Mercedes-Benz took a bold step in that direction with its G500, which evolved from the no-compromises European Geläendewagen and debuted during the 2002 model year.
Soon after its introduction, Mercedes-Benz began to offer a high-performance G55 AMG edition that was powered by a hand-built, 349-horsepower, 5.5-liter V-8 engine. The company says the limited-production G55 AMG accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. Special features include “designo” Charcoal Nappa leather upholstery and AMG-designed stainless-steel doorsill trim. Only about 300 G55 AMG models are available each year in the United States.
New standard equipment for 2004 includes multicontour seats, a Harman Kardon premium audio system and rear parking assist.
Mercedes-Benz focuses largely on road-going manners with its M-Class model, while the G-Class is a hard-core offroad machine. The German automaker claims that it will climb an 80-percent grade and remain stable on a 54-percent lateral slope. Handcrafted in Graz, Austria, the G500 faces such competitors as the BMW X5, Hummer H1 and Land Rover Range Rover.
