Editors at TheCarConnection.com find that the 2009 Mercedes-Benz G-Class offers plenty of interesting features. The new COMAND feature is the big news for 2009.
J.D. Power reports that the Mercedes-Benz G-Class made "significant civilian upgrades for the 2007 model year," including "navigation, bi-Xenon headlamps, a 7-speed automatic transmission, new fog lamps and center console, as well as new interior leather trim and better front-seat cushions." The vehicle continues to move toward passenger comfort and luxury.
Neither the G-Class’s climate control nor its headlamps are of the "adaptive variety," but amenities include Smartkey remote control and an infrared remote opening and closing of the windows as well as the sunroof. J.D. Power adds that the 2009 Mercedes-Benz G-Class comes with trailer-hitch pre-wiring, a universal (HomeLink) garage door opener, and an electrically heated windshield.
Kelley Blue Book reports that "other than some dealer-installed upgrades, there are no major options for the [Mercedes-Benz] G-Class." The reason? Most items are standard. Audiophiles, for example, will be gratified to know that both the Mercedes-Benz 2009 G55 and Mercedes-Benz 2009 G500 offer the Harman/Kardon premium-brand stereo system, an AM/FM in-dash single-CD player with six-CD changer, and 10 speakers—a year's subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio included.
