There is another reason why the automobile enthusiasts would be waiting for the Detroit Motor Show. The new generation Mercedes-Benz G-Class would be unveiled on the first day of the Detroit Motor Show, that is, on January 15. This confirmation came from the company via a new video.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV will be even more luxurious and will have a strong link to the S-Class, which is evident by the previously leaked images. The G-Class will have some premium touches inside in the form of a cleanly designed dashboard and some metallic buttons on the steering. It will be getting more of the metallic touch on the AC vents surrounds, which could be quite contrary to its otherwise butch stature.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a staunch off-roader, which was first seen in 1979, and guess what, the essence of the same boxy appearance will be held too. Though not official yet, the next generation of the G-Class will be close to 2,435 kg in weight, as opposed to the 2,595 kg of the current and outgoing model. The wheelbase is also expected to be increased by 150mm, which would allow roomier rear seats and slightly bigger cargo capacity.

The new Mercedes G500 will be powered by a V8 4.0-litre turbo petrol engine which would be developed by AMG. The engine would be producing a maximum power 409 bhp along with a peak torque of 610 Nm. Also, the higher capacity AMG G63 will be getting a bigger engine than the outgoing model (which makes 555 bhp power and 759 Nm torque) taking the figures to 594 bhp and 850 Nm.

Also, we are expecting to see the new generation of the premium Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback as the official unveil seems to be approaching soon. So now we know, the German auto giant is looking forward to a very eventful year ahead.
