Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A Mercedes-Benz G-Class isn't a logical buy, but that's just why it has endured so long. Not everyone wants an economical sedan, after all.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class has moved far from its roots as a utilitarian vehicle designed with soldiers in mind.

Pros
Authentic design and heritage
Stellar off road
Luxuriously updated inside
Phenomenal powertrains

Cons
You could buy a fleet of Jeep Wranglers for this money
Dated in every possible way
Sits so high, it comes with its own steps
Requires off-road skill, for better or worse

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class ranks 8 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is more of a status symbol than an everyday SUV. It costs more than every competitor, and it isn't particularly practical to drive anywhere but off road. However, if you want something that'll grab attention and impress, it doesn’t get more distinctive than the G-Class, also known as the G550.

Pros
Excellent off-roader
Muscular engines

Cons
Unsettling ride for luxury class
Cumbersome and difficult to handle on pavement
Few driver assistance technologies

By:

For 2017 the G-Class gains a new variant: the G550 4x4², which gains more ground clearance, larger tires and a revised suspension. New cosmetic packages (Designo Manufaktur Luxury and Mojave packages, Night package) have been introduced.

Pros
Iconic design is instantly recognizable
Outstanding forward visibility
Unusually quiet when driving on-road
Lots of cosmetic customization potential

Cons
Awful steering, handling, drivability and fuel economy
Difficult to get into and out of
Poor interior packaging leaves little useful space
Compromised off-road ability
