Lightbulb Mercedes Reveals Updated 2009 G55 AMG

Mercedes Reveals Updated 2009 G55 AMG
Mercedes-Benz says the G55 AMG's recent makeover "made this classic fit for the future."
However, we aren't sure if Mercedes is talking about the same future most consumers anticipate.
In the face of reports that gasoline prices may reach $4.50 per gallon by July 4, Mercedes has unveiled a refreshed G55 AMG that features an upgraded 507 hp, supercharged 5.5-liter V-8 engine, a reworked grille, and new 19-inch alloy wheels. While the G55 AMG's power has increased (thanks to the integrations of a new engine control unit), 0-62 mph performance remains unchanged. The G55's electronic stability program also boasts a new and more powerful control unit, and the Mercedes now comes with hill-start assist.
Inside, the G55 AMG gets latest generation telematics equipment, optional heated and cooled seats, and standard designo leather upholstery.
Mercedes has not released new G55 AMG fuel economy figures, but we anticipate the tank-like SUV to achieve no better than 11 mpg city and 13 mpg highway the current G55 AMG is rated for.
