The Mercedes G wagon is one of the ultimate offroad vehicles. Heck, the Saudi Arabian military uses them. Of course, glitzy soccer moms use them for grocery getters, too.
The new G wagon is more offroad than Whole Foods, so we hope people actually flog them like they should. Let’s start with the obvious – is has 6 wheels and 6 wheel drive! Power to those six wheels starts with a twin-turbo, 5.5 liter V8 throwing out 536hp and 560 ft lbs of torque. It then goes through a seven-speed automatic transmission into 5 locking differentials.
But is it offroad friendly? Hell yea it is. It can ford depths of almost 40″, you can inflate and deflate the tires from the cabin with just a push of a button, and the electronics make it so you can handle any surface and conditions the world can throw at you.
Let’s not forget the loaded soccer moms out there, however. The interior has plenty of leather and Alcantara, sport seats, great stereo, and a polished bamboo cargo bed. Rugged…
Rumors of prices and availability put it at $525,000 with 20-30 of them being built a year. But hey – if you want to be the first in line at a Prada sale, this is the car/truck/monster you need. We can’t wait to see the first one in a rap video!
