On the outside, new LED-look taillamps are the extent of the changes. But inside, the changes are more substantial.
The G-Class, which Benz reminds us has been in production for more than 25 years, wears a new “high-grade” instrument cluster after the revamp. A new center console, air-conditioning control panel, and a new steering wheel give it a “fresh appeal,” according to a release. The steering wheel gets multi-function controls, and the center console helps to make the controls more foolproof, the official newser asserts.
Standard equipment on the gas-powered versions of the G-Class, the G500 and G55, includes a leather-and-wood steering wheel and the Benz COMAND system with DVD navigation. The G320 diesel version makes the navigation system an option, and has only leather on the wheel.
options include a rear-view camera; tire pressure monitors; a sport exhaust; and
Deliveries of the new edition begin in April.
