Mercedes G-Class 4x4 Squared Spied Not Hiding Much

Come on, Mercedes. Just reveal it already.

In the new era of electrified crossovers and soft-roaders, we are glad there are still at least a few manufacturers that build capable off-road vehicles. Among them are Land Rover, Jeep, and Toyota - and even a luxury brand like Mercedes-Benz is still putting together the G-Class. In its latest form, it’s way more refined than its predecessor but it’s still not available in the more rugged 4x4 Squared version.

That will change very soon, it seems. Our spies have caught a camouflaged prototype of the lifted G-Class testing in winter conditions and refueling at a gas station. The test car looks almost ready for production, through the disguise hints at some final adjustments and evaluations.

Everything looks ready for the debut of the new hardcore G-Class but there’s no official launch date yet. Seeing how naked this prototype is, we suppose the grand premiere could take place in the next few months. With no Geneva Motor Show coming next month though, the debut should be in entirely digital form.
