The New Mercedes-Benz G-Class Will get Extra Aerodynamic Forward of Its Electrical Period

There’s always room for improvement, even with something like the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

The German luxury automaker has just unveiled the 2025 versions of its legendary SUV. The latest G-Wagens comes with a host of updates, including a more aerodynamic design, revised off-roading tech, and, most intriguing of all, a new powertrain.

First things first, the new G-Class still looks like the G-Class you already know and love. Its boxy profile and shape aren’t going anywhere. But there have been some key tweaks made to the body. The new radiator grille features four horizontal louvres, the front and rear bumpers have been redesigned, the A-pillar has new cladding, and the front of the roof is now outfitted with a lip spoiler. These changes, while subtle, improve the SUV’s aerodynamic performance and reduce interior noise levels.  The first factor is yet another sign that the first all-electric G-Wagen is almost here.

The interior has also received a minor makeover. While the cabin looks awfully similar to that of the 2024 model, there are more screens and a standard Burmester surround-sound system. All versions of the new G-Class also feature the automaker’s MBUX infotainment system which has a new Off-Road Cockpit mode. The new function allows drivers to monitor vehicle positioning, and steering angle, and use the “Transparent Hood” to take a “virtual” look through the front end via a 360-degree camera. MBUX also comes with improved driver’s assistance features, including active steering assist, route-based speed adaption, and emergency stop assist.

The biggest change to the new G-Class can be found beneath the actual hood of the G550. The 2024 model’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 has been replaced by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that gets a mild hybrid assist from a 48-volt electrical system and integrated starter generator. The mill produces 443 hp and 413 ft lbs of torque, which is 27 hp more but 37 ft lbs of torque less than its predecessor.

The high-performance AMG G63, meanwhile, comes standard with an electrified twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that produces 577 hp and 627 ft lbs of torque. It comes with the same hybrid system as the G550, which kicks in an additional 20 hp and 148 ft lbs of torque at low speeds, as well as an optional adaptive suspension system. Both versions of the new G-Class come with an updated nine-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter that routes power to all four wheels.

Production of the new G-Class models is expected to start soon, with the SUVs expected to hit dealerships during the second half of the year. Mercedes didn’t say how much either would cost, but it wouldn’t be a major shock if the starting prices—the 2024 G550 starts at $143,000, the AMG G63 at $179,000—rise for both.
