The Mercedes-Benz G-Class Edition 550 is a new special edition of the rugged SUV.
Only 200 of them are going on sale.
The G-Class Edition 550 is available in three of Mercedes’ high-end Manufaktur colors: Jupiter Red, Arabian Grey, and Moonlight White, which is the newest addition to the color palette. This special edition also gets a new badge that shows the silhouette of a G-Class climbing a mountain.
Inside, the Edition 550 comes with two-tone Nappa leather upholstery that has diamond stitching. The special edition includes the active multi-contour front seats with active side bolsters. Carbon-fiber trim decorates the cabin.
The brush bar around the headlights and horizontal slats in the grille tells us that the Edition 550 uses the G 550 as its starting point. This grade uses a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that makes 416 horsepower (310 kilowatts) and 450 pound-feet (610 Newton-meters) of torque
. The power runs through a nine-speed automatic gearbox with a two-speed transfer case. The SUV gets to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 5.6 seconds.
The only info we have about the G-Class Edition 550 comes from a post on the Mercedes-Benz USA Facebook page. There’s no info about pricing or availability.
