Get Moving on the Streets of New Orleans, LA in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G 550

January 1st, 2017 by

Originally developed to excel in military, municipal as well as civilian duty, the unmistakably ageless design of the G-Class is a pure reflection of the character within. For example, its flat-glass windows were designed to make emergency replacement easier in the most remote areas of the world. And even now, with its updated and modern details, it still remains uncomplicated, uncompromising and functional, with a shape and size that maximizes interior space while minimizing overhangs for better maneuverability. Polished chrome and stainless steel highlight the enduring quality and class of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G 550. Up front, a stainless-steel front brush guard perfectly frames the chrome three-bar grille and headlamps, while rugged stainless-steel running boards ease your entry and exit. Even the rear-mounted full-size spare tire is protected by a cover trimmed in polished stainless steel, providing the final touch to what is an impossibly impressive design.

Among the many discoveries possible in the new 2017 G 550 at Mercedes-Benz of New Orleans is the lost art of a cabin crafted almost entirely by hand. Abundant luxury, that includes everything from heated 10-way power front seats to COMAND® navigation, delivers advanced technology with old-world quality and uncompromising attention to detail. Supple Nappa leather covers the seats, with more leather top-stitched to the dash and door inserts. Polished wood and chrome accents add a refined feeling of automotive ambience, while advanced technology presents itself to New Orleans, Louisiana owners with ultra-modern style and functional elegance.

Advanced Safety comes Standard

The radar-based Distance Pilot DISTRONIC cruise control conveniently adapts your set speed to the flow of the New Orleans traffic ahead of you, automatically slowing until your path is clear again. If the vehicle ahead slows to a stop, Distance Pilot DISTRONIC can brake to a full halt, then resume with just a tap once traffic starts going again [1]. Radar technology is also used to sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area of your 2017 Mercedes-Benz G 550. Blind Spot Assist automatically alerts South Louisiana drivers via an illuminated red icon in the appropriate side mirror, and also gives an audible warning if they happen to activate a turn signal while a vehicle is detected in their blind spot [2].

In any low-speed maneuver, Parking Assist PARKTRONIC’s ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers of your all-new 2017 G 550 detect nearby objects within the system’s field of view. Audible signals and illuminated displays in the cabin can help you navigate tight spaces in New Orleans, Louisiana with a renewed feeling of confidence [3]. And that’s in addition to the standard rearview camera driver-assistance feature that helps you to see directly behind your Mercedes-Benz G 550 when reversing. Shift into Reverse, and a wide-angle camera mounted in the rear displays a live view of what´s behind the vehicle on the COMAND® screen atop the dashboard, enhancing your overall safety, and the safety of those around you, as you make your way towards your ultimate New Orleans destination [4].

[1] DISTRONIC adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system’s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions. See Operator’s Manual for system’s operating speeds and additional information and warnings.

[2] Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It must not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions. See Operator’s Manual for system’s operating speeds and additional information and warnings.

[3] PARKTRONIC is not a substitute for driver attention to the immediate surroundings, as well as any people, animals or vehicles in or approaching the vehicle’s maneuvering range. See Operator’s Manual for additional information, tips and warnings.

[4] Rearview camera does not audibly notify driver of nearby objects and is not a substitute for actively checking around the vehicle for any obstacles or people. Images displayed may be limited by camera field of view, weather, lighting conditions and the presence of dirt, ice or snow on the camera.

[5] Unsecured cargo can become hazardous in a collision. Always secure cargo using the floor-mounted tie-downs.
