Enhanced agility and traction: 4MATIC all-wheel drive
The new transfer case is flange-mounted directly to the 9G-TRONIC. It is designed to send 40 percent of the drive torque to the front axle and 60 percent to the rear axle. This configuration particularly benefits the handling characteristics on the road. The permanent all-wheel drive ensures maximum traction. The “G”, being the “G”, always has more in store. The low-range off-road reduction gear considerably increases torque at the drive wheels, which makes very difficult terrain negotiable.

Stronger than time
The G-Class is the top model among luxury off-road vehicles in the Indian market today. It is not the only passenger car model series with the longest production run in the history of Mercedes-Benz, but also the forefather of all SUVs bearing the three-pointed star. A torsional rigid ladder-type frame of high-strength steel and a mounted body of composite construction provides the basis for the enormous off-road capabilities of the new G 350 d. This design is considerably more robust and suitable for off-road operations than a uni-body construction. The body shell consists of various grades of steel while the wings, bonnet and doors are made of aluminium.
