Overview

What's New in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz G 550?

There are no major changes to the Mercedes-Benz G-Class for the 2014 model year. 

Which G 550 is the Best?

The cheaper G550 delivers a reasonably competent drive, and its V8 is surprisingly responsive. But for those seeking snorting, thrilling performance, the gaudy yet potent G63 AMG is the G-Wagen of choice. Either way, spendy SUV shoppers are treated to a uniquely stylish driving experience when they opt for a Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

How Much Does a 2014 Mercedes-Benz G 550 Cost?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is available in two trim levels: the G550 and the high-performance G63 AMG version.

The G550 ($114,200) is powered by a 5.5-liter V8 and comes with a rich list of standard items, including adaptive cruise control, blind spot assist, a Harmon Kardon Logic7 surround sound system and heated and ventilated seats. As such, the G550 model's only available options are a yearly mbrace package with enhanced mobile app functionality ($280 annually, following a free 6-month trial); mbrace PLUS concierge service ($20 monthly, following a free 3-month trial); and Mercedes-Benz apps with Internet browsing ($14 monthly, following a free 3-month trial).

The G63 AMG ($135,700) is motivated by a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 producing 536 hp. In addition to the same mbrace, mbrace PLUS and Mercedes-Benz apps options found in the G550, the G63 AMG can be ordered with a $4,950 designer Exclusive Leather Package, which offers diamond-stitched Napa leather.

Safety

Is the 2014 Mercedes-Benz G 550 a Safe Car?

The 2013 Mercedes G550 and G63 AMG come with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and just four airbags: two in front and two full-length side-curtain units.

The available electronic safety aids are numerous, including the new mbrace safety/telematics system that connects with compatible smartphones and computers. Rather than go through each high-tech safety feature here, we'll simply suggest visiting the Mercedes website for more information.

There have been zero crash tests of the G-Wagen on our shores thus far, and this trend is not likely to change.

Competition

2014 Mercedes-Benz G 550 vs the competition

Infiniti QX80 -- Based on the excellent overseas Nissan Patrol SUV, the QX is a legitimate off-roader and its styling rivals that of the G-Class model for sheer audacity. Plus, it costs tens of thousands less.

Land Rover Range Rover -- The recently redesigned Range Rover is much lighter than its predecessor, enabling it to run circles around the portly G-Wagen. But does it look as hardcore as the Benz? You be the judge.

Porsche Cayenne -- If you like to take the occasional aggressive corner, the G-Class won't get the job done, but Porsche's athletic crossover just might. Definitely the driver's choice in this class.
