The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is basically a last-generation S-Class interior riding on one of the most off-road-worthy chassis out there; it makes almost no sense, which is why people seem to gravitate toward it. The 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser is every bit the off-road machine that it always has been--but the price is so, so high.
