There are two versions of the beastly Mercedes-Benz G-Class: the G550 SUV and the G63 AMG®.  Both are peak examples of military vehicle defense meets unparalleled luxury and design.  The G-Class was based on military-grade SUVs and is nearly untouchable and unbreakable.  If you have precious cargo, or just really like to know you could literally plow through any other vehicle on the road, then the G-Class is for you.

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz G550 is powered by a 5.5-liter V8 paired to a seven-speed transmission, providing 382 horsepower and 391 lb ft of torque.  AMG®, Mercedes-Benz’s  high-performance division, created the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG® which is powered by a 5.5-liter V8 providing 544 horsepower and 560 lb ft of torque.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has the distinction of being at home on the streets of the city and in the mud puts of the rocky trail.  There’s nowhere you couldn’t go with this SUV Wagon while keeping everyone and everything inside safe.

Earlier today, we showed you a brace of images starring the refreshed 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK that will make its debut at the New York Auto Show next month. But upon closer inspection, the folks at CarScoop found something very interesting hiding in the back of one of the GLK photos: the revised 2013 G-Class.

It’s unclear exactly which G-Class model this is, though our best guess is that it’s the standard G550. (Those wheels look much too tame for an AMG model.) The G-Wagen’s overall design hasn’t changed (that’s fine, we like it just the way it is), but updates for the 2013 model year include LED running lamps under the headlights and redesigned mirrors.

Word on the street is that the G-Class will feature a reworked interior for 2013, including a new instrument panel, steering wheel and consoles. The big news, however, is that the G55 AMG will now make use of Merc’s 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 found in the other AMG models, though it’s unclear if its nomenclature will be altered. You know, because G63 AMG absolutely makes sense.

Mum’s the word on when the official G-Class details will be released, but since the car appears to be finished and already posing for photos, we don’t expect Mercedes-Benz to hold off for too much longer.
