2023 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Review: Specs and Pricing

Updated: Mar 3

2023 Mercedes- benz G-Class


There are many ways to be dirty, but the Mercedes-Benz G-class is unquestionably the most abundant. The G Wagon, constructed like a champagne-sipping Ford Bronco or Jeep Wrangler, has a luxurious interior with massaging seats and a starting price to match. A 416-hp twin-turbo V-8 with nine-speed automated transmission power every G550. Drive with all four wheels is usual. The 577-hp AMG-badged G63, which was reviewed separately, offers more power. The G Wagon can go on crazier adventures than its passengers would probably choose.

With three locking differentials and 9.5 inches of ground clearance, it feels impervious to get trapped. Due to its boxy appearance, the cabin is roomy and has enough legroom for every passenger, albeit at the expense of highway fuel efficiency. Yet, celebrities like the Kardashians, Sylvester Stallone, and other Hollywood heavyweights who frequently use this high-end off-road vehicle are not likely to be burdened by the cost of fuel.

What Has Changed For 2023?

Mercedes-G-class Benz's had a makeover in 2019, but just minor equipment upgrades will be made to the SUV for 2023. A brand-new G Professional option for 2023 comprises 18-inch matte black wheels, a spare wheel holder, cherry wood trim for the baggage area, and a roof rack. Added recently is an optional logo package.

2023 G-Class: Engine And Performance

The G550 is a twin-turbo V-8-powered vehicle with 416 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque that is equally speedy on the road as it is powered off. The G550's engine transmits power through an obedient nine-speed automated gearbox and comes standard with all-wheel drive. Due to an independent front suspension and a lower center of gravity than the outgoing model, the 2019 G550 that we drove offered significantly better road manners. At higher speeds, though, its tall, square shape produced a lot of wind noise, which undoubtedly hinders the SUV's ability to feel quick through curves.

Even so, the G550's handling seems more accurate than ever and the ride is smooth overall, save for the bumpiest roads. Each G-class is also outfitted by Mercedes with three locking differentials and a low-range gear, making it capable of navigating virtually any terrain.

2023 G-Class: Interior And Comfort

The inside of the G-class is all about luxury and provides greater room for passengers and cargo than the previous model, which adds to the vehicle's off-road prowess. A 12.3-inch completely digital instrument cluster, heated leather front, and back seats, a power-adjustable steering column, and three-zone automatic temperature control are all included as standard equipment. Customers can enjoy heated steering wheels, Nappa leather upholstery, massaging front seats with ventilation, and digital instrument displays by checking a few option boxes.

The most sumptuous aesthetic and more than 54 different interior upholsterers are available with the G manufaktur options, but they are somewhat expensive. Although there is ample headroom in both the front and back seats, the ride isn't as luxurious as it is in other high-end SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga or Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The Mercedes has a tonne of cargo room, though. The model under examination could accommodate 17 bags when the back row seats were lowered in addition to 16 carry-on baggage (33 total).

2023 G-Class: Connectivity

Every G-wagon has a sizable 12.3-inch infotainment screen that can be mostly operated with a rotary knob and touchpad situated on the center console. The system is simple to use and less distracting than touch-heavy rivals, and it includes helpful steering-wheel controls and voice directions. Other standard features include a 15-speaker, 590-watt Burmester audio system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. An entertainment system for the backseat or a Wi-Fi hotspot are options for those seeking additional enhancements.

2023 Mercedes-Benz G-Class: Pricing

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz G 550 has the highest MSRP among luxury big SUVs, starting at $139,900.

Which One To Purchase?

Every G-class commands a six-figure price, and the amount can increase significantly with the numerous pricey extras. We would steer clear of the most expensive modifications and add intelligent upgrades to our version. One of these is the Elite Interior package, which includes snazzier trim and better Nappa leather upholstery. The optional adaptive dampers allow for customizable ride quality, while the Seat Comfort package offers ventilated, massaging front seats. The heated steering wheel is the only alternative we would select.
