There aren't many vehicles that can offer luxury car amenities, prestige, and hardcore off-roading talents in one package.
The Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX 570 siblings are also old, but not nearly as ancient as the G-Wagon.
They can both 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.
The Land Rover Range Rover is the G-Class's closest competitor, though 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.
