The Mercedes-Benz G-Class off-roader gets extended equipment starting September 1st. Customers will also have further customization available. The V8 engine of the G 500 has disappeared from the program.

Starting this fall, the G 400 d variant is available and configurable worldwide with no restriction. This happens due to the fact that the previous special model  has been discontinued.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class also gets a new “Desert” drive program. Drivers can select it via the DYNAMIC SELECT rocker switch whenever they go on dune bashing, for example.

Therefore, they will be able to order the Night Package without ticking the box for the AMG Line and Stainless Steel Package. It brings heat-insulating dark-tinted glass, mirror housing and radiator grille in obsidian black, as well as darkened turn signal lamps, reversing lamps and headlamps.

The model gets brand-new 20-inch 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels exclusively with the AMG Line in high-sheen finish, in high-gloss black or Himalaya grey.
