How can one differentiate between these two trims, then? For starters, the AMG Line includes 20-inch wheels, a sunroof, ambient lighting, Nappa leather interior and a Burmester audio system. Meanwhile, the Adventure Edition sports a roof rack, spare wheel holder, full-size spare wheel on the tailboard, logo projector and multifunction wheel with Nappa leather upholstery. Plus, it will be offered in four distinct colours — Desert Sand non-metallic, Vintage Blue non-metallic, Travertine Beige metallic, and South Seas Blue metallic.

The OM656 engine used in the G 400d is the most powerful diesel engine in a Merc, producing 326 bhp and 71.38 kgm. A low-range gearbox connects the engine to the four-wheel-drive system. Also, Mercedes claims the G 400d can sprint from 0-100 kph in 6.4 seconds and has a top speed of 210 kph.
