The three STRONGER THAN TIME Editions to mark the anniversary year, including an AMG variant, are a real birthday treat.
The Mercedes-Benz special models for 40 years of the G-Class are available in two engine versions. Exclusively available for the special model, the most powerful expansion stage of the new inline six-cylinder diesel engine OM 656 is available as the G 400 d (combined fuel consumption: 9.6 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 253 g/km)*. With an output of 243 kW (330 hp) and an impressive maximum torque of 700 Nm at 1200 to 3200 rpm this top-of-the range engine offers a generous portion of driving pleasure. At the same time it is systematically designed to meet future emissions legislation (RDE – Real Driving Emissions). All components relevant for efficient emissions reduction are installed directly at the engine. This contributes to faster effectiveness of the catalytic converter and the diesel particulate filter. High-tech features such as the stepped-recess combustion process, the two-stage exhaust-gas turbocharging and the use of the variable valve train CAMTRONIC also ensure increases in efficiency.
The Mercedes-Benz Editions are alternatively available as the G 500 . Here a high-performance 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine ensures powerful propulsion. The biturbo produces an output of 310 kW (422 hp) and a maximum torque of 610 Nm at 2000 to 4750 rpm.
The Mercedes-Benz models to mark the G-Class anniversary come in AMG Line guise, so they have flared wheel arches, AMG design elements in the bumpers and an exterior protective strip, brake callipers with Mercedes-Benz lettering and, in the case of the G 500, also a sports exhaust system. The drivers also hold a flattened steering wheel in their hands. Thanks to the Stainless Steel Package the side running boards, spare wheel cover, door sills and the loading sill protection at the rear are of a very high quality. The standard-fit Night Package gives the special model darkened lights as well as outside mirrors, a spare wheel ring and design elements in the bumpers in obsidian black and tinted rear windows.
Both the two Mercedes-Benz variants and the Mercedes-AMG model of the STRONGER THAN TIME Editions offer extensive standard equipment, including:
– Driving Assistance Package
– Suspension with adaptive damping system
– Parking Package with 360° camera
– MULTIBEAM LED headlamps
– (not in conjunction with headlamp grilles)
– Widescreen Cockpit
– Active Multicontour Seat Package
– Burmester® surround sound system
– Ambient lighting with 64 colours and ten colour schemes
– EASY-PACK load compartment cover
– Electric glass sliding sunroof with convenience and automatic rain-sensor closing function, obstruction sensor plus PRE-SAFE® closing function
– Painstaking attention to detail is revealed by a further feature, which is impressively showcased at night: the surround lamp projects the “G” logo and the lettering “STRONGER THAN TIME” onto the asphalt. This lettering is also found on each of the badges on the outside on the A-pillar and in the leather-covered grab handle in front of the front seat.
The Mercedes-Benz Editions are available in two looks: traditionalists will be delighted by a variant whose interior is characterised by black nappa leather with golden topstitching as well as trim elements in open-pore black ash. The exterior paintwork options available for selection are G manufaktur manganite grey magno, G manufaktur monza grey magno, G manufaktur citrine brown magno, G manufaktur olive metallic, G manufaktur diamond white, obsidian black and mojave silver. If customers choose one of the three matt paint colours the obsidian black features from the Night Package are in G manufaktur night black magno, and this also applies to the radiator grille and the flared wheel arches. The eyecatching features of this variant are the black 20-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels and the protective grilles on the headlamps.
Anyone wanting a particularly exclusive G-Class can opt for the special model with the luxury two-tone Exclusive Interior Plus in macchiato beige / yacht blue with trim elements of high-gloss light brown Sen wood or in the combination macchiato beige / lounge red, with the trim parts in the instrumental panel and centre console in black piano lacquer. Diamond white, mojave silver, obsidian black, brilliant blue and selenite grey are available as paintwork for the G manufaktur.
The traditional and also the exclusive Mercedes-Benz special model of the G-Class have leather-covered grab handles on the roof lining, and the instrument panel is also covered with nappa leather.
