2015 Mercedes-Benz G Class vs. Its Competition

2015 Mercedes-Benz G-Class (G550)
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

There aren't many vehicles that can offer luxury car amenities, prestige, and hardcore off-roading talents in one package.

The latest Range Rover comes closest, although its shape is thoroughly modern, calling less attention to itself than the G, for better or worse.

The Rangie does offer a supremely luxurious extended-wheelbase model now, which far outstrips the G's features and refinement, not to mention rear-seat comfort.

The Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX 570 are essentially the same vehicle, and both can go just about anywhere you point them—assuming you've fitted the right tires.

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

Quick Specs
7.8
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.
7.6
The 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser is every bit the off-road machine that it always has been--but the price is so, so high.
9.2
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover adds long-wheelbase comfort and Autobiography Black style to an already impressive all-purpose vehicle.
