Mercedes-Benz gears up for an extraordinary increase in prices of the G-Class in Germany but in the United States, the Three-Pointed Star is much obliged to present yet another special edition of the luxury off-road SUV.
“Edition 550” is the name of the new fellow and it is a moniker that references the G550 on which it is based. The production is limited to 200 samples. The Edition 550 is available in three colours: Jupiter Red in the main photograph, Arabian Grey, and Moonlight White. The latter is arguably the most special because it comes from the Manufaktur in-house customisation division. Unfortunately for prospective customers, it is not known yet how much Moonlight White adds to the sticker price of Edition 550.
The German automaker has not even bothered to publish the starting price of the glorified visual package. Mercedes-Benz USA still lists the 2021 model on their website from N51.7 million for the G 550 and N65 million for the G 63, excluding destination.
Loaded with upmarket goodies, Edition 550 is rocking two-tone leather upholstery of the Nappa variety. Diamond stitching on the Active Multi-contour seats and carbon-fibre interior trim also needs to be mentioned, along with an exclusive badge of the vehicle’s silhouette on the centre console.
Two more silhouette badges complement the black V8 badging located behind the front wheel wells. The passenger grab handle brings the point home with “1 of 200” and “Edition 550” uppercase lettering.
Just like the 2021 model, the 2022 G-Class Edition 550 takes its mojo from a 4.0-liter TT engine that produces 416 horsepower on tap. Peak torque is listed at 450 pound-feet (610 Nm) between 2,000 and 4,750 revolutions per minute, which is not bad at all for a V8 model of this displacement. Capable of hitting 60 miles per hour (97 kilometres per hour) in 5.6 seconds, the 550 is electronically governed to 130 miles per hour (209 kilometres per hour).
