Scale and Trail Crawler

In 2015, Mercedes-Benz released the limited-production G 500 4x4² to stake its claim as the ultimate off-road vehicle. Outfitted with a powerful V8 engine, dynamic 4WD system, and military-grade portal axles, the G 500 4x4² had no equal. Traxxas honors the engineering masterpiece that is the G-Class with this highly-detailed RC replica. Based on the class-leading TRX-4®, the Traxxas Mercedes-Benz G 500 4x4² features portal axles, a high/low transmission, and remotely locking differentials for superior all-terrain capability. The highly detailed body with unique wheels and tires makes this truck a fitting tribute to the legendary original.
