2009 Mercedes G-Class Gets A Lot More Power, Not A Lot ElseWes Siler5/30/08 12:20pmFiled to: New Cars2009 Mercedes G-Class2009 Mercedes G-WagenG500GalendewagenGwagenJ-LoG-classMercedes59EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkAlready one of the most overpriced and unnecessary vehicles on sale, the 2009 Mercedes G-Wagen is getting more power and more fuel consumption. The G500 gains a new 5.5-liter V8 and with it a 30% improvement in power. While 382bhp and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds might sound ridiculous to you or I, it's positively necessary for the G-Wagen's celebrity clientele, enabling them to run away from paparazzi and run over peons in a much more efficient manner. To disguise the vehicle's thirty-year old shape, Mercedes have seen fit to add fancy new alloys and a cleaner, three-slat grill, too. The sycophantic press release follows the jump.
