Mercedes BlueTec Models Take a Bump with a New Lawsuit

In February, Mercedes-Benz was dragged into a class action suit filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. In the suit filed by Texas law firm Hagens Berman, it was alleged that the three-pointed star brand used a cheat device to manipulate the emission figures of its BlueTec diesel models.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class retained the same look that it had since it first came out. However, it remains a beast both on and off the road. One video captured by guys who appeared to be riding a Ford Fiesta ST shows the power of the G-Class. The gentlemen were traveling around 62 miles per hour along the highway, when suddenly a black Mercedes-Benz G550 came overtaking by their side. Now, there’s no shame in that because the G550 is equipped with a powerful 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine. The power unit provides the iconic SUV up to 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque.
