Auto Nation Group, the official distributor of Mercedes-Benz here in the Philippines, has announced it is expanding its local G-Class lineup with the new G350d. The new varian brings diesel performance to the luxury SUV offering to compliment its off-road capability.
How much? The G350d enters the local market with a P10,890,000 price tag. For that amount, you get a 2.9-liter six-cylinder diesel engine capable of up to 286hp and an impressive 600Nm of torque. This is mated to the brand’s 9G-Tronic automatic transmission. The vehicle also comes equipped with a Dynamic Select drive selector that allows drivers to adjust the SUV’s characteristics to their liking.
Outside, the G350d flaunts the model’s signature muscular boxy look and runs on attractive 19-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels. The interior, meanwhile, gets premium leather seats among other niceties, as well as a 64-color ambient lighting setup with 10 color schemes. Entertainment is managed via the vehicle’s large 12.3-inch display, and safety features include adaptive brake lights and adaptive braking assist.
