But, an estimate can be made basing on the European market pricing of the G-Class model lineup of the luxury vehicle manufacturer. The AMG G63 is priced at €144,287 while the G500 4×4² is being sold at €230,169. On the other hand, the AMG G65 is priced at €273,938. In the US market, the AMG G63 and AMG G65 are priced at $139,900 and $217,900, respectively. Due to this, the G550 4×4² may be priced right in between these two luxury vehicles once it is available in the US.

The gallery below shows a detuned version of the 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine that is used on the C63. It is capable of producing 416 HP of power as well as a torque of 450 lb-ft. The engine is mated with the 7G-Tronic Plus 7-speed automatic transmission system.

The three locking differentials, portal axles and ground clearance of at least 17 inches allow the Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² to pass through just about any natural obstacle with ease. Aside from its notable performance, the luxury vehicle manufacturer also provided the G550 4×4² with an impressive interior including its eight-inch infotainment system as well as satellite navigations. The Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4² is expected to be released into the US market by the start of 2017.
