We've seen spy shots of the G-Wagen before, and it doesn't seem much has changed in the few months since then. The photos show many of the current models design cues, like an external spare, have carried over. The new G-Wagon is set to grow in size, both in width and length. That will provide some much needed improvement in interior space. Expect the new model to lose a lot of weight in order to boost fuel economy. Most controversial for some fans may be the move to an independent front axle.
There's no word on what may power the new model, but Mercedes recently announced a new inline six-cylinder engine, so there's a chance we'll find that under the hood. Expect the popular AMG models to follow. Look for the full reveal of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class at an auto show in the next few months.
