Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz G-Class at Mercedes-Benz of Massapequa

The G-Class

The G-Class: far more than a cross-country vehicle

The new G-Class benefits from almost 40 years of experience and expertise in the off-road segment. The primary goal of development was to redefine the quality of the handling both on an off the road. This goal has been achieved: the new G-Class performs even better off-road, while on the road it is significantly more agile, dynamic and comfortable than its predecessor. In 2014, joint development work on the suspension was started by Mercedes-Benz G GmbH and Mercedes-AMG GmbH. The result is an independent suspension with double-wishbone front axle in combination with a rigid rear axle. As part of their work, the engineers had the task of fighting for every millimeter, because off-road capability not least also means maximum ground clearance. The raising of the axles makes a decisive contribution in this respect, while requiring a strut tower brace in the engine compartment to achieve the ruggedness objectives.

The components of the double-wishbone front suspension are directly mounted to the ladder-type frame without a subframe. The lower wishbone’s attachment points on the frame in Z-direction are positioned as high up as possible. This arrangement ensures good drivability beyond the asphalt. Specifically for the G-Class, the new front axle is designed in such a robust way that the off-road performance and off-road capabilities of its predecessor are maintained and partly even surpassed.

Equipped in this way and with a ground clearance of 270 mm to the front axle gear, the G-Class provides plenty of potential for maximum assertiveness and driving pleasure in off-road terrain. This is further enhanced by a maximum front spring travel of 85/100 millimeters and a ramp breakover angle of 25.7 degrees.

However, the specifications for the G-Class not only included off-road solidity and superiority, but also better driving dynamics and comfort on asphalted roads. Thanks to the new front axle design, the on-road performance of the G-Class has therefore been enhanced at the same time. On the road, the “G” is as agile as it is comfortable and provides the driver with a better steering feel. The off-roader stays on track more solidly, and is agile and effortless when driving off-road.

Interior

Interior: as luxurious as it is authentic

While the exterior maintains the iconic, classic look, the interior of the G-Class has undergone a fundamental modern redesign which reinterprets the genes of the classic vehicle to reflect the exterior. With its off-road character and top- class luxury appointments, the G-Class has always combined two extremes into a harmonious symbiosis. Unmistakable at first glance and from the first touch, only high-quality materials are used. Every detail is finished by hand with the utmost care.

Getting into the G-Class reveals that numerous design features from the exterior have been transposed into the interior. The shape of the round headlamps, for instance, which is reflected in the side air vents. Or the design of the iconic indicators, found again in the shape of the loudspeakers. The driver, co-driver and passengers in the second row benefit from the increase in width, and therefore the more spacious interior of the off-roader. Hallmarks of the G-Class include the grab handle in front of the front passenger and the chrome-highlighted switches for the three differential locks. Both have been further improved and retained as characteristic features. In an accident the front passenger airbag deploys above the grab handle.

The center console benefits from the design freedom and has been completely newly configured to meet the functional requirements. The touch-sensitive Touch Control Buttons on the steering wheel respond to swiping motions in the same way as the surface of a smartphone. They enable the driver to control the entire infotainment system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel.

The very clearly arranged and completely redesigned instrument panel features timeless tube-look analogue dials as standard. In other words, fans of classic round instruments will certainly not be disappointed in the new G-Class. As in the new E-Class and S-Class, an instrument cluster in the form of a large display showing virtual instruments in the driver’s direct field of vision and a central display above the center console is available as an option. In this case the two 12.3-inch displays blend visually into a Widescreen Cockpit beneath a shared glass cover.

Dynamic Select

Make Your Choice

DYNAMIC SELECT is now available with several driving modes for the G-Class. This allows adjusting the vehicle characteristics in seconds at the touch of a button, as the system modifies the characteristics of the engine, transmission, suspension, steering and assistance systems at the driver’s behest. The driving modes “Comfort,” “Sport,” “Eco” and “Individual” can be set conveniently via the DYNAMIC SELECT rocker switch. “ECO” mode, for example, makes a particularly fuel-efficient and quiet driving style possible, as the exhaust flap is automatically closed. In “Sport” mode, on the other hand, the shift points of the automatic transmission, the throttle response of the engine and the parameters of the electric steering system and exhaust flap are changed. “Individual” allows drivers to configure their own preferred vehicle settings.

DYNAMIC SELECT provides a host of options in combination with the new suspension with optional Adaptive Damping System. The driver is then also able to modify the vehicle’s damping characteristics in Sport and Comfort modes using the DYNAMIC SELECT switch.

Put simply, the G-Class detects the particular condition of the road and sets the appropriate damping characteristics, so that the damping in off-road terrain is stiffer, for example. In contrast, in Sport mode the G-Class boasts a more agile response when driving on the road.

To adapt the damper response, the kinetic and potential energy currently stored in each wheel is ascertained and calculated in real time from the spring travel and its derivatives. Together with the body acceleration, the control unit computes individual signal values for the solenoid valves of each damper. The suspension therefore regulates each wheel individually, improving both on- road ride comfort and off-road performance.

Off Road

The basis for extreme off-road use

Since its premiere in 1979, the G-Class has successfully relied on uncompromising functionality and outstanding off-road capabilities. Then and now, the basis for this is provided by a ladder-type frame with a mounted body. This design is considerably more robust and suitable for off-road operations than a unibody construction. The ladder-type frame of higher-strength steel is able to resist torsional forces with greater stability. As the lowest point in the construction, it also ensures a low center of gravity. Moreover, the robust frame protects the powertrain, fuel tank and exhaust system against ground contact and when driving over obstacles.

Working on the development of the new G-Class was extremely challenging for the team. “Further technical development of an icon such as the G-Class was both a challenge and an opportunity at the same time. Each part and every bolt came under close scrutiny,” explains Dr. Gunnar Güthenke, Head of the Off-Road Product Group at Mercedes-Benz. “With the body, our main focus was on increasing the vehicle rigidity and the connections between the suspension and drivetrain with the ladder-type frame.”

Using a digital prototype, the developers simulated the service life of individual components and closed systems to find out in which places it would be possible to make use of lighter raw materials. The diet worked, as the G-Class has shed around 375 lbs (170 kg). The recipe for success: a new mix of materials comprising strong, high-strength, ultra-high-strength steels and aluminum, as well as improved production processes at the Magna Steyr plant in Austria. The rigid body shell is now made of a variety of steel grades, while the fenders, hood and doors are made of aluminum.
