2017 Mercedes-Benz G550

There isn’t another car quite like the classic Mercedes-Benz G-Class. While often seen as a bold luxury vehicle, the G550 holds top-tier off-roading capability. Locking differentials make off-road treks a breeze. High clearance allows the G-Class to prance over tough terrain without hesitation. What Mercedes-Benz did right with the G-Class many years ago is still there today – a car that not only now looks fantastic, but also is fully ready to take on any conditions. Not everyone is eager to take such an icon car off the beaten bath – but it’s more than ready to go if you are!

2017 Mercedes-Benz G550

For 38 years, the G-Class has been built by hand to put the world at your feet. It’s been conquering lonely lands and crowded cities. Winning accolades, and earning loyalty. Venturing far, and returning home. Some say the G-Class is a living legend. But in every journey taken, every moment captured, and every dream set free, its stories are pure nonfiction. Inside every G-Class, there’s a lifetime of experience. And a driver who’s enjoying the experience of a lifetime.

Created to endure the challenges of six continents, the 38-year evolution of the G-Class keeps elevating the pinnacle of refinement. From its advanced lighting to its classic upright shape, its purposeful elegance is both unmistakable and irrefutable. An icon of timeless modernism, every surface of the G-Class reflects its confident capability on any surface of the earth.

Advanced performance comes from a high-output engine that’s more responsive yet more fuel-efficient. A 416-hp 4.0-liter biturbo V-8 outputs 450 lb-ft of peak torque, and can rush the G 550 4MATIC to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds. Its innovative design combines racing-derived technology, from its turbocharger layout to its low-friction cylinder walls. And an ECO Start/Stop system helps save fuel and emissions at stoplights.

Rugged as the G-Class is, its cabin is outfitted to make sure you’re never roughing it. Its handcrafted workmanship is matched by its cutting-edge technology, from its state-of-the-art COMAND system to its soothing ambient lighting. Its front and rear seats are heated, while the front row is also treated to ventilated and multicontour seating.
