Refreshed Mercedes-Benz G-Class range revealed, more power and lower fuel consumption

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the updated G-Class range, offering up to 16 percent more power and lower fuel consumption.

The G 500 gets a new 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine producing 422 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque between 2250 and 4750 rpm, taking the big SUV from 0-62 mph in 5.9 seconds.

The G350d model now comes with 245 hp, up from 211 hp, while torque is up from 399 lb-ft to 443 lb-ft, taking it from 0-62 mph in 8.9 seconds.

The AMG models also come with extra power. The G 63 AMG now packs 571 hp (+27hp) and 561 lb-ft of torque, while the range topping G 65 now has 630 hp (+18hp) and 738 lb-ft of torque. Good enough to take the iconic off-roader from 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds.

Visually the updated G 500 and G 350 d model stays true to the familiar classic design, boasting restyled bumpers and standard AMG flared wheel arches in the colour of the vehicle.

Inside, the G 500 and G 350 d feature an eye-catching instrument cluster in two-tube look with 11.4 cm multifunction display and redesigned pointers and dials. The two AMG models also sport a redesigned instrument cluster.

Under the skin updates include a new suspension setup, together with more sensitive ESP control resulting in increased driving stability, safety and road comfort.
