New 2025 Mercedes G-Class G500 G550 G63 Revealed

New 2025 Mercedes G-Class G500 G550 G63 Revealed

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, a well-known figure in the world of luxury off-road vehicles, is making headlines once again for its top-notch features in 2025. The latest lineup shines in every situation – thanks to its enhanced performance brought on by electric-powered drive systems, contemporary systems for assisting the driver, a boost in comfort, and the leap forward in digital features. The standard models, known as the G550 (and the G500 in certain markets), have swapped their previous V-8 engine for a new turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that includes a mild-hybrid system. This system combines an exhaust gas turbocharger with an electric auxiliary compressor, providing the G-Class with 443 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The mild-hybrid setup includes an integrated starter generator that contributes an additional 20 hp and 148 lb-ft. This setup results in a total power increase of 27 hp over the older model, though it does have slightly less torque. While the G550 has seen changes in its engine size, the more powerful G63 model remains the same. It keeps its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine, boasting 577 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, along with the 48-volt mild-hybrid system found in the standard model. This powerhouse can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. The 2025 updates for both the G550 and G63 models include minor visual enhancements. Notably, the G63 offers a new Manufaktur Hyper Blue Magno color option, comes with adaptive LED headlights as standard, and features an updated bumper design. Customers can choose from six different sizes of wheels, ranging from 20 to 22 inches. A new nine-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter has been introduced, providing a broader range of gear ratios. Standard all-wheel drive features a 40-60 torque split. Despite the reduced engine size in the G550, its off-road capabilities remain impressive. It includes three mechanical differential locks and a transfer case that allows for low-range off-road gearing. The vehicle maintains its 9.5 inches of ground clearance and its 30- and 31-degree approach and departure angles, respectively. Mercedes has incorporated an Off-Road Cockpit feature into the MBUX infotainment system to enhance the off-roading experience. This feature shows information such as the vehicle’s position, altitude, steering angle, and temperature on a 12.3-inch touchscreen and digital instrument cluster, with customization options available for users. Additionally, the “Transparent Hood” feature, originally found in the EQE and GLC, is also included, enabling drivers to see the ground beneath the front end of the car through a 360-degree camera system. Mercedes has not disclosed the price for the updated G-Class. The 2024 model began at $144,150, with the G63 priced at $180,950. Prices for the 2025 models are anticipated to increase slightly.
