Thirty is a long time in the automotive especially when you consider many of the vehicle nameplates you see weren’t around then. weren’t even around 10 ago. But one vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz or Geländewagen as it’s affectionately in its homeland, has been around then, since 1979 in

Sadly, the military-grade Mercedes-Benz is soon to meet its demise. but doesn’t mean that the year of its model run should be

The G Wagon is unique in that it uses a body-on-frame design no less than three locking differentials underneath its

The vehicle also comes a luxurious interior, powerful V-8 and horrendous fuel economy—11/15 mpg is hard to come by these even for a full-size SUV.

is hardly impressive, with the tall height certainly felt when going corners. The top-heavy feel requires special attention driving at highway speeds. on the other hand, is nothing of spectacular and when off-road a dedicated four-wheel drive better it.

There aren’t any official safety scores for the G-Class but brakes with brake a litany of airbags and a rearview all make it quite safe.
