Mercedes-Benz is rolling out all the remaining details on its 2016 lineup which includes pricing info on the all-new GLC300 and GLC300 4MATIC, along with the iconic G-Class.
The all-new GLC300 and GLC300 4MATIC SUVs, which both arrive at dealerships in November, start at $38,950 (2WD) and $40,950 (4MATIC) respectively. Under the hood, the all-new GLC features a powerful 2.0 liter turbocharged inline 4 cylinder engine that generates 241hp and 273 pound-feet of torque and a new 9-speed automatic transmission. The GLC gets some styling tweaks, advanced safety systems and a larger interior both in the front and back.
The 2016 G-Class model also arrives at U.S. dealers in November. The G550 is priced at $119,900 and features restyled bumpers, enlarged wheel arches, and larger standard 19″ 5-spoke wheels. It also gets an updated instrument cluster and a brand-new and more fuel-efficient 4.0 V8 engine, derived from the AMG GT S and AMG C63 and rated at 416 hp (+34 hp) and 450 lb-ft (+59 lb-ft). The AMG G63 currently accounts for over half of all G-Class sales in the USA. Priced at $139,900, its engine output is increased to 563 hp (+27 hp) and maintains its powerful 560 lb-ft of torque since going on sale in Fall 2012.
The U.S. will also see the AMG G65 in showrooms, after only being available overseas since 2012. Priced at $217,900, it joins the SL65 and the S65 sedan and coupe in an exclusive price range and features a powerful 12-cylinder biturbo engine with 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re looking for an AMG Sport performance model, there’s the new C450 AMG which boasts a 3.0 liter biturbo V6 that has been uprated by AMG to produce 362 hp and a stout 384 lb-ft of torque.
