At the same time this classic cross-country vehicle, which will arrive in Mercedes-Benz showrooms this October, has been treated to enhanced standard equipment which includes new AMG light-alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlamps, foglamps with a cornering light function and new paint finishes with greater scratch resistance, based on nano-technology.
“Both on and off-road, the G 55 AMG gives its occupants a feeling of serenity, exclusivity and dynamic potential,” said Lee Boyle, Regional Sales Manager, G-Class. “As always, the classic among Mercedes-Benz off-roaders provides a convincing synthesis of highly efficient drive and dynamic handling control systems.”
In addition to permanent all-wheel drive with a low-range gearbox, the standard appointments include the electronic traction system for all-wheel drive 4ETS, the Electronic Stability Program ESP® and differential locks which can be engaged at the touch of a button.
In addition to the classic G 55 AMG Kompressor, the Mercedes-AMG model lineup features two other powerful and versatile all-rounders: the new ML 63 AMG and R 63 AMG, both equipped with the 510 hp, naturally aspirated 6.3-litre AMG V8-engine.
Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, has been producing the G-Class on behalf of Mercedes-Benz since 1979, with more than 186,000 examples built to date.
