2005 Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV G55 AMG 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

With a 469hp twin turbo V8 Kompressor engine this vehicle has prodigious power. The dual side exhaust sounds incredible. This beast will do zero to sixty in a little under 5.5 seconds which makes it the ultimate sleeper until they hear the substantial roar of the exhaust rattle their ear drums. However when the windows are up you can barely hear it. This is a tight vehicle to say the least. Mercedes teased us all by putting the V8 Kompressor in the last model year for the G - (or is it? - I have heard rumors of possibly continuing the G series under a different manufacturer)


Favorite Features

The engine and everything to do with it. The seats are also very comfortable and the view is excellent for drivers of all sizes. A short person will have no problem driving this vehicle and maintaining good seat position with a clear field of view. My wife loves it which says it all.


Suggested Improvements

The doors are so heavy you have to be fairly strong to close them - not good for a child. You would almost certainly have to close the door for children less than 10 years of age. A DVD player as an option would be nice for the kids. I like the jump seat idea. Aftermarket items are slim to none.

2005 Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV G55 AMG 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

Plenty of power, off road prowess in a luxurious package. If you want to feel the confidence of owning a vehicle that can take it all, that it's fast and responsive, this is the one.


Favorite Features

Speed, strength, visibility, uniqueness, quality. The sound of the exhausts!!!


Suggested Improvements

Stereo is only subpar (the one in the range rover is better). Jump seats should be an option in the back. Well, but this is the last year for this model, so why are we talking about improvements.

Review

THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING TRUCK ON THE MARKET. THE SPEED IS UNBELIEVABLE. NOTHING CAN COMPARE TO THIS SUPERB VEHICLE.


Favorite Features

ACCELERATION. SPEED. TORQUE. LOOK. SHOULDER SEAT BELTS FOR ALL PASSENGERS. THE MUFFLERS AND KOMPRESSOR SOUNDS.


Suggested Improvements

THIS IS THE LAST G55 WITH THE ACTUAL SHAPE. BUT, IF THE TRUCK WAS TO CONTINUE THE ONLY IMPROVEMENT I WOULD SUGGEST WOULD BE TO ADD "AIR SUSPENSION" TO LOWER THE TRUCK FOR LOW GARAGES. BESIDES THAT, THE TRUCK IS PERFECT.
