Good news for people who are actually using their G-Wagens properly. Mercedes have just announced a member of the G-Class family the G 500 4×4². The new model takes technology from its tri-axle, six wheeled bigger brother that we featured last year on Lusso and couples with a 422hp four litre V8 biturbo engine.

As well as an updated engine and chassis, the car has been modified to be even better off road, when compared with the old G500, it has over double the ground clearance (a colossal 45cm) and is capable of driving through water up to 1 meter deep.

We’re also looking forward to see whether the 4×4² will receive the same Brabus tuning that the 6×6 did – fingers crossed.
