Review of the 2004 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

  • Although extremely capable in the wild, its primitive nature on the street makes it more of a high-priced novelty than a true luxury SUV.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Go-anywhere capability, powerful V8 engine, surprisingly quiet on the highway.

  • Cons

    Heavy steering and accelerator pedal efforts, no side airbags, poor ergonomics, uncomfortable rear seat, not much cargo room.

  • What's New for 2004

    A trio of premium features becomes standard: multicontour front seats, a Harman-Kardon audio system and rear parking sensors.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G55 AMG 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 5A)

wonderful vehicle, but i would really like a 6 speed manual transmission on one.A superb field vehicle.no problems yet.the main competitor in Trinidad are the Range Rovers and the X5's.they cant handle the off road terrain

This is the ultimate SUV, it knocks the socks off the Range Rover and the X-5. Performance-wise there's nothing like it on the road, and definitely nothing like it off road.

I am actually writing regarding the 2005 G 55 K (you do not have a rating page for it yet). Edmund, I have to say that I respectfully disagree with your review of that truck. I own one of the first to arrive here in the US (if not the first one), and this truck is OUT OF THIS WORLD. This is the best looking, most trilling truck on the market. The drive is incredible, and uncomparable. The truck sounds like a sport car, speeds like one AND has everything you would want in a truck.

Purchased it about 5 months ago and its an overall great buy, but im not so happy with the reaction on it. people dont like the looks and I dont know if I do. I cant wait for the new generation G to come out.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G55 AMG 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 5A)

This is the most coveted, most durable, best performing Mercedes-Benz I've ever owned. Can't wait 'til the 2005 model appears. Built in Austria by superb craftsmen, this beats anything we Americans turn out in this class.




Best suv available today

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G55 AMG 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 5A)

This is my 3rd G Wagon and I am still amazed at this amazing vehicle.There is nothing out there that even comes close.No Range Rover,no Landcruser and definetly NO HUMMER.I drive this car almost 40000 miles a year in the outback of Alaska and if there was anything as formidable as the G Wagon believe me I would buy it.Look out for the 2005 G55 Kompressor.Almost 500HP and 550ft. of torque. Where will it end.
