Forget the CGIs released three months ago, the Little D. and Little G. Jimnys are now real and spectacular.
The Suzuki Jimny has officially become a cheap Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
Order books for the latest Mercedes G350d are now open, with first deliveries coming this summer.
It’s also more refined than its predecessor, while improving in other departments as well, such as power, interior space and build quality.
Few owners will get their Mercedes-Benz G-Class to bathe in mud, unfortunately.
European markets get the new G-Class with the 282 hp straight-six turbo diesel (OM 656); it’s not coming to the U.S., though.
Based on the previous Mercedes-AMG G63, it’s limited to 10 examples and costs at least €209,000, without taxes.
While reviewing the new G-Class, Doug DeMuro found that Mercedes have addressed pretty much everything that was wrong with the old model.
With the Desert Storm Satin finish and Blood Bath red wheels, this G550 looks like it belongs in the window of a candy shop.
Fans with smaller budgets can opt for the 2019 G 550 which has a base price of $124,500.
Japanese tuner will turn the Suzuki Jimny into a mini version of either the G-Class or the Defender.
It features some of Mercedes’ latest on-board tech, such as the 12.3-inch dual screen setup and 64-color ambient lighting.
