The Evolution of the G class

Cars

The G class is one of Mercedes most iconic vehicles. It has been around for over 40 years and it has seen many iterations, from the original military vehicle to its current luxury SUV that can challenge any other SUV on the market. In this post we'll take a look at the evolution of this iconic vehicle, starting with its humble beginnings as an offroader and ending with it becoming one of Mercedes' most popular models today.

A brief history of the G63

The G63, which was introduced in the early 1970s and has been produced ever since, was originally designed as a military vehicle. It was the first vehicle to be built on Mercedes’ new G platform—a platform that was also used for other classic models including the 300SL Gullwing and 560SEL 6.9.

Enter Mercedes-AMG

  • Mercedes-AMG is responsible for the G63 AMG. This performance oriented brand is a subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz, and knows how to create high performance luxury cars.

  • The G class has always been known as a sturdy and dependable vehicle that can handle any type of terrain. With its new design, this SUV will continue to be one of the most popular among its fans.

With the help of AMG, the G class has grown from an offroader to a full blown luxury SUV

AMG is a performance division of Mercedes-Benz, owned by Daimler AG. AMG has been around since 1967 and was founded by Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher.

The G class started out as an offroader, but with the help of AMG, it has become a full blown luxury SUV. In 1991, Mercedes-Benz created the first generation G class vehicle to compete with other offroaders such as Land Rover and Range Rover. The second generation G class (W463) was released in 1996 and featured an all wheel drive system based on 5 differentials for improved traction over its predecessors. In 2019, Mercedes released the latest iteration of the G wagon which has been upgraded in every field from comfort to perfomance. Mercedes have also released concepts of a G wagon vehicle that will be solely powered by electric which is set to release in the near future as the automotive industry is moving away from internal combustion engines.
