The Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4 – Arriving Soon
Only a G-Class can be better than a G-Class. This is the credo followed by the developers with the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6, and they are now stepping up a gear with the G 550 4×4². The near-series show car is a new highlight in the superlative-rich history of the G-Class and blends all the advantages of the model series.
The 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine stands out for its sublime power delivery, the targeted lightweight construction, as well as its high efficiency. Producing 416 horsepower and 450 ft-lbs of torque, it features twin turbochargers which are not mounted on the outside of the cylinder banks but rather inside the V configuration – what is known as the ‘hot inside V’. The advantages lie in the compact engine design, the optimum response and the low exhaust gas emissions.
Due to the considerably wider track of the portal axles compared with the series-production car, the large 22-inch wheels and the adjustable damping with its Sport mode, the enhanced G-Class drives through bends so dynamically that the occupants feel as though they are in a sports car rather than a cross-country vehicle.
Mercedes-Benz Kamloops expects the G550 4×4² will arrive on our lots this September 2017, but you don’t have to wait until then to claim one for yourself. We encourage you to go ahead and pre-order the G550 4×4² as quantities will be limited. Interested in learning more about the G550 4×4²? Contact us!
