As Mercedes-Benz's toughest and most exclusive SUV, the 2016 G-Class has the luxury credentials and cachet that come with a 6-figure SUV, yet retains the essence, style and hardware of ancestors better known for transporting military troops than Hollywood socialites. Also known as the G-Wagen, this is a real-deal off-roader. With triple-locking differentials, a turbocharged V8 and rugged frame, the G-Class could take you to the ends of the earth. But as with luxury SUV rivals like the Range Rover and Lexus LX 570, one can only smile at the irony that 99 percent of its 1-percenter owners will never leave asphalt. Few vehicles exude the bravado of the G-Class, and the new, roughly $220,000 V12-powered AMG G65 takes things to a whole new level.
