AutoWeek is reporting that the boxy fave of celebs, mercenaries and wannabees alike, the Gelaendewagen, or G-Class, will get a facelift in 2006. We reported last month that Mercedes would not discontinue the long-running G despite launch of the GL, a less-potent, large suburban SUV to be built alongside the M-Class in Alabama, due to strong demand. The G, which is built by Austria's Magna Steyr, will get a new range of engines — likely including the new, AMG-derived 6.3-liter V8 —
plus an interior makeover.
