In the new G 500 a high-performance 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine ensures powerful propulsion. The new biturbo delivers an output of 310 kW (422 hp) and a maximum torque of 610 Nm at 2000 to 4750 rpm. Further power units are already planned.
Efficiency and effortless power delivery were the top priorities for the new 4.0-litre V8. One factor in this is the special NANOSLIDE® coating on the cylinder walls. This ensures less friction, which helps to improve efficiency and also reduces wear. The biturbo has a cylinder shutoff function to reduce fuel consumption even further. In the partial load range, the variable valve control system CAMTRONIC deactivates four cylinders at the same time. This reduces the gas cycle losses while improving the overall efficiency of the remaining four cylinders by shifting the operating point towards higher loads. Cylinder shutoff is active in the engine speed range from 800 to 3250 rpm in the Comfort and ECO driving modes. When torque increases, cylinders 2, 3, 5 and 8 are unnoticeably reactivated within milliseconds. The G 500 is also equipped with a petrol particulate filter.
