Review of the 2005 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

    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.

Mercedes saved the best for

Vehicle: 2005 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G55 AMG 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)

With a 469hp twin turbo V8 Kompressor engine this vehicle has prodigious power. The dual side exhaust sounds incredible. This beast will do zero to sixty in a little under 5.5 seconds which makes it the ultimate sleeper until they hear the substantial roar of the exhaust rattle their ear drums. However when the windows are up you can barely hear it. This is a tight vehicle to say the least. Mercedes teased us all by putting the V8 Kompressor in the last model year for the G - (or is it? - I have heard rumors of possibly continuing the G series under a different manufacturer)




End of the world car

Plenty of power, off road prowess in a luxurious package. If you want to feel the confidence of owning a vehicle that can take it all, that it's fast and responsive, this is the one.
