What To Expect

Mercedes is updating the G-Class for the 2025 model year. While the G-Class will continue to feature the same iconic boxy design and go-anywhere attitude as the original SUV from 1979, it’s getting a few modern touches. Here’s what we know about the 2025 Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

The 2025 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is getting an updated exterior design for the new model year. The SUV gains new A-pillars, a new grille design, redesigned front and rear bumpers, and an updated roof design. The SUV continues to have a boxy design with chunky bumpers, a high ground clearance, and a spare tire holder on the swingout tailgate.

The interior design of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class isn’t changing for the 2025 model year. The SUV will continue to have an upscale cabin with rugged touches. Dual screens that are integrated into a single panel dominate the squared-off dashboard.

2025 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Engine & Specs

The largest change for the 2025 Mercedes-Benz G-Class occurs under the SUV’s boxy hood. The G-Class adopts a new 48-volt mild-hybrid system with both engines and the SUV doesn’t come with a standard V8 engine anymore.

The base G550 comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that’s paired with a mild-hybrid system. Output is rated at 443 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. These figures represent a 27-hp increase and a 37 lb-ft of torque decrease from the outgoing twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine.

The AMG G63 continues to come with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that makes 577 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque but gains the new mild-hybrid system. Mercedes-Benz has introduced a new adaptive suspension system called AMG Active Ride Control for the G63. It utilizes hydraulic anti-roll bars and dampers to help keep the SUV flat while cornering, improve ride comfort on-road by softening things up, and improve wheel articulation when off-roading.

2025 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Safety

When it comes to safety features, the 2025 Mercedes-Benz G-Class will continue to come with advanced safety features, but the SUV has gained some new features. The SUV is available with a new surround-view camera system that provides drivers with a view of what’s under the vehicle. The G-Class also gains a new adaptive cruise control system with lance-centering assist that can automatically adjust the SUV’s speed when cornering on the highway and taking exit ramps.

Pricing for the 2025 Mercedes-Benz G-Class hasn’t been announced yet. Because of the updates, we expect pricing to be higher than the 2024 model which ranges from $144,150 to $184,150.

Competitors in the segment include the Land Rover Defender, Lexus LX, Land Rover Range Rover, Bentley Bentayga, and Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
