The Mercedes G500 4×4² is actually a 6x6 minus two (wheels)

At the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes will officially reveal the ‘little’ brother of its formidable six-wheeled off-roader: the G500 4×4²…

For those without the means to secure an ultra-exclusive G63 AMG 6x6 – or perhaps the need for a third axle – the G500 4×4² has arrived to fill the gap between that and the standard G-Wagon. Huge 22-inch wheels and extended Unimog-style wheel arches once again make an appearance, with the increased ground clearance allowing for impressive wading capabilities of around 3ft. Power comes from a 5.5-litre V8 with 422HP.
