In the Austrian factory where workers in blue jumpsuits assemble the Mercedes-Benz G500, there is a sign that reads, “Geländewagen: Robust und Exklusiv.”
That sign describes the character and appeal of the Mercedes off-roader more accurately than anything the marketing department might have dreamed up. The defining characteristics of this vehicle, previously known as the Geländewagen, are indeed its robust nature and exclusivity.
This example, featuring a 5.0L 292hp V8, 5-Speed automatic, and hi/lo range 4wd transfer case, with triple locker differentials, is finished in Tectite Gray Metallic over black leather interior, and is optioned with heated seats, sunroof, cd changer, navigation, bose premium stereo system, and upgraded black 19″ G55 AMG wheels.
Sold new for over $87,500 in 2002, and the body style remained the same until 2018! AMG versions of the G-Wagen regularly sold new for over $200,000! Making these G500’s an incredible value for the money!
