2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class review: Our expert's take


What it is: Mercedes-Benz focuses largely on road-going manners with its GLE-Class SUV, but the iconic G-Class is a hard-core off-road machine that seats five people across two rows. The G-Class was Mercedes' first SUV, and it competes with the Land Rover Range Rover and Toyota Land Cruiser. The G550 uses a turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine rated at 416 horsepower. High-performance AMG variants are also available. A redesigned G-Class arrives for the 2019 model year.


A Red and Black Edition of the G550 is available.

AMG G63/G65
Mercedes offers high-performance versions of the G-Class in the form of the AMG G63 and AMG G65. Both models feature twin-turbocharged engines — the G63 a V-8 and the G65 a V-12 — that are hand-built. Both include a sport exhaust system, high-performance brakes and unique styling cues.

What’s Special

  • 563-hp, turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 engine (G63)
  • 621-hp, turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12 (G65)
  • Seven-speed automatic transmission
  • Unique grille design
  • Red brake calipers

Most "Solid" and "Comfortable" vehicle driven

This is the most comfortable and secure four wheel drive vehicle I've ever driven. Yes it is "Pricey" but it's worth every penny.
