Photo spies lurking in the bushes were able to capture the hardcore version of the second generation Mercedes-Benz G500 4 × 4², which went for testing. From disguise, the SUV only has adhesive tape on the emblem, but it's easy to guess what kind of model it is. Pictures posted by Auto Evolution.
The features of the previous generation 4 × 4² version were portal axles that significantly increase ground clearance, wider track and large wheels. All this, judging by the photographs, will be in the car of the new generation. In addition, the SUV will receive a large visor with additional LED lights, a roof rack, a spare tire and a ladder installed at the rear.
- The standard Mercedes-Benz G500 is equipped with a 422 hp biturbo 4.0 V8. (610 Nm), nine-speed "automatic" and all-wheel drive with lowering and mechanical locks of all three differentials. It is not yet known whether the future 4x4² version will receive any technical improvements.
- According to preliminary data, the premiere of the new Mercedes-Benz G500 4 × 4² will take place in 2021.
The original Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4² was produced from 2015 to 2017. It had two shock absorbers per wheel, ground clearance increased from 210 to 450 millimeters, and the same 422-horsepower 4.0 V8. Due to the increased curb weight by 425 kilograms (3,021 kilograms), the acceleration time to 100 km / h was lengthened from 5.9 to 7.4 seconds, but the maximum speed did not change - 210 km / h. In 2017, an SUV cost about 20 million rubles in Russia.
