Design

A thriving legend
2014-G-CLASS-SUV-009-CCF-D.jpg

As endearing as it is enduring.

Created to conquer challenges on six continents, the 36-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
2014-G-CLASS-SUV-054-CCF-D.jpg

Feels like no other SUV, because it's 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
2015-G-CLASS-SUV-053-CCF-D.jpg

Half a mile of thread. 45,000 stitches. And the eye of a single inspector.

Even with its dramatically fresh design, ergonomically optimized 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 34 years, a single inspector has allowed no G-Class to undergo your scrutiny until it first meets his.

Tailored by hand

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

Exquisitely handcrafted designo leather and cabin trim (standard on the G 63 AMG) offers an extensive palette of personalization options, with eight colors of Nappa leather, four woods and carbon fiber from which to choose. An Exclusive Package for the G63 features five leather colors with distinctive diamond-pattern stitching.


Performance

Three lockable differentials
2015-G-CLASS-SUV-002-CCF-D.jpg

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.

382-hp G550 V-8 engine
2014-G-CLASS-SUV-001-CCF-D.jpg

Attitude at any latitude.

The 382-hp G550 V-8 generates 391 lb-ft of torque, with an exceptional 75 percent of it on tap at just 1,000 rpm. To help cut weight but not durability, the engine block is diecast from aluminum with a solid bedplate. A dual-stage intake and continuously variable timing of both its intake and exhaust valves enhances efficiency and emissions.

Permanent all-wheel drive
2014-G-CLASS-SUV-057-CCF-D.jpg

Confidence in any season.

The standard G-Class permanent 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 536-hp G63 AMG
2014-G-CLASS-SUV-056-CCF-D.jpg

Horsepower in your hands.

What happens when you introduce two more hands to the crafting of the G-Class? Superlative power underfoot. A single master engine builder creates each 536-hp biturbo V-8 by hand. It's then teamed with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT® PLUS 7-speed and 20-inch AMG® wheels, and delivered to your hands in the exquisite luxury of designo Nappa leather.


Technology

Safer driving made easier
2014-G-CLASS-SUV-019-CCF-D.jpg

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
2015-G-CLASS-SUV-037-CCF-D.jpg

Comprehensive entertainment, expert guidance.

Advanced entertainment, navigation and communication systems work with intuitive ease in the G-Class. Bluetooth® lets you make calls hands-free and play music wire-free. The elegant central controller and color displays put a world of features within easy reach. A new Rear Seat Entertainment option 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. The driver should utilize the system's audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.

Bluetooth® interface does not provide phone charging or external antenna. Voice interactivity feature is dependent on selected handset. Phone sold separately. See dealer for a list of approved compatible phones. Bluetooth is a registered trademark of Bluetooth SIG, Inc.
