Despite the camo, the upcoming G-wagen is easy to pick out of a crowd. BY BRIAN SILVESTRO AUG 25, 2021https://www.youtube.com/embed/tuTwRwzQ03M?start=0&autoplay=1&enablejsapi=1&mute=1
The G-Wagen 4×4 Squared is arguably one of the coolest vehicles ever to come from Mercedes-Benz. With its revamped suspension, fender flares, and massive tires, it was the perfect SUV to stand out amongst the masses of standard G-wagens, Range Rovers, and Porsche Cayennes on Rodeo Drive. It’s no surprise then, to see a new version testing on the streets of Los Angeles. ADVERTISEMENT – CONTINUE READING BELOWThis content is imported from YouTube.

A video published on YouTube last week by KindelAuto shows what looks to be an upcoming 4×4 Squared based on the newest generation of G-wagen. Like the original, the taller ride height, gigantic rubber, and accompanying flares are clearly visible and on display, despite the selectively applied camouflage there to hide it.
Interestingly, this test mule doesn’t seem to have the rally-derived parallel suspension uprights on each corner found on first 4×4 Squared, so it’s possible this could be a highly modified tuner special based on a standard G63. But given the Michigan manufacturer plates out back, we’re inclined to believe this is a real Mercedes test mule. Either way, we’re all for more G-wagens with fender flares and off-road tires.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a new 4×4 Squared out testing shod in camouflage. Back in February, a video surfaced online of two test mules testing in the snow somewhere in Europe wearing similar equipment.
