Here we are in 2018 already looking ahead to the 2019 model year for some models. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an iconic SUV that gives a rugged look. Not only is rugged in appearance, but it performs exceptionally well. The 2019 model has been redesigned, giving it the first redesign since its introduction in 1979. Take a look at our comparison between the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
Off-roading is one of the perks of owning a G-Class. With exceptional power coupled with impressive versatility, you’ll easily be able to take the road less traveled. Now it’s even easier with new features like a nine-speed automatic transmission with torque converter and a greater ground clearance. There’s more to see, so check out the table below for more specs and features!

There are still a few aspects of the 2019 G-Class that have yet to be released, but you can rest assured you’ll be treated to the same features you loved in past models but with a few upgrades. With a wider and longer base, there will be a little better stability and control in the 2019 G-Class which makes for better off-roading. Worried about trekking through the mud and water? Mercedes-Benz heard your concerns, which is why they’ve added another four inches of mud and water fording to it. While the 2019 G-Class will still get the same powerful 416 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque, the transmission is upgraded from the previous seven-speed automatic to a new nine-speed automatic with a torque converter.
