Benefits of Driving a 2013 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Sport Utility

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class--otherwise known as the G-wagen or Gelandewagen--is unique in the market as a serious, truck-like mountain goat. While not always the most practical for family needs, the G-Class has toughness for the trail, a comfortable enough ride for the freeway and enough exclusivity to hold its own at the country club. Having been adapted by militaries around the world since the 1980s, the G-Wagon has tremendous all-road tough-truck credibility as well.

What's new for 2013?

After a one-year hiatus, the AMG version of the G-Class is back on the market. Buyers looking for a combination of serious off road ability, plenty of luxury and ludicrously quick acceleration will appreciate its return. The interior of the G-Class has also been given a refresh for 2013. There is a new steering wheel and a new dashboard, which houses a 7-inch display and Mercedes-Benz' COMAND system. Exterior modifications are minor, including new mirrors and LED daytime running lights.

Model Strengths

  • Tough, boxy look
  • serious off-road hardware
  • plush luxury interior
  • modern communication and entertainment features

Model Review

The standard G550 is powered by a 382-horsepower, 5.5L V8. This engine can push the vehicle to 60 mph in just 6 seconds, according to Mercedes-Benz. Fuel economy isn't stellar, but it's reasonable considering what the G-Class was built for: 12 mpg city and 15 highway. For 2013 Mercedes decided that buyers might want even more speed. Enter the high performance G63 AMG. Powered by a twin turbo V8, the G63 produces 544 horsepower, making the big off roader almost unnaturally quick.
