Check Out How The All-New Mercedes-Benz G-Class Came To Life

Video

Something tells us it won't disappoint longtime fans and owners.

Earlier this month, Mercedes-Benz unveiled its all-new G-Class at Detroit. It was a pretty big deal. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger showed up. After all, it was the first time the G-Class has undergone such an extensive redesign since its debut way back in 1979. Because of its iconic status, Mercedes-Benz knew it couldn’t tamper too much with success. Then again, the outgoing G-Class was a dinosaur in terms of interior comfort and other amenities.

What had to remain was the SUV’s uncompromising off-road capabilities and boxy exterior design. Mercedes designers and engineers were faced with a daunting task, but the work has paid off. And now Mercedes wants to share with everyone, in this nearly 10-minute long video, the entire process.

It’s a cool behind-the-scenes look that, honestly, does at times feel like a long commercial, but it’s still quite interesting if you’re a G-Class fan (or just take an interest in iconic SUVs). One of our favorite parts is when a Mercedes employee demonstrates how the doors still sound the same as its predecessor’s when closing and locking them. It’s that level of detail that’s very impressive and oh so German. Another cool thing is watching the new G-Class demonstrate some of its off-roading capabilities. We saw it in the flesh in the Motor City and it definitely looks the part inside and out, but this video provides further proof it’s just as capable, if not more so, than the original when going off pavement.
