And Now There is One: Mercedes to Discontinue G-Class Two-Door

Erick AyapanaMay 6, 2011
The long-running G-Class will still soldier on despite the discontinuation of the two-door variant (not offered in the United States). Mercedes-Benz recently announced the release of special edition G-Classes to mark the end of production of the short wheelbase, two-door G-wagen.

The Final Edition package is exclusive to the two-door and is distinguishable by the body color-matched AMG flared wheel arches and exclusive twin-spoke AMG rims. The four-door will receive the Edition Select package which includes blacked out 18-inch rims, an AMG sports exhaust and a two-tone paint job. Customers will have a choice of "designo" edition colors for the body while the bumpers, side flaps and side mirrors will be painted black. Interior touches for the four door G-wagen include two-tone leather with contrast stitching and piano-black wood accents.

The G-Class first saw duty more than three decades ago for use in the German military and, apart from powertrain upgrades and a few facelifts, is mostly unchanged. While these new special edition packages only reinforce the fact that the G-Class will mostly report to mall duty rather than a war zone, it is still very much a capable off roader with permanent all-wheel drive and locking differentials. Euro-spec G-wagens will come with a choice of diesel and gas engines, while the U.S. will likely stick with the same 5.5-liter V8 engine rated at 382 horsepower.
