#Automobiles: 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Pricing Starts At $120,825

When we got the first details on Mercedes-Benz’s 2016 G-Class range, it wasn’t clear the specifications that would be available in the United States. Now we know what will be on offer here, and how much they’ll set you back.

Opening bids for the G550 will start at a heady $120,825, including a $925 destination charge. As we learned in May, motivation will be provided by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, which is both more compact and more powerful than the 5.5-liter mill of the outgoing model year. The new mill pumps out a healthy 416 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque.

Predictably, the body and ladder frame construction, permanent all-wheel drive, and triple shot of differential locks remain, and the suspension now gets Sport and Comfort modes not found on current models.

Prices for the G63 AMG will begin at 140,825, including the $925 destination charge, and the additional $20,000 provides for the familiar twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8, which delivers 563 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. The extra grunt shaves half a second off the big rig’s zero to 62 mph time, meaning it needs just 5.4 seconds to get the job done.
