2013 Mercedes G-Wagen shows up quietly

The Gelaendewagen, the legendary Mercedes-Benz that has lived on for over three decades in its same attire, appears to have been given some touch-ups for 2013, as seen in this early photo.

Apparently for 2013, the new Mercedes-Benz G-Class, better known as the G-Wagen, will sport LED running lamps under the headlights, redesigned mirrors and visibly nothing much else. The new G-Class will also feature a reworked interior including a new instrument panel, steering wheel and consoles. It looks to be a non-AMG model.

However, the bigger change, as rumours suggest, is that the AMG variant of the G-Wagen, the G55, will get the 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, as used in the other AMG models. There is no further information available regarding the new G-Wagen, though the picture suggests that we may have the official details soon enough.

Expect the new Mercedes G-Wagen to arrive in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and rest of the GCC later this year.

What do you think?



  1. mate, these drive around already for months. you can look at them inthe showroom with exactly the two slight changes you state above.

    • Actually, Brabus came up with that LED mod first. Brabus bits are sold through dealers here, and the headlight kit seems to be popular.
