The elevated seating position and excellent all-round visibility make it clear from the very first time you sit at the wheel: driving the G-Class is something very special. When you start the engine of the G 500 you cannot fail to notice that under the bonnet there is something exceptional: the tried and proven 5-litre V8 engine, perfectly in tune with the manifold requirements of this versatile vehicle. With electronic petrol injection, three valves per cylinder and electronic mapped dual ignition, it guarantees effortless power delivery at all times. And with 296 hp (218 kW) it can tackle the roughest terrain with the same poise and elegance it displays when breezing along in the fast lane.

And the high-torque diesel engine impresses, not only when driving but afterwards as well. Seldom has a genuine off-roader provided such a compelling mix of power and efficiency, as reflected in the extremely respectable fuel-consumption figures.
The Common Rail V6 diesel engine with particulate filter impresses with its smoothness of operation and exceptionally high output. Already in the lower-end engine speed range, for instance when driving slowly off-road, or on very steep slopes, it develops its full power output. The standard-fit fuel filter with water separator protects the G 320 CDI optimally against soiling. For a long diesel life.
The G 320 CDI is available not only as a cabriolet, but also as a cross-country vehicle with a short wheelbase and with a long wheelbase
