All Mercedes-Benz G-Class
models will in future offer up to 16 pc more power and lower fuel consumption.
The range includes the G 500 with a new, powerful 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine.
All engines are compliant with the latest Euro 6 emissions standard. A new
suspension setup, together with more sensitive ESP control results in increased
driving stability, safety and road comfort. The exterior and interior have also
been given an upgrade. At the same time, an exclusive AMG special edition will
be available, stated a press release from the company.
A new Colour package is
available for customers wishing to give their AMG G-Class an even more personal
look. There are exclusive exterior paint finishes in solar beam, tomato red,
alien green, sunset beam and galactic beam. Detachable parts such as mirrors,
front and rear bumpers, wheel arch extensions, the ring around the spare wheel
cover as well as the roof are painted in obsidian black. The interior
topstitching is colour-matched to the paintwork.
The new 8-cylinder powerplant
in the G 500 can point to an exclusive heritage. It is based on the new
generation of Mercedes-AMG V8 engines that have already coaxed exceptional
levels of performance out of the Mercedes-AMG GT and Mercedes-AMG C 63. For use
in the G-Class, the V8 has been modified to deliver 422 hp with torque of 610
Nm. Other standout attributes include a spontaneous response and high tractive
power which are made possible, for example, by two turbochargers, which instead
of being configured on the outside of the cylinder banks are arranged between
them in the V – the so-called "hot inside V". This layout allows a
compact design, optimal response and low exhaust emissions. High efficiency is
ensured by Mercedes-Benz's use of piezo direct petrol
injection with spray-guided combustion. Maximum strength with lowest
possible weight is guaranteed by the aluminium crankcase of the V8 engine.
