2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² Features, Technology and Release Date

Well isn’t this a great surprise. When the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² was first unveiled, we did not know that the rugged off-roading SUV would be coming to our shores. Fortunately for all of us, Mercedes-Benz has announced that the G550 4×4² will in fact be making its way to the U.S! Here is what we currently know about the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² features, technology and release date.

Specially Designed Frame with Plenty of Clearance2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4x4² Ground Clearance

What makes the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² so unique from other G-Class wagens is the unique frame that it is built upon. The ladder-type frame is specifically designed to handle the harshest conditions possible, on and off road. It is made up entirely of steel, and takes over 6,400 individual welds to be assembled. It is dip-primed, powder coated, and all of its interior cavities have been treated with hot wax, which makes this frame ready to handle anything you want to toss the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² through.

One of the biggest issues that people have with off roading vehicles is that their vehicle doesn’t have the clearance to get over some of the most challenging obstacles. That will not be a problem in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4², which thanks to its unique portal axles, gives the vehicle a max load ground clearance of over 17 inches.
