Tough, boxy look; serious off-road hardware; plush luxury interior; modern communication and entertainment features
The standard G550 is powered by a 382-horsepower, 5.5L V8. This engine can push the vehicle to 60 mph in just 6 seconds, according to Mercedes-Benz. The high-performance G63 AMG is powered by a twin-turbo V8 producing 536 horsepower, making the big off-roader almost unnaturally quick.
Thanks to a serious mechanical 4-wheel-drive system, complemented by modern electronics, the G-Class has the goods for serious off-roading as well as simply taking on slippery road conditions. The system comes with three differential locks to distribute power in whatever way is best for the conditions. On- or off-road, traction is aided by the electronic stability control system, which also helps distribute power left to right.
The G-Class is a truck-like SUV in look and feel, yet its interior is appointed with top-notch luxury materials, including premium leather, burl walnut trim and wood and leather trim elsewhere.
Inside, the G-Class provides a very upright driving position that is different from that of any other vehicle from the brand's lineup. The rear seats even have enough room for adults, but they're not as easily reconfigurable for cargo when compared to most modern SUVs. Also, the back door is hinged on the side rather than the top.
Cruise control, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, rear heated seats and a parking assistant are included with the G-Class, as well as a heated steering wheel and heated and ventilated multi-contour front seats. There's also a premium, 610-watt Harman/Kardon audio system that also features an SD memory card slot, iPod connectivity and Sirius satellite radio and HD radio tuners. The navigation system includes a 40-GB hard drive as well as live traffic info and Zagat restaurant ratings.
The G-Class carries into 2015 unchanged from last year.
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class--otherwise known as the "Gelandewagen" (off-road vehicle) in German, is unique in the market. It features an old-school truck body-on-frame chassis and military credibility. Mercedes-Benz has given the G-Class extraordinary toughness for the trail, surprising comfort for freeway driving and luxury enough to hold its own at the country club.
The G-Class starts at $115,400, but the G-Class's unique packaging and outstanding off-road credibility means there's no competition in this segment.
