2009 Mercedes G-Class comes in for subtle revisions, more power


The Mercedes G-Class is like the tux and tails -- its remains in vogue no matter what's happening in the world around it. And like the tux, it looks pretty much like it did when it first arrived, and changes to it still don't come quickly.

For the '09 model, the G has been given Mercedes' new corporate face, so you can better associate it with that CL65 you've got parked next to it in the garage. The big news, though, is in the engine bay. The base V8 engine gets a whopping 90-horsepower bump from 292 to 382. Torque also gets seriously goosed from 336 ft-lb to 391. The boosted V8 and the AMG G55 get a much more modest boost of 7 horsepower for an even 500.

Otherwise, the squared one gets new wheels and electronics, including a new Telematics system. There is no word yet on whether the celebrity chariot will come to the U.S., but we're sure Britney really wants one.

I think the car is a solid but at the same time elegant. There have been enough nice changes such as front grille, evacuation with AMG insertio and some other things.
But something that I liked it a lot is the “Hill-start assist”. This is a sensor that knows if the vehicle is in the hill or valley. This sensor gives the driver time to click the throttle pedal without the car to move.
Interesting, huh?
