2015 might be the last year when the mighty G Wagon will be made and this is mainly due to the fact that the car features engines that aren’t so fuel efficient or even remotely friendly to the environment. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz G Wagon will be the best G model ever made thanks to improvements to the running gear as well to the interior. This Mercedes luxury SUV will be released starting with the end of September at a base price of just around 117.000$ making it one of the most expensive Mercedes cars ever!
2015 Mercedes-Benz G Wagon SUV Changes
The exterior of 2015 Mercedes-Benz G Wagon has remained mostly unchanged except the new wheels that you now get on the base model and the LED lights with Xenon that also come as standard. As we would expect from the 2015 Mercedes-Benz G Wagon, on the interior we will find the same level of luxury that is found on the S Class. The upholstery is leather as standard as well as the steering wheel. The interior trim can either be aluminium, carbon fiber or wood at no additional cost. The 9 inch screen for the satellite navigation also displays the rear view camera and controls the infotainment system.
2015 Mercedes-Benz G Wagon Engine
2015 Mercedes-Benz G Wagon SUV will come with two petrol engines and a diesel. The least powerful petrol engine will be the 5.4 liter V8 with 388 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque which should be plenty powerful for most. If this is not enough you can get this engine with two turbochargers and then get 544 horsepower and 591 lb-ft of torque. If you still need more power than the 6 liter twin-turbo V12 will have to suffice at 612 horsepower and 750 lb-ft of torque. All of these engines can barely reach 15 MPG on the highway and will get as low as 9 MPG in the city. The diesel on the other hand is a 3 liter V6 that is good for up to 210 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, making it perfect for people who value the environment or for those who want to tow things with their car.
There is a reason for why this Mercedes luxury SUV has been so successful and that is that it is one of the few cars remaining that feature a body-on-frame design with independent front and rear axles thus making it very capable off-road. Also, thanks to the fact that 2015 Mercedes-Benz G Wagon SUV has front, rear and center lockable differentials, it will be unstoppable no matter what. The only gearbox available is a 7 speed automatic that you can get in two tuning options. A comfort mode that is standard on all models and an AMG tuned gearbox that shifts much faster but it’s more brutal.
