2014 Mercedes-Benz G Class vs. Its Competition

2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class (G550)
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

There aren't many vehicles that can offer luxury car amenities, lofty prices and prestige, and hardcore off-roading talents left on the market today.

The Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX 570 are essentially the same vehicle, and both can go just about anywhere you point them.

The Lexus comes a with little more weight, a few more features, and slightly improved gas mileage over the Geländewagen, though.

There's also the new Range Rover, which exudes luxury and prestige from every pour, and it feels lighter, smaller and more nimble than the Mercedes–if you can really use those words to describe a vehicle in this segment.
