About this vehicle

Meet the Geländewagen — or what’s better known as Mercedes-Benz’s six-figure uber-capable off-road king crafted in luxury SUV rugged elegance.

Nicknamed the G-Wagen for short, the G 550’s entry-level price tag rings in at $131,750 and comes equipped with a hefty 415-hp 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission. It offers immense power of 5.6 seconds in the 0-60 acceleration test and a full-out speed of 130 mph — and terrible fuel economy.

The EPA estimates the G550 to earn 13 mpg for city vs. 17 mpg highway driving but real-world experience says it yields 15 mpg in the city, so you’ll guzzle your way to a maximum range of 365 miles in no time.

The G 550 sports a sturdy frame with its signature tall, blocky design that makes it about as aerodynamic as the broad side of a tool shed. But stay tuned, because where this vehicle truly shines is its extreme off-roading capabilities.

Navigating along a path that’s gravel on one side with rocks and ruts on the other? No problem. This vehicle has 9.5 inches of ground clearance, a two-speed transfer case, three differential wheel-lock settings and 4WD that allow it to navigate through anything, including water of just over two feet deep.

And you’ll take inclines like a boss, too — this SUV is able to traverse a side slope at 30° on two wheels only, and solidly rocks the 100% grade-climbing demonstration (i.e. a 45° slope, where rise equals run) without tipping. That’s essentially vertical. Mind. Blown.

Its safety features included as standard are forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology, and lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, plus:

  • Automatic high-beam headlights.
  • Lane-keep assist and lane-departure warning with blind-spot monitoring.
  • Pedestrian detection.
  • Parallel and perpendicular park assist.
