The G550 is a brand new Mercedes truck that has well and truly been designed for the rigors of off-road driving and inconsistent surface navigation.

This particular vehicle stands exceptionally tall, and is nearly a foot taller than the regular Mercedes G series SUVs. Its standout feature is its exceptional ground clearance of 17.2 inches, which allows it to easily evade rocks and other sorts of obstacles on the ground, even if it might make getting into the vehicle a bit of a chore for the vertically challenged. The vehicle comes powered by a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that is capable of pumping out 416 horsepower in conjunction with 450 pounds-feet of torque.

This Mercedes truck is clearly designed for off-road adventurers, as it offers the kind of chassis protection that you need if you're going to be ripping over dust roads and rocky terrain.
