Superior off-road performance is the origin and goal of the G-Class. In our "Teaching Tech" series, we explain the function and interaction of the key components that have made the G-Class an off-road icon.
Since its premiere over 40 years ago, the G-Class has been writing its very own success story and continues to impress with its iconic design, on-road comfort and safety and impressive off-road driving characteristics. Thanks to further technical development, it continues to outdo itself – especially off the beaten track.
The fact that it performs unlike hardly any other vehicle is due to the intelligent combination of different technologies – from the classic ladder frame to state-of-the-art software for controlling the driving programmes. In our new "Teaching Tech" series, we take a closer look at some components and explain how they contribute to the outstanding off-road performance of the G-Class.
Teaching Tech – No.1
The ladder frame.
As a member of the G-Class Private Lounge, you will receive exclusive background information on the ladder frame with attached bodywork, which has formed the basis of the G-Class since the first generation in 1979 and offers numerous advantages off-road.
Teaching Tech – No.2
Help in extreme situations.
While the permanent all-wheel drive of the G-Class ensures full control even in extreme situations, the rigid axle enables constant ground clearance. As a member of the G-Class Private Lounge, you can find out what other advantages this combination brings in the second part of our “Teaching Tech” series.
Teaching Tech – No.3
Maximum off-road performance.
In the third part of our "Teaching Tech" series, you as a member of the G-Class Private Lounge will learn all about the differential locks of the G-Class. We explain how they can help drivers out of seemingly hopeless situations and what other technologies they are networked with.
Teaching Tech – No.4
To find out how the G-Class' "G-Mode" and off-road camera contribute to its off-road driving characteristics, join us as a member of the G-Class Private Lounge in the fourth episode of our "Teaching Tech series.
