A picture is worth a thousand words. Facing the temptation of this yellow Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4, I believe no one can refuse. Even if you are a person who is not interested in SUV models or even cars, you have to admit that this car has already given you the urge to “sell your hands”, but don’t worry, because this product is really not consumed by ordinary people From the start, ordinary local tyrants can’t do it. And the output is quite “poor”, and you may not be able to buy it if you have money. The car in front of you is currently the only one in the US market. Friends who are somewhat “face-blind” about the Mercedes-Benz G-class models may find it difficult to point out the difference between it and the ordinary G-class models, but you must know the three-axle G63 6×6 pickup truck, and the G500 4×4 in front of you can be regarded as a Abandoned the 6×6 of the third axle, now can you imagine the true strength of this car? Today we will give a targeted introduction to some special features of this car, making it easier to read and understand, and understand the essence of this car.
Although it has a roughly similar “box” shape to the regular G model, there are too many differences in the details. Maybe you still insist on the concept that large displacement is not environmentally friendly, but facing such a car, who cares whether it is environmentally friendly? Even environmentalists can’t help but keep it in their pockets. The big deal is that the parking garage will not be opened. Mercedes-Benz G is like a toy for adults, but this G500 4×4 can be said to be a high-end toy with exquisite workmanship.
different driving experience
Even consumers who are familiar with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class will immediately feel a big difference after sitting in the driver’s seat of this car. The first is the difference in vision. Indeed, the fully upgraded G500 chassis has changed almost all the driving characteristics. Although it cannot be described as “crazy”, it can definitely refresh anyone’s “world view”.
The acceleration performance of this car is not fast, even not as good as G63 or G65, but there is no need to worry about it. After all, the height of this car has already shown that it does not intend to compete with competitors (if there are rivals) to accelerate 100 kilometers. . The overall driving experience of this G500 4×4 can be described as “comfortable”. Although the chassis design is not oriented towards comfort, it is actually easier to control when driving than imagined.
Wide body is king
The body width of this car has reached 2134mm, which is 305mm wider than a normal version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class! Some people may ask, how can such a wide body drive in a crowded street? Come on, driving this car in the city is a waste of money. This guy can conquer the desert and the swamp. Who would use it to travel in the city? ?
boarding? climb car?
G500 4×4 is really too high, even 10cm taller than Yao Ming, reaching 2.36 meters. If you want to get on the bus, you really need to use your hands and feet together, and you can get up with an inelegant posture.
Carbon fiber widebody same as 6×6
Engineers extended the fenders with carbon fiber, the same design found on the 6×6 pickup.
amazing ground clearance
Among urban SUVs with less than 200mm of ground clearance, the G500 4×4 has a ground clearance of 457mm, the same as the 6×6 model. See, this is the real off-road vehicle, those urban SUVs just look like an off-road vehicle, without the essence at all.
Hard-core off-road essential: portal axle
The chassis of the G500 4×4 is basically directly transplanted from the 6×6 model, except that one axle is missing, and the front and rear axles still maintain the design of the portal axle—this is also one of the greatest values of this car. You must know that this design is basically seen in military models, such as the Unimog and Hummer H1, and Mercedes-Benz has now put it on the G-class model, and its performance can be imagined at will.
Although this car has only four wheels, it uses 8 shock absorbers and 8 springs. This setting is not only different from the ordinary version of the G-class model, but also different from the 6×6 model. According to Mercedes, one of the two shock absorbers has fixed damping, while the other has adjustable damping, so that the switch between sports and comfort modes can be realized, and the switching time only needs 15 milliseconds-quick enough.
This is a Mercedes, not an AMG
Despite many similarities to the G63 AMG 6×6, this 4×4 isn’t really an AMG, it’s a serious Mercedes. The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 under the hood wasn’t hand-built either, it’s just a Mercedes!
The painting of this car in the picture is very beautiful, electroplated bright color painting is also an option for this car, and the price is as high as 19,500 US dollars, which should not be bad for local tyrants.
The size of the four Pirelli Scorpion ATR tires is 325/55R22, which can be said to be the largest mass-produced civilian car tires we have ever seen. You must know that the rear tire size of the top sports car like Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is only 355/25ZR21.
Same bumper as 6×6
Although this car is not an AMG, it uses the same front and rear bumpers as the AMG 6×6, which looks simple and rough.
Decorative LED searchlights
We spent half an hour looking for the switch for the searchlight, but were disappointed, it looks like this G500 4×4 just borrowed the LED searchlight from the 6×6 in design, but the engineer forgot to wire it.
Compared with the changes in the chassis, the interior of this G500 4×4 has almost no changes compared with other G-class models. There is no doubt about the luxury and comfort. If you have money, you can continue to choose upgrades.
The engine under the hood is exactly the same as the regular G550 model. The twin-turbocharged eight-cylinder engine has a maximum power of 416 horsepower and a peak torque of 610N m. Of course, all car fans are looking forward to the 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine on the 6×6.
