CARS.COM — We’re still doing this? Really? All right, all right. Here’s the latest tease of the redesigned 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class from the folks in Stuttgart. We were this close to being correct with our prediction, too. Here’s what we said about the previous, sand-obscured-G-Wagen teaser: “Following this trend, expect to see more bits of the iconic SUV partially obscured by mud, spray from a puddle and, ultimately, a very large boulder.”
Turns out that all three of those things would appear in one teaser image, as the opulent off-road cube kicks up some mud and water driving through a riverbed, surrounded by boulders. Mercedes-Benz likely had to combine these three things into one photo, as there wasn’t enough time to release them individually before the new G-Class debuts next week at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Further details about the G-Class beyond what we’ve already published remain elusive, but expect the rest of the information about the new G-Wagen to start flowing as the Detroit auto show kicks off. Cars.com, of course, will be on site to bring you all the new-model action straight from the exhibit floor — so check back often.
