Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon Sticks to its Roots
The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon has received only one major redesign since its introduction to the market 36 years ago. The company has plans to continue only making minor modifications because it doesn’t see a need to try and fix something that isn’t broken. The G-Wagon happens to be the slimmest vehicle within the Mercedes-Benz lineup, but its box-like stature optimizes the amount of space available in the vehicle. The vehicle offers an impeccable experience when off-roading; especially when the three differential locks are activated. The G550 was stripped of its previous engine and upgraded with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine that creates an output of 416 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. It gives the vehicle the capability to reach 60 mph in less than 5.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 130 mph. Inside the cabin, designers maintained the slim, narrow dashboard that has been part of the G-Wagon for decades. Mercedes-Benz Brampton can appreciate the brilliant history behind the G-Wagon.
