Mercedes G-Wagon Gets Exclusive Maybach Treatment: Video
There is no doubt that the Mercedes G-Class stays on top of the list when we talk about big brawny SUV’s. However, that does not actually take away the fact that the G-Class has remained almost unchanged since it entered the market. Off course, the SUV has received some exciting variants like the G63 6x6 but it looks like a Mercedes-Maybach has decided new G-Class will receive a full Maybach treatment before Mercedes introduces the new generation SUV.
Although there have been no official words yet from the luxury car manufacturer about its existence, but a recent Walkaround video of the SUV gave us a full glimpse of the SUV in the flesh. Surprisingly, the SUV was not covered in camouflage and looked like a production ready variant.
The new Maybach product has been badged as the G650 and will definitely be powered by a powerful V12 Motor. The Walkaround video gave us an idea that the SUV has received Maybach badges as well in different places of the SUV, including the C pillar and also towards the rear profile which proves that this is definitely a Myabach product. The partial convertible top gives it the Landaulet nameplate.
Although bigger alloy wheels and wider tires looked dead gorgeous we were unable to get a glimpse of the interior of this SUV. Expect the big SUV to get all the high profile treatment that you expect from a Maybach product. High quality leather seats, focus on the comfort of the rear passenger seat are only few amongst them.
As far as the Drivetrain is concerned expect it to get the 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 unit under the hood which churns out about 630 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque.
Expect the SUV to be unveiled next month.

Mercedes Benz ‘G’ class is derived from German word ‘Geländewagen’, which means off road vehicle.

Initially it was used in the armed forces around the world, as the off roader vehicle is one of the most powerful car of all time to literally rule any kind landscape, although later the civilian editions came in the fray and generated popularity. In its early days, these cars were not so much luxurious, they were loud, not comfortable, and slow, although with years of refinement they evolved and became more powerful, comfortable and luxurious. Gradually, the car which was marked as the best off roader beast once; became a lifestyle vehicle around the continents.
