From a guy who spells “Ethan” as “Eythan.”

        Oh, boy….

        • Eythan Aldrich

          that’s not a misspell……..that’s the real deal but with a silent “y” and from manila that’s why

  • PK


  • salamOOn

    well, thats terrible.


    I’m just waiting for the next AMG model.

  • KSegg

    G-Wagen went from classy to……………..trashy.

    Good job MB.

  • Tom

    I don’t know about you but my wranglers interior certainly doesn’t look that good

    • Moveon Libtards

      I don’t know, but my Wrangler is 1/4 the price of this G-wagon and the next gen Wrangler is out in a month and looks more classy inside.

  • Tom

    I think The aluminum air vents looks much better than plastic

  • Bob

    Well… atleast the iPad is gone.

  • botornot387

    Looks incredibly cheap. Actually prefer the hefty button current interior

  • Enter Ranting

    The exterior looks like a toaster oven.

  • Six_Tymes

    the silver will show dirt around the vents, and look nasty after years of usage. the layout is ok, but i’m blown away by it. but maybe in person it will look better.

  • Mynameis Taylor

    I like the new dash

  • MarketAndChurch

    I really like it.

  • SteersUright

    Its primarily the cheap looking silver piece that surrounds all the air vents and extends from side to side, that detracts from this interior. It looks like silver painted plastic and totally out of place for a vehicle of this price.

  • Petrol26

    It looks great how they mirrored the design theme of the cars headlights around the airvents. The round vent sits in the same kind of square surface as the round headlights do in the front of the car. There is still missing the whole middleconsole, maybe the overall impression will be better if its complete.

  • Moveon Libtards

    That is aweful!

    Look at the 15-year old Toyota grey car plastics…This is a $120K+ vehicle??????? Maybe in Africa is looks cool to the locals.

    Sorry, the new gen 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is going to destroy this thing for half the price.
