The 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a Quick Drive from Central Chicago and Oak Park

From the wheels up, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is designed for well-balanced traction, power, and handling. With each motion, the G-Class conveys strength and endurance, even when it’s not conquering rough terrain with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, or paving a path with three lockable differentials. If you’re shopping for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class in Chicago or Oak Park, hurry to Mercedes-Benz of Chicago to see this SUV for yourself!

Strong Engines, Resilient Drivetrain

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class offers three incredibly powerful turbo engines – one for each of its three models. The “hot inside V” turbocharger configuration delivers power to the engine cylinders quickly, resulting in minimal pressure loss. A smooth 7-speed automatic transmission comes standard under the hood of the G550, while the two AMG® G-Class models get a 7-speed AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® PLUS transmission with four driving modes. Permanent 4MATIC® all-wheel drive with a 2-speed transfer case ensures this Mercedes-Benz SUV is good to go on smooth and rocky terrains alike. As it cruises down the road, the G-Class SUV emits a low, steady rumble, thanks to its standard dual side-pipe exhausts. For added performance prowess, the AMG® G-Class models come equipped with:

  • AMG® sport exhaust with polished chrome finishers
  • AMG® E-SELECT gearshift with an embossed AMG® crest
  • AMG® high-performance braking system with red-painted calipers
  • Aluminum steering wheel-mounted shift paddles


G-Class Offroading

Towing and Off-Roading Capabilities

Carefully engineered for sturdy performance that simply doesn’t quit, the G-Class is capable of towing up to 7,000 pounds with Mercedes-Benz-authorized equipment. While the G-Class is in tow mode, Trailer Stability Assist monitors for signs of trailer sway, and applies the front brakes when necessary to prevent loss of control. Able to tackle the most unforgiving of conditions, these SUVs can climb an 80% grade using the following handling technologies:

  • 4MATIC® all-wheel drive
  • 4-Wheel Electronic Traction System®
  • Electronic Stability Program®
  • 19- to 21-inch wheels with all-season or available high-performance tires
  • Front and rear suspension systems with gas-pressurized shock absorbers

What’s more, the standard lockable differential system allows Chicago and Oak Park drivers to distribute torque to a center, rear, and frontal differential sequentially for the right amount of traction on any road surface.

Crafted for Comfort and Adventure

The interior of the G-Class represents the pinnacle of SUV luxury, and can be customized to suit your preferences and style. The G550 offers Black, Grey/Black, and Chestnut/Black leather upholstery, while the AMG® models brag an array of vibrant colors for the designo® Nappa leather surfaces. Seating inside the G-Class cabin is comfortable yet functional. The front and split-folding rear seats include a luxury heating function, while the front seats alone boast a 10-way power-adjustable feature with memory. The large, high-resolution COMAND® screen at the center of the cockpit is the interior operation base. Through this display and/or voice control, you can configure most standard infotainment features, including:

  • Bluetooth®* phone and audio interface
  • 80GB hard-drive navigation
  • Media Interface
  • 450-watt harman/kardon Logic 7®** sound system
  • HD Radio™
  • SiriusXM® Radio (6-month All Access trial)
  • In-dash DVD/CD player and SD card reader
G-Class Comfort


G-Class Distronic

Semi-Autonomous Driver Assist Systems

On many SUVs, safety features often vary from trim to trim. The G-Class trims, however, make the same proactive safety features available to every driver. The Bi-Xenon headlamps and rain-sensing wipers bolster visibility in harsh weather, while Blind Spot Assist acts as a second pair of eyes by detecting vehicles in your blind zones. As you travel with the flow of traffic, DISTRONIC PLUS® uses radar-based technology to set your speed accordingly, even braking autonomously if necessary. The rearview camera simplifies parallel parking, while PARKTRONIC® uses sensors to spot obstructions in the front and rear. The programmable Night Security Illumination system offers a guiding light from your vehicle to your door after you remote-lock your G-Class. Of course, these advanced driver assists are backed by the all of the must-have safety features Chicago drivers expect from an SUV, such as:

  • SmartKey remote
  • Thorough airbag protection
  • 3-point seatbelts with Emergency Tensioning Devices
  • Adaptive braking technology (including Hill Start Assist and Brake HOLD)
  • Anti-theft alarm system
  • Trailer Stability Assist
