Forty years after its first introduction to the public, the G-Class has always brought immense excitement to its fans because of the car’s outstanding driving characteristics and impressive off-road capabilities. The iconic Mercedes-Benz off-roader has grown further since 1979 while preserving its character and uniqueness.
The new variant of the G-Class, the G 350 d, is powerful, comfortable, superior, and even more fuel-efficient. The power-train lineup is now being expanded with an efficient diesel variant that delivers performance, safety, modern assistance systems, and excellent handling.
Powerful and Exceptional like never before
Powering the new G 350d is the brand’s in-line 6-cylinder diesel engine that produces 2,925 cc and delivers a class-leading 286 horsepower, churning out 600 Nm of torque. Paired with efficient emissions reduction installed directly at the engine, the engine has faster effectiveness of the catalytic converter and the diesel particulate filter. Its near-engine insulated configuration also allows minor heat loss and ideal operating conditions for the emission control system.
The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with torque converter adapted to the G 350d to meet the transmission of power it needs for the off-road icon. Mercedes-Benz developed a dedicated software application to shorten the shift and response times to make the G-Class more lively. Its wide transmission ratio simultaneously contributes to reducing fuel consumption, providing a more quiet and comfortable drive, especially at low engine speeds.
In terms of exterior features, the new G 350 d has a 19-inch 5-twin spoke light-alloy wheels, metallic paintwork, and front-illuminated door sill panels. The LED High-Performance Headlights finish the look with a powerful touch.
Inside, the off-road beast has a high-quality interior with leather seats, leather grab handles for front passengers, an automatic dimming interior mirror, and ambient lighting in 64 hues and 10 color schemes. Paired with an innovative technology starting with KEYLESS-GO function, the G 350 also has a wide-screen cockpit resolution display with 12.3inch screen.
Even better off the road, more dynamic than ever on the road
With its DYNAMIC SELECT, drivers can choose from five drive modes, making the G 350 d an outstanding vehicle both on and off the road. It can adjust vehicle characteristics in seconds at the touch of a button, as the system changes the characteristics of the engine, transmission, suspension, and steering depending on the preference of its owner.
In terms of safety, the G 350 d does not disappoint with its array of driver assistance systems such as ADAPTIVE Brake Lights and Active Braking Assist to prevent impending collisions or mitigate their consequences and assist the driver during emergency braking. It also can brake autonomously if the driver takes no action to defuse a detected dangerous situation.
Comfort at new heights
The quiet and harmonious diesel engine offered maximum comfort, especially on long distances. Its exhaust system and engine produce much less noise and vibrations in the interior, even when revving up at high speeds. In reducing noise, Mercedes-Benz engineers controlled the mounts of the diesel engine actively for the first time. During acceleration, the two mounts are automatically stiffer, causing positive effects on the vibration of comfort and the driving dynamics.
Boasting a fine mix of off-roading ability and creature comforts, the G 350 stays true to the Mercedes-Benz brand. On the road, the “G” is as agile as it is comfortable and provides the driver with a better steering feel. The off-roader stays on track more solidly and is nimble and effortless when driving off-road terrains.
