Sure, crossovers make more sense as luxury vehicles. But that's not why you want a 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class in your garage.The 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a soldier in a business suit.

That “clunk” the doors make when they close

Faster than it ever should be

Light on safety tech
G550 4x4² presents many urban challenges
New 2019 just around the corner

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class remains mostly unchanged for 2018. It will be fully redesigned for the 2019 model year. To commemorate the end of a very long production run, a few special-edition models be available and are limited to cosmetic touches inside and out.

PROS
Iconic design is instantly recognizable
Outstanding forward visibility
Unusually quiet when on the road
Lots of cosmetic customization potential

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

The 2018 GMC Yukon XL receives only minor changes. The Denali version comes with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that should slightly improve fuel economy and acceleration. Other changes include a new chrome grille design and a new Denali Ultimate package with 22-inch wheels, a sunroof and a large helping of tech add-ons.

pros
Seats up to nine passengers
Plenty of cargo capacity, even with all the seats deployed
Can tackle rough terrain when fitted with four-wheel drive
High towing ratings

cons
Size, weight and length make it unwieldy around town
Slow gas pedal response makes engine feel weaker than rated
Cargo space utility is limited by high load floor

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Safety alert driver's seat available
Quiet cabin
Spacious interior
Easier-than-expected maneuverability

Cons
Trucklike ride with body roll in corners
Small cargo space behind third row (regular-length Yukon)
Interior design too similar to Chevrolet siblings
Some dashboard buttons could be larger
