The Wolf dresses up this latest upgrade.

Had strategists at Mercedes gotten way, the G-Wagen wouldn’t be us today. Called “Wolf” by the military, which ordered units back in 1989, German equivalent of the Hummer H1 did not fit into Mercedes’ increasingly and urban lineup. Attempts to it fit in, such as renaming the G-Wagen for Gelaendewagen, which means the G-class were studiously by its devotees.

Mercedes’ plan to kill the with the introduction of the plush, kid-friendly GL-class failed. Stuttgart saw that the highly customer base of the G-Wagen had no in the new M-class derivative, the quirky but off-roader got another lease on

The G-Wagen continues to prove still is life in this box as it is for the umpteenth time. Acknowledging a perfect shape can’t be upon, Mercedes left the largely untouched. The taillights made the switch to a somewhat LED-style look last The only visible new change is a new grille.

Both are impressive, considering the G’s weight and aerodynamics resembling a wall.

There will be another G55 with output rising 493 hp to a nice, even 500 hp. Details be released soon.

Europeans get a of three bodystyles of the G320 CDI and the a short-wheelbase and a long-wheelbase and a somewhat convertible.
