Even the toughest of conditions pose little problem to the new G-Class. The low-range gearbox adjusts the shift ranges of the 9G-TRONIC transmission to driving in off-road terrain and on uphill gradients. Pressing the LOW RANGE button in the centre console increases the torque at the wheels. As a result, negotiating very difficult off-road terrain, moving off on extreme uphill gradients as well as driving downhill are all possible with significantly enhanced braking performance.
