Mercedes-Benz offering G 550 built specifically for the Canadian market


Mercedes-Benz G 550 is a beast of an offroader and those who like to have a premium driving experience in the middle of the adrenaline rush during an off-road experience, the vehicle is just about the right fit.

Mercedes-Benz have been making their G-Class for the last 37 years by hand and over the years it has won many accolades as well as a loyal fanbase. Mercedes-Benz promises a lifetime of experience inside every G 550 with a class-apart design, high performance, top of the line technology and awesome luxury.

The G 550 promises a new era of performance from its high-output engine that’s more responsive yet more fuel-efficient. A new 416-hp 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 outputs 450 lb-ft of peak torque, and can rush the G 550 4MATIC to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds. Its innovative design combines racing-derived technology, from its turbocharger layout to its low-friction cylinder walls. And an ECO Start/Stop system helps save fuel and emissions at stoplights.

Rugged as the G-Class is, its cabin is outfitted to make sure you’re never roughing it. Its handcrafted workmanship is matched by its cutting-edge technology, from its state-of-the-art COMAND system to its soothing ambient lighting. Its front and rear seats are heated, while the front row is also treated to ventilated and multicontour seating.

Brilliant LED running lamps are sure to get your G-Class noticed by day. Standard Bi-Xenon headlamps practically turn night into day. Heated washers power-spray dirt and mud from the headlamp lenses, to keep them at their peak of performance. And to ease your journey through the urban jungle, the sleek, power-folding side mirrors feature LED turn signals.

Vehicles built specifically for the Canadian market

Mercedes-Benz says that the Canadian market is different. Some vehicle types and engines such as the B-Class, C 350 4MATIC, E 300 4MATIC and S 550 4MATIC short wheel-base are unique to the Canadian market.

When establishing equipment levels for the Canadian market, Mercedes-Benz Canada chooses standard features and equipment that are best suited to meet the challenge of Canada’s wide-ranging environmental and driving conditions in addition to the needs of Canadian customers.

If you are comparing vehicles from other markets, like the United States, please bear in mind this critical component as in many cases, equipped-for-Canada cars are higher equipped than those in the U.S.A. Therefore, a simple Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) comparison is inaccurate at best and only represents part of the entire picture.

There are also market specific equipment differences. Depending on the model, Canadian and U.S. vehicles can differ considerably in terms of specifications. Unlike U.S. vehicles, equipped-for-Canada vehicles may include any of the following features in terms of specification or standard equipment:

  • Heated windshield washer system;
  • All-season tires;
  • Headlamp washers;
  • Bi-xenon headlamps;
  • Heated exterior mirrors;
  • Factory/VPC applied undercoating for corrosion protection
  • Other equipment and/or modifications specific to colder climates.

Whether new or pre-owned, buying an equipped-for-Canada vehicle comes with added benefits such as tailored purchase, leasing and loyalty offers, and warranty and service benefits.
