Mercedes G-Class gets another facelift

5 May 2015

Mercedes Benz has revealed the facelifted G-Class.

Style wise it’s basically the same car except for new bumpers and new flared wheel arches on the AMG derivative, but the biggest changes have taken place underneath that boxy body.

The old V8 in the G500 has been replaced with an all-new biturbo 4,0-litre V8 petrol engine. It produces 310kW and 610Nm of torque, which allows this enormous car to accelerate to 100km/h in less than six seconds.

The G350 diesel’s power output has been increased from 155kW/540Nm to 180kW and 600Nm of torque.

The G63 AMG’s figures have been increased to 420kW and 760Nm of torque, while the G65, which we probably won’t get in SA, now has a power rating of 463kW and 1000Nm of torque.
