A Mercedes-Benz vehicle can become whatever you imagine it to be, and the latest addition to the G-Class may be among its most limitless creations yet. This vehicle is exclusive for Model Year 2017 and available in small quantities only.
Introducing the 2017 G550 4x4 Squared, a G-Class Wagon with commanding good looks, a world-class Mercedes pedigree, and unprecedented, legendary off-road performance capabilities.
Read on to learn how the colossal new G550 is turning heads, both on and off the asphalt.
The G550 Engineered for Adventure
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class was already known for its combination of an elevating, elegant look with engineering that can tackle any surface or situation—but the 2017 G550 4x4 Squared takes that concept to an entirely new level.
Fearlessly and aggressively constructed, the new G550 raises the bar—literally—with 22-inch wheels and a ground clearance of over 17 inches, supported by its uniquely engineered portal axles.
“Once situated in the carbon-fiber-and-leather trimmed cabin, your view out is commanding,” says Cars.com. “This is the view that truck drivers have from the cab of their tractor-trailer rigs.”
Performance-wise, the G550 4x4 Squared is right at home with the rest of the G-Class, with a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine capable of 416 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Add all of that to the G-Class’s galvanized steel frame, and you’ve got something that ratchets off-road potential up to an entirely new level.
“We’ve already driven the thing, and its recipe versus the already extremely robust G550 is more of everything: 7.9 inches of extra clearance, 15.8 inches of additional wading depth, a 21.6-degree-steeper approach angle, 23.4 degrees more on the breakover, and 13.8 extra degrees on departure,” says Car and Driver. “Three feet of water? No problem. Boulder in your path sticking up a foot and a half? The 4×4² can straddle it with an inch to spare.”
The end result is a vehicle that quadruples your potential for exhilarating rides in any circumstances—then quadruples it again.
Attention to Detail
As capable as the new G550 4x4 Squared is in off-road territory, it’s equally at home pulling up to a nightclub. After all, this is a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, and it boasts all of the refinements and accoutrements that its name implies.
In fact, every single G550 is crafted and inspected almost entirely by hand, from welding to stitching—a process that takes about 40 hours per vehicle. The result? An opulent and unmistakably perfect look, with a beautiful, ergonomic interior that complements its bold, upright exterior.
It’s customizable, too, with dozens of colors, Nappa leather options, wood and carbon fiber features, and a variety of paint finishes, from classic to modern matte.
And like any vehicle in the modern Mercedes lineup, that attention to detail extends to its state-of-the-art, world-class technological and safety features. For the new G550, these include radar-assisted DISTRONIC cruise control, PARKTRONIC parking assistance, and mbrace® Connect, enhanced with mobile and digital features that seamlessly connect your G550 to the rest of the world.
The G550 4x4 Squared delivers an unparalleled off-road experience, along with the performance, luxury, and comfort that we’ve come to expect from Mercedes-Benz. To learn more about these incredible new vehicles, contact your Benzel-Busch Account Representative today!
