The 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is popular with wealthy clients as a status symbol that makes a bold statement. Objectively, it's an outdated truck-based vehicle that is handicapped by old technology, challenging driving dynamics, an uncomfortable ride and cramped rear seats. Purchasing one will require the suspension of many sensibilities, and this is particularly poignant given that a fully redesigned and thoroughly improved model is on the way.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is offered in G550, AMG G63, AMG G65 and G550 4x42 trim levels. For the substantial starting price of over $120,000, you get a seven-speed automatic transmission, live axles at both ends, full-time four-wheel drive, a two-speed transfer case and three locking differentials, and a towing limit of up to 7,000 pounds. The base G550 comes with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 (416 horsepower, 450 pound-feet of torque) along with 10-way power-adjustable and heated leather-upholstered seats, heated rear seats, power-folding and heated mirrors, adaptive cruise control, dual-zone climate control, a navigation system and premium audio.
The AMG G63 upgrades to a 536-hp 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8, 20-inch wheels, larger brakes and a performance-tuned suspension. It's also eligible for a dizzying array of customization options through the AMG Performance Studio. The AMG G65 receives a 621-hp twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12, 21-inch wheels and unique upholstery.
The bonkers G550 4x42 will set you back more than $227,000 and ups the all-terrain quotient with high-riding portal axles, 22-inch wheels, larger-diameter tires, twin coilover-damper assemblies at each wheel, wider fender flares and skid plates.
