2002 G-Class Overview

Mercedes-Benz has officially introduced its Gelandewagen to the U.S.The G-Class presents a utilitarian appearance with flat glass and flat body panels made of thick steel.It backs that up with its truck-based ladder-frame, permanent four-wheel drive, and a heavy-duty off-road suspension.The G prefix comes from the German word 'Gelandewagen,' which roughly translates to off-road car.The U.S.gets the top model, loaded with luxury features and the Mercedes 5.0-liter V8.

Its progenitor was born from a request by the Shah of Iran for some military vehicles.The Shah's existing military vehicles were too slow and cumbersome on normal roads, so Mercedes designed a sturdy utility vehicle that was ready for production by 1979.By then, however, the Shah had been deposed.Next, the Argentine army came to Mercedes, looking for an off-road car.Strained relations with Britain had prevented the Argentines from buying British Land Rovers, so there was pent-up demand.The current generation began production in 1989 and was revised last year, but overall, the looks haven't changed.
