2018 Mercedes G Class Release Date, Specs and Price
2018 Mercedes G Class is also known well as a G-Wagon that has been around about 40 years. It is used as the part of military forces in German and it can deal with terrible terrains in the world. AMG also has their high-riding SUV version with the powerful C65 AMG and twin-turbocharged V12 and the C65 AMG 6×6 with three portal axles and pickup bed.
At the first glance, you may think that there are no big changes at all around it. But, if you have closer inspection, you will see the test mule that is wider than the current model. The company offers the new 2018 Mercedes G Class with the expanded front end from its narrow grille. The extra width can be seen easily when you check the sides of the headlights. They still keep the iconic wide fender flares with the low beltline and vertical windshield. It also has a flat side glass and roof. The rear door has swing-away type as before with the spare tire. It seems the company gives slight redesign to the taillights with the LED units to make it different. The tow hitch is also spotted.
As other spotted cars, it is still hard for spy photographers to catch the cabin design of any new cars. It is only speculated to have some impressive changes. 2018 Mercedes G Class may go with the current interior with the combination of S-Class and E-Class design. The materials and the design should give us a high-end choice. There will be standard front bucket and rear bench design from the previous model to give more room for cargo behind the second row. For the third row, there will be no changes at all especially for the space.
2018 Mercedes G Class Engine
There are several engine options to provide for both diesel and gasoline engines. In US market, the main engine we can expect is 4.0 liter biturbo V8 engine to make 416 hp and 450 pound-feet of torque. The 2018 Mercedes G Class likely will be mated to seven-speed auto transmission with the 4WD layout.
2018 Mercedes G Class is still too early to estimate the price but we expect it shouldn’t be too far from the previous model. We think it shouldn’t be more than $125,000 for the base. The company should release it sometime in 2018 since it will be the strong rival for Land Rover Range Rover.
