Today Daimler AG announced plans to introduce the first all new Gelandewagen for decades, code-named the W464.
After a two year research project involving extensive market surveys Mercedes have decided to take a different track with the new W464, from its luxury predecessor.
The new W464 will be targeted at light commercial, service industry, overland travellers and offroad enthusiasts and its design is focussed on maximum reliability over excessive electronics and gadgetry.
Standard fittings include portal axles, tyre inflation system for its 35" tyres, snorkel for 1.0m wading depth, hose out interior, 160L fuel capacity and other additions to enhance its offroad capability.
Most importantly prices are expected to start at $AU40,000
it's a good one, isn't it? thanks Graham from AGOA for this inspirational press release
my favourite bit is:
haha that's about 100K under a realistic MB-aust price gouging figures we'd typically get....Most importantly prices are expected to start at $AU40,000
it's almost believable...
