2021 Mercedes-Benz G-Class video

MARK TAKAHASHI: It's been 40 years since the G-Wagen appeared. But finally, we have a redesign in this, the 2019 Mercedes Benz G-Class. [MUSIC PLAYING] This G-Class for 2019 is bigger-- slightly bigger. But more importantly, it's better. It's better on the road, and it's better off-road. Under the hood is a 416 horsepower, 450 pound-feet of torque V8. It has an independent front suspension and rack and pinion steering versus the recirculating ball, which was horrible on the last G-Class. This one should drive better in every condition. On the inside, it should also be much nicer. So we have the design that's between E-Class and S-Class, with a dual-pane glass and really nice leather and great seats on top of that. It has all the amenities and advanced safety features you expect from a modern Mercedes-Benz. Expect it to show up sometime in late 2018, well above $100,000. So in a lot of ways, nothing has changed, but a lot has changed with the G-Class. For more information on the G-Class and all of its competitors, head over to edmunds.com.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Mercedes-Benz G-Class?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
