2009 G-Class Update

Just got wind today that the 2009 G Wagon will start shipping this week.  The facelifted G-Class includes several significant enhancements, starting with the engine.  The MY09 G550 boasts the 5.5-litre V8 engine, with a 30% increase in horsepower, more torque, and significantly better acceleration than last year’s model.  Both models benefit from a new front grille and grille guard, active ventilated front seats, new multicontour passenger seat control, new telematics headunit (including 6.5” display, Bluetooth interface, and all other enhanced media functions – like our other MY09 SUVs), new ESP generation, new interior lighting, and new rim designs. The G55AMG also gets a +1” wheel upgrade and Alcantara roof liner.


G550: $100,250

G55AMG: $119,450
