On the market for over thirty years, this model series cuts an impressive figure on rough terrain off the beaten path, whether for private or professional use. The exciting journey of the G-Class began back in 1979. Over the years it has experienced countless technical enhancements and modernisations in its model variants without sacrificing its unique character in the process.
The G-Class offers tried-and-tested technology so that you can power through tough terrain. Sophisticated solutions from Mercedes-Benz ensure that this model can continue driving even when only one wheel has grip.
The three differential locks of the G-Class can be individually engaged in a logically determined sequence. As a result they can adapt the vehicle’s handling to its surroundings in the best possible way. If a wheel loses traction, power will be distributed to the wheels with the best roadholding.
When faced with challenging surfaces off the beaten track, the driver receives additional assistance from the transfer case with low-range ratio (specified as standard). Simply press the low-range switch to activate this function.
The transfer case shifts from the on-road ratio to the off-road ratio. The result is a slope climbing ability of up to 80 percent at a slow speed and maximum traction.
