Overland Classifieds :: 2007 Mercedes-Benz G55 Lifted

The Mercedes G55, much like most Range Rovers and, dare I say it, the new Defender, is a 4WD with very impressive all-terrain credentials, but in most cases, will probably never leave the tarmac. This expensive vehicle has become a status symbol, and with every new model, Mercedes increasingly panders to this image. I was therefore overjoyed when I came across this listing that has been modified for overlanding, and, according to the owner, “It does have some scratches on the passenger side from a tight trail.” Music to my ears.

From the Seller:

The truck is well maintained and has never left me stranded. It’s been on a few camping trips and performs amazingly when the road gets rough. Bulletproof M113K [engine] with 493 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Maintenance history available upon request.”

2007 Mercedes-Benz G55

Power isn’t an issue for the G55, thanks to a 5.4-liter V8 that produces 493 horsepower and a huge 516 pound-feet of torque. Blistering on-road performance is matched with impressive all-terrain specifications, including three locking differentials, four-wheel drive with 50/50 front and rear torque split, 2-speed transfer case, and a four-wheel electronic traction system. Mercedes is well known for its luxurious interiors, and the G55 is no different, showcasing a Designo Nappa leather upholstery, heated front and outboard rear seats, heated steering wheel with multifunction controls, Cockpit Management and Data System (COMAND) with 6.5-inch LCD screen, parking assist, touch-turn signals, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, and much more.
