The new Mercedes-Benz G-Class received a version for off-roadSeptember 15, 2019
The Brabus tuning workshop brought an off-road package for the new Geländewagen to the Frankfurt Motor Show. The set of improvements includes the completion of the interior and exterior, the modernization of the chassis for better geometric cross-country ability and engine boosting.
You can recognize the Brabus for off-road use by its 100 mm wide wings with branded overlays on the air intakes, special 20-inch Monoblock R wheels with 285/55 R20 off-road tires, a massive swing arm for the reserve and a ladder on the fifth door. In addition, an off-road version called the Brabus Adventure produces a reinforced front bumper with a winch, an original hood with slots, additional LED headlights and a roof rack.
The interior is altered according to the patterns of other Brabus models – the owner is waiting for a combination of thin quilted leather and Alcantara, aluminum pedals and other signature touches.
Brabus tuners increased Geländewagen ’s ground clearance by 40 millimeters by installing height-adjustable sports springs of their own design. Experts emphasize that the chassis upgrade is fully compatible with the standard electronically controlled suspension.
Brabus chose the diesel Mercedes-Benz G 350 d as the basis for the demo sample, however, an off-road kit can be ordered for Geländewagen with any engine. Engineers are ready to force the unit with heavy fuel for 44 horsepower, adding 60 Nm of torque, which allows the 3.0-liter inline “turbo six” to issue 330 horsepower and 690 Nm of torque. The increase is achieved through chip tuning and a new stainless exhaust system.
In addition to showing the “off-road” G-Class, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Brabus held a presentation of the new Geländewagen with a 900 horsepower twelve-cylinder engine. They took the 6.0-liter M279 engine, which was equipped with the top version of the previous generation AMG G 65. The Geländewagen does not have a factory version with a V12 engine in the current body.
