Mercedes W460 G-Class History

Mercedes W460 Service Repair Manuals

The Mercedes G-class W460 midsize SUV was first offered as a civilian version in 1979, though initially designed as a military vehicle.

It was offered with two wheelbases: A short wheelbase (SWB) of 2,400 mm and a long wheelbase (LWB) of 2,850 mm, along with the choice of three body styles: A two-door swb convertible, a two-door swb wagon and a lwb four-door wagon. The Peugeot P4 was a variant made under license in France with a Peugeot engine.

History of the Mercedes Benz W460 and development of the G-Class started in 1972 with a cooperative agreement between Daimler-Benz and Steyr-Daimler-Puch in Graz, Austria. Mercedes-Benz engineers in Stuttgart were in charge of design and testing, while the team in Graz developed the production plans. The first wooden model was presented to Daimler-Benz management in 1973, with the first drivable prototype beginning various testing including, German coalfields, the Sahara Desert, and the Arctic Circle in 1974.

Construction commenced on a new production facility in Graz, where the new cross-country vehicle would be assembled nearly entirely by hand in 1975, along with production of the "G Model" beginning in Graz in 1979. In 1980, the Vatican took delivery of a specially made G-Wagen outfitted with a clear thermoplastic top which served as the Popemobile. The “Papa G” later took up permanent residence at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

W460 History of Modifications

  • 1981: The first major refinements were introduced in 1981, including an automatic transmission, air conditioning, an auxiliary fuel tank, protective headlamp grilles and a cable winch. Fuel injection became available in 1982, when the 230 GE was introduced in Turin, along with more comfortable and supportive front seats, auxiliary heating, wider tires and fender flares. For 1985, differential locks, central door locking and a tachometer became standard and by 1986 over 50,000 G Models had been produced.
  • 1990 460 ended 461 commenced??????
  • 1990: The G-Wagen was facelifted in 1990. In 1989, for the 10th anniversary of the G Model, a new model variant with wood-trimmed interior, permanent 4-wheel drive, and optional Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) debuted at the Frankfurt International Motor Show, with production beginning in April 1990.
  • 1991 460 to 461 transition https://silodrome.com/history-mercedes-benz-g-wagon/
  • 1992: For 1992, a new sub-series for professional users began production. The civilian model began to offer cruise control, a stainless-steel spare-tire cover, running boards and Burl Walnut wood interior trim. The same year, the 100,000th G Model was built in Graz.
  • 1994: In 1994, the model line was officially renamed from G-Model to G-Class. Ventilated front disc brakes and a driver’s air bag became standard.
  • 1996: In 1996 the automatic transmission became an electronically controlled 5-speed unit. Headlamp washers, cruise control and a front passenger’s air bag were added.
  • 1998: In 1998, the range-topping G 500 with a 296 hp V 8 was introduced for series production.
  • 1999: For 1999 a limited run of V 8 powered "G 500 Classic" special editions marked the model's 20th anniversary. A multifunction steering wheel was added to all models. Later in the year, the new G 55 AMG debuted as the most powerful G-Class yet, with 354 hp.
  • 2001: The U.S. market launch of the G-Class took place in 2001. New alloy wheels, a chrome grille and body-color bumpers plus a more luxurious cabin were introduced. New dynamic control systems included the Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Brake Assist and the 4 wheel Electronic Traction System (4 ETS).
  • 2004: The G 55 AMG was upgraded in 2004 with a supercharged V 8 engine developing 476 hp.
  • In Siberia in 2006, a documentary filmmaker was the first foreigner to reach the world’s coldest region with a passenger vehicle in winter, driving a stock G 500 nearly 19,000 km without a single breakdown, in temperatures as frigid as −63˚F/-53 °C.
  • 2007: For 2007 the output of the G 55 AMG was raised to an even 500 hp. Bi Xenon headlamps, corner-illuminating front fog lamps and new scratch-resistant nano-particle paint finishes were offered for the first time.
  • 2008: In 2008 more-refined instrumentation and controls were included in the G-Class cabin, along with the COMAND system with hard-drive-based navigation, a rear view camera, voice control, Bluetooth and a tire pressure monitoring system.
  • 2009 marked the 30th anniversary of the vehicle, with over 200,000 units having been manufactured in Graz since 1979.
