Mercedes has upgraded the G55 AMG inside and out while keeping all the comfort and sporting appeal that the AMG names suggests. The most notable change is the upgraded performance from the AMG supercharged 5.5-liter V8, which now makes 507 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. With the performance upgrade, the G55 AMG goes from zero to 60 mph in less than 5.5 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. The G55 AMG gets a revised radiator grille with three horizontal body-color bars and chrome inserts as the biggest exterior change. Also included are a set of new 19-inch AMG polished light alloy wheels and stainless steel running boards. Twin oval chrome tailpipes and body-color bumpers complete the AMG look. Inside, the technological improvements include a more powerful control unit for the Mercedes Electronic Stability Program (ESP), along with hill-start assist that Mercedes says “eliminates the need to use the parking brake” in many cases. The latest in telematics equipment is also included on the G55 AMG, including rapid HDD navigation with aerial view, COMAND APS with a high-definition 6.5-inch color display, a 4-GB memory for music file storage and a universal interface for electronics devices. Cosmetic upgrades include leather upholstery, decorative wood trim including a wood/leather steering wheel, and of course a plethora of AMG logos. The G55 AMG goes on sale in September in Europe, priced at the equivalent of $191,490. It’s slated for an on-sale date in the U.S. in October. What this means to you: The stalwart G-Wagen offers as much luxury as utility.
