The new Mercedes G series launched last year and now Mercedes Benz has launched a new diesel version, the Mercedes G 350 d.
The Mercedes G 350 d will be available to order from this month and will launch in the spring, it comes with 286 horsepower (210 kW) and has a 0 to 62 miles per hour time of just 7.4 seconds.
The new OM 656 diesel engine will also set standards in the G-Class in terms of performance – both on and off the road. “Our goal was to increase the performance” while reducing the consumption and improving the noise characteristics at the same time”, stresses Ola Källenius, responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development on the Daimler Board of Management.
The characteristics of the top-notch engine include the stepped-bowl combustion process, two-stage exhaust turbocharging as well as the use of CAMTRONIC variable valve timing. This heats up the exhaust system without driving up fuel consumption. The further advanced NANOSLIDE® cylinder wall coating also reduces friction losses in the piston/cylinder wall system and reduces fuel consumption.
