Mercedes Benz Unveils the 2017 G-Class

German automaker Mercedes-Benz, has rolled-out fresh updates for its G-Class vehicles, including a new G350d with a striking exterior and an optional professional off-road set-up.

Dubbed the G350d “Professional,” Mercedes calls the car a “highly purist variant” that is “ideally suited to grueling off-road use and professional applications.”

Electric windows and infotainment screens are out, while a beefed-up, ladder-type frame body, permanent all-wheel drive with off-road ratio and three electrically selectable, 100‑percent differential locks are in. The seats are now covered in fabric instead of leather, and the carpets have been replaced with rubber mats.

All the other G-Class models receive slightly less exciting technology updates for the infotainment, navigation and communication systems.

The new 2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class range will be available for order from this summer.
