Mercedes Might Bring Its Neon Green Beast To The US


Great news for US off-roading fans with fat bank accounts.

Mercedes is currently pondering the idea of selling the G500 4x4 Squared in the US. To refresh your memory, the G500 4x4 Squared is the four wheel version of the six-wheel-drive G63 AMG 6x6. Yes, you got that right. To quote 'Top Gear' it is the four-wheel version, of the six-wheel version, of the four-wheel car that they already had. Ignoring this technicality, the G500 is a complete badass. The 4x4 shares the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 from the regular G-Class packing 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque.

These numbers may not sound insane, but this car's off-roading capability is. The G500 4x4 comes with three locking differentials with a widened track and portal axles giving it tremendous ground clearance and off-road ability. The G500 4x4 Squared sits right under the G65 AMG in the G-Class lineup with a price tag of $256,200. This is twice as expensive as a normal G-Class, but if you want the best off-roading performance money can buy, this is it. Speaking with Motor1, Mercedes General Manager of Product Planning, Bart Herring said that the company is "very close to a good decision" on selling the car in the US. For a few super rich individuals who live off the beaten path, Mercedes may have the perfect vehicle for you.
