2011 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

2011 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Review

(3 Stars)  Classic luxury off-roader

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The G class is possibly one of the most recognizable of Mercedes' offering. Combining luxury and off road capability like few other vehicles can, the military based G class has been around since the 1970's and is still going strong today. It has been updated many times over the years, but the overall look and construction remain the same. While many of its sales are due to its hummer with luxury accoutrements, it remains an extremely capable off road vehicle. It's neither practical nor a good value, yet people who can add them to their stable still love them.

The G class is offered in two trim levels. The G550 with a 382 HP 5.5 liter V-8 routing its power through a seven speed automatic transmission. The four wheel drive is of the full time variety with lockable front, center, and rear differentials. The G55 AMG shares the same 4 wheel drive system, but offers a supercharged 5.4 liter V8 good for 500 HP and a 5 speed automatic transmission to get power to the ground. With a 6 figure starting price and over 3 tons of weight, the G series is certainly not the most practical vehicle on the road.
