About Mercedes-Benz G550

It is offered in only one body style, 5-passenger SUV but comes in at least two trim levels: base G550 and G550 4x4. Equipped with many luxury items found in most modern Mercedes-Benz vehicles such as heated leather seats, keyless ignition and entry, adaptive cruise control and a navigation system as well as an extensive catalog of custom-order paints, leather colors and interior trim choices, Mercedes-Benz G550 now is powered with a 4.0 L turbocharged V8 cranking out 416 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque and this engine sends power through a 7-speed automatic transmission, a 2-speed transfer case to four wheels.
