This automatic transmission combines a high level of travel comfort with motoring enjoyment and efficiency. It impresses with smooth operation and rapid gearshifts. At the same time, the 7G-TRONIC PLUS transmission contributes to reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
The seven forward gears ensure smaller shifts in engine speed and an optimal engine speed range. Powerful spurts of speed are possible at all times. The transmission system then shifts down one or more gears automatically, and the potential to accelerate soars in fractions of a second.
Gear changes just like in Formula One: Using the DIRECT SELECT steering wheel gearshift paddles, the driver can change gear manually without taking his hands off the steering wheel. Shift modes P, R, N and D can be conveniently selected using the DIRECT SELECT selector lever on the steering wheel.
Only available for the Mercedes-Maybach S 600.
Experience unique gear shifting comfort: We developed and patented a transmission structure that redefines comfortable, efficient, dynamic driving.
With nine forward gears, this automatic transmission enables efficiency, comfort and dynamism of an entirely new dimension. It impresses with even swifter and smoother gearshifting actions. At the same time 9G-TRONIC helps reduce fuel consumption. The ample transmission ratio range results in lower engine speeds.
This way, the excellent driving performance remains unchanged while ride comfort is enhanced and noise levels are reduced. Since the transmission can skip individual gears, multiple downshifts are possible for powerful bursts of speed.
