Yes, all things considered, we’re still going to present the all-new G Class in every form possible – and we’d do that with each and every other legendary model out there, from the cute Fiat 500 all the way to the tough Land Rover Defender.
Because the Mercedes-Benz G Class just premiered in front of the worldwide audience of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, we’re just going to keep treating you to that until you get one or fall in love with it – just like us. So, we’ve just shown you the optional Night Package and in there we talked about the AMG Line – and in case you were wondering that that brings, here are some additional details. We can also treat the G Class AMG Line as a preview for the upcoming AMG G models, with the mild sporty off-roader featuring just the design elements.
For example, the G Class AMG Line comes with subtle modifications to the front and rear, along with the traditional range of 20-inch alloy wheels from Affalterbach (just two options in this case, though). There’s also additional detailing – “Mercedes-Benz” lettering on the front brake calipers, brushed aluminum body trimming, as well as tougher wheel arches for both axles. Changes are nicely rounded off with the addition of a sports exhaust system to complement the growl of the biturbo 4.0-liter V8 of the G500 model that delivers 422 horsepower (310 kilowatts) and 610 Newton-meters (450 pound-feet) of torque.
Inside the cabin of the sportier 2019 G-Class AMG Line you’ll be able to notice a flat-bottomed steering wheel shod in Nappa leather, AMG-branded floor mats and red accents for the leather upholstery as well as the seatbelts. By the way, in case you didn’t know, AMG’s been implicated from the get go in the development of the new G Class, adding its contribution to the suspension (including the front double wishbone setup), axles, shaft, drivetrain, and knuckle setups.
