Mercedes G-Wagen blows by Ford Fiesta ST
And the G550 doesn't even need pavement to do it.
These Czech guys know that pain, but not because they were passed by a rusty Skoda. No, they were passed, while traveling at 62 miles per hour, by a new Mercedes-Benz G550. "Well yeah, the G-Wagen is big, heavy, and boxy, but it's also got a 416-horsepower, 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 under the hood," you're saying. "No shame in being passed by that, right?"
Well, not exactly. Because as you're about to see in the video, the G-Wagen doesn't just pass what we're thinking is a Ford Fiesta ST – it's a three-door body with Molten Orange paint – it leaves it in the dust. And it does it all while traveling off road. Yes, this G-Wagen blows the doors off this hot hatchback without even setting a wheel on pavement. This is what being humbled looks like.
