Mercedes has displayed the G 500 4×4² at the 2016 Auto Expo. The new model is a take on the classic G-class SUV, a car that the luxury brand was planning to scrap altogether. The 4x4² stands two metres tall and is nearly as wide. Its imposing height comes from the car’s 450mm ground clearance, a result of the portal axles incorporated on the SUV. It is capable of fording through water up to one metre high.

Unlike the AMG G 63, which gets the 544bhp, twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 petrol engine, the G 500 4×4² is powered by a twin-turbocharged, 4.0-litre V8 – a unit similar to the one found in the recently launched AMG GT S. It houses the turbochargers within its V-configuration rather than outside the engine bay, making the engine more compact.

With a power output of 410bhp, the engine propels the super-SUV to a claimed top speed of 208kph. Power is transmitted to all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission. The interiors of the G 500 4x4² come upholstered in plush black leather. Mercedes is yet to announce production plans for the SUV, and so, it will be some time before the G 500 4×4² hits the roads.
