Mercedes went on an electrification spree at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, Germany. One of the cars unveiled here was the EQG, the EQ electric equivalent of the legendary G-Class SUV, or more popularly known as the G-Wagen. The off-roader is one of the most iconic models ever built and is still going strong despite its boxy and old-school demeanor. In fact, that is the one thing that’s still attracting purists.

2021 Jaguar XF and XE R-Dynamic Black

2021 Jaguar XF and XE R-Dynamic Black

The new R-Dynamic Black pack further improves the look of the XE and the XF

Last year, Jaguar launched the R-dynamic package for the smaller Jaguar XE, and for 2022, the Jaguar XF joins the party. However, for 2022, we’re looking at the R-Dynamic Black package that brings a lot of new standard features to the XF and adds some extras that the XE didn’t get last year.

For starters, both models will feature black mirror cams, 19-inch wheels, red brake calipers, and black window trim. The XE and XF now feature privacy glass (tinted windows) and the panoramic sunroof. While other black accents have been added to the front grille, fender vents, and badging. On the inside, the XE features a Gloss Grey Figured Ebony interior whill the XF gets Charcoal Ash wood veneer. Bright pedal faces land below the dash while the XF now comes with an improved cabin lighting system with 30 colors as opposed to the original 10.

As for the powertrain, both cars in R-Dynamic Black trim come with the 2.0-liter four-cyliner engine with a thirst for gasoline or diesel. If you opt for the diesel powertrain, you’ll have the added benefit of Jaguar’s new 48-Volt mild-hybrid system. An eight-speed automatic sends power to the rear wheels of each car. In terms of power output, those equipped with a gasoline engine will deliver either 250 or 300 horsepower while the diesel model will give just 204 ponies. The most powerful XE will get you to 60 mph in around 5.6 seconds while the XF will make the same sprint in 5.8 seconds. Top speed for both is limited to 155 mph.

The new R-Dynamic Black Edition is available for order now and starts out at £33,740 for the XE or £37,535 for the XF. As of the time of this writing, those figures computer to $46,634 and $51,879, respectively.

With The New Off-Road Trim, Mercedes G-Wagon Returns To Its Military Roots

The Mercedes G-Wagon Professional Line is not your typical, flashy G-Wagon, as It doesn’t mind getting dirty

The Mercedes G-Wagon is one of Mercedes’ signature vehicles. None of the other German premium carmakers have an analog to it. For decades the Mercedes G-Wagon has been every rich person’s favorite way of giving the middle finger to all “plebians mopping around in a Corolla or an Elantra”. The boxy SUV has been interpreted by many tuners, such as BRABUS, MANSORY, and others, giving it an aggressive design, and making it appealing to people like celebrities and drug dealers.

However, the boxy SUV has much humbler beginnings, as it was originally developed as a military vehicle. It seems Mercedes remembered that and decided to give us a G-Wagon that doesn’t mind getting dirty.
