Mercedes has officially announced that it will put an end to production of the Mercedes G500 4×4² this month

The collapse of the G500 4×4² comes as no surprise since the next-generation G-Class is already planned to launch next year.

Equipped with portal axles and an enormous ground clearance of 450 mm, the new extreme off-roader can handle any terrain. The model also impresses us with a 1,000 mm (39.3 inches) fording depth, so you can basically consider it as a semi-amphibious car.

The collapse of the G500 4×4² is not really a great surprise when the next-generation G-Class is already planned to launch sometime next year

It has large 22-inch alloy wheels accompanied with bulky 325/55 R22 tires and wide portal axles which have expanded the tracks’ 299 mm (11.7 inches) wider than the regular G-Class. The G500 4×4² runs with a biturbo 4.0-L V8 engine which is capable of dishing out 422hp (310 kilowatts).

It was in Decemer 2015 when the Mercedes G500 4×4² first hit to dealerships as a “phenomenal response” to the concept introduced at Geneva Motor Show earlier the same year. While the German brand only offers a limited number of the 6x6 G-Wagen, the G500 4×4² is a mass-produced model. Even so, it is a matter of fact that not many can afford such a luxury off-roader.
