Even if the first units were dedicated to off-road users and those who wanted to try a car that can make a statement on bad roads, the current Mercedes G-Class became an icon for the German brand and a very expensive car, ready to even race on a circuit.
The G65 AMG version is ready to be unloaded on the US shore at a starting price of $217,900 USD, joining the G550 and the G63 AMG models, already on the market. The new G65 AMG will reach its first customers in November, joining the US performance fleet like G550 and G63 AMG.
As you may already know, the G65 AMG features a V12 bi-turbo engine, delivering 621 hp and 738 lb-ft. of torque, with an estimated 0-60 mph acceleration in 5.3 seconds. The G-Class is the only off-road vehicle in its class to combine the electronic traction system 4ETS with a transfer case and three 100% differential locks.
Standard and optional equipment and more detailed specifications will be available closer to the November 2015 U.S. market introduction.
