The G550 4x4 Squared is a luxury off-road vehicle from Mercedes-Benz powered by a 4.0-liter V8 with 416 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a standard four-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission, that’s enough power to drive the G550 from 0-60 mph in less than seven seconds.
The G550 4x4 Squared is a heavy vehicle, weighing in at just less than 6,700 pounds and has a towing rating of 7,000 pounds. It sits over seven feet tall and 82 inches wide, courtesy of a special off-road suspension. The vehicle’s ground clearance is 18 inches, double that of a Ford Raptor. Most of the ability is attributable to the new portal axels, which places the actual axles much higher in the vehicle and drives the wheels through a set of gears.
Mercedes-Benz kept production of the G550 4x4 Squared very low, with somewhere around 300 units being made for the United States. Pricing for the base G550 starts around $123,000, but the G550 4x4 Squared has a starting price of $225,925.
