    Mercedes-Benz is keeping their mouth shut on the refreshed G-Class. But, that hasn't stopped Mercedes-Benz of New Orleans from accidently revealing some information about the G-Class which will appear at next week's New York Auto Show.

    We're using "refreshed" lightly as the only changes for the G-Class include a row of LED lights underneath the headlights and sleeker mirrors.

    As for the powertrains, there is some big news. The current G500 will say goodbye to the 5.5L V8 for a new 4.8L turbo V8 and the G63 AMG will get a 5.5L twin-turbo V8 producing 563 horsepower. The long-rumored G65 AMG will come to fruition as well. The first V12 fitted to the G-Class will produce 621 HP and 737 lb-ft of torque thanks to two turbochargers.
