Mercedes G Class BRABUS Ride Control

The German Mercedes G-Class models received a tuning package from aftermarket specialists BRABUS. To be more precise, all vehicles are equipped now with the new Electronically Adjustable BRABUS Ride Control Suspension. This package was offered so that owners could enjoy a smoother ride without compromising the high level of driving safety. This innovative feature combines the ride comfort with sporty handling and of course, safety reserves. The Electronically Adjustable BRABUS Ride Control Suspension contains gas-pressure shocks both for the front and back axles replacing the production components. In front of the shifter a stylish aluminum control switch lets drivers choose between different damper settings. The Ride Control controller commands the electronically controlled valves in each shock absorber to switch to the selected mode. This way it can dampen softer or firmer. The shift takes only 5 milliseconds and it can also be done while the car is still moving. When the engine starts it continues with the last active setting before engine stop. The suspension concept developed by BRABUS for the Mercedes G-Class features several advantages that are very clear. It can offer higher comfort rate in comparison with the standard model and this feature is more obvious at low speeds on both rough roads and in terrain. In the other situation, if the car is moving at high speeds, the firmer sport damper settings offer more dynamic handling and increased safety reserves, like mentioned above. This new package is available for all Mercedes G-Class vehicles no matter the body style. It can be offered to models from G 350 CDI to the G 500 and the G 55 AMG. The results of months of hard work finally pay off for the BRABUS aftermarket specialists.
