Mercedes-Benz G Class #32

Mercedes-Benz prepares the G-Class for the future: Forever young

The legendary G-Class is entering its 27th year of production bristling with new energy. Even after its latest rejuvenation cure this classic cross-country vehicle still retains its striking figure and the highly robust foundations on which it has stood since 1979. In this most recent stage in its evolution, this ancestor of all Mercedes-Benz SUVs has acquired an ultra-modern diesel powerplant. The G 320 CDI has an output of 165 kW/224 hp, is fitted as standard with a diesel particulate filter and complies with the strict EU4 exhaust emission limits.
With its smooth power and torque development the new, light-alloy V6 engine pushes the fun factor of driving a “G” up yet another notch – both on and off-road. State-of-the-art, third-generation common-rail direct injection with piezo-electric injectors, four valves per cylinder and an exhaust gas turbocharger with electrically adjusted turbine vanes represent just a few of the highlights boasted by this efficient unit, which is partnered by the standard-fit seven-speed automatic transmission. 7G-TRONIC dovetails perfectly with the output potential of this diesel and promises excellent performance yet low fuel consumption. The new G 320 CDI manages to combine the advantages of its two predecessors, the G 270 CDI and G 400 CDI, offering the fuel efficiency of the 156 hp five-cylinder model while at the same time delivering the same sort of punchy performance as the 250 hp V8 diesel. It need hardly be said that the G 320 CDI complies with the current top emissions standard, EU4, and works in tandem with a standard-fit, maintenance-free diesel particulate filter that slashes particulate emissions by 99 percent without the need for any additives.

The classic among Mercedes-Benz off-roaders continues to offer a superior blend of efficient powertrain and handling dynamics systems. Standard specification includes permanent all-wheel drive with an off-road reduction gear plus the electronically controlled traction system 4ETS, the Electronic Stability Program ESP® and three differential locks which can be operated at the push of a button. The G-Class is built for Mercedes-Benz by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, and has been since 1979, the total production volume to date amounting to over 186,000 units.

And there is still no end in sight to this success story. In the next few years the “G” will continue to round off the line-up of efficient Mercedes-Benz SUVs, alongside the ML-Class and the new R-Class and GL-Class.

Three body versions, high level of specification

The new engine is available in conjunction with all three body versions, these being the two Station Wagons – with short and long wheelbases – and the luxurious Cabriolet with an electrohydraulically operated soft top. One thing all the versions have in common is the same high standard of equipment for which their predecessors were known. Among other things the G 320 CDI additionally offers 7G-TRONIC, bi-xenon headlamps and fog lamps with the cornering light function. The second-row seats of the four-door Station Wagon feature ISOFIX child seat attachment points. Also new are the scratch-resistant exterior paint colours calcite white, periclase green metallic and teallite blue metallic. The tough “ARTICO” interior package is available as an optional extra, including seats and door liners upholstered in highly hard-wearing yet breathable man-made leather which is particularly pleasant to the touch. The floor covering consists of robust, easy-care plastic.

The G-Class model series as a whole currently comprises three different engines. These are, apart from the G 320 CDI described here, the 296 hp G 500 petrol model with a V8 engine that is also teamed up with 7G-TRONIC, and the familiar top-of-the-range G 55 AMG supercharged V8, which has an output of 476 hp. All G-Class models are now being fitted with bi-xenon headlamps including fog lamps with the cornering light function.

The G 320 CDI can be ordered with immediate effect from Mercedes-Benz sales outlets and deliveries to customers will commence in September 2006. The previous diesel versions G 270 CDI and G 400 CDI, as well as the petrol-engined G 320 are now being discontinued.

G-Class: award-winning cross-country vehicle

Scarcely any other off-roader has won as many automotive awards as the G-Class. At the beginning 2006 the readers of the prestigious OFF ROAD magazine voted this evergreen “off-road vehicle of the year” in the “Classic” category. The readers of Germany’s “auto, motor und sport” magazine have voted it the world’s best off-roader no fewer than 13 times. Australia’s “bushdriver” magazine voted the G-Class the best 4x4 cross-country vehicle following its victory in the Paris-Dakar Rally in 1983. And in 1995 the readers of the German watersports periodical “Boote” (Engl. “Boats”) decided that the G-Class was the best towing vehicle. In 2003 the G-Class was dubbed “classic of the future” by the German “Motor Klassik” magazine.

Mercedes-Benz G-Class (2008)

Stuttgart – It has been the definitive cross-country vehicle since 1979. It has won the Paris-Dakar Rally, is deemed a worthy means of transport for the Pope, ranks as an automotive design icon, is a serial winner of readers' polls and constitutes the gene pool for a Mercedes-Benz SUV family that now numbers four model series in all. It is, of course – the G-Class. It has been in production for 29 years now, making the G-Class by far the longest-serving passenger car model series there has been since Mercedes-Benz came into existence in 1886. And its haul of superlatives is set to grow still further, because the G-Class is subject to continual updating that keeps it in touch with the very latest motoring technology. This time, once again, the exterior has only been modernised to a limited degree quite deliberately. The advances mainly centre on the vehicle's telematics, along with the new 5.5-litre V8 engine that is available for the G 500.
From the outside, the newest generation of the G-Class can be identified by its restyled, three-fin radiator grille, with the G 500 sporting new-look 18‑inch light-alloy wheels as an additional distinguishing feature. The model range continues to comprise three different body variants (short-wheelbase Station Wagon, long-wheelbase Station Wagon and Cabriolet), which are either powered by the fuel-efficient V6 CDI engine generating 165 kW/224 hp and 540 newton metres or a new, mighty 5.5-litre V8 petrol unit with an output of 285 kW/388 hp and 530 newton metres of torque. This new engine propels the G‑Class to sports-car-like performance*: the dash from 0 to 100 km/h is completed in just 5.9 seconds.
New telematics generation with useful extra functions
The latest edition of the G-Class is equipped with the advanced, more user-friendly generation of telematics technology. A Bluetooth hands-free system for mobile phones is built in as standard. A new media interface can also be specified as an option that allows an external music storage device to be linked up to the off-roader's on-board electronics and control system. Audio tracks appear in the instrument cluster and in the centre console's colour display, and can be simply called up by using the buttons on the multifunction steering wheel. The audio device's battery is recharged at the same time. The Audio 20 CD including a built-in six-disc CD changer is standard for the G 320 CDI models. This unit includes a dual tuner for superior radio reception, speed-sensitive volume control, as well as a keypad for entering telephone numbers and radio frequencies. There is also a Bluetooth interface which establishes a wireless connection between a mobile phone and the vehicle's hands-free system.
COMAND APS standard on G 500
All G 500 model versions feature the COMAND APS infotainment system with a built-in six-disc DVD changer. The system's specification includes hard-disc navigation with a tracking function outside digitised areas, telephone operation, plus a special off‑road menu. COMAND APS also incorporates the new LINGUATRONIC system with extended functionality. The voice-operated control now recognises whole-word commands, which can be spoken by anyone without the need to train the system first. The system is simply activated by means of a control on the right of the multifunction steering wheel. It can be used for making a call by saying the telephone number, controlling the audio system, calling up the global address book and operating the navigation system. COMAND APS may also be combined with the optional TV tuner and reversing camera.
There are other equipment options too: for the ultimate in listening pleasure there is the Harman Kardon® Logic7® surround sound system with 12 high-performance speakers and an output of 450 watts, while climatised seats offer enhanced seating comfort for the driver and front passenger.
G-Class: a success story that spans three decades
The classic Mercedes-Benz Cross-Country Vehicle serves up a majestic blend of high-performance powertrain and dynamic handling control systems. In addition to permanent all-wheel drive with a low-range ratio and the 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission, the standard specification includes the electronically controlled traction system 4ETS, the Electronic Stability Program ESP®, as well as three differential locks which can be engaged at the push of a button. Since Mercedes-Benz first commissioned Magna Steyr in the Austrian city of Graz to produce the G-Class in 1979, close on 200,000 have been built. And this enduring success story is far from over: the "G", as it is affectionately known, will continue to round off Mercedes-Benz's high-calibre line-up of SUVs alongside the GL, ML and GLK‑Class, and is due to celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2009.
New model available from September 2008

Ah the G class. Proof that much of the world's wealth is in the hands of people with more money than taste. Or sense.

What do you think about the civilian Hummer then? That should be the ultimate showy-but-for-no-reason-at-all car.
