The Mercedes-Benz G 350 CDI now has a much cleaner BluTEC solution fitted to it. It is said to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by up to 50%.

The thirty one year-old Mercedes-Benz G-Class off-roader brand is now being offered with the company's BluTEC emissions control technology. The main aim is to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by using something called AdBlue which is an aqueous urea solution that is injected into the exhaust-gas stream though its own filler cap located in the vehicle's outside tank recess.

It then helps release ammonia which converts up to 80% of the nitrogen oxide into harmless nitrogen and water by a process of reduction in the downstream SCR catalytic converter. One tankful of AdBlue will last around 12,000km (7,456 miles).

The car's V6 turbo diesel makes 155 kW (210 PS / 208 hp) at 3,400rpm and delivers peak torque of 540Nm (398 lb-ft) between 1,600rpm and 2,400rpm. It is mated with a 7G-TRONIC transmission. Mercedes-Benz says NOx emissions have been reduced by around 50% from the previous G 350 CDI.
