Befitting a rig of its stature, the G550 comes standard with full-time four-wheel drive, a two-speed transfer case and three electrically operated differential locks. Every example gets a 5.5-liter V8 with 382 horsepower and a seven-speed automatic transmission.
As expected, the cabin is festooned with high-quality leather, fine wood and sophisticated electronics, including hard-drive navigation and adaptive cruise control. On the safety front, you get emergency brake assist, lane-keeping assist, a collision mitigation system and automated parking assistance.
With this level of standard equipment, configuring your G550 is simply a matter of personal taste. The only individual options are a heated steering, carbon fiber interior trim and a dark Alcantara (suede-like) headliner. The biggest decision you will face is selecting from the pallet of available “designo” Nappa leathers and exotic woods, which have a mouth-watering effect on interior ambience.
