The "Gelandewagen" was originally designed by Mercedes Benz to be the ultimate in off road vehicles. The G55 is the AMG version of the truck, it expands the parameters of the G Class from the ultimate off-road weapon to the ultimate in on-road SUVís. In this quest, Mercedes has succeeded spectacularly! The G55 is powered by a supercharged 5.5 liter V8 paired to a 5-speed automatic transmission. The hand-built engine puts out 30% more power than the previous yearís naturally aspirated G55, giving stunning performance in propelling the 5,600 pound truck from zero to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds.
