About Mercedes-Benz G-Class

It may be hard to fathom, but one of Mercedes-Benz’s most expensive and rugged vehicles is also one of its oldest. Now entering its 38th year of production, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV (better known as the G-Wagen) has seen many improvements since the original, but at its core remains the same rugged beast. Not as refined as a Land Rover Range Rover, nor as spacious as a Cadillac Escalade, the 2017 G-Class confounds logic as the go-to vehicle for the ultra-rich wishing to impress their friends and enemies. Of course, most will never need or use the G-Wagen’s abilities. However, those who do venture off-road will find themselves behind the wheel of one of the world’s most capable off-road warriors.
