Mercedes Benz G Class
There are cars which remained in the history, there are cars which are a part, and there are cars which make history. The car with grandiose history and the great name Mercedes-Benz G class, or “Geländewagen” belongs to this pride that in the transfer means the cross-country vehicle. There are different versions of G class that makes the image of the car for itself and makes the mystical history. G class is an off-road vehicle which proved to be practically in all spheres of human activity. For more than 30 years, this car is like a dinosaur which does not stop developing.
Development of Mercedes Benz G class was engaged to Daimler-Benz and Austrian company Steyr-Puch. Therefore, under the agreement of companies, to some countries, this car was delivered under the name of not Mercedes-Benz, but “Puch". Under the name of Puch, G class was delivered to Croatia, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia and even Liechtenstein. At that moment, G class became quite a various model which could find its end-user everywhere. Having three options of length of the wheelbase, four different versions of the engine and several options of a body make it heavy to reevaluate universality of this model.
Mercedes-Benz company planned to release of restyling Mercedes Benz G class on the basis of the W463 series in 2017. The press service of carmaker published the statement in which it is said that updates are planned so essential that the management thinks of giving models own name and to bring it in a separate model range. Due to aluminum materials, it is supposed that the mass of a design will be reduced at least by 200 kg. At the same time, it is intended to increase the width of the all-terrain vehicle about 1860 mm (by 100 mm) that will allow adding additional space to the saloon. Probably, the image of the new Mercedes Benz G class will be sustained in style of a concept “Ener-G-Force" presented at the auto show in Los Angeles in 2012.
