The off-road capabilities of the G-Class have assumed near legendary status amongst 4X4 aficionados – and it’s fully deserved. The permanent four-wheel drive, the 4ETS Electronic Traction System, the synchronised transfer case and the three 100% differential locks, all work together in perfect harmony to make the G-Class a match for the toughest terrain.
Fitted as standard, the innovative transfer case’s off-road ratio is a key component. Activated at the touch of a switch, it generates formidable traction, enabling a stunning gradient-climbing capability of up to 80%.
Similarly, the differential locks can be activated individually and in a logically specified sequence – so you can adapt the vehicle perfectly to its surroundings. If a wheel loses traction, the power is redirected to the wheels offering the best grip. Even if only one wheel is providing grip, you will still make good headway.
