When meeting the challenges off the beaten track, the driver receives additional assistance courtesy of the transfer case’s off-road ratio - specified as standard. One press of the low-range switch is all it takes to activate this feature. The transfer case then switches from the on-road ratio to the off-road ratio, generating low speed and maximum traction, and a stunning gradient-climbing ability of 80 %.
The permanent all-wheel drive, the 4ETS electronic traction system, the synchronised transfer case and the three 100 % differential locks, all work together in perfect harmony in the G-Class.
The differential locks can be activated individually and in a logically specified sequence. This way you can adapt the vehicle perfectly to its surroundings. If a wheel loses traction, the power is redirected to the wheels offering the best grip. Even if only one wheel is providing grip, your vehicle will still make good headway.
