Capabilities in the 2019 G-Class

While we don’t yet know everything there is to know about the 2019 G-Class, we do know that we can expect to see many of the same features as before while also expecting some upgrades. The 2019 model will be the first major change to the model since its introduction in 1979. The second generation G-Class will include a longer and wider base for better stability and control on and off the beaten path. Adding to its rugged nature is an extra four inches of water and mud fording for an impressive 27.6 inches. Performance remains largely the same when it comes to power output, but the newer G-Class now comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission whereas the 2018 model came with a seven-speed.

When it comes to the interior, there will be some big changes there as well. Passengers can enjoy more space thanks to an increase in legroom and shoulder room. While the rugged exterior remains the same, the inside is designed to look more modern with features such as dual 12.3 inch displays, customizable driver cockpit, and advanced driver assistance features.
