RUMOR: The G-Class could go as far as 2020

Hardly a confirmed news, there's word in the industry that Daimler AG is close to renewing the partnership with Magna Steyr to continue the assembly of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class (W 463 generation) up to 2016. The on-going contract, signed in 2009, expires by 2015 and it appears the increase in production and demand for the Gelandewagen are the reasons for the possible extension. There is also a slight chance the agreement between the two could run up to 2020, even though Mercedes-Benz has already took the decision to discontinue the short-wheelbase variant and a final G-Class facelift series will be unveiled soon, probably at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
