Mercedes Is Closing The Order Books On The G500 4×4²

Customers who’ve been thinking of pulling the trigger on a new Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² had better quit procrastinating, because soon the order books will be closed and production will come to an end.

The latest in a string of special-edition G-Wagens, the G500 4×4² features the same kind of portal axles as the AMG G63 6×6 and the Maybach G650 Landaulet, meaning that the wheel hubs are actually lower than the axles. That gives it nearly a foot and a half of ground clearance and a fording depth of three and a quarter feet.

Instead of the AMG-built V8 or V12 engine, though, the G500 version packs a “standard” 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, sending 422 horsepower to all four of the 22-inch wheels. It also does away with the other added features of the AMG and Maybach versions to deliver the high-driving experience without the added fanfare.

Price, as a result, is lower, but only in relative terms. The G500 4×4² retails for €231,693 euros (including 19% tax) in Germany, which puts it far out of reach for most of us. Not to worry, though, because from the end of this month, it won’t be available anymore, anyway.
