Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Few vehicles have the off-road reputation of the 2008 Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

The Land Rover Range Rover is one; also like the G-Class, it has a breathtaking price tag to go with its legendary capability.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is substantially less expensive but no less talented, though it is finished more inexpensively.
