G-Class fanatics will be happy to hear that the exterior isn’t changing much for 2013, aside from LEDs underneath the headlights and new side mirrors.

They’ll be even happier to learn of the upgrades including radar-based cruise control, Blind Spot Assist, Parktronic, reworked ESP (to work with trailers), and an all new dash and console.

Yet, the power junkies won’t be satisfied with anything less than, well… more power. Which is why the G65 will come loaded with a 612-horsepower, 738-pound-foot twin-turbo V12 taken from the SL65 AMG.

Unfortunately for those of us in the U.S., the G65 won’t be available in the states… but surely the 544-hp, twin-turbo V8 G63 will suffice.
