Mercedes G-Class gets a facelift

25 September 2015

Mercedes-Benz has released the details surrounding the facelifted G-Class.

All models in the line up offer 16% more power, while fuel consumption has been dropped by an impressive 17%.

The facelift also includes a new suspension set up and a more sensitive ESP system.

The turbocharged diesel in the G350 benefits from a hike in output from 155 kW to 180 kW, with its torque climbing from 540 to 600Nm.

The AMG G 63 now delivers 420 kW instead of 400 kW with torque of 760 Nm.

The G 350 d and the AMG G 63 are equipped as standard with an ECO start/stop function that reduces fuel consumption and emissions by switching off the engine when the vehicle is at rest, e.g. in a traffic jam or at traffic lights.

Visually, the new G 350 d is especially easy to identify by its restyled bumpers and now standard flared wheel arches in the vehicle colour. The G 350 d now also comes as standard with 45.7 cm (18-inch) five-spoke light-alloy wheels.

With the new EDITION 463 special model, Mercedes-AMG is giving the G 63 an impressive sporty look. The exquisite interior specification includes a two-tone instrument panel, two-tone seats in high-quality designo leather with side bolsters in carbon-look leather and contrasting topstitching, seat and door centre panels in a diamond look, carbon-fibre trim and door pulls in nappa leather.

On the outside, a stainless steel underguard, AMG sport stripes along the sides and a protective-strip insert in black aluminium look underscore both the dynamics and exclusivity of the special model. The G 63 is fitted with exclusive 53.3 cm (21-inch) 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels in matt black with high-sheen spokes and

295/40 R 21 wide-base tyres.
