Fully and luxuriously equipped as a G550, and even more so as the G63 AMG, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G Class offers almost everything as standard equipment, leaving few features wanting.

The G550's standard-equipment list runs the gamut, starting with the basic power windows, locks and mirrors; climate control; sunroof; and AM/FM/CD player. It's upholstered in leather, with a heated wood and leather steering wheel, power-adjusted for height and telescopic length. The front seats are power-adjustable ten ways, have memory adjustment, and are heated and ventilated; the rear seats are heated, too, and fold 60/40.

The G550 also has ambient lighting; auto-dimming rearview and driver-side mirrors; stainless-steel running boards; rain-sensing wipers; an integrated garage door opener; and walnut trim. For entertainment, the COMAND controller runs a range of systems through a 7-inch high-resolution screen: it controls satellite and HD radio, iPods and MP3 players, mobile phones via Bluetooth with some voice control for the phone and audio as well as the standard navigation system. There's also a six-DVD changer with video-playing capability; a 40GB hard drive containing maps with space reserved for music storage; harman kardon surround sound; and real-time traffic, weather, news, and restaurant information delivered via Sirius. Mercedes' mobile-connectivity suite, mbrace2, is also fitted, which means in-car versions of Yelp and Facebook, accessible through COMAND.

The G63 AMG has very few non-performance features to add to the extensive list, other than AMG-specific trim and badging. The leather trim is Nappa, and the headliner is Alcantara sueded material. The shifter is AMG's design, covered in wood and leather, and the gauges are AMG-spec, with metallic trim. Piano-black trim is specified in the place of wood, though it's possible to order your G63 as you want it.

Conclusion

Mercedes embraces connectivity in the G Class with streaming audio, mobile Yelp listings, and a big LCD display.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
