Mercedes-Benz New Zealand has announced that the G-Professional Cab Chassis is now available here, as well as across the Tasman. Built at the same facility as the iconic G-Class off-roader and leveraging the decades of continuous improvement of the mighty G-wagen’s off-road capability, the new G-Professional Cab Chassis has a 2,085kg payload (4,490 kg GVM) without a tray, 245 mm of ground clearance; three differential locks that can be shifted to low-range on the move, a 650 mm fording depth capability and adjustable engine speed control. External features fitted as standard include a snorkel; bull bar, headlight and indicator protection painted in black, radiator and sump shields, 16-inch alloy wheels and all-terrain tyres. A walk-on bonnet featuring reinforcement ( load limit 100kg) and a non-slip coating is available, as is a cyclonic air filter that is designed to separate dirt and dust from the air before entering the traditional panel air filter under the bonnet. Fitted with permanent all-wheel- drive with a 50: 50 front-rear split, the G-Professional has an approach angle of 38°, departure angle of 35° and a break- over point of 22°. It has a recommended towing capacity of 2,210kg ( braked) and 750kg ( unbraked), and a gross vehicle mass ( GVM) of 4,490kg ( 4.49 tonnes). The fuel tank has a 96-litre capacity, two 12-volt batteries are fitted ex-factory, as well as a tyre pressure loss warning system. A spare wheel is supplied ( loose) as are two wheel chocks but no tray is supplied at the time of sale. Inside, the G-Professional has vinyl seat covers, two waterdrain plugs, rubber floor mats, storage boxes under both seats, air conditioning and a lockable glovebox. The 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine produces 135kW at 3800rpm and 400Nm from 1600 to 2000 rpm, all delivered via a five-speed automatic transmission. An Electronic Stability Program ( ESP) with selectable on/ off function is standard, as is an antilock braking system ( ABS), Brake Assist ( BAS), and electronic brake force distribution ( EBD). Occupants of the two-seater cab are protected by a driver’s and passenger airbag, and security is taken care of by an electronic immobiliser and central locking. The new G-Professional is now available to order with an RRP here of $ 129,900.
