With a history of more than 31 years, the Mercedes G-Class is a car that needs no introduction. That being said, it has been an interesting four years with this vehicle and its many facelifts. It’s beginning to remind us of Joan Rivers and what’s left of her face.

An inside source at G-Klasse’s manufacturing facility at Graz, Austria has reported that a facelift version for the Mercedes G-Class will be completed just ahead of the Paris Motor Show. This would be facelift number three in the past four years. It will include updated engines that will respect the new Euro 5 emission standards. The 5.5 liter normally-aspirated V8 from the G 500 will be replaced by newly-developed direct injection V8 with twin-turbochargers.

The interior of the vehicle will receive minor changes to include the latest technology out there. These are some of the same technologies seen in the new E-Class. The exterior design will also remain mostly unchanged, but will see a new set of alloy wheels and minor nips and tucks here and there.

Yeah! I have to agree on you Brice Brett it is kind of looks like Jeep Wrangler, but the fact that it is from Mercedes. I think I must say that it is so unlike them. I can’t see the classy looks that I usually see on their cars.

Kinda looks like the Jeep Wrangler but with a class and stylish exterior and sophisticated interior looks like it would hit in the US as it may seems.

We’ve been arguing this thread with a friend since this morning when we compared it with Hammer. Looks similar though, but I know it would be better of Mercedes will overhaul its design.

This is one of the coolest cars around today and will probably always be as long as Mercedes dont change it. I have loved this car from a young age and probably always will.

I doubt this facelift makes it better, but it seems its structure got a little of similarity with the hammer.

The G-Class’s body trim and design is till the same as it was first introduced on the market. and i think this is the right time for some facelift.

I agree eventhough it’s already 31 years since it was first introduce in the market. Still the g-class is one of the best and still can compete with many modern SUV’s.
