Rendering shrinks and modernizes the timeless, massive G Class into yet another SUV.
The epic Mercedes-Benz G Wagon has been around for decades,ever since it proudly strutted with its Geländewagen moniker. The GClass was never apologetic for its colossal proportions, poor gas mileage andmammoth power – with even the base model making 382 horsepower and 391 lb-ft oftorque and the G63 AMG upping those numbers to a whopping 544 and 560. But inthese days of downsizing and conservation, could this conspicuous consumptioncontinue?
Offering a glimpse into an imagined future, where even theGermans would be forced to downsize and cutback on emissions for their power-luxury-utility vehicle, a site called Mercedes Fans is offering this look into what afuture Mini-G-Class could look like. While it looks nothing like the descendantof the epic G, it does appear to be a possible replacement for the GL Class, ormaybe a completely new model line that would offer some of the G’s heritage in abite-sized package.
