Mercedes has officially dropped the drapes around the brand new 2013 Mercedes G-Class, the next in a line of luxury-class SUVs. The new G-Class sports subtle updates in design, but the most exciting changes arrive under the hood. The 2013 G will be powered by a range of engines, led by a top model featuring a 612-hp twin-turbo V12 engine that provides plenty of power and performance on the road and off. Whether you’re climbing a craggy cliff, towing the boat to the docks or passing slower traffic on the freeway, the latest G-Class is as functional as it gets. Compared to other SUVs, however, it is the form that sets this one apart. The retro-inspired styling, the refined and comfortable interior put some nice features around that powerful V12 heartbeat. It’ll arrive in the States in August, available for an expected price at just over $100k.
