Initially a suggestion by the Shah of Iran to be developed as a military vehicle, the G-Class was first offered as a civilian version in 1979. The G-Class went on to represent the pinnacle of German luxury SUVs and remains a sought-after model today. Since 2016, the G550 was equipped with the new M176 engine that bumped up its numbers in terms of HP and torque. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz G550 example you see here resides in Georgia and is up for sale with just 11K miles on the clock.
Optioned with the AMG Night Package, this SUV features what Mercedes calls Obsidian Black Metallic exterior paint. In addition, this 2020 G550 has received several modifications. Starting with the exterior, you will observe a black-painted radiator grille up front protected by a stainless steel brush guard, stainless steel door sills and wider wheel arches for the AMG-style wheels running across the sides, a sliding sunroof up top, and twenty-inch AMG white alloy wheels painted black for a fresh finish. The interior consists of a black Nappa leather interior with the upper and lower dash embroidered in Nappa leather. The Stainless Steel Package offers a beautiful contrast to the interior, which Mercedes have labeled G Maufaktur interior plus, coming with treats like the Seat Comfort Plus package and a heated steering wheel. This G550 is clever, offering the driver tools such as a Fresh Air package, AMG ride control, active lane keep assists, blind-spot monitoring, a desert driving mode, Parktronic, Apple CarPlay, and smartphone integration that will play your favorite tunes courtesy of a Burmester surround sound system.
The G550 features an M176 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine coupled with a nine-speed automatic 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. It outputs 416 hp at 5,250–5,500 rpm and 450 lb-ft torque at 2,250–4,750 rpm
