G-Class Propels Top German Offroader to Victory

With the cooperation of Mercedes-Benz and Continental Tires, German magazine ‘auto motor und sport’ recently held the Offroad Challenge 2010. Last May, auto motor und sport signed up more than 500 drivers to participate in the Offroad Challenge 2010. The magazine’s selection process reduced the list of hopeful candidates to 60.  The preliminary round was composed of groups of 20, who then competed on three difficult off-road courses in Brandenburg, Rheinland-Pfalz and Bavaria during the months of July and September. The best three from each round were then given the opportunity to travel to the U.S. for the final round, held at the Continental test site in Uvalde, Texas, which pushed… Continue Reading »

It’s been a long while since we last saw the much-adored G-Class Wagon.

Mercedes-benz G350 BlueTEC with state-of-the-art emission-control technology

The latest version of the classic Mercedes-Benz G-Class off-roader, now in its 31st year, features state-of-the-art BlueTEC technology.

The BlueTEC version of the G-Class uses AdBlue, an aqueous urea solution which is injected into the exhaust-gas stream. This process releases ammonia, which converts up to 80 percent of the nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and water by a process of reduction in the downstream SCR catalytic converter. Since the G-Class is often used in remote areas of the world – one of its main purposes – the engineers have simplified matters by integrating the… Continue Reading »
