2017 Mercedes-Benz G350d Professional

Mercedes-Benz is a brand most often associated with high-end luxury vehicles and they’ve spent a lot of time and effort confirming the association. Their G-class line of SUVs, while being rugged and capable, still fit well within the boundaries of the company’s reputation, which isn’t really a problem for anyone that wants one – unless you can’t come up with the six-digit sum required to make the purchase. Mercedes seemed hellbent on retaining this high price point. That is, until now. We’d like to introduce you to the G350d, an entry-level version of their fabled G-class of SUV.

One of the more notable alterations is the lack of chrome. The front bumper has been swapped with a steel one, the grill is now matte black, and the wheels are 16-inch alloy–all of which, look very good, despite the lack of shine. Under the hood sits a 3.0L V6 turbodiesel engine that provides 245 horsepower and 442 lbs of foot-torque–hardly something to scoff at. With a starting price of €79,968–just shy of $90k USD–the G350d is the cheapest entry in the series by nearly $30k. For now, however, Mercedes-Benz does not have plans to release this beast in the USA.
