The 2019 update is the most thorough redesign in the G-Class' 40-year history.

The 2019 G-Class only shares five parts with its predecessor: the headlight washers, sun visors, spare tire cover, door handles and a small bracket somewhere in the body structure.

Though it's known as the G500 elsewhere, the US-spec base model will be called G550.

The G550 uses Mercedes' awesome 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 416 horsepower, 450 pound-feet of torque and a 9-speed automatic transmission.

You can independently lock the front, center and rear differentials, meaning the G-Class is an absolute off-road monster.

This puddle? Piece of cake. The 2019 G550 can handle depths of up to 27.6 inches.

A new, independent front suspension and electromechanical steering rack make the G550 far nicer to drive than before.

It still looks super cool, and iconic G-Class elements like the chunky turn signals and exposed door hinges remain.
