2012 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Facelift: Details and Pricing Leaked [Exclusive]
Until now, if you wanted a fast G-Class, you only had one choice: the 5.4-liter supercharged V8, which worked with a five-speed auto. While the engine delivered loads of torque and one of the sweetest sounds in the world, it wasn’t quite the latest development in the field. Thus, Merc is now replacing it with AMG’s freshest goodie: the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8. You can read more on the new G63 AMG (the G55 moniker is gone) here.
However, now you can go even further, as the German engineers have finally turned the millions of rumors about a V12-powered AMG-branded G-Class into reality. Find out what the new G65 AMG can do, and what it’s price tag is, here.
As for the non-AMG G-Class, just like before you can have the 211 hp G350 BlueTEC diesel, which can be yours for EUR88,896 (USD116,480, at the current exchange rate), the petrol V8 G500, which retails for EUR104,148 (USD136,470) or the cabrio version of the latter, which is offered for EUR105,140. No, the prices don’t include VAT.
What we’d choose from the list of optional goodies? Maybe the EUR5,100 (USD6,682) Designo Magno Paint, the EUR1,550 (USD2,030) Distronic Plus, or the various extensive interior packages ,which retail for over EUR4,000 (USD5,240).
The facelifted G-Class will enter the spotlights in June, so you still have a little bit of time to make up your mind about the version you want.
