Revealed: 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class interior shows up
But who needs dual displays for off-roading?
Mercedes-Benz won’t change the G-Class recipe and except minor visual tweaks, the G-Wagen is set to retain its traditional shape.
Inside, however, Stuttgart applied the same treatment received by the E, S, A and CLS, which means the G gets dual 12.3-inch screens serving the instrument cluster and infotainment system – most likely standard on higher trim levels.
In addition, Mercedes’ press blurb mentions the G-Class’ cockpit features open-pore wood trim, leather seats as well as metal and carbon-fiber inserts.
Furthermore, the interior’s storage capacity has been tweaked, and extra pockets have been added, while Mercedes says each rear door can hold a 1-liter water bottle. What’s more, the rear bench is 60/40 or fully split-foldable.
Space-wise, legroom up front is said to have increased by 1.5 in (38 mm), yet the most significant legroom bump targets those sitting in the back: 5.9 in (150 mm).
The new Mercedes-Benz G-Class is set to debut at the 2018 Detroit Motor Show (NAIAS), with US sales expected to kick off in late 2018.
