G65 AMG Won’t Hit US Shores

The high-performance Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG G-Wagen will not be accompanying the rest of its Mercedes-Benz G-Class brethren when they enter US territory later in 2012.

G-Class to Receive Minor Facelift ahead of Paris Motor Show

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an iconic vehicle. Technically speaking, the car is old enough to tell bedtime stories to modern cars. Launched over 31 years ago, the G-class has aged gracefully and slowly earned its reputation of being the best off-roader, the ‘old-school’ style. Though rarely, but the car has been updated by Mercedes-Benz to keep pace with the ever-changing automotive industry. Once again we are at a threshold of witnessing another design and technical update to the historical vehicle. According to trusted sources from inside the G-Klasse’s manufacturing facility at Graz, Austria, the vehicle is all set to receive a minor facelift.
