2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Teased in New Video

All-new SUV makes world debut in Detroit on January 15

The new 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class makes its world debut this month at the 2018 Detroit auto show. More than 300,000 Geländewagens have been sold since the iconic vehicle made its original debut back in 1979. The boxy SUV has remained roughly the same over the years with subtle and minor upgrades until now. Mercedes released a new teaser video on YouTube that opens with a dramatic score and lots of quick shots of a vintage G-Wagen.

The one-minute video opens on a prehistoric lake with a water bug trapped in amber. The camera sinks deeper into an amber filled lake while the January 15, 2018 date is teased along with more insects and the words "stronger than time" flashing on screen.

The camera lens continues to plunge and pan across what looks like an original G-Class that's suspended in a giant cube of amber. It all ends with the tagline "The DNA lives on."

We don't get to see what the new exterior looks like yet, but we imagine it won't stray too far from the iconic looks of its predecessors.

However, we do know that the cabin's interior has received a major upgrade, along with plenty of state-of-the-art driver assist safety technology. It is also roomier and front legroom is up 1.5 inches while legroom in the rear is up a whopping 5.9 inches. Also, shoulder width is up by 1.5 inches in the front and 1.1 inches in the rear. The rear cargo area is about the same as the previous model and the rear seats can fold 60/40/100. There's more cup holders and stowage space throughout the cabin.

We'll know more about the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class when it finally makes its debut on January 15 in Detroit.
