The Mercedes G-Class and its 2012

So far I have not yet written a book the Mercedes G-Class model has taken on, just as the famous SL, a of its own. So I start with a instead first. No Mercedes can back to such a long history. Like another in this category, the Range it is a car in its own league so to speak. And from its in 1979 to its 2012 update, the of the Mercedes G-Class model has not changed that much. And the designers had the wisdom to restrain

After 33 years of gradual management of Daimler-Benz thought to the Mercedes G-Class once some fresh momentum. A facelift should make classic among off-road an attractive, yet pricy alternative to competitors. With a new and luxurious some discreet modifications to the new safety features, a new infotainment and, in some cases, new the Mercedes G-Class was upgraded  in a continuation of its evolution.

The G-Class was originally developed as a vehicle for the Shah of Persia. the Iranian revolution, this had to be of course, so it was then decided to it available instead for private although the Mercedes G-Class ended up to be used by many around the world. Over the of its long years of production, the has been regularly modified to the requirements of its customers – but the essential of the Mercedes G-Class: to be used in off-road terrain, has always unchanged.

Over the years, electronics have been in order to further improve its outstanding off-road capabilities. At the time Mercedes-Benz has continued to on bringing the interior appointments and qualities to the same standards as for the Mercedes cars. Its outstanding in rough terrain, its performance as a vehicle and its luxurious look and have helped to make that the Mercedes G-Class is going strong after is now a third of a century. And just as in the car is today still largely at the Steyr Daimler-Puch plant in Austria.
