The 300,000th Mercedes-Benz G-Class rolled off the assembly line at Magna Steyr in Austria this week sporting an eye-catching Mauritius Blue Metallic finish.


When Mercedes built the G500 4×4 squared, a lifted, hardcore off-road version of the G-Class, it made a lot of sense. Why not make your most capable off-roader even better? Well, now the brand has gone and done something totally nonsensical, and we love it.

Anyone who called their truck the “Mercedes of pickups,” has to find a new term, as the first-ever Mercedes-Benz pickup truck has been unveiled. 

Mercedes is gearing up to release its first pickup truck, called the X-Class, and you can watch the debut here. 

Heritage is always a consideration when automakers design new vehicles.

Brands love to bake a little past flavor into new models, in part to appeal to the nostalgia of buyers, but also to celebrate their past. Park a modern Mustang next to a classic and you’ll see a little bit of the past dictating the present.

Thor Motorworks, provider of conversion and restoration services for Mercedes-Benz G-Class vehicles, recently announced the release of its new G-Glass coil springs. The new springs will provide G-Wagen owners with a 1.5-inch (40mm) lift to accommodate larger wheel and tire combinations while maintaining better than factory performance.
