Boxy and bold, the 2008 Mercedes-Benz G500 nears its 30th year in production, which says a lot in regards to its continued popularity with SUV buyers. It can go just about anywhere with plenty of handling and power, but also offers a comfortable and quiet highway driving experience. The G-Series is offered in G500 and G55 AMG trims with engines ranging from a 292 horsepower 5.0-liter V8 to a 493 horsepower 5.5-liter V8 with automatic transmission as standard. Standard equipment includes dual zone auto climate control, cruise, navigation, heated seats and ABS.
The 2008 G-Class is Mercedes-Benz' largest SUV, with 124 cubic feet of interior passenger space and 45 cubic feet of cargo capacity. The standard 5.0L V8 and available 5.5L V8 powertrains endow the G-Class with an impressive 7,000-pound towing capacity, and also make the G-Wagen the most powerful SUV in the Mercedes-Benz stable. The G-Class upholds the Mercedes-Benz reputation of unmatched luxury, but it is also sturdy and capable enough to be a rugged off-road machine. Its military heritage and high build quality means it has a pedigree few of its luxury-oriented peers can compete with.
For 2008, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class undergoes minor changes. Both the G500 and the G55 AMG receive a redesigned instrument cluster and steering wheel. A rearview camera is now standard, as is hands-free communication potential. Base prices have only slightly increased over 2007.
Known as a Gelandewagen (or cross-country vehicle) at home, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class was originally built as a military vehicle. Offered for many years to European customers, Mercedes-Benz finally brought the vehicle to North America in 2002, and named it the G-Class. Appropriate to its military heritage, the G-Class continues to be built with heavy-duty truck-style suspension and axles for 2008. The solid front and rear axles and three locking differentials will appeal to fans of hard-core off-roading, which is where the G-Class shines brightest.
