The G-Class exploring a quarry - Offroad Tracks Part II.
G 500: Fuel consumption combined: 12.3 l/100 km; combined CO₂ emissions: 289 g/km.*
Off-road Instructor Christian Vis takes the G-Class to one of the most demanding off-road courses in the world. At the Hartsteinwerk in Kitzbühel the G 500 is allowed to plow through icy rubble, gravel and sand. With its continuously improved technology and high-class equipment specification, this all-terrain icon has consistently satisfied the highest expectations of off-road fans.

The new 8-cylinder powerplant in the G 500 can point to an exclusive heritage. It is based on the new generation of V8 engines developed by Mercedes-AMG. For use in the G-Class, the V8 has been modified to deliver 310 kW (422 hp) with torque of 610 Newton metres. Other standout attributes include a spontaneous response and high tractive power made possible, for example, by two turbochargers, which instead of being configured on the outside of the cylinder banks, are arranged between them in the V – the so-called “hot inside V”. This layout allows a compact design, optimal response and low exhaust emissions.
As is typical of the G-Class, the new models retain the familiar sturdy basis of body and ladder-type frame, which still offers generous reserves to cope with the increased power. Also retained is the unrivalled off-road performance with permanent all-wheel drive, low-range gearbox and three differential locks that can be engaged/disengaged while on the move.
