Created to conquer challenges on 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. Every surface of the G-Class reflects its confident capability on any surface of the earth. Its sturdy ladder frame and galvanized steel body are hand-welded. The frame is flowed with hot wax to resist corrosion. Even its wiring harnesses are hand-loomed. It takes more than 40 hours to craft each G-Class virtually entirely by hand. Beyond strength, more than quality, how a G-Class comes to life bestows it with unwavering character. An advanced V8 biturbo engine generates 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque from a compact 4.0 liters of displacement. Able to thrust the G550 from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds, it features a “hot inside V” turbo layout, patented low-friction NANOSLIDE® cylinder walls, and an ECO Start/Stop system. The standard G-Class permament all-wheel drive system continually sends power to all four wheels. Its 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®) instantly apportions torque to the wheels that can use it best, for surefooted grip on snowy and wet roads. Off-road, its locking differentials help you conquer muddy, loose or uneven terrain. Timeless, meet fearless. With nerves of hand-welded steel, the new G550 4×4-squared raises every measure of G-Class capability. Gear-driven portal axles and 22-inch wheels create over 17 inches of ground clearance. Dual spring-struts and 10 inches of added track conquer extreme terrain, yet they let you enjoy its lavish cabin on any road.
