August, 2018 – T. Gargour & Fils, the exclusive distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Lebanon, launched the new G-Class as it arrived to Lebanon via airfreight and is available for test drive upon special appointment. The arrival of the timeless icon has been long awaited by current ‘G’ owners and car enthusiasts, with the new G-Class presenting itself in top form both on and off the road.
Stronger than time, the external appearance of the G-Class has hardly changed since 1979 – becoming an instantly recognizable model in Mercedes-Benz’s extensive and renowned model line. The exposed wheel on the rear door and the prominent indicator lights are some of the unique design elements that have been carried over to the new generation model, giving the car a defining character on the road as well as in the terrain.
While the car’s exterior preserves an iconic silhouette, the interior underwent a significant modern redesign, inspired by and reflecting the G-Class’s original DNA which harmoniously blends off-road attributes with first-class luxury details.
Mr. Cesar Aoun, General Manager of Mercedes-Benz at T. Gargour & Fils said: “The new G-Class is setting the bar higher still in all relevant areas – in terms of performance both on and off the road as well as with regard to comfort and telematics. Our ‘longest-serving’ model series is therefore ideally equipped to continue its success story. In short, the new ‘G’ is still a ‘G’, only better”.
With continuous enhancements done over the past decades, the G-Class has always been ahead of its time when it comes to technology and form: while Dynamic Select now unites up to five driving modes, allowing the driver to adjust vehicle characteristics that suit him best in a matter of seconds and with a touch of a button, the remarkable new G-Mode improves the car’s off-road performance by ensuring optimum control and maximum off-road capability. In addition, the ‘G’ is 53 mm longer and 121 mm wider – a body modification that gives it an even more imposing and regal stance on the road.
Experience the new G-Class. Made from unique DNA. Built for extreme challenges. Ready to create history.
