A thriving legend

The square root of legendary design.

Created to conquer challenges on six continents, the 37-year evolution of the G-Class keeps elevating the pinnacle of refinement. From its advanced lighting to its classic upright shape, its purposeful elegance is both unmistakable and irrefutable. Every surface of the G-Class reflects its confident capability on any surface of the earth.

Overbuilt by hand

Built, like no other SUV.

Its sturdy ladder frame and galvanized steel body are hand-welded. The frame is flowed with hot wax to resist corrosion. Even its wiring harnesses are hand-loomed. It takes more than 40 hours to craft each G-Class virtually entirely by hand. Beyond strength, more than quality, how a G-Class comes to life bestows it with unwavering character.

Outfitted by hand

Half a mile of thread. 45,000 stitches. And one unblinking eye.

Even with its perpetually fresh design, ergonomic layout and advanced luxuries, the G-Class cabin remains a living tribute to a tradition of handcraftsmanship that's all but vanished from the earth. And for 35 years, a single inspector has allowed no G-Class to undergo your scrutiny until it first surpasses his.

Tailored by hand

designo leather and wood: Matched by eye, unmatched by anything.

Exquisitely handcrafted designo leather and cabin trim (standard on AMG models) offers an extensive palette of personalization: as many as eight colors of Nappa leather, five woods and carbon fiber from which to choose. Even more exquisite Exclusive leather with distinctive diamond-pattern stitching is among your choices for the AMG models.


Three lockable differentials

Unmatched aptitude at any altitude.

As you make your way off-road, three sequentially lockable differentials offer increasingly masterful capability. Each differential can be locked in sequence (center, rear, then front) via a set of buttons on the dash, to help maintain the ideal balance of torque and traction for the situation.

ESP, 4-ETS, ABS, Brake Assist and Trailer Stability Assist do not operate when the differential locks are engaged. Off-road driving should only be attempted by drivers with the necessary skill, experience and understanding of the vehicle's limits. Locked differentials will limit steering ability. Read Operator's Manual before driving off-road or in deep water.

New 416-hp biturbo V-8 for the G550

New attitude at any latitude.

Lighter and more efficient yet with greater power and torque, a new 4.0-liter biturbo V-8 powers the 2016 G550. Generating 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, it can thrust the G550 from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds. A "hot inside V" turbo layout, low-friction design and new ECO Start/Stop system enhance elevate both and fuel economy.

Stated rates of acceleration are estimated based upon manufacturer's track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.

Permanent all-wheel drive

Unwavering confidence in any season.

The standard G-Class permament all-wheel drive system continually sends power to all four wheels. Its 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®) instantly apportions torque to the wheels that can use it best, for surefooted grip on snowy and wet roads. Off-road, its locking differentials help you conquer muddy, loose or uneven terrain.

ESP, 4-ETS, ABS, Brake Assist and Trailer Stability Assist do not operate when the differential locks are engaged. Off-road driving should only be attempted by drivers with the necessary skill, experience and understanding of the vehicle's limits. Locked differentials will limit steering ability. Read Operator's Manual before driving off-road or in deep water.
No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.

The AMG G63 and AMG G65

Horsepower in your hands.

There's only one handcrafted SUV with handcrafted power. Make that two: the 563-hp V-8 AMG G63 and new 621-hp V-12 AMG G65, the most powerful SUV in production. A single master craftsman hand-builds each biturbo engine. It's then teamed with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT® PLUS 7-speed and 20- or 21-inch AMG® wheels, and presented to you in exquisite luxury.


Safer driving made easier

Comfortable cruising, extra sensory perceptions.

Technological teamwork helps make highway driving safer and easier. DISTRONIC PLUS® cruise control uses radar to adapt your speed to the traffic flow, even stop-and-go. Blind Spot Assist, a rearview camera and PARKTRONIC help you sense your surroundings, for added safety when changing lanes or maneuvering in tight quarters.

DISTRONIC PLUS adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.
Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.
Rearview camera does not audibly notify driver of nearby objects and is not a substitute for actively checking around the vehicle for any obstacles or people. Images displayed may be limited by camera field of view, weather, lighting conditions and the presence of dirt, ice or snow on the camera.

Music, navigation and more

Comprehensive entertainment, expert guidance.

The elegant central controller and color displays put a world of features within easy reach. Available Rear Seat Entertainment brings first-rate video to the second row.

While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs.
