Mercedes Benz is all set to expand its product portfolio with the launch of the G Wagon on the 14th february. The G wagon is a rugged offroader and has a long history associated with it. The Mercedes Geländewagen, which literally means cross country vehicle or the G550 will be powered by a 382 Bhp, 5.5-liter V-8 engine which is mated to a 7 speed automatic transmission with four wheel drive channel with lockable rear differential, front and cente and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in about 6 seconds. Watch out for more from the launch. A whopping 75% or 385 Nm of torque is available just off idle from 1,000 rpm which should most definitely make for some rapid pulling power. The car will be highly priced due to the model being imported into India directly as a CBU (completely built unit).
